This humble work is free, share, comment
as much as you like, we hope you enjoy it It does NOT intend to give lessons
but provide with information. A dvd with raw food recipes can be purchased
on the following websites www.planeted.eu
www.santenaturopathie.com Thanks Paula and her daughter for the transcript.
Thanks Jill for the translation. Nowadays, in the world, food is
getting worse and worse. Meat, alcohol, dairy products…
They systematically triggered all the painful diseases we know.
There are lots of diseases that we know well.
That we heal well, supposedly. And then the people die.
It is not with poisons that would sicken a healthy body
that we can hope to cure people. IRENE – A FOOD CHANGE DIARY A friend told me about a naturopath.
She eats only fruits and vegetables Everything raw.
Her name is Irene. In fact, it’s been a while now that
I am looking for a diet that really suits me.
Today my diet is based on dairies, pasta
junk food, cheese, meat. True enough, I’m not comfortable
with this diet. It sucks my energy.
I constantly think about eating. My friends call me “the bottom-less
pet” This Irene intrigues me, so let’s try. When we are born, what is the first
thing we do? Breathing. Screaming and breathing.
We arrive into this world and leave it in a breath.
The second thing is eating. The third thing is to fall asleep to
digest. And the fourth is to eliminate the
residues of the digestion. So from these four basic laws,
which are breathing, eating, sleeping and eliminating,
we can finally work. We can function. We have exactly the same digestive
system than apes: gorillas, chimpanzees, orang utans,
from whom, or so it seems, we descend.
So same digestive system, same engine,
same fuel! And what do apes feed on, if not fruit,
leaves and tender roots which they do not cook. I’m back from my first encounter with
Irene. And what an encounter!
She is lyrical, she is generous, she is capricious,
she is mischievous, and stubborn like a mule.
She told me that I had to cleanse my body.
Well, she’s given me a dose of castor oil.
This is castor oil. Ah, just to see the damn thing …
It turns out that this is still a lubricant used in aircraft engines
and in the Middle Ages, it was used for torture!
And it was a huge shock for my body, it is a very very violent purgative.
Irene said very effective. So I spent an afternoon
half-conscious in a bathtub. I wasn’t able to sit on the toilet.
Once the effects of the purge wore off,
having eaten nothing throughout the day,
you know, I felt my spirit, my thinking was very clear.
I was very, very aware of my body. I felt purified, that’s how I felt.
Well, finally it worked! What worries me is that Irene
predicted repeated purges like that one.
Then what, huh? Still, I’m interested, because Irene
says I can gradually get rid of my allergy attacks which
usually strike during spring. Pollen allergy…
I tried everything, huh? anti histaminics, treatments…
Usually, every spring, I take a double dose of cortisone.
Ah! This castor oil, really, I have to get rid of it.
A change of diet is why I went to see Irene,
but to hear that my body is a trash? We are not sick by misfortune.
We are not sick because of germs we are not sick because of viruses.
Viruses and microbes can only live in an environment where they find
their food: in a dustbin. But it is not the microbes and viruses
that must be killed it is the rubbish bean that needs to be
cleaned. And if we give our body the food that
suits it, which is made for it, and when we
clean our cells, well, the eyes become brighter, the
energy comes back and our health improves and our
body functions. Health is apparently the greatest
wealth of man. I also discovered one hell of a thing:
sprouts. Germinated seeds. I had no idea, it’s incredible. Just
incredible. What strikes me is that my body
clearly recognizes that it is an optimized fuel for it.
I eat vegetables and germinated seeds
and there is a feeling of complete adequacy.
Before that, I’d have chewed salad and mumbled “This is water
When do I get real food?” Now, to my amazement,
I eat a good bowl of salad with seeds and straight away, I can go running,
without the slightest digestive fatigue.
And without hunger. I’m a little torn apart between
