I am very inspired by your books and hope to make the full transition to raw food this year. I especially appreciate your advice for professionals working in the office environment that is not truly supportive of the raw lifestyle. -A.

Hello Mrs. Zavasta, I firstly have to tell you how much you have inspired me! I have been a part-time vegan for many years but always felt I was lacking something. It wasn’t until I came across the raw lifestyle that I’ve been feeling better. I read many books on the subject but yours is by far the most logical. I also have your facial exercise book.
This I have to say: I used exercises from 3 other books, over a course of 1 year and they made me look older! My under eye area was more hollow because my nose bridge became thicker! It also affected my nasiolabial lines to look more prominent because my upper lip stayed thin. I knew by your face that your exercises were different. Your face is soft and girly. I don’t know if you’ve noticed many other programs, some of the girls look a little rigid like body builders.
I have seen your books on the internet for many years. I thought you were some chick (yes some 30 year old girl) pushing me to eat my veggies. I already ate my veggies! It wasn’t until I saw you on YouTube that I realized you look like you are doing something magical for your age!
Now I’m hooked (and kick myself for ignoring you for years. But I’m grateful I’ve only looked older than I want for 7 years, since I was 30.) -PV

I just have to tell you — this is Day 3 of the exercises for me — actually, I missed Saturday and Sunday because we had to be gone — but I feel it so much! I think that is a good sign. My face feels so ‘alive’ and good. It feels like I had a wonderful facial…or better. Can’t wait to see how it is after 21 days! -S.S.

Dear Tonya, I just wanted to say that I really appreciated your blog post about radiation. I live in Japan, and have no doubt that I’ve had a fair amount of exposure to the radiation already. Seaweed is now one of my favorite foods.
I just went raw 3 months ago, and am so excited about the amazing changes I have seen already, and the changes that I hear will be coming as I am in the middle of reading “Your Right to be Beautiful”!
Up until 3 months ago I ate tons of meat and dairy because I am hypoglycemic, and everyone told me lots of protein was the way to go. I HAD to eat every 3 hours, even if I wasn’t hungry (and I usually wasn’t), or I would become very weak and collapse. Thinking and talking seemed impossible feats during these spells. But since going raw, these symptoms and more have disappeared completely!!! I actually have the luxury of getting hungry before I eat, like a normal person again! Since so many of my friends, family, and teachers have seen such a difference in me, that a number of them have gone Rawsome too!
I want to especially thank you for your testimony of how you came to the Lord in your book! Powerful! I live in Japan because I am a missionary here, and I am finding, as you did, that this Rawsome diet is yet just another way to praise God and point people to Him! Praise the Lord! –K.F.

I found your website through The Raw Food World and have been enjoying your newsletter and the wealth of information on your site. I began facial brushing a few months ago on your recommendation and now I can’t imagine a day without it. –K.K.

Tonya, I just wanted to give you a “thumbs up” on the new packaging (jar) for the masque. It’s lighter weight, screws on easier, seems less likely to break if dropped. Additionally the protective overlay inside preserves product freshness. Hope you are well. –W.E.

I love your Hair Care Products. I use both your Shampoo and Conditioners and they are my staple products. And I love your Scalp Tonic. I can’t tell what wonders it has done for my temples and nape area. It has regrown new cells there so I thank you. And I am happy to be the first to try your new formulation. I remember 2 years ago when the Scalp Tonic was new how I got a free sample to try the product. Well I haven’t stop buying it ever since. As an African American, I’m definitely pleased and satisfied with your products. I wish you also have a Leave-in and deep conditioner as products. Keep up the good work and hard research. –L.

This is my second order of your wonderful Shampoo and Conditioner and Hair Tonic. I don’t know if my hair has stopped falling out, but I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels… soft and managable. Thank you so much…

Hi! Thank you for all your hard work with the books and your website, it changed my life forever and I am eternally grateful. I wanted to ask you approximately how much (ounces) of juice do you drink in the morning with the handful of soaked nuts? It doesn’t have to be exact as when I juice it usually doesn’t come out the same each time either. Thank you for your time! –P.A.
