A show about healthy living, primarily through a raw/living food diet and lifestyle. If you’re not familiar with the raw food diet, it means eating foods as Nature creates them for us, organic, whole and unheated. Rhio also explores other natural approaches for achieving good health and the politics of food.
Rhio and Leigh interview Brenda Cobb, author of The Living Foods Lifestyle and founder/director of The Living Foods Institute in Atlanta, GA. Brenda was diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer and was told by her doctor that she would need to have chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Having already experienced the poor results from these protocols with her mother and other relatives, Brenda refused. She subsequently healed herself of these diseases by following the raw/live food diet and lifestyle. When she returned to her doctor six months later and was retested, he became so impressed with her results that he became a 100% raw foodist.
Rhio and Leigh interview award-winning author Ani Phyo, whose latest book, Ani’s Raw Food Essentials will be out on May 3rd. Ani is also the host of Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen Show, excerpts from which can be seen on youtube. With her exotic beauty and charming personality and presence, Ani has been able to capture people’s hearts, and interest them in making some dietary changes for better health.

After achieving a 60 lb. weight loss herself, going from 185 lbs. and size 12/14 to 125 lbs. and a petite size 4, Carolyn specializes in helping people with weight loss through Carolyn’s Weight Loss System™, Losing Weight the Natural Way and Keeping it Off!
This week Rhio and Leigh interview Michael Saripkin, the Raw Gourmand. After a chance remark from his doctor comparing him to a cow, Michael decided he was going to eat like a cow and in the process discovered that he wasn’t the only one out there eating Nature’s raw food. While losing 103 lbs. (with another 50 to go) Michael also brought his blood pressure, blood sugar and other health markers to normal.
