Today’s Episode is with Dr. Tumi Johnson MD who is a traditionally trained medical doctor that now used food as medicine with her patients.  She tells her story, which is interesting in itself, but also answers so many of your questions about raw food, fruits or a plant based vegan diet.  No matter where you are on your journey of health this episode with help you learn so much & motivate you to add more raw foods & fruits to your life.  Dr. Tumi is well known in the raw food & fruitarian world so don’t miss out listening to what she has to teach us all.

I asked her many questions… for example: Are cooked vegan diets as healing as raw food?  How much raw food should be in our diets?  Is fruit dangerous for type 2 diabetics?  Is fruit better than fruit juice? When should I juice vs. when should I use smoothies?  I think many of you have these questions & more & will find this episode very informative & helpful.

Dr. Tumi is a genuine & compassionate human being & this comes thru in my interview with her.  She genuinely cares about helping people learn the truth about how they can heal themselves, but also counsels them medically which is what makes her so special.  She is also a professional dancer & if you have not yet seen her videos on youtube it is a must to watch her dance.  Wow.

If you are interested in knowing all the components of a healthy lifestyle she helps her clients with then you should buy her book called Delicious Healing.  (Link below)
