Today is extremely bittersweet – and not just because we’re making a smoothie with cacao! This is the final episode of the original healthtalks. The show will be back for a third season, but it will look a little different. Mel, Sam and I have decided to step back and just take on guest host roles from time to time so that we’re able to focus more on our individual projects.

I haven’t eaten anything that isn’t organic in three years – to the day, today actually (it’s been three years since I started Gerson Therapy – woo!). And I don’t plan on ever going back to eating conventional food. Honestly, I don’t see why organic food should be made out to be the odd way of eating when it’s actually the way we are designed to eat. Our bodies are not designed to consume chemicals, and yet we think it’s entirely normal to eat fruits and vegetables that have been sprayed with them and grown in soils that are drenched in them. Does anyone else think that’s nuts?

When I was first diagnosed with cancer and started devouring every healing success story I could find, I desperately wanted to join the ranks. I wanted to be able to call myself a survivor more than anything – and so I did. The moment I made the decision to become an empowered participant in my healing was the moment I became a cancer survivor, because this was the moment I stopped being a victim.

Raw desserts, in particular, are my favourite things to make and eat. But is an all-raw diet good for us?
