Raw Food with David Wolfe, Integrative Nutrition Guest Speaker
(peaceful acoustic guitar music)
I spent 16 to 17 years of my life traveling the world
in an educational program to deliver very important
information about raw and living foods, super foods,
super herbs, living spring water, and the best day ever
to folks who are really hungry for this kind of information.
The Integrative Nutrition students are really committed
as a group.
I’ve noticed throughout my travels around the world
that there are Integrative Nutrition students
in all different countries doing all different kinds of work
related to the environment, sustainable agriculture,
unique types of farming,
doing all different kinds of retreat centers,
activities of ecological sustainability
in the context of politics.
All different kinds of things like that are going on.
And that’s what really kind of turned me on
to The Integrative Nutrition School to a point
where I really am committed to being here every year.
Because I judge obviously,
the fruit tree by the fruit that it bears.
And what’s going on out there,
what I see is absolutely amazing.
I mean people who’ve become yoga teachers,
people who’ve become health coaches,
people who are helping paraplegics,
folks who are out there helping people who are really
strung out on pharmaceutical medications.
And this institute, what it’s doing is it’s allowing
enough educators to be out there to help these people
get back to home.
Get back to their original natural state of feeling good
and healthy and feeling like there’s hope in the world
that things could get better.
It’s been an incredible journey.
I’ve done about 1800, 1900 events over the last
16 to 17 years.
And what my role really is is to demonstrate to people
what choices are really available to them.
We have the greatest choices ever
in the history of the world.
We have the healthiest choices ever
in the history of the world.
And it’s creating that awareness.
And I know that after somebody comes to an event,
or perhaps reads one of my books,
or finds out about me through the internet,
what happens is is there’s a derivative long term benefit.
And that’s such a joy.
It influences people in the health food store
where they suddenly are shopping for organic foods.
It influences folks in a way of looking at raw food
a little bit differently and realizing, okay,
we have to have some raw food in our diet
because that’s natural, that’s the original food
that was here.
It has a very strong influence in demonstrating to people
viscerally in a real vibrational way where you can feel it,
the power of living foods.
In particular, super foods and the living vegetable juices,
fresh vegetable juice and what that can do for you.
And these things just stack over the years.
And what ends up happening is I get folks coming back
10 years later, 12 years later, 14 years later.
And maybe I met them in New York City at a little event
I did in the back of a restaurant or something.
And they tell me how it’s influenced their lives,
their family’s lives, and their kid’s lives.
And there literally can be no greater thing for me
to feel or hear than that.
I mean that really feels to me like, okay I’m doing my job
in the world and it’s a great wonder.
And it’s a win, win, win for everybody.
