Rawkathon with Gabriel Cousens. Gabriel Cousens is a holistic physician and family therapist. He is the author of Spiritual Nutrition and Conscious Eating.

Kevin: Let`s first start very briefly explaining a little bit to people who may not have seen you before who you are.

Gabriel: OK. Well, my interest in live food started in 1975, which came not for health reasons but because after going deep into meditation, as I came out, a little voice rang out and said you should learn to eat and live in a way that supports unfolding your spiritual energy. At that point, as a holistic physician, a psychiatrist, family therapist, I began to explore the whole thing. Also I was somewhat living in India for a cycle of seven years, so I had access to a whole lot of people who were very interested in the spiritual path. As it evolved over that period of cycle of seven years, it got very clear that live foods was the most powerful support on a dietary level for spiritual life.

In yogic terms, live food represented a very high prana or high life force diet that helped people turn inward to themselves. We used the term sattvic, turn inward to themselves. Other diets, they eat meat. They get rajasic, that`s a term for being active. It`s the executive diet, OK? Then the tamasic diet is equivalent to junk food, drugs, things like that. It kind of dulls consciousness. So it got clear that the most powerful sattvic diet, the diet that turns you in to your own inner experience was a live food diet. Basically it helps people become the super conductor of the divine.

Kevin: Where did (you) learn some of the principles of living foods? Did you have a mentor?

Gabriel: Basically it was primarily my own trial and error. Looking at different diets. Trying different diets. Reading different things. I was exposed to many people. Actually, not so much (in) the beginning. The truth is it took a while to kind of move on just by exploring it. Then after I got more in the live foods I began meeting the people in the live food movement. It was more like that. It was really in 1983 after a 40-day fast, that I went completely 100 percent live food and have been since that.

So that`s 25 years. But it was all self-motivated in the sense that not, "I want to find the best diet for myself," but to really support the thousands of people that I was working with in regard to the best diet for spiritual life, period.

So, it`s all like as a scientist because I published, even in college, papers in biophysics and biochemistry, published in Columbia Medical School and have continued to publish papers. In this case it was just taking the scientific background and saying, "OK. This isn`t exactly perfect. Some people succeed. Some people don`t succeed. What`s going on?" Now we can say, "Yeah it might use jet fuel, but you need to go to jet pilot school because you need to know how to work with it." You need to know how to best work with the energies that get created.

That`s why we`ve come up with the idea of individualizing your diet. There are a variety of different systems that are out there. It`s generally conceded that we have 20,000 to 30,000 different genes, maybe 200,000 different gene variations; there`s not one diet for everybody. Roger Williams in 1950 came out with a book called "Biochemical Individuality." He was a professor of nutrition, biochemistry. We are unique individuals. There is no average person. That`s a myth. So, once we got to understand that you have to individualize your diet according to your biochemical individuality, according to your genetic tendencies, then we started seeing we can get a 100% success rate for people doing it, once they are properly coached, whether you`re needing more protein or more complex carbohydrate and less fat. They`re variations that when you get it together, people can really eat in a way that maximizes their energy and their endurance and their quality of life. That`s kind of one of the big contributions.

We have a Masters program in vegan live food nutrition, and one of our master`s students did an interview of 525 people. These are people that for two years ate at least 80% live, and 87.5% of the people found increased spiritual interest, increased mental clarity, increased emotional balance. That`s a statement there. Something really is happening with the live foods.

You look at the diabetes thing. One of the hidden things in that movie "Simply Raw" - they are reversing diabetes naturally - is that at the beginning that group are like herding a bunch of cats. This is not the easiest thing. Their minds weren`t clear. Their endurance was weak. It`s like, "Whoa." But at the end what they do they do? They walk up the mountain, which is your highest human potential. First of all they couldn`t do that. They couldn`t walk. Second their minds became clear. They began to kind of sparkle in their consciousness. Tremendous transformations in a very, very short time. That`s exciting. So, there`s something going on with live foods that allows that transformation.