conventional and raw vegetable food. It is not always easy
but in any case, in sports, it seems really effective.
At Irene’s, not long ago, I met a former professional handball
player. In 2005 it began with a stroke.
I had a lot of trouble getting over it, and then I had surgery of the carotid
artery. Ever since, I tried to take medicine to
loose weight, and to reduce my diabetes.
I’m always asking my doctors: “Can I swallow less medication?”
Because once, even 3 months ago, I was eating 20 pills a day.
And I was told “You will need more and more drugs,
and it is thanks to the chemistry that you are alive,
do not forget it”. Right, at some point in my life,
I did need the pills, but I don’t want to eat chemistry
for all the years I have left to live. I was once given a diet by a
nutritionist and at the end of the month, I had
lost 6 kg, and I no longer needed insulin.
But then, it stagnated. From then on, I have not lost weight.
Until I met Mrs. Grosjean. I told her “Nutritionists, I’ve seen so
many of them and I know what they say, it’s always
the same thing: I eat too much.
And then I was really amazed by what I heard.
Stunned. The raw diet, I had never heard of it.
I’d never been told I should not eat starchy food,
nor meat or dairy. Instead, every day, I had to eat 100
grams of meat and 100 grams of carbohydrates –
during each meal. And I had to eat 2 fruits per day and
that was all. With the old system I still felt bullied
because I was always hungry. I had to eat 50 grams of bread, I had
to eat 10 grams of butter You always feel hungry and if you
want to eat an apple for example, you cannot, because if you eat an
apple more, you take 100 units of diabetes and
more. Today, if I want an apple, I eat an
apple. If I want to eat grapes, I eat grapes.
Whereas before, grapes were forbidden.
The banana, prohibited. The avocado, prohibited.
I told Irene that if I eat too many fruits,
automatically my blood sugar would rise
and so would the rate of insulin, and insulin makes you fat,
so here we are: in a vicious circle. And when she told me: “You can eat
fruit at will, but do not eat carbs,” I said, “Well listen, today I’m going to
eat two fruits more and then tomorrow, when I’ll measure
my diabetes rates and it will be huge. ”
The next day, it was lower than usual I decreased my insulin, I dropped my
pills by a third and my diabetes continued to
decline. The doctor said: “Listen, eat
whatever you want but keep taking your medication,
you see they’re finally effective”. I told him “No, because I have
lowered their intake by a third.” I’ve lost 17 kg, I feel much better, I’m
less exposed to pain. I now know the food will be my
medicine. I thought about this quote from
Hippocrates, a phrase that has become a slogan:
“Let food be your only medicine.” The problem is that it’s almost the
end of winter and dealing with my pollen allergy
without medical support, won’t be easy.
It looks a bit like an obstacle race, this dietary transition.
That’s why I’m leaving, to take a step back.
I’m gonna meet a guy who’s been helped by Irene for a while.
Irene told me that he has some interesting stuff to tell me. I’ve seen Mrs. Grosjean 3 times over
the last 20 years. First time I had a very painful
sciatica. I weighed 104 kgs and was 1m74 tall.
She made me fast for 9 days. I lost between 10 to 12 kg. No more
sciatic. I then gradually resumed eating.
I had a very complex job: I was running night clubs
Restaurants and hotels. The “Grande Bouffe” (gastronomy)
took over again. I used to play rugby, and had a
serious car accident. It put me in a terrible disarray.
I had 17 fractures, spent 11 days in a coma…
Rugby was over for me. I was 40 years old.
And I failed for something even more serious.
Drugs. I will not deny I found myself in jail.
Now, I have no night clubs any longer, no bars,
I don’t have much left actually. Quitting rugby was a hard blow.
I thought “This is the end of me.” I came to see Mrs. Grosjean and I
could quit drugs. And the years passed.
I was always in hotels, bars, nightclubs
Then I fell for alcohol. 10 years of madness, it was that bar.
We worked 150 hours a week and drank as much as the customers.
This is why, a month ago, I came to see Mrs. Grosjean:
