Dr. Tumi Johnson, M.D. Since there aren’t very many medical doctors who have embraced a healthy raw diet, it’s interesting to hear why one of the few has chosen to do so. In Episode 28 of the Raw Food Health Podcast, I talk to Dr. Tumi Johnson about why she thinks a raw diet works, how her holistic medical practice integrates nutritional and lifestyle reform into its treatment protocol, the role of movement in health, and much more.

Try The Tasty Paw Paw – The Raw Food Health Podcast Episode 27

It’s Paw Paw Season! There’s a delicious fruit coming into season that might be growing in your back yard, but virtually no one knows about it – Allow me to introduce you to the Paw Paw. The Paw Paw kept Lewis and Clark’s expedition from starving, and fed the early settlers of the United States. It was a favorite desert of George Washington, distracted entire regiments (who preferred chowing down in orchards to to fighting) during the Civil War, and was incorporated into the managed food forests of the Native Americans. Since the industrial agriculture and transportation system took over, though, food has strayed from its local roots, and outside of its native range, the paw paw has been mostly forgotten. In episode 27 of the Raw Food Health Podcast, we’ll talk to Chris Chmiel, a paw paw farmer who founded the Ohio Paw Paw Festival, and now seeks to get this fruit a bit of well-deserved attention. We talk about the paw paw, foraging for it in the wild for fun and profit, the Oh...

Bikram Yoga Creep: Does High-Heat Exercise Detox And Slim You?

Is sweaty bikram yoga good for you? You’ve probably heard your yoga instructor, some celebrity, or your next door neighbor wax poetic about the detoxifying and slimming benefits of doing yoga or other exercises in extremely hot, humid, and unventilated environments. All that sweat carries toxins out of the body and leads to quicker fat loss, the story goes. This belief has become so popular that something I refer to as “bikram creep,” has taken hold in the yoga and general fitness world, and now completely unrelated activities are being done at 90 to 110 °F. But is there any truth to this? In episode 26 of the Raw Food Health Podcast I talk about Bikram Yoga Creep and the physiological side of doing exercise in hot environments.

How Mike Vlasaty Got Jacked On Fruits And Veggies.

Mike Vlasaty We know raw foodists excel at endurance sports, but what about about strength training? When Mike Vlasaty went raw, he decided to concentrate on weight lifting and bodyweight exercises to see if he could really get strong and gain a lot of muscle while eating a raw vegan diet. In the Raw Food Health Podcast Episode 25 we talk to Mike about how that experiment worked out, what he eats, if he’s concerned about protein, and many other topics.

How Cinnamon, Peppers, Herbs, And Spices Can Harm You

Think cinnamon, turmeric, peppers, and the dozens of flavor-enhancing foods, spices, and herbs raw foodists sometimes employ are healthy because they’re raw? In episode 23 of the Raw Food Health Podcast we talk about why many “healthy” foods have a downside that creates the drug-like effect doctors, ayurvedic and Chinese medicine practitioners, and naturopaths like to praise. I also interview Phillip Cuccerre, the Business Development Manager for the Carmelita banana brand. I ask him why his company’s bananas seem to taste better than the average cavendish you get in the United States.

Why Vegans Have Weak Bones

The dominant narrative in nutrition is that osteoporosis is mostly created by too much consumption of acidic meat, dairy, and eggs. There’s data to support this idea, such as the excretion of calcium in the urine following animal-protein-rich meals, and the fact that the countries with the highest dairy consumption have the highest risk of hip fractures. But if eating animal foods weakens your bones, why do vegans often experience more bone fractures than omnivores? In episode 22 of the Raw Food Health Podcast we talk about why studies are finding higher fracture rates in vegans, the cause, and what you can do to ensure your bones stay healthy for life. Also in this episode 1) Update on Andrew’s strength training and fasting recovery. 2) The need for physical exercise 3) Do Carmelita bananas really taste better? Show Notes: 1) The three causes of raw food diet insomnia. How To Listen To This Episode And/Or Subscribe To The Podcast: Note: new episodes may take a few hours to show u...

The Truth About Over-Hybridized Fruit

This cultivated Cherimoya is much smaller than its wild cousin, the junglesop, and no more sugary.Is modern fruit too sugary and over bred? After our discussion of genetically modified foods a few episodes back, a lot of people have been asking about something we hear all the time in the raw food world – that today’s fruits are too hybridized, too sugary, too big, and man-bred seedless monstrosities to boot. Is there any valid criticism in this critique, or yet another example of the raw food community blathering on like fools in pseudo science speak? In episode 22 of the Raw Food Health Podcast, we find out, and also discuss using okra in raw food recipes.

The Truth About Over-Hybridized Fruit

Why Our Children Are Getting Dumber And Weaker

ADD, learning disorders, and dozens of other neurological problems have become rampant in children over the last few decades as their bodies have grown fat and failed to develop strength and balance. Why? A perfect storm of brain-altering electronics, lack of outdoor play and exercise, fewer decision-making opportunities, worsening diets, and other lifestyle changes have played a huge role. I episode 21 of the Raw Food Health Podcast we explore some of the interesting data on learning and physical activity. Other topics: 1) Save money, the environment, and improve your skin with better shaving options. 2) How to avoid overeating on fruit.

The Only Three GMO Raw Foods You Need To Worry About, And Natural Shampoos

With more than three quarters of the foods available for purchase at your local supermarket now containing genetically modified organisms, what does a raw foodist have worry about? In episode 20 of the Raw Food Health Podcast I talk about the three fruits and vegetables that are now GMO which a healthy raw foodist would eat. I also discuss how to identify and protect yourself from GMOs. I also discuss my efforts to find a way to escape the oil-stripping, lubricant reapplying paradigm of hair cleaning, the “no poo method,” and the two products I’ve found success with.
