My recovery from chronic yeast infections, bloating, gas, chronic constipation, lack of mental clarity, and acne over 20 years ago began with a change to a healthier diet and proper cleansing methods. Creating a healthy balance in the body is key, and to achieve that balance means a change in the terrain of the body. I have done a lot of research on this topic, and my insight has helped many people find their way to better health. This discussion will cover a basic approach, to more advanced suggestions. Bring paper and a pen!

Topics Include:
Food Combining Principles
Foods To Avoid
Food To Eat
Fermented Food
Change your pH
Hydrogen Peroxide
Support your Immune System
Bring more Oxygen into the Bloodstream

All the best,
Donna Perrone

BIO ------------

Ani is on a mission to show you how easy it is to enjoy healthy, organic, whole foods that are delicious, simple, and fast to prepare. Using seasonal, local, organic, fresh produce coupled with nuts and seeds, Ani creates tantalizing recipes that taste amazing, are good for you, and healthy for our planet. She teaches us why eating more organic, fresh, whole foods helps us maintain our ideal weight, lowers cholesterol, boosts our immune system, and helps us look and feel our best.

Ani learned these principles as a child. Growing up in upstate New York, her family had their own organic farm. She was raised on fresh, green juices and seasonal produce which cultivated the relationship she maintains with food today. She spent many years in the catering business and stumbled upon raw foods as a gourmet treat. After realizing the impact on her mental clarity and focus, she was hooked. She continued to notice positive changes in her energy level, productivity and sleep, and recognized there was more to raw foods than meets the eye. She's been dedicated to the raw foods lifestyle ever since.

Ani's the author of "Ani's Raw Food Desserts" and "Ani's Raw Food Kitchen," awarded "Best Vegetarian Cookbook USA 2007." Her next book, "Ani's Raw Food Essentials" will be available June 1, 2010. Ani has received four Best of Raw 2008 Awards for Best Chef, Favorite Cookbook, Favorite Educator, and won Sexiest Raw Vegan Woman in both 2008 and 2009.

Ani is the host of "Ani's Raw Food Kitchen Show", the award winning #1 uncooking show on 'YouTube.' Ani has been seen on the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods, Channel 7 ABC, and has been featured in numerous magazines including Food & Wine, Alternative Medicine, Oxygen, VegNews, Delicious Living, Vegetarian Times, and Get Fresh.

Additionally, Ani has developed living food vegan menus for Carnival Cruise Lines, Adidas headquarters, STOMP, and Whole Foods Markets, amongst others. Adidas fitness center depends on Ani to consult their athletes on how to 'fuel up' with raw nutrition for optimal performance.

Being an athlete herself and excelling in gymnastics and track and field in high school, Ani has a thorough knowledge of nutrition and understands the importance of fueling your body well in order to achieve maximum performance.

Her charity work includes teaching and speaking at events to help raise money and awareness for organizations like In Defense of Animals, Animal Acres, Farm Sanctuary and organizing cooking play shops for children ages 5-16. In addition, Ani volunteers at Project Angel Food, a non-profit organization providing 1,300 free meals per week to HIV and cancer patients, and teaches underprivileged kids how to garden and make food in urban areas at Community Services Unlimited in South Central LA.

Ani lives in Los Angeles with her Rhodesian Ridgeback, Kanga, who she rescued nine years ago. Fifty pounds underweight at the time, Ani healed Kanga back to health with raw foods, applying the same principles that she uses for humans to her dog. She is currently working on her next book along with planning projects for TV, DVD, and Web. To watch Ani's videos, for free recipes, and to keep track of her latest projects, visit her at:

About Dr. Craig B. Sommers

Craig Sommers was living the standard American lifestyle, eating the standard American diet (SAD), until the early 1990's when his mother was diagnosed with cancer and then heart disease. While visiting his mother in the hospital, after one in a series of unsuccessful surgeries, a mysterious stranger entered her hospital room. He handed Mrs. Sommers his business card and suggested that she give him a call if she was interested in learning how to heal herself through diet and lifestyle changes. Neither Craig nor his mother ever heard from that man again, but Craig was so inspired by his suggestion that he began to seek out information on Natural Healing. Since that day in the hospital, Dr. Sommers has single mindedly pursued knowledge of holistic healing, nutrition, and lifestyle. He first learned enough to help his mother reverse heart disease and then began to peruse natural health for himself and others. He opened a health food store on Long Island and when that became too stressful, he sold the store and pursued a doctorate in naturopathy. Dr. Sommers now travels the globe giving lectures on how to achieve optimum health through proper nutrition and lifestyle habits. He is also a certified yoga instructor, certified nutritionist and the author of Raw Foods Bible, a comprehensive easy to read guide to the optimum diet and lifestyle. Craig's website is
