Raw Food Testimonials (January 2010)
Happy Birthday Tonya!!!
You've been quite the inspiration!!! Florida was awesome. I was able to do 18 visits to Bikram and wow! What a change in my body!!!! We're also doing well with our teeth! Your book is VERY helpful!!! -S.
I have to start out by saying I LOVE you hair tonic as well as the shampoo and conditioner. My hair has never felt or looked as lovely. Thank you for creating them. I am just finishing up reading your book on raw food and hot yoga and am enjoying it so much I ordered the 3 pack of books you offer. -Lynn
I first met you about 3 years ago at one of the lectures you gave at Hallelujah Acres in Charlotte, NC. I was very impressed by you and absolutely loved what you had to say. I have been involved in the raw food movement for several years, have included green smoothies into my daily routine and as a result feel so much better. -C.
Just printed out your The Raw Food Diet and Your Compromised Teeth e-book. I was in my second reading and study of Quantum Eating. This new book is definitely top priority. My Leah, 7, is having grave problems with her teeth, and I feel like the timing of your books is answered prayer. I have people tell me, "In my house it's always, 'Suzy says,' well in my house, it's "Tonya says." Thank you for sharing. With the age of my girls, homeschooling, etc. I don't have the time for the extensive study and research that you've done. I can't tell you how appreciative I am to have your consolidated resources. What an immense blessing! -S.
I tried to donate blood a few years ago having just come off of a juice fast. They said my iron was "borderline" at one point lower than the "norm" (sorry I don't remember what that number is) and they wanted me to take supplements. I couldn't understand how my iron level could be unhealthy when I felt so terrific and full of energy! I used black strap molasses to get it up to the level that made them happy, just so that I could donate blood. But I am glad you are bringing this up. It shows one more way in which western medicine is way off track. -Maggie
Tonya, I just finished reading "Raw Food & Hot Yoga" today. This book and "Quantum Eating" I have found SO inspirational. In fact, I have never been so tremendously inspired over this way of eating since the time I first heard George Malkmus talk about it in August, 1996. You are a truly great motivator and inspiration...
My husband and I just got back from a 19-day Panama Canal cruise. At one of the islands a photographer took a picture of us while on a boat. I normally would not pay $10 for 2 pictures when I have my digital, but I am excited to say that I look so much better and younger than my age. (maybe his camera?) I look like I have those "apple" cheeks (Thank you, Tonya and Rawsome Flex and my far infared sauna), and the skin is glowing. I think I will frame one of the pictures. :) I wish I could send a copy to you. Also want you to know I plan to memorize your daily "mantra".
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. -Linda
The newsletter is so helpful this month. Thank you for your work on it.... I could not get along without your wisdom these 5 years since I found your scholarship and wisdom. BTW, I am returning to Bikram yoga very soon, having not been able to afford gas to get there (35 miles one-way, daily...). Thank you for all you do and share with all of us out here. -H.T.
