NaturalNewsBlogs How Big Can Their Noses Get?

If I had been told as a child that I would write a book on nutrition and nutrition when I was older, let alone doing a health-related radio show for over 36 years, I would have thought that whoever told me that was out of their minds. When I lived in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I ate anything and everything that had a face or a mother, except dead, rotting pig bodies, though we ate bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow wonderfully clean. goods) . It was no different during high school and college. In fact, my diet change didn’t come until I was in my thirties.

To put things in perspective, after graduating from Weequahic High School and before attending Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job with a butcher. I was the delivery person and occasionally had to go to the abattoir to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness or awareness, because then no change ever came, despite the horrors I saw almost daily.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to the city of Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by their neighborhood and their income. To say it was a “plastic” community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the superficiality finally grabbed me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear that she needed to be around her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and broke up for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen in late 1974, when one day she said, “Let’s become vegetarians”. I have no idea what got into my mind to say it, but I said, “Okay”! That’s when I went to the freezer and took out $100 worth of frozen dead body parts and gave them to a social worker who lived behind us. Well, everything went well for about a week, and then the chick broke up with another boy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a few weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or really how to prepare anything. For about a month I lived on carrots, celery sticks and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural development. Anyway, while walking through the city of Aspen, I saw a small vegetarian restaurant called “The Little Kitchen”.

Let me back up a little bit. It was April 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff from Ajax Mountain was filling the streets with knee-deep mud. Now Aspen was great for skiing, but it was a shame to walk in when the snow melted.

I was ready to give up and I needed a warmer place. I’ll explain it like this.

But now back to “The Little Kitchen”. Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and was basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So I drove into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they wanted to teach me how to cook. I told them I would wash the dishes and empty their trash. Then they asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me: “Let’s make a deal. You do our tax return and we will feed you too”. So over the next few weeks, I filed their taxes, washed the dishes, emptied the trash, and learned as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud got to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a man named Foder. The name of the book was, “Hawaii”. As I flipped through the book, I noticed that in Lahaina, Maui, there was a small vegetarian restaurant called “Mr. Natural’s.” I decided then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at “Mr. Natural’s”. Long story short, that’s exactly what happened.

So I’m working at “Mr. Natural’s” and learning all I can about my new food style – it’s been great. Every afternoon we closed for lunch around 1 pm and went to the Sheraton Hotel in Kaanapali to play volleyball while someone stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Being the new guy and not really knowing how to cook, I never thought I would be asked to stay behind and cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that’s exactly what happened; it was my turn. That was a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Luckily a friend of mine was sitting in the gazebo of the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only things he could cook were enchiladas. He said his enchiladas were bean and dairy free. I told him I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but that he had to show it to me because it was my turn to make dinner.

Well, the boys came back from playing volleyball and I was asked what’s for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner was not enthusiastic. I told him mine was bean and dairy free. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble man that I was, I smiled and said “You expected a little less”? It was apparently so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people were walking around on the Lahaina broadcast, “enchiladas at “Natural’s” tonight.” I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed and somehow I was drawn to a small health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to a truck driver. The guys who ran the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company, they could probably lock up the state. Then they found out I was an accountant and “Down to Earth” was born. “Down to Earth” became the largest health food retailer in the islands, and I was their chief financial officer and co-manager of their largest store for 13 years.

In 1981 I started doing a weekly radio show to try to expose people to a vegetarian diet and stop them from killing innocent creatures. I’m still doing that show. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors so as not to compromise my honesty. One minor hiccup was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to silence all the doctors who would call me asking for my references.

By doing this radio show, through endless research, I was able to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unscrupulous as it may be, allowed me to realize how broken our health system is. This is covered extensively in the Introduction and throughout the book, and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, became nationally certified as a massage therapist for sports injuries, and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years, I finally came back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii’s premier fitness clubs. There I met the love of my life with whom I have been together since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. She said: “If you want to be with me, you have to stop working on naked women”. So I went back into accounting and was Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was a baby, I had no idea what a “chicken” or “egg” or “fish” or “pig” or “cow” was. My diet was forced on me by my parents, just as their parents had imposed on them. It was by the grace of God that I could put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and raise my consciousness.

The road I started walking in 1975 eventually led me to the point where I wrote my book “A Healthy Diet for an Insane World”. Hopefully the information herein is enlightening, motivating and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do from conditioning is not always the best way to follow. I hope that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered on my path, you will have a better perspective of which path is best for you, not only for your health but also for your consciousness.

Last but not least, after I was vaccinated as a child, I got asthma, which has plagued me all my life. In 2007, I was exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which cleared up my asthma in 3 days and hasn’t come back for over 10 years. That, as the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis and more. Because of its detoxifying effects through the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all cells in the body, it also removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other junk thrown into the environment by Big Business. .