for drinking issues… And it’s been a month, and
I got rid of the alcohol. I don’t even drink a pastis! (famous
Southern French alcohol) I have a treatment, a diet as they say.
For breakfast, prune juice, dried fruits, nothing else.
You’ll be amazed: no hunger until noon!
Before that, I’d have a ham sandwich at 10am – with butter!
You know what they say in my home town?
That I got into a cult because I cut the pastis.
I used to drink 20 or 30 of them per day!
It wasn’t really a drinking problem. The real drunk people drinks alone, at
home. But as I was out all the time,
it was the same in the end. Striking results from our trip in
Iceland. We just cycled 3000kms in 3 months
with a baby in the carriage behind our tandem.
In terms of food: vegetables, sprouts. And: sparkling shape, no cravings,
no hunger, high performance in sports,
complete disappearance of digestive fatigue.
I am still a little obsessed with food, I think about all the time
but I believe that it is gluttony. This living raw food has amazing
rentability, I feel that it is close to 100%.
Before that, we used to eat pasta and meat,
and we needed more energy to digest it
than it gives to our body to do sports. Raw vegetable food apparently gives
me back all its energy. I am delighted with the progress that
things follow although I still dream of a good pasta
dish once in a while! The trick is that you must be
equipped. Here’s the raw spaghetti machine!
Costs about 40 euros and I’ll show you how to make a
sauce. Garlic, basil, tomatoes, olive oil,
raisins, dried tomatoes and now it is ready:
the “bolognese sauce” with a little lemon.
Here we have the little “champburgers”:
mushroom cream sauce with a small base of hazelnuts,
raisins, dried tomatoes, basil, Italian herbs.
Here this couscous was made with parsnip,
cashew nuts, a squeeze of lemon, salt or vegetable broth
with broccoli and lemon, marinated peppers, olives
Here we have sprouts with parsley, raisins,
avocados, tomatoes, olives This is a small herbs and vegetable
cheese with no milk, either from a cow, a
sheep or a goat. Just with seaweeds, cashews, garlic,
chives and a bit of agar-agar to thicken it.
Those little “crackers” are made of germinated seeds
on which we put a little of this cashew cheese.
The bolognaise sauce is again made of dried tomatoes
Italian herbs, olive oil, fresh tomatoes,
zucchinis, carrots One can cook amazingly for a very
low cost! On one hand I realize that I eat 2
times, 2 and a half times less food per day
than I used to, I’ve switched from 5 to 2 meals a day.
On the other hand, no meat, no dairies
Means the costs are split by 3. The savings I do can be reinvested
in focusing on good quality. I’ve also learnt recently
that the meat industry, on the world scale,
pollutes nine times more that all types of transports.
Once you’ve said that you’ve said everything.
I’ve become a happy vegan who is glad, from time to time, to eat
a mango from Peru or dates from Morocco.
About Morocco, I’ve met at Irene’s a young Moroccan guy
who practises raw food and talks about it in an interesting
and poetic way. I haven’t met Irene randomly
but I didn’t know Irene’s value back at that moment.
I was in my thirties and I felt my body gained weight
from time to time. I’ve kept on practising sports
but I felt that it slowed down, then it came back,
it slowed down then it came back. I’ve had weight issues for 10 years.
To the conventional diets I knew, or supermarket’s food, I tried many
times, and would reach a temporary
efficiency. And then,
when I met Mrs Irene, I told her about sport
about asthma and breating and for my son who breathes badly.
She told me about her way to eat: it’s not a diet, it’s a full living -and
eating- style, and she changed everything I used to
eat. I agreed, I heard,
I quite understood the thing, I used that,
I’ve done the trainings with her and after 2 months I felt better about
my weight. On the waistline my size was a L-XL
And now I can wear M sized trousers. Why I feel this is efficient:
because I’ve got rid of the allergy, now the allergy is over.
And I feel certain about it because it has been 3 months
since I’ve felt the change and I’ve stopped the medications
I used to take for a year. Before all that, my way to eat was:
