Dear Tonya, thank you for this newsletter. The articles are as ever interesting, the recipes beautiful and the Mathilda Klein video is so inspiring that I have determined to follow her example! I have a few years to catch up, stop being so self indulgent and lazy and follow your excellent example. Blessings to you.
I have always been into health and studied Nutrition at the University…. However, after what I know now, I realize the Nutrition Degree being offered is so far off from what nutrition is really about. I went on to become a Homeopath, and a Bach Flower Practitioner which fits me perfectly. I do enjoy anything about beauty, and health, always have. I love reading your e-zines because this is really what health is. I must order your first book.
I do not know one other person that eats this way, so I am all alone. But, perhaps over time people will change as they see how healthy I look at 54. I decided when looking in the mirror that all my good looks were diminishing when I turned 50ish and I was unhappy about that. However, when I would eat raw, and stay away from sugar, my face would get better. You are raw living proof that no one needs to age. Love you and love all that you share.
Hi Kelli and Tonya, just wanted to say I absolutely love the new look and how pretty the website and newsletter look! I enjoyed the the old look also and found nothing wrong with it, but the new is so refreshing too. Thank you very much for all of it, and it is the most important email newsletter I get every month that I look so forward to and can’t wait to read each time. Thank you!! Take care.
Tonya, your recent newsletter really hit home. I had been raw for over a couple months and was not seeing much change. I started a juice cleanse about 11 days ago and implemented some colonics. I has been amazing-the difference. My skin is better on my body, the acne on my face is clearing up, my nails are growing faster and they are becoming a very beautiful pinkish-white color, and my eyes are clearer and brighter. I am going to continue my cleanse for 30 days before resuming my raw food diet. I just thought you might like to know that your words are tried and true by me and I feel and look much healthier after only 11 days!
Dear Tonya (and research assistant Kelli), this is an email responding to your March 2012 newsletter. Mostly the “What you need to learn from people you disagree with” section. I think it’s interesting that you say that a “raw food lifestyle makes you deeply aware that you get what you send out”. I have been trying to eat as much raw foods as I can, and the more I do the more I’m aware of my own actions. I still feel the need to every once and a while indulge in the warmth of a cooked meal with meat especially when it’s cold and blustery out lol . That being said I really appreciate hearing that words only carry a hurtful meaning if you yourself allow them to. I’ve been experiencing a lot of negativity lately from outside sources and instead of being hurt, I’ve turned them into learning tools. To hear someone else confirm my recent discoveries is uplifting. I don’t know if I will ever be able to completely shut out meat and cooked foods but cutting out nighttime meals and eating mostly raw is certainly do-able for me! Thank you for your kind spirit and informative ideas. I will continue to put out only what I want to receive in return!
Miss Tonya Zavasta. Thank you thank you thank you… For all that you do. Out of 6 or so “raw newsletters” I receive monthly: you are my favorite. I hope you don’t mind that I use your “real talk” as inspiration for my next newsletter…Aloha nui Loa.
Dear Tonya, I just want to say how grateful I am for your monthly letter packed with excellent info, discussion, suggestion, recipes, etc…Thank you, especially, for your passion and integrity in this business of health and beauty. I have been looking forward to read your monthly newsletter, as well as have been using your products including books and equipment for 2 years now—I really appreciate your doing everything to share the best from your knowledge (via well done research) and sell the best products (without compromising for profit gaining). I am motivated to put into practice when I have good knowledge (my whys are answered, etc…) and I am not too burdened with complicated procedures or recipes. THANK YOU for a variety of rawsome recipes, especially the simple yet tasty ones so I can stay flexible with my schedule.
I have the book Rawsome Flex; and wondering if you could exchange it for the book Raw Food and Your Compromised Teeth instead on this purchase? I love your products and have given the creams and brushes to my sisters for their birthdays as well. I am 65 years young and in my second year of eating all raw food and needed to be refreshed again with your newsletter. Thank you for your books, etc. I appreciate your dedication to helping us who don’t know very much about being young on raw. Thank you.
Greetings Tonya, I look forward to every newsletter you send out and wanted to say that this one is of particular note. Thank you for the good information on Botox. I really enjoyed it. Raw wishes.
