Jjay – I purposely didn’t give any additional diet information because (in my mind) if someone is interested, they will take whatever information is given and run with it (i.e.) they will do their own research when the time is right for them.
In other words, for an oak tree to grow, you need to plant the seed first!
From my own past experience, there is nothing worse than to “feel” you are being lectured to.
There is no way on earth, that I could explain the concepts and research contained within one book in a couple of paragraphs, so I didn’t bother trying.
If you are interested in finding out more, please buy the book or borrow the book from your local library – at least that way you will get the correct and full information from the proper source, instead of hearing it second hand from me.
Judilyn – David Klein is indeed a proponent of the raw food diet. I can’t comment on his breast feeding views, as I have never heard or read about them.
Personally, I was not inclined to be raw vegan to start with either, but when it comes down to it, I now have NO choice in the matter.
My two very favourite food items in the entire universe were chicken and cheese.
Unfortunately, when I was diagnosed with UC, I was also diagnosed as lactose intolerant.
David Klein says in his book ..........and I QUOTE:
"it is apparent to the author that meat (any animal flesh) is the single most causative dietary factor with C&C. The author has never seen or heard of a case of complete and lasting healing of C&C where the person continued to eat meat”.
I actually heard about David Klein and his diet over five years ago but at that time I was also a non-believer in the raw vegan approach, so I pretty much ignored his valuable advice.
When I was first sick / diagnosed, I pretty much ate what I wanted, when I wanted. However, because of that idiotic decision on my part, until recently I have been suffering because of it. My God, how I wish I had followed his advice, when I first heard about it.
You seriously don’t have to “inclined to be a vegan to start with” to follow his advice (although it may help with the transition) but to anyone who has done the rounds and is looking for an alternative to drugs and surgery or to anyone who is “at the end of their tether”, his advice will help you immensely.
Anyway as I said, I use to be narrow-minded to his views, but now I know different from personal experience.
So all I can do (going on my past views, feelings and experiences) is plant the seed with others.
Please read the book whether you buy, borrow, beg or steal it - (yes, that last suggestion was a joke - so please don't sue me if you get caught!)
