Hi there,

My name is Toby and I am new to the raw food list. I am a female 43 years old married with two children, boys 18 and 15.

I am a Massage Therapist practicing for 15 years. I do Shiatsu, Reflexology, Swedish, Sports, Palm Healing, and some other varied forms of healing. I am a devoted animal lover, I have 8 animals sharing their house with me, 3 dogs, 3 cats, 2 parrots. I have been a vegetarian for about 18 years.

I began having very noticible problems with my health about 7 years ago when I started to follow a macrobiotic diet. It took me 2 years to finally stop that. I went to many nutritionists that told me that I was detoxifying. The more symptoms I developed the more they claimed I was detoxing. Well I finally left macrobiotics and slowly my health began to return. I still have some problems now, but I was really sick then.

I started to eat raw foods about 6 months ago and I am still struggling with it, but I am doing better then before. I am off of sugar which is a true miracle. I need to stop eating bread and pasta and I will be very happy. I have found that instinctive eating is definitely the way to go. I have felt much better eating that way then any other way that I have tried.

Well I would just like to say that I am looking forward to being here and learning. There is alot more about me so if any of you would like to ask me questions please ask away.

Thanks toby :)