enter in the food shops And watch what’s in,
The daily bread, couscous, meat, some pasta.
Today I’ve almost stopped this totally, My life has completely changed
because I love life, I have the taste of life,
I’ve felt that my head, even my head, it has changed: my brain has
changed Because I’ve understood:
I use what I use for me first. I have the proof: the proof is my
body, This body I’ve dreamed about for 10
years. I like the way Abdel talks about it.
There’s no proselytism. There’s no need of it anyway.
I am the living proof that this diet suits me,
And it’s most of all valid for Irene. I am the first one to be startled,
even if I’ve known her for a while now,
startled to see the energy she carries daily.
She’s always in a great shape. I was born in 1930, 4 times 20 years
ago. Like all mammals
we are made to live 5 times the growth time of our long bones,
that means 5 times 20 to 25 years. My favourite colleague: dr Coluchi
from Lisbon, died aged 108 and was still working
until he was 103 and frankly I do believe it is normal:
you’re not old when you’re 80! I’ve just spent 15 days in Greece
eating cucumbers and tomatoes and once more
I’ve discovered a new facet of Irene’s character,
that is Irene as a mum, as a granny,
Irene with her family and we’ve had an enriching stay. Irene, you’ve again amazed me.
I tell myself I won’t do the same thing 20 years ahead in
time. When I make the inventory of the
things I have to fix… At times I felt you were
more agile than me. Yes but you have 20 years
to get younger, and to stop doing things you used to do
and that made you getting older. Today I have to congratulate you.
Because you have taken a great decision,
a wonderful decision: you’re going to give yourself
back your freedom We’re being quite solemn here!
Oh, this is quite worth it, isn’t it? Deciding to stop being
the slave of a cigaret butt is not an easy task,
because what they never tell you about tobacco is that
it contains opiates, that is traces of opium
that calm down, so this is obvious:
why do we smoke? Because not being fed
with living food that brings energy,
we need stimulants. And when our brain is excited,
Ii needs tranquilizers That is meat, fries=
Need for coffee, alcohol=need for tobacco.
I’ve needed it, I know what it is like; It’s not a critic.
But still it’s not normal that civilized beings need
a boost such as coffee to get started in the morning. Normally when you eat
the way nature wanted us to, in the morning you wake up,
you don’t need coffee, you don’t need tea,
you don’t need that poison which is only a bad cheque
on our energetic system. You can replace this
with cashew nut milk, dates milk, almond milk,
hazelnut milk or fruits that bring you energy.
Can the recovery be that spectacular?
I’ve quite a tendency to doubt it. To recover means bringing
the missing elements and take away the ones that are in
excess. In order to have TV,
you need a TV set, in order to phone,
you need a telephone, and in order to think,
to be linked tolife intelligence, We have our little brain cells
and nerve cells which need elements called neuromediators
which need many minerals that the usual present food doesn’t
bring them. That explains the fall of our present
world And the fact that it walks the wrong
way round. When you are immersed
in these practices since you were very young,
these practices that were in some way
imposed by your family hierarchy When you’re born into a family
where it is part of daily life, you are bound, but not necessarily
obliged, to be sensitive to it.
The main wealth I acquired from my education
is the ability to believe nothing is really impossible after all.
Maybe the limits we have, there are the limits
that we give ourselves or that our environment gives us.
It is the most beautiful thing you taught me
and I thank you. Throughout our lives,
we try as much as possible to break the frame
but it is true that we still puts limits, we try to work on it,
to remove the narrowness of our vision.
While the principles may seem restrictive and rigid,
it is not a rigid frame, it opens a perspective.
Provided, however, we have the individual capacity
to break the locks. Absolutely, it opens up on hopes
