How I Got Healthy and Feeling Younger
I grew up learning somewhat about natural health from my Mom & Dad. When I moved out on my own, I bought only the healthiest foods I knew - fresh foods such as fruits, vegetables, etc. with nothing in boxes, cans or frozen. What I thought was good health greatly improved and I began studying natural health in depth at the age of 18, changing over to an 80% Live Foods Diet and sharing my knowledge and experiences with others willing to change their eating to regain their health. Upon moving to Florida in 1989, I began experiencing an unusual amount of health problems and such severe Candida as a result I nearly died several times in the first year. After careful studying and several months previous finding a doctor that was open to natural remedies, we isolated a test to find the cause - it turned out I had been being poisoned with Arsenic for 11 months! Herbal Clean® Master Tea 2 hour cleanse is what I used to eliminate the poison from my body and the long road to healing began. Years later, for a season, I had returned to a mostly processed food diet. Although most of us know things such as sugar, white flour, caffeine and chemical additives are drugs and effect the body in adverse ways, the mostly processed food diet was doing the same thing! And all these so-called foods had the SAME EFFECT ON MY BODY AS THE ARSENIC, BUT AT A SLOWER RATE!!! That is why at Alive & Well we promote a 100% Live Food Program with as much organic as possible. As a result of prayer, eating all live food, exercise, friendly bacteria, bee products, Chinese herbs, use of essential oils and massage I have been healed of many of the ailments I had following the arsenic poisoning. ALL were SEVERE level health problems, many occurring at the SAME time. They are as follows: uterine cancer, severely blocked sinuses, wearing glasses did not help my eyes anymore, multiple ear problems including tinnitus, fatigue, almost constant chronic nausea, allergies (allergic to almost anything I ate and anyplace I went including my home), sensitive teeth, cystitis, headaches (never had them before in my life!), peculiar body rashes, obesity, extreme hair loss, excessive body odor, wrinkles, no strength (lived 1/2 my life in bed), congestion, candida, irregular body temperatures, poor memory, acne, anemia, periodic inability to walk because of arthritis in my knees & back, daily chiropractic treatments, bladder trouble, anger and irritability, ears ringing, hypoglycemia, menstrual cramps, decay of bones and teeth, indigestion, dizziness, toxemia, after eating tiredness, slow body healing, sore nipples from breast-feeding, breast cancer, jaundice, dental plaque, taking excessive vitamins, morning sickness and other unnecessary pregnancy problems, arthritis, pinched nerves, bleeding gums, varicose veins, irregular heartbeat, water retention, athlete's feet, toe and fingernail fungus, colitis and other chronic colon problem. A lot of this was all at the ripe old age of 30. Most of these health problems have left me and the rest continue to reverse more and more as a result of changing what I eat. At 30 I felt like I knew what is was like to be 90 and now I feel like I am in my late 20's again. Just imagine what can happen to someone who has not been poisoned
I would like to point out that miraculously during the time I experienced all the health problems and long recovery time I never became depressed. (I also had a rude awakening to formaldehyde toxicity in 1999 and experienced many of the same things I did with arsenic poisoning.) I knew my Hope was and still is in Yahweh, Yeshuah and the Ruach HaKodesh and the Joy of the Lord is my strength. With joy there was no room for depression. I wasn't happy about what I was going through, but I knew that all things work together for good to those who love Yahweh and are called according to His purpose and I figured if Yeshuah was willing to die for me to spend eternity with Him in heaven, surely He would help me get through this and learn a bunch as I go.
I have seen or heard of friends, family and others eliminate gray hair, fungus, colic, menopausal symptoms, insanity and suicidal tendencies, all childhood diseases, diaper rash, nightmares, nervousness, sciatica, sexual diseases, AIDS, cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, emphysema, leukemia, cancerous tumors and ulcers just to name a few.
I bet there are a lot of people that would love to see photos of me when I had all these health problems. Well sorry to disappoint you, but I did not want anyone to see what I looked like when I had all these problems, so I had none taken! I do not want to take away from anyone's credibility, but I for one cannot see how other people were so eager to have their picture taken sometimes years in advance, to post on the internet now to sell a "cure all" supplement that costs way more than should be spent on good health (drugs included). I do not promote any cure all supplements. I merely would like people to learn to improve the quality of their food and eliminate the junk food that causes all the diseases. It may not happen overnight like some of these supplements claim to work, but you will have a lasting result. And I don't have to have a money back guarantee because I am not selling you a supplement. just sharing a different way of eating from what a majority of us have been taught!
Through another major attack from the enemy, between 2009 and 2013 I had some setbacks that led to a lot of weight gain that I never before experienced, and can now help others who are in that boat only if they want the help. With Yahweh's strength and guidance I am pulling through and am here to share some progress.
Our mission is to share what we have been blessed with (Yahweh's Love, our experiences, knowledge and products) so others may be blessed as well.
Difference Between Live Food and Dead Food
There are two kinds of foods - Live Foods and Dead Foods. Dead Foods are obtained by using inferior ingredients, over cooking and over processing. Eating too much dead food weakens the immune system allowing sickness to develop in an otherwise healthy body. When Live Foods are eaten this doesn't happen. Raw food is not necessarily Live - if grains, beans and seeds are Live, they are sproutable. Sprouted grains are made into bread in slow baked ovens with no yeast or in dehydrators. Grains also sprout some when slow cooked, take a look at them before you eat. We have had many foods tested that were steamed or baked without being overdone and as long as they were not over processed or bad ingredients added, the life force was stronger afterward than when raw. (Please do not confuse Alive & Well with Raw Foodists who promoted to us excessive colon cleansing and detoxing to the point of severe weakness, the over consumption of bottled oils, nuts, seeds and fruits, poor food combining along with eliminating drinking valuable herb teas. Eating this way leads to overheating the liver and draining the kidneys. Although the initial feeling may be good, in the long run it leads to severe imbalances in the body)

Some Benefits of Eating Organic Live Foods
Our body's insides become healthier as if we were still younger and it shows not only in our physical appearance but the way we feel as well -- increased energy and endurance, stronger immune system guarding against sickness and diseases as well as overall feeling better physically, mentally and spiritually. Also by purchasing organic foods in bulk and through the mail, preferably once a month or less often, we cut down on our financial expenses, save shopping time and can spend more quality time with our family or whatever our heart desires. We noticed but were amazed to see some neighbor children notice the difference . . . they have a baby sister 1 month younger than our daughter. Asher was born at home without western medical intervention and has been breast fed from the beginning and started on solid foods after 1 year of age that consist of only Live Foods. Their baby sister was born in a hospital and raised on soy formula and fed the typical commercial baby foods too soon and only eats Dead Food. The children were all playing together one day when Asher was 21-1/2 months of age and the young boys went to pick up Asher to put her in the stroller and they noticed immediately how soft her skin is as opposed to their sister's whose felt like a rubber doll! The boys went back and forth several times rubbing each of the girls' arms to compare.
People have asked us how much does it cost a person to be on a totally Live Food Diet. All we can answer is this: If a person still has to purchase produce from farmers and/or supermarkets instead of growing their own, in addition to all the main foods that are grown indoors that Alive & Well supplies the seeds and other necessities for, it averages $70-$75 a week. We also count this amount as our medical insurance and cost for doctors & prescriptions because we do not have those expenses like the majority of people do. The last time I was sick (other than the diagnosis of arsenic poisoning in 1989) was in the 6th grade when I had the flu. And I have not had medical insurance since 1980 nor have I needed it!
