Nick should be off to first grade !!!


Today is a great day ! Our son Nick is affected by Autism Syndrome (he's toxic with poor digestion). He could barely talk when we entered him in school this spring.

He has been 90+% raw this past year... and was moved from the special ed class to regular Kindergarten.. he is reading, counting.. and his speech continues to improve.

Progress has been slow.. but steady... we received word from the teacher today.. he will be moving to first grade !!!

Folks ...a raw low fat vegan diet works ! We are now a very high raw vegan family... (every now and again we have steamed vegs)...our diet consists almost entirely of fruits... and tender leafy greens (lettuce, baby spinach, mixed greens, and celery).

My kids are healing, my wife is losing weight, and I am on the mend....

Remember - true health is earned. You must have fresh air, pure water, sunshine, exercise and proper diet to succeed.... (patience does not hurt either).

We are truly blessed to have found this lifestyle... and be influenced by a sincere group of folks...

Thanks all .. and bless you !!

Eat to Live !!



  1. Aw, that's so exciting! So great! Congrats to Nick, you, your whole family! I wish nothing but the best for you all!

  2. Wow! I am so happy for you and your family. I have been reading The Horse Boy by Rupert Isaacson and it is giving me a deeper understanding of what it is like to raise an autistic child. I simply cannot imagine what it means to have two children with this condition. My heart goes out to you and your wife. I am glad the diet is making a positive difference in your sons' functional abilities. Blessings, Esmee

  3. That's terrific news Russ. I so agree (and laughed) about the patience. ;-)

  4. Thanks ladies for all your kind words... you folks are really making a difference in our lives... we are most grateful.

  5. Congrats, Russ. This is fabulous news! You are a great "RawDad". :)


  6. I'm so happy for you and your family, Russ. You must be overjoyed to see your son's progress. :-)