not only at an individual level, at a collective level,
in that it calls into question the malfunctions of our society.
Malfunctions that Irene’s proposals can help to overcome
in part or in whole. It is an opportunity to a change of
society. Where the human quality of life is at
the heart of researches. The magic of Irene’s methods
is that once you’ve done the experiment,
it is always there, you know it works. You think completely differently.
If one day you feel a little low, say, you have a weekend ahead,
you take a purgative, you eat light, you drink a lot of water and it is gone
and it changes everything even your way of thinking:
overnight, it is completely modified. The big challenge is to keep it going
all the time. This is yet another step.
I had a medical accident when I was nearly 20 years.
It’s called, medically speaking, a delirious crisis.
It was mainly due to my being depressive.
I smoked too much back at that time. All this, and also the place I lived in,
Paris, on the ring, while I’m used to living in
the countryside. I worked crazy hours,
I was at school with unhealthy schedules.
It led me to this delicate situation. In many cases it may take 2 years or
more to fully recover –
with a period of psychiatric hospital. It is true that back then, I was lucky
to have my family, my parents, Irene who were there.
They were very, very present but also these methods Irene applies
with purges, with natural food. Well I’m not saying I do it all the time
but it gave me the power to come out the crisis
and it is thanks to this that I now understand
much better how to preserve my health,
it is essential to my balance and ultimately
the state in which we find ourselves, it is always a state of mind.
This remark by Gilles, it stuck in my This remark by Gilles, it stuck in my
head. head.
When he says “the precepts of Irene are hopeful.”
It seems essential to me, especially the idea that the scope of
this hope is not limited to the individual.
It makes me think of a film by Coline Serreau:
“Local solutions for a global disorder”.
It also reminds me Paul Aries. For me everything is connected.
It reminds me of Pierre Rahbi, and his “be sober and happy”.
It is not only what I put on my plate or in my belly
but how the person that makes me is a happy person,
who healthy interacts with the world and then how the consumer that I am
is shaping the world. In fact, it is a happy sobriety in the
plate. I would like to ask Pierre Rahbi what
he thinks about it. We have created a dual system
because the primitive man, he realized that he could not manage
by himself but must constitute what is called a
social body. The social body is a whole
unwavering ensemble in which human being is a cell.
Above a certain density of population,
the individual malfunctions, and why?
because it is not meant to have a global vision
of the social group that exceeds a certain threshold
and when it exceeds a certain threshold,
it creates anonymity, the unknown and as soon as enters anonymity,
enter prejudice and social toxins. The ideal city, of course,
is when the number of individuals is a number that anyone can
comprehend. Today, we are in nations.
The nation has produced anonymity. So-called “disease” in conventional
medicine, for me, they are simply
the efforts of the body to cure itself, revealing signals for us to change
what is wrong, the red lights I call them.
So we taught doctors to turn off the red lights
without changing what made them switch on.
The characteristic of the paradigm today,
is to have exalted the mineral and thus exalting the dead matter.
We do not look at the sky, we looked upon the earth,
searching what we can extract from this earth.
We got into this paradigm and it has evolved
with the human demiurge, the Promethean man,
man versus nature, we do not care about nature, we
wanna dominate nature .. . Profit was elected as the supreme
goal, you can do whatever you want, even
destroy life, the Earth, our children, whatever,
if it is profitable, it’s fine. Yes, this is what we are witnessing. TRANSITION is really the word of the
third millennium. Dietary transition, energetic
transition, social transition … It confirms that the experience is
beyond the scope of my plate. I am pleased to reinforce the feeling
