We've all heard of raw food diets and even restaurants that feature 100% raw food meals. So why eat raw food?
Raw Food Diet History
Raw foods as a dietary health treatment was first developed in Switzerland by medical doctor Maximilian Bircher-Benner, inventor of muesli. After recovering from jaundice while eating raw apples he conducted experiments into the effects on human health of raw vegetables. In November 1897, he opened a sanatorium in Zurich called "Vital Force," named after a "key term from the German lifestyle reform movement which states that people should pattern their lives after the logic determined by nature". It is still treating patients today
Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram is a pioneer in the local, organic food co-operative movement and she has been 100% raw for almost 7 years. Kristina's inspiration for being FullyRaw came after she was able to rid herself of Hyperglycemia at the age of 18 eating nothing but a low fat raw vegan diet consisting solely of fresh fruits and vegetables with few nuts and seeds. She wants to inspire people to find their rawness within so that they can find their own health freedom and zest!
