I had struggled for a good few years with hypertension (high blood pressure) and the medical advice I had been given was to take medication to control it. Years earlier, I had even travelled to India in search of an auryvedic solution. After just one consultation with the auryvedic doctor, he had my contributing factors down pat! In the first instance I was prescribed a shrodara treatment, the most relaxing, calming treatment I have ever experienced, and it worked! My bp (blood pressure) reading became normal and I felt cured. However I couldn’t just up and go live in South India.
I had not heard about raw food at that point, and I thought that I was a healthy eater already, with little sugar or refined food and meat etc. in my diet. I decided that I would commit to travel across London, once a week, for 8 weeks to find out more about raw lifestyles. I remember now how astonished I was to learn that certain cultural foods could be eaten raw, so with more than a hint of skepticism at first, I tried the weekly dishes and listened to Derin Bepos (our teacher) engaging and life changing lectures, as I discovered a completely new approach to health and wellbeing.
As I started to consciously incorporate more raw vegetables and green smoothies into my diet, I found an incredible improvement in my energy levels and found that I felt even calmer. From that point onwards, I set about deepening my raw food education by attending numerous classes and courses and reading and researching.
After a year of transitioning, I started to slip back into more cooked food and quickly developed a physical reaction in my body, and return of many symptoms
I then took another step and had an in depth consultation and EIS scan with Derin and discovered that I had an inflamed colon. I didn’t go to my GP because I knew I would receive medication treatment for the symptoms and that healing would be bypassed. I was in so much pain that I started missing days off work and couldn’t sleep at night. Derin gave me a specific programme including juice fast with powerful detox herbs such as the Bowel Blaster. This felt daunting, but I felt so ill that I was desperate for relief and healing.
Luckily I was surrounded by support to maintain daily juicing 24/7, with no food of any kind. Within a few days, the awful pain had disappear and a week later my energy levels soared again. My blood pressure was well within the normal range I experienced an incredible sense of relief and happiness.
I Re-connected to my raw food journey at a deepened level, I had experienced the healing power of green juicing.
Later in the year, when I was back on track with raw food and I felt stronger, I undertook the HealthRestore programme for the first time! The programme is a 3 month cleanse and detox process, designed to remove debris and toxins from the systems of the body, by using the HealthRestore Programme This is a challenging process for those that are unaccustomed with deep cleansing. But it works
Three months later, I looked and felt amazing – my skin was glowing, my eyes were brighter, my brain fog had disappeared and I was two stone lighter (going from dress size 14, to size 10) in weight. I felt healthy and vital and my spiritual practice seemed to deepen into more stability.
Over the years, Derin has been an inspirational teacher and trusted health consultant. Through his guidance I now know what my body loves and I have maintained control over my BP, healed digestive and energy issues. As I get older, maintaining energy levels and physical activity is crucial for my work. I have felt the benefits of cleansing and a raw plant food lifestyle first hand and have been deeply inspired to train as a raw food teacher and to create Raw Soul Food.
I decided I wanted to tap into the seemingly endless well of health knowledge possessed by Derin, It was not easy he is very busy! Eventually we got together once a week for 12 weeks of interviews, questions, conversations about Derin’s favorite topic Raw Food and Peak Health.
The result is the extensive audio series Conversations in Raw a fascinating set of dialogues and insights into the mind and experience of a man who has conducted over 20 thousand health consultations, eaten no cooked foods for the last 15 years and has been a major source of influence healing and inspiration to myself and very many others. They say questions are powerful, well I asked Derin a lot of questions!