that the model Irene presents de facto suggests that we can
manage resources in a way that relates to Pierre Rahbi
concepts. I really think these two are great
wises of the 21st century, even if they are two damn mules
ready to bicker, literally, for or against a piece of
steak! When we gave meat to herbivores,
what happened? These poor cows went crazy and
sick. Exactly the same problem for men.
I for one love a good steak … You can not find happiness in
instability and indefinite growth. Why is this society rotten today?
it is because we can not say “we are satisfied”.
I have food, I’m dressed, I have a roof over my head,
I’m fine, my family is fine. At home we say “abdulah”: I thank
God, I have everything I need, I’m already
rich. The root of sobriety for me, it is not
artificial. You each have a deep wisdom
and we can draw parallels between what happens in the human
body and what happens to the Earth.
Humus, humanity, humility, moisture is the vital substance that is
born of the waste by an alchemy of
transformation that leads to restore life.
Falling leaves restore life in trees. There is a problem today: we
interrupt this cycle but what happens in the system,
in this fundamental principle of life that wants to live
there are “cops”. The cop is the insect, the insect pest.
The insect pest, it is saying “you, my dear, you must disappear,
don’t procreate cause if you do, you’re going to degenerate
and any plant that produces degeneration
is deleted immediately, naturally . It is the law of nature, and there we
understand each other. Here we’re together. I began to understand 55 years ago.
55 years ago, you ate what? Ah well, like everyone else,
meat every day, because without meat,
we could not live! Well, before the war, my parents,
my grandparents and all the village people
ate meat once a week but after the war, we were told
we had to eat meat every day. We don’t have carnivores kidneys
which are able to filter uric acid that digestion of meat produces.
All alcohols, all coffees that are exciting
are essential to a dead food, with no energy.
Dairy products were also heavily promoted
just after the war, when pasteurization was discovered,
and refrigeration and people could do business with
milk from cows cow milk that nature has made for
calves, and only for them.
We don’t have a calf’s digestive system
and it is certain that in the human system, the cow’s milk,
said to be rich in calcium, turns into an acid solution that
destroys our own minerals and calcium.
I understood all this when I started practicing as a
naturopath. I used to see people with
rheumatism, pain, deformations.
“What do you drink Madame?” “Ah me, 1 liter of milk every day.”
“What do you like to eat sir?” “Ah me, cheese, for the calcium.”
Obviously, the more they ate those dairies,
the more they were decalcified and the more painful it was for them.
And meat, alcohol, dairy products, they created all the painful diseases
in the world. Today If I have to eat meat or fish,
in fact, it is as if my body was telling me
“do not touch it.” I even feel that it is not actually
edible. I have accumulated so much
information on the subject, multiple readings,
investigations, interviews, books like “Eating animals” or
“Barbak” or the Campbell report
that I can not support the consumption
of animal products anymore. The irony of the thing is that
if I am invited to some friends’ and on the table there is a beautiful
piece of cheese , well, I’m likely to bite into it
and do so with happiness. One must accept its contradictions.
A great satisfaction, however: it is clear that I have no deficiency,
my performances in sports are great or even improved, or at least
my welfare while doing sport is really tenfold. Clearly, the whole world eats worse
and worse. And the first problem is cooking our
food because when our food is cooked,
we have destroyed its energy. The energy of the earth, water, sun,
that they are supposed to transmit, the energy of life: our essential fuel is
energy. From the moment we cooked our
food, we lost its energy
and this was replaced by the energy of drugs
the first of which was the flesh of animals
that we began to kill. Indeed, the flesh of animals
