Raw Summit Excerpt with David Wolfe raw food and super food lifestyle guru, author, chocolatier, alchemist, speaker and founder of the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. He has spent the last 15 years spreading the news of great health around the world.

Kevin: I am excited about this call. So David, why don't you just give us a brief explanation for maybe people who don't know you that well. Who you are and a little bit about your story.

David: Well, I started out as a son of two medical doctors. And I grew up inside a medical doctor's office if you can image what that was like. And I've basically been with my dad on a huge array of different types of situations from emergency medicine to automobile crashes to motorcycle wrecks to house calls and I grew up in a very unique situation because of all those experiences. And that I believe is what oriented me towards natural health. Because I never really believed that injecting something was really necessary. And I always felt that I was really the healthiest when I ate natural foods and, in particular, the first time I ever had a fresh tangerine off a tree when we first came to southern California in 1977.

That was, that was a real changing and turning point of my life. Over time I realized that I had dairy allergies. So I got off the dairy products when I was 18 or 19 years old completely. I took away all milk, all cheese, all eggs, everything. And immediately a lifetime of really troubling ear problems went away. And that's how I got really psyched and turned onto nutrition because I thought, wow, everybody says that I'm supposed to be drinking milk and here I stopped drinking milk and I feel better than ever. And I then turned on the reading light, went to work studying nutrition at a really intense level for about, you know, it's been about 15 years, maybe longer. And it's led me all the way to here, which is essentially a raw food, super food, cachou, goji berry, diet and a very light diet that has a lot of water in it, a lot of hydration and a lot more room for doing things and a lot less room for wasting time on making food or going out to restaurants or whatever.

Kevin: And from what I know, you're moving into some amazing territory with the raw
food and living food lifestyle. And this is a territory of success technology using
these foods. Why don't you start a little bit by telling us what the possibilities of that area are.

David: Well, the phrase you are what you eat has never really been explored by pretty
much anyone on the planet. Of course there's been the great herbalists of China and North America and Europe and Asia and India, etcetera, etcetera. But those individuals are one, two, three, four, five out of billions that have been on the planet. It's a very small number of people really become gastronauts is the phrase we like to use. A gastronaut is an explorer of digestive possibilities. And
you are what you eat is so profound when we really begin to moving into high vibrational foods and super foods because it shifts the fundamental quantum field of our whole body, our body may be vibrating at a certain level and based on the food we're eating primarily and then secondarily upon the media we're taking in, the love relationships and everything else that's around us. We then resonate at a certain frequency.

Well if we can get that food up to the highest frequencies possible, it becomes easier to love your neighbor. It becomes easier to feel good. It becomes easier to have fun. It becomes easier to smile. And it takes us out to this understanding that everything in our whole body, every cell in our body, every mineral came from somewhere. And if it came from food that was treated with greed, destruction, fire, microwaving, unconsciousness, then those cells and those tissues are created with some residue of those energies. And if the food transforms into something that's created with love and joy and happiness and is vibrating at the highest level, and then we consume that, then we can transform the quality of the vibration of every single cell in our body. And this is not only leading us even way beyond personal health, I mean we've got the health thing completely sorted out. We have all the technology now to completely reverse anything that's going on inside anybody's body. But we're really taking it to the next step which is beyond just getting into perfect health, which is like super-hero level nutrition where you feel so good every single day that you are activating your mission at a level that you never even could have conceived of before. And that's the down low coming in to our times right now.

Kevin: What an incredible, incredible philosophy. What are some of the ways that you
can know that you're eating the foods that do help you raise that vibration?

David: Well, I think we have to start out with extreme basics. And the basics have to be in place for us to get anywhere. All the great coaches in history have always taught the basics over and over and over again. And those basics are raw plants. That's how we got started on this plant. I mean it's way easy to sneak up on lettuce or a dandelion than it is a rabbit or a deer. It's way easier to eat wild berries than it is to shoot a bird. It's just simple, kind of philosophy and understanding of what we're designed for. And if we take that understanding and propel it to its appropriate level, we can see that we have the possibility that we may have been constructed out of all the wrong stuff and that if we got on the right stuff, everything could change for us. And we could go through a personal transformation. The promise of food then is great. The simplicity begins with raw plants and just using our common sense and relationship to transitioning our diet.

There's no rush really. We just go step by step and start by one simple philosophy. And that is adding in those things that are good. That's it. We're not taking anything away. We're not telling you not to eat this, that or the other thing. We're just saying here, add these things in. And those include raw organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, seaweeds, sprouts, herbs and super-foods. The last of those categories, the super-foods is where we really are seeing major transformational shifts in new people. People who come in and used to try to guzzle, you know five carrots and a big giant bowl of salad and then have ten oranges, don't really feel the same effects as the individual who comes in and starts eating cacao and goji berries and then supplements that with vegetable juice on top of their normal diet, whatever, they're doing.

