From Bali to Bangkok and down to Perth…by the time I landed in Australia, I was sleep-deprived and exhausted yet so excited for the next stage of my holiday! I went down to Australia to specifically take part in a 4-day seminar hosted by Fred Bisci all about ‘Your Healthy Journey.’ Fred is an American from New York and has been a 100% raw food vegan for over 45 years!!! That alone make him worth meeting, don’t you reckon! I mean, really guys, a lot of people are talking about raw food and health and blah blah blah, but how many people do you meet that have made the commitment to it for that long?? I was inspired just from that alone.
Raw Food Living
The things that I really took away from Fred’s ideas about Raw Food living were simple but often forgotten or overlooked – mainly to eat LESS food at every meal, not to eat LATE at night and to eat very SIMPLY with your choices of raw foods. Honestly I can admit that even though I am eating natural, whole and pure raw foods, I often do eat too much in one meal and I definitely am guilty of eating late at night. Many times I am so busy working from 8am straight through to 8pm and so I will sit down at 9pm with a huge salad to make up for lack of food during the day. In my mind I was thinking, well it is a salad so who cares when I eat it…but really after hearing Fred speak about how that food will ferment in your bowel overnight but more importantly, how it will make you feel more tired the next day. And for me that is so true!! I thought I was tired from working too much but I can see now that I have been adding to that by eating too late in the evenings. So one of my biggest insights for myself is to eat less at each meal and also to try not to eat past 7pm at the latest.
The thing I also like about Fred was his strong connection to his Divine Source and his spiritual commitment to his journey. To me this is the most important part of it all. I see so many people get caught up in the what to eat and what not to eat about what about protein or do you eat oils or are you really 100% and at the end of the day, that is not what it’s all about!!!! If you are tapped into your true authentic self, if you can live fully in the present moment, if you listen to your own body and if you learn to love and let go then you would not need to fill your head with all this other useless information!!! Fred is totally genuine and has no ego about what he does whatsoever. He accepts people for wherever they are at and does not push 100% raw on anyone. He makes recommendations based on where he thinks you can succeed first and then helps you from there. And he is not afraid to talk about his strong relationship with his Source, but at the same time he is not pushing it on anyone. Much respect to you Fred for that 🙂
– – interject with a Samui moment, as I am sitting here in my bungalow writing this, I just got word that my coconut man is back in business after being out of commission with a foot injury for a few weeks, so finally I am having my 5 coconut/day delivery again – direct to my door from the tree to me, for a mere 50 cents per coconut, wow is that some Divine intervention or what – hehehe!!! – –
Back to Fred, anyway all I can say is his book ‘Your Healthy Journey’ is well worth the investment, just to hear what someone doing this for as many years as him has to say. The things that he suggests are very much in line with what I teach in terms of eliminating processed foods from the diet, remove any excess chemicals from the diet or lifestyle and tap into the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
I decided to buy some of Fred’s Systemic Enzymes since I had some extra cash from selling my sprout bags at the seminar 🙂 and what a great find that was for me!! I have only been taking these enzymes for about 10 days and already I feel so much improvement, physically, emotionally and energetically! I have taken a LOT of different supplements in my time, and I can honestly say this is the first one I have ever taken where I can actually FEEL a difference. Then, as a side benefit, I noticed the other day that this pesky wart I have had on my thumb for about 4 years now is completely gone!!! I have tried everything to get rid of that thing – garlic, clove oil, colloidal silver, etc etc and then spent about $500 on different laser treatments and whatever, and every single time the bastard grew back. Now after taking these enzymes, it is GONE! I am not kidding guys, the wart is completely GONE. Did some research to check it out and saw that yes, many others had experienced the same thing. So for this new addition to my routine, I am very grateful Fred – I’ll be on these systemic enzymes for awhile now I’m sure!!
I’ve got stacks of clips from Fred’s time in Perth on youtube which I will put up in the next few days, if you can’t wait then check them out on my new channel at findyourhealthybliss.
