Listen in to Raw Inspirations Radio with host Laura Fox and guest Nomi Shannon Wednesday, April 8 at 7 pm pacific time, 10 pm eastern!
I am really looking forward to speaking with Nomi, who recently found me at ExpoWest in Anaheim. We really connected and it was one of those meetings that “finally happened,” as I had been wanting to meet her and interview her on Raw Inspirations for years.
Nomi won Best Raw Educator and more at this year’s Best of Raw competition.

I was introduced to raw food in 1987 ago by a holistic physician. At that time, I had serious digestive problems and felt ill no matter what I ate. For the first time in my life, I was gaining weight and had begun to develop an alphabet of maladies. With my physician’s encouragement, I began to eat about fifty percent of my food raw. Most of us already eat quite a bit of raw food, such as fruit, salads, coleslaw and even smoothies, so I found it quite easy to expand on that theme; I carried around a pocket full of raw almonds for snacks. I began to feel better almost immediately. But it wasn’t until sometime later that I became really serious about eating raw food and went on a three week one hundred percent raw food and juices program, including wheatgrass juice. I lost eleven pounds in 14 days and couldn’t believe how physically and mentally well I felt. It made me realize that the degenerative process was so very subtle and slow that I simply had forgotten how it felt to be healthy. From that moment on, I embraced a 100% raw food program, and over a matter of several weeks said good riddance to fibromyalgia, hypoglycemia, mood swings, allergic sinusitis, digestive disorders, including acid reflux, and in time rid myself of candida (a systemic yeast infection that has multiple symptoms). My physical, emotional and mental energy was so high I had never experienced anything like it. It would be a lie to say that, in my mid-forties, I felt as though I were in my twenties again. I had never felt as good in my twenties.