When you do that kind of super-food diet, let's just take cacao and goji berries, cacao of course is raw chocolate, then what ends up happening is those foods are so nutritious, they're so intensely nutritious, they do the job that lettuce can't do which is affect a feeling or state change, allow us to get into a higher vibration easier. And that's where the super-food technology is really coming in. It's a lot more powerful to feed someone goji berries than it is to feed them an apple. They'll not feel an apple. They won't even notice anything different. But if you feed them goji berries, they go whoa, this food really is affecting me.

Kevin: Yeah. With, with raw food and with people who aren't getting the results that
they're getting, I've seen a lot of people who, who think that just eating raw, and you kind of eluded to it when you said carrots and some other thing, people who are just eating raw, what can you say to them? How can they find their niche in the raw industry? Not the raw industry, but in the raw food world and really get the results they want?

David: Okay, well, if people are having trouble, let's just say for example someone is too

Kevin: Yeah.

David: They're too thin. And I personally believe that if you're too thin that is not a sign
of excellent health. That you need a little meat on your bones, you need a little bit of fat on your body to be healthy. And, and every woman knows that you can't really carry a baby all the way through a pregnancy unless you have some meat on your bones. If somebody's too thin and they've been eating raw foods, then they're probably eating too many fruits and/or vegetables and/or sprouts. And they're not eating enough herbs, super foods and fats and sometimes protein, which would be in the form of super foods in most cases. Like hemp seed, spirulina, bee pollen, etcetera. And I find this all the time that what happens is people take in their prejudice which might be say for example a natural hygiene approach which is you can live on fruits and vegetables, that's all you need, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And they drag that into their life, kind of forcefully and force their body to fit that, that idea. And a lot of times that doesn't work because we need more than just fruits and vegetables or it's possible that we can overeat fruits and vegetables and become either too alkaline, too thin, and not have enough meat on our bones, not have enough calories and protein and fat to really have some mass, if we're in that situation, we can get onto super foods and then get on to more of a blended food approach.

Blended food opens up all that surface area of that food you're digesting. And it's already liquefied so it's easy to absorb. Blended super food smoothies are so much food that there's no way if you drink two blenders full of that stuff per day that you're not going to put on weight. I mean you'll just start bulking up immediately. But that's just one issue that I see. And there are other ones. There's the other side. The other side is all super foods and nothing else. And in that case, you end up bulking up too much and you may not want to bulk up. You may want to thin down a little bit. So that's another case. And there are other little nuances that come up in the raw food circles and each one of them is usually unique to the individual. But there are general statements that we can make. And one of them is, make sure you have a wide array of everything and get out of judgment of like oh this is good, that's bad, this is what I need, that's what I don't need, etcetera, etcetera. Because you might be closing a door that you need to open.

Kevin: So for instance, if you think fat is bad or if you, you don't need a lot of protein,
you're saying maybe you do and to kind of let go of it. [Laugh]

David: Exactly, right. Let go of the judgments or the programming or the book knowledge where you reach a point. For example, I've been a raw fooder for 13 years. My understanding of food combining is way beyond Dr. Shelton's deal that he did 50 years ago. I mean, at this point, I can combine any food in any combination, any time of the day or night and not feel any side effects. I used to feel totally weird unless I combined food properly, meaning ate vegetables with any cooked foods and didn't combine fruits and vegetables together, etcetera, etcetera, those food combining laws. Now that's just totally thrown out the window because my digestion is exactly improved. See we're not just interested in getting people to normal digestion. Of course we can do that, all the
technology is here and food combining is a great part of that. It's an important technology to know. But it is not the end all. It's just the beginning.

Kevin: How can you separate the programming that you've gotten from books and all that and you're intuition? How do you find out which is telling you what to do?

David: That's such a good question because that is essentially the dilemma that everybody is faced with.

Kevin: Yeah.

David: And I believe the best answer to that is continued experience and practice and really tuning into how you're feeling rather than what you're thinking. For example, if you're eating a food and you're thinking about a book that told you that spirulina is pond scum and you're eating spirulina, that's not congruent. That idea that you have in your mind is not in alignment with eating that food. Because, in the back of your mind you're thinking 'oh, this is not good for me because X, Y, and Z told me so'. But if you're into your feeling state and you're looking at the food and going, you know what? Intuitively I know I need this right now and then you get out of mind, you just go to zero mind and you think about something else or you just distract yourself with something like your business or your computer or whatever, then what will happen is that food comes in and it's completely accepted. It's completely utilized properly and we get into a right relationship with food. My goal is to make everybody skilled enough to be able to be their own doctor, their own nutritionist. Because all of us intrinsically have that inside of us.
