Hello Ms. Zavasta, just today came across your website while browsing the internet and was amazed by the content of your web world and the most unbelievable part: i was surprised beyond words when i saw you ( knowing you are in your mid 50′s )!
I am dry brushing my face, neck and decollate daily (and my body, too, less often). I absolutely love it - it feels good (and continues to feel better now that my skin has gotten used it), and it seems that I am already seeing results (smaller pores on cheeks and possibly even tightening - already!? – on my neck which last year really started to show extreme aging (a sudden onset – interesting and very off-putting). Clearly collagen and elastin dissolution, free radical damage and whatever else has all taken its toll. Anyway, I feel unusually confident that I can reverse and heal these various aging effects.
My sister and I met you in the Cayman Islands when you came here for a seminar. You were stunning then, but I actually think you look even more beautiful and youthful now. Know one could tell that you aged at all. Now that’s saying a lot for the diet.
Tonya, I ordered your ebook on face exercises when it first came out…About a year ago or more I decided I was going to do them more consistently and…I now do them about 5x a week. I had printed out your ebook and … keep it near my bathroom. Every day I do the face exercises, I also read a page of the book. So I have now read the ebook through many times. I think doing this has kept me consistent and motivates me. I do see a difference in my facial muscles and they have been quite helpful in helping in the war against facial muscle atrophy and gravity. I am 66 years old and when I recently told my age to a lady, she looked surprised and said it must be my raw diet (I am not 100% raw). And I thought to myself “and facial exercises.” Thank you so much for your inspiring books and website and emails.
Thank you for your special offers and the July 4, special. I have all your books and almost all of your devices. Thank you for inspiring and informing. I control my arthritis with the raw food diet and people constantly ask me what my secret for looking so young is. I tell them about you and your books.
Thanks Tonya [for the newsletter What I am up to at 54]. I’m 59 but most people don’t even come near guessing my age. Looking for a ballet class to sign up for as I type.
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.
Dear Mrs. Zavasta, I am doing well since I embarked in the Rawsome lifestyle. I just ordered the last two books (Quantum eating and Raw food and Hot Yoga). Your writing style is phenomenal and I enjoy and appreciate your talented, scientific mind. Love it. Even though I live in the Northeast with frigid temperature I did not relinquish my raw vegan eating. Reading your posts in the blog help me implement measures to minimize the decrease in body temperature.
Thanks so much: I do have my right to be beautiful. Even my facial bones are changing for the better. At 45 prior to the rawsome lifestyle my facial skin and nose was sagging and my hair was turning gray. No need to enumerate all the positive changes that are occurring. I am just blessed and thank JEHOVAH GOD for your genius and your humility.
Tonya, you are an excellent example of good health, keep up the good work! I thank the Lord for the health message and teachers like you! I was healed of 2nd stage breast cancer in 1984, NO CHEMO, NO RADIATION, NO SURGERY (ALL CANCELLED) through the vegan lifestyle. Ten years later introduced to 80/20 raw, in mid 90?s 85/15 and I saw you in Florida lecture around 2007 or ‘08. Like you, I look many years younger than my age group and haven’t needed a medical doctor since 1984!!!
I will always continue to live the healthy diet and lifestyle, not just for the outer appearance, but the awesome blessings of my healthy internal body. I am a very active senior and happy that I am disease free, enjoying my later years like all of us should and are meant to do!… I know Jack LaLane’s niece here in Hawaii and she looks and does great for her senior age! I will suggest your newsletter to her! Thank you very much for all the time and effort you put into the health message! Aloha.
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.
