Get Fresh! Magazine

The spring 2011 edition of Get Fresh! magazine is here, and it’s abuzz with ideas and information to help propel you into your healthiest season yet! As spring bursts with new life and hope, so does this edition of Get Fresh! ... beginning with a well-deserved tribute to inspirational health hero Jack Lalanne.

Remember that old Paul Simon Song, Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover? In this spring issue of Get Fresh! Dr. Doug Graham gives us 50—fifty!—reasons to eat raw. A compelling list indeed.

Beautiful on Raw

UnCooked Creations

You springtime detox zealots will find a thought-provoking article by Fiona Robertson on the slippery slope into detox addiction. A sobering reminder that not everything we raw foodists feel drawn to is necessarily wonderful in every instance, and that we can overdo it. Thomas Billings lends his expertise, bringing balance and reminding  readers that, when dealing with health issues, it’s not wise to rely on just diet alone.

Speaking of detox, expert Natalia Rose delivers a profound, life-changing admonition regarding the “price of beauty” and how young women forfeit their health and even their fertility in their toxic efforts to be beautiful, using popular (but damaging) products and methods.

There is also an article from yours truly Go Raw: Invite Miracles into Your Life. This piece was inspired by an incredible story that happened to me recently. There is something more going on in the raw food world than meets the eye, the beautician's mirror, or the weight loss scale. There are, it's certain, more benefits to this lifestyle than science can now quite explain. I invite you to move beyond the realm of science and visit a new thinking paradigm made possible by a healthy, balanced raw food diet and the clarity and open mind this brings!

Adding another spark to the latest  Get Fresh! lineup is Australia's own Casey Lorraine with some tips on transforming your pain into a gift, as she speaks compellingly from personal experience.

Like a breath of fresh air, Elwin Robinson offers some astounding information on the importance of oxygen and shares some great ideas on a subject few of us think about. There are “techniques” for breathing? Did you know? Significant stuff, much worth your exploration.
