Hi, everyone, this is Kevin Gianni, and I'd like to welcome you to a very special Raw Summit Teleseminar, which can be found online at http://www.rawsummitarchives.com. The purpose of the Raw Summit is to pass along cutting edge information about raw and living food technologies for you to reach optimal health, wellness, and success. Today, I have a special guest who has been a 100% raw for over 7 years and is the author of Raw Spirit, a book on transitioning and thriving with the raw food lifestyle. So Matt Monarch, I want to welcome you to the Raw Summit.
Raw Summit Excerpt with Matt Monarch, a raw food specialist and author of Raw Spirit.
Kevin: This is going to be an awesome interview; I know it already and let's start just by telling everyone how you got to where you are right now.
Matt: Alright. Seven years ago I was actually living in New York City. I had an ideal job at MTV Networks working in Times Square. So here I am, on the Standard American Diet. One day, I was in my office and this man handed me a book and it is called 'Become Younger' by Dr. Norman Walker, who supposedly lived well over 100 years old. I opened that book and I couldn't believe what I was reading, like what certain foods were actually doing to my system and how they were damaging me. I didn't even know raw food diet existed at that time. I thought I had the healthiest diet anyone could eat. So I finished that book overnight, and the next day I went 100% raw, 7 years ago and I've never looked back since.
Kevin: Wow! When you are reading that book what sort of things came upon you as you were looking through this at night?
Matt: Well, I'm sitting there reading what certain foods that I was continually eating were doing to me, such as refined sugar and processed starches, and I just couldn't believe it. I thought I've discovered something huge. I thought I've discovered gold.
Kevin: Okay, and when you made the transition, did you just start 100% raw?
Matt: Yes. I went 100% raw overnight.
Kevin: Okay. Let's talk about how did feel when you went 100% raw?
Matt: Well, I wasn't really sure what was going to be happening. When made the decision, it was a done deal, there was no turning back. So went 100% raw. I went through detoxification and I was a little
Matt: And that was tremendously beneficial for me.
Kevin: Let's talk about eating the things you were eating and then going 100% raw and then getting into colon hydrotherapy, all these probably in very short period of time. How did you get into it and what were the benefits that you received from it?
Matt: Okay. Actually when I was sitting there at work, I would get all sorts tons of crazy gas on my system. I would go in the bathroom nonstop and actually the person that told me about the raw food diet, his older brother was a colon therapist.
Matt: So I actually did one session before I went 100% raw and so what I did was every time I started get going through detox and it was just too much to handle I would do a Colonic Irrigation and that transported me right back to feeling in complete bliss. I get so spiritually high when I do one of those. Pretty crazy, being clean is a very important aspect to this type of lifestyle.
Kevin: Sure. One of the first chapters of your book is, I Belong in Another Planet, can we talk about that?
Matt: Yes. So when you become 100% raw, you go through a complete transformation, not only physical, I literally lost 20 pounds in probably 2 or 3 weeks, but you go through a spiritual transformation, emotional and much more. So here I am 20 pounds lighter. I was living in New York
Additionally, when I became raw, I wasn't used to this empty feeling in my stomach anymore. You do not cook food to medicate yourself; there are psychological, emotional issues that rise to the surface.
Kevin: So that is the number one reason?
Kevin: And tell me about that.
Matt: So I was 100% raw for six months now and I decided to do something called Psylium Bentonite cleanse. Psylium is a strong fiber husk, Bentonite is a volcanic clay, and you know for anybody who's ever tried one of these drinks, you know it's pretty tough on the system. Well, I did the most extreme Psylium Bentonite cleanses that you can possibly do. For seven days, you eat no food whatsoever, and every single day you are supposed to do a Psylium Bentonite drink five times a day for seven
Matt: So here I am, a young guy, six months being raw. I was doing colon hydrotherapy more than once a month and do you think a young guy like me would be completely cleaned out from all this waste?
Matt: Well, my colon therapist couldn't believe what was coming out of my system, just gobs of mucoid plaque and all sorts of crazy things. And something happened to me for the first time in my life after I got that last colonic in the left with the Psylium and Bentonite out of me. I started to get a vibration and it was right in my forehead and I had no idea what it was. The 100% raw food diet threw me into spirituality, I was never into this thing. I was president of my fraternity in college, and I'm talking like the number one partying fraternity. So here I am experiencing this, my mainstream of friends and my brother just think I'm absolutely nuts when I talk about this thing, the steps. So I went to the bookstore, I'm buying all these books on spirituality, I'm reading what different religions were saying, I started learning about meridians and energy fields, and I started learning about the chakra system, and so this really sent out to me. I felt like this might have been the third eye chakra, and I thought I had something but (my friends and my family) just think that's all hocus pocus. Then later, I came across another book by Norman Walker, 'The Natural Way to Vibrant Health,' and he actually gave a scientific explanation of what the third eye actually is doing and what it is. He says that the pineal gland which is located right in that area is the organ that receives that cosmic energy and he said that if the thalamus didn't buffer it, it would completely disintegrate because of how powerful that energy is. But then the thalamus buffers all that energy. It goes to the hypothalamus and is distributed throughout our body to do whatever we want.
Matt: Yes, it's pretty amazing and you know this guy was doing everything that I was doing. He was a 100% raw. He did the cleansing and you know I didn't think that was crazy anymore.
Kevin: I imagine that is some of the stuff that a lot of people go through; dealing with family, dealing with the strange feeling that your body is feeling. What is some of the advice that you can give
Matt: Well said. It's not easy to become 100% raw. Okay let me put forth an example real quick to help explain all these. There are a lot of diets out there today and I'm sure you've heard many of them
