RAW Foods



  • RAW foods helps to reduce acidity in our bodies, decrease inflammation, and increase the amount of enzymes we consume to make digestion and absorption of nutrients easier.

  • Heating food kills enzymes and nutrients when you cook over 112-118 degrees.

  • Well-cooked foods can increase our white blood cell count which initiates an inflammatory response (like when we have infections!)

  • This is why eating processed foods should be kept to a minimum... no good nutrients, enzymes, or antioxidants are left in these foods processed at high temperatures.