stimulates us, excites us but a stimulation and food
are two very different things. Food is now cooked, dead, with no
energy… it is a food that I would describe as
deadly as it is it who fills the hospitals,
prisons and asylums. I also observed another change:
I have usually quite a temper… Now I get angry less.
Maybe raw food is good for my mood. Must be linked with what
Irene told me the other day. If our body is composed
for two-thirds of its weight of liquids and for a third of cells,
a body of 60 kg is made of 40 liters of liquids
with 5-6 liters of blood. Blood is the only liquid which is
scientifically studied and the rest, what with the rest?
All the other liquids They’re the dump, the cellar and the
attic of our body. Our body store its garbage there. About problems caused by allergy to
pollen, much progress has been made
anyway. Before I was ill, all throughout the
spring, and all summer long
and now I still have fits, somewhat more severe,
but more spaced in time. Rest of the time I feel completely well.
Yeah, so allergy fits, I can manage with fast and rest.
Okay, in the worst case, I take some pills
when I’m really stuck with my job, but on the whole, so, fits became
very punctual and spare me long stretches of time
where I feel really well and that, only 5 years ago,
would have been unthinkable for me. I read an article in Bastamag
about the nutrient content of food and essentially how industrialization
has made the composition of essential nutrients
in our food precipitously drop. If I remember correctly, a peach today
contains 26 times less vitamin C than peaches 50-60 years ago.
Potato where there is no more vitamin A today
used to have lots 50 years ago and vitamin C half vanished in
potatoes too. Well at the same time finally, what I
see the trolleys at the supermarket
ain’t not fruits and vegetables. I wonder what a walk in a
supermarket would make Irene think?
Great sadness. because all those people who have a
full cart a cart full of false hopes,
because in that cart there are packages, boxes,
bundles, packages full of nothing, called foods but that have no energy,
no life. So we eat, we eat a lot and there?
Obviously there are winners! Orange puree, ginger, spinach,
banana, ice for a little sparkling touch!
Ah yes, because the transition is made now,
I completely changed the way I cook. I don’t use the oven anymore,
just occasionally the stove. I am equipped and I have all the
weapons now: a juicer, a dehydrator, a blender, a
mixer I bake my bread now, well I make raw
crackers made from germinated seeds
that go into the dehydrator rather than getting cooked.
This helps make bread that has no gluten
and is not cooked so everything is intact inside,
vitamins and minerals all preserved. The extractor for fruit juices,
vegetables juices and herbs juices the blender does these little
“delicatesses” and it is not more complicated than
cooking in a conventional manner, and it is
perhaps more simple, in any case, it goes fast,makes for
less dishes and is delicious! My business is to rebuild the health,
enabling the people I meet, who trust me and come to see me,
to help repair the damages caused by a civilization which is upside down.
It starts by relearning to breathe other than through a pinched nose
just not to die Then give our body the food that
nature has provided for it and raw, as it was intended.
After 55 years of practice, I say today that the ideal
is to eat fruits, vegetables, sprouts, since they alone are 25 times, 40
times richer in protein than meat,
4 times richer in calcium than dairy products,
3 times richer in iron than animal liver and they cost almost nothing
and we will repair health, we will give our body and cells
the nutrients they need I will not debate on the basis or
scientific legitimacy of the method and approach Irene
has but rather send a message.
What she offers is a way of life, at least the food component of a
living model, that guarantees well-being and
health. This is a tremendous individual
response to issues that affect the entire
community. Maybe a nice formula would be:
“invite the world into Irene’s kitchen will feed everybody and give them
control of their health and well-being.” What could be better?

