He informed me immediately that the results werepositive (as always). He recommended, as he always did, to try to prevent fromgetting burned by the sun, which will help make getting melanoma less likely.He additionally repeated that even though melanoma is the most fatal cancer,it is also the most curable, when caught soon enough, so make sure to not missany visits.Always being aware that food plays a part in health, as well as knowing thatthis particular doctor was "health conscious" as he was a vegan and arrived towork on a bike often, on this specific visit I thought to bring up food. Although Isort of ate "whatever" at the time, I wanted to know "isnt what we eat a hugefactor in our health as well as our ability to fight disease?". His reply was alongthe lines of "you dont eat processed foods and you consume plenty of greens,so what else can you do".I think that was his way of suggesting a whole foods diet. As I dove head firstinto educating myself regarding nutrition, whole foods, the completelydifferent diets, it eventually brought me to the idea of vegetarianism, as wellas veganism. I figured that those diets equated to health but thats notnecessarily the case, so I moved along with my exploration to discover how tobe the most healthy.When I found out about raw food, I figured that was it. I figured eating a raw,organic, vegan diet was the perfect way to eat. Im not so convinced anymorethat the "typical" raw food diet is "it" after digging a little deeper. I listened toa lot of interviews with Daniel Vitalis in relation to "wild foods", and it reallymade a lot of sense. He discusses how wild foods are "more powerful" and thatthese plants might tap their root through several layers of cement just to stayalive. Plus, they generally have medicinal characteristics that can help to"tonify" our organs.Simple Way To Get Wild Foods In The Diet Copyright © 2011
  5. 5. He has said that a lot of what we eat, or a lot of what raw food eaters as wellas vegans eat is what he calls domesticated foods, foods that were modifiedover the decades to become new variations of old foods. I believe he said thatthe domesticated banana, being totally different from its wild brethren, islikened to the difference between a chihuahua and a wolf (a wild dog).With that said, how do we start "going wild"? Its not always simple for peopleto walk through the forest, find wild health food and prepare teas, tinctures,salads, etc, but there is something that we could do. "Bitters" are available infood stores, and these might be the nearest to "wild" foods that are available"domestically".Some of the typical "bitter" greens that I personally include in my food regimeare: dandelion greens, arugula, collard greens, watercress and endive. Spinachand kale may qualify as bitters nevertheless were already getting those intoour smoothies arent we? :)Prepared for much more raw food talk?
