I arrived in September 1993 at the Kushi Institute to study macrobiotics and the weather was still very nice and balmy, but living in the Berkshires, it would eventually get very cold with snow that remains for months. One of my favorite teachers there was Lino Stanchich. This man has a “large” presence and the sweetest disposition. He is strong physically and speaks from his heart. He radiates a wonderful balance between the physical and spiritual. I liked him immediately and I developed a wonderful connection with him. Read the rest of this entry »
Testimonial of the Month (March 2012)
Shelly, age 42, wrote us:
Just thought I’d forward my “before” and “after” pix showing the results of doing the chin exercises you’ve shared with us. Thank you, Tonya! I’d been so dismayed about my double chin that I’d begun thinking plastic surgery was the answer.
Testimonial of the Month from Anna Kaminskaya:
Dear Tonya, I’m prompted to respond to the recent comments of yours replying to people who, for one reason or another, have given up their raw food regimen.
Background…I’m from Russia, aged 40, been on a raw foods diet some two and a half years. Early on, I felt quite inspired. I was surprised by the mental clarity and bright spirit raw foods brought me. My hearing improved. I stopped catching colds. I felt proud of these improvements. Read the rest of this entry »
Tonya, you say: “Many people comment on how difficult it can be to follow a raw food lifestyle in a cold climate.”
Now, fortunately, I can say that hasn’t been my experience. My husband and I are originally from Finland—cold climate people from the get-go—so we somehow just naturally know how to deal with such things.
Eating 100% raw in a cold climate is actually not hard at all. But you need to learn a secret. Here’s what I tell people in my raw food group… Read the rest of this entry »
Dear Tonya, 🙂 I saw your testimony on YouTube and it was so heart felt, I saw the amount of effort you had put into strengthening your hips and I had to say, you did an extraordinary job, keep inspiring people, it led me to look for you on facebook, it’s truly inspiring! 🙂 –A.Z.
Hello, I want to start off by thanking you for changing my life, health, and happiness. I have been predominately raw for over 7 years now after reading your first book, and I have to tell you that I wake up everyday feeling fantastic. I am in my LATE 20’s and just yesterday a neighbor guessed my age at 14! From my example alone, I have influenced countless friends and family, and I believe the circle will just keep widening.

Hello Tonya, I just wanted to say I love the new face cream; I also loved the old one which seemed a bit lighter. I like the new one better and like the fact it has more sea buckthorn oil in it. Maybe offer both formulas, one day and one night cream. They both smell wonderful. I have really oily skin and both work well for me. I am also 50 years old and the new formula seems to be doing the trick for around the eyes. I am also about 80% raw food. –D. Read the rest of this entry »

Hello Tonya, I met you quite a while ago – at a talk you were giving for RawBC in Vancouver. I was so moved by your life and actions and am very much understanding your path. I was having health issues as well and turned to raw food – am now a Raw Food Chef and very healthy, happy and vibrant…Thank you for sharing your gifts with us, –M. Read the rest of this entry »
Hi Tonya, I recently contacted you for some information via email and bought Quantum Eating and some cosmetics from you. I am totally in admiration of what you do and actually began to follow your Quantum Eating and face exercises!!!! Feeling great and becoming more beautiful every day. Because of this I could inspire some friends who also became very interested in the truth you are teaching. I actually learned about you from Jinjie and Storm who are my other inspiration. Many blessings, –N. Read the rest of this entry »
Hi Tonya, Just a quick note to say that I’ve been using the face exercises, exactly as you said to, and today is the 4th day, and I’m 46 1/2 years old. I cannot believe it, but frown lines that I had developed between my eyebrows in the last year and half are literally GONE!
Also, my nose is lifted and my eyes are open more. In only FOUR DAYS! Also, what you say about not eating the evening meal is so right on. I’m a holistic healthcare professional and medical intuitive and tell my clients all the time if they would just eat little or nothing for dinner, and get to sleep by 10pm, that would eliminate most health problems.
