(NaturalNews) When John Kohler was in college, severe headaches and pain necessitated an emergency room visit where he endured a painful spinal tap and was diagnosed with spinal meningitis. Doctors delivered the disheartening news that he might not make it out of the hospital alive and attributed his infection to a weak immune system.

Yet today, Kohler lives to tell the amazing journey of overcoming spinal meningitis with a raw food lifestyle. He's been so successful that he's a sought-after raw food expert, coaching thousands on sites like living-foods.com and growingyourgreens.com.

About spinal meningitis

Spinal meningitis is caused either by a viral or bacterial infection that leads to severe swelling in the spinal cord and, ultimately, the brain. Once in the brain, bleeding can occur, making early diagnosis vital. According to the World Health Organization, 5-10% of patients die within 48 hours, despite early diagnosis and proper therapy.

It's an infection often caused in close-proximity situations where saliva is present ranging from intimate behaviors such as kissing to crowded living/social conditions like college dormitories or even day care centers.

Luckily, Kohler was determined to be well enough to head home, where doctors said he should build his immune system.

Choosing raw foods to heal spinal meningitis

Kohler remembers thinking that "health is the most important thing and without it, we don't have anything." Driven by this new mindset, he found comfort when he discovered Jay "The Juiceman" Kordich on television. Kordich, known as the "father of vegetable juicing" says raw foods are responsible for overcoming his own bladder cancer.

Kohler ordered Kordich's juicer and informational tapes. He knew this raw food lifestyle was going to turn his life around when one of the first tapes mentioned how detrimental microwaved and fried foods are to the immune system.

Kohler has been on a raw food diet since 1995, primarily enjoying juices. Not only did he survive his spinal meningitis, but he also lost weight and is living life more healthfully than ever.