  3. Merci pour ce partage, c'est très inspirant pour moi, et ça me donne l'élan de refaire une tentative de transition alimentaire (nourriture vivante) ! L'année dernière, j'ai abandonné, j'espère qu'elle sera durable cette fois !

  4. Bonjour à toutes et tous,

    Je veux transmettre une info…
    J'étais émerveiller par cette vidéo qui m'a ouvert les yeux et j'ai voulu m'y mettre.
    Problème, il y a quelques années on ne parlait pas trop des recettes crues, comment bien faire pour ne pas faire de bêtise, que peut on mélanger (accord d'aliment car tout ne se mélange pas), etc….

    Bref, avec tout ça, j'ai décidé de contacter Irène pour avoir de l'aide.
    La difficulté, est que je n'ai pas de moyen, je suis sans emploi et ne gagnant que 400€/mois difficile. De plus, je vie en Belgique. Que faire…je lui ai envoyé un mail avec mes problèmes et mon manque d'argent.

    Voici ce qu'elle m'a dit:
    mer. 02-10-13/20:03

    "Oui, chère madame, vous avez besoin d'une consultation d'environ une heure que je peux vous faire sur skype au prix de 70 euros "

    Vous imaginez ma tête :O
    J'étais esbaudie, peinée, étonnée…Je n'ai même pas répondu à son message (pour ne pas faire la mendiante)…Donc ce régime était fait que pour les riches et les autres allez-vous faire F….

    J'apprécie beaucoup Irène, mais voilà, elle a fait le choix pour ma part, d'aller vers le business et donner cet avantage qu'aux riches.

    J'ai dû me débrouiller, pas évident et j'ai toujours des lacunes mais on fait avec car on n'a pas d'aide, pas de moyen, pas d'argent,… nous ne sommes rien, une personne sans emploi sans importance.

  5. C'est pas les microbes, les virus qu'il faut tuer, c'est la poubelle qu'il faut nettoyer ! a 4.36 mn

  6. Elle est mon idole et mon modèle… J'aimerais être comme elle à son âge… Je l'adore… Irène je t'aime…

  7. Merci beaucoup Mme Irène pour la belle video c'est un grand bonheur de vous connaître que Dieu te protège 💖💙❤️

  8. Dans le coran, une sourate dit que nous pouvons manger ce qui est dans la mer et sur terre sauf le porc qui lui est le recycleur de la nature. Dans toute chose, soyons dans l équilibre. Et respectons ce qui nous a été offert par Dieu. Coeurdialement.

  9. le cerveau de bien des gens en France est quelque peu en surchauffe ! c es gens sont à la recherche de raisons magiques à leurs problèmes .. le mal vivre

  10. L'alimentation vivante m'intéresse beaucoup, mais par où commencer !!! je vis au Québec et l'hiver est long ici et manger cru et froid ne réchauffe pas beaucoup……

  11. Ce Éric Gandon avait refusé au mois d'avril de me donner des renseignements concernant le jeûne et mes maladies. Il voulait que je m'inscrive sur son site pour faire une évaluartion. 150€ , rien que çà??? Il s'emmerde pas . Pas grave , en juin 2017 je fais donc un petit jeûne de 4 jours comme un grand , en restant chez moi et basta . Miracle ma rétention d'eau que j'avais dans les jambes et qui me fatiguait beaucoup a complètement disparu à 100/100; mon hypertention de 50/100 et mon arthrose du cou aussi . Bon enfin elle est revenu apres une semaine. Mais comme je sais que ce genre de maladies est soigné à 100/100 avec le jeûne , je ne me fais pas de soucis . Je vais faire un je$une d'une semaine et il y a de grande chance que mon arthrose disparaisse à 100/100. Voici un site du Canada sur le JEUNE ou vous pouvez vous inscrire , cela ne coute rien d'avoir des renseignements gratuits et d'essayer vous aussi de vous soigner gratuitement. Avant de laisser des sous dans des groupes organisés de jeûnes avec randonnées etc etc . Des charlots tous ces trucs à fric." Forums de Jeûne et santé " Canada

  12. Irène Grosjean est loin d'être la seule personne à vivre de cette façon; il y a eu beaucoup de prédécesseurs, tant aux US que dans d'autres pays dont la France, dont certains thérapeutes qui comme elles ont rééduqué et guéri de nombreuses personnes dont certaines abandonnées par la médecine officielle …à méditer mais surtout à essayer sérieusement

  13. "Et de quoi se nourrissent les grands singes, si ce n'est de fruits de feuilles et de racines tendres ?" : D'insectes, d’œufs, d'oisillons, parfois même d'autre petits singes. Ce hauteur de 30% Environ. (R.Masson). Cette dame à l'air fort sympathique, mais elle use abondamment du sophisme et de raccourcis simplistes absolument incroyables. J'invite les gens qui l'écoute à conserver un esprit critique, car en matière d'alimentation, ce qui est trop catégorique est suspect, d'autant plus quand il ne repose sur aucune base tangibles (ou du moins observable dans la réalité). Je respecte cependant cette dame, et n'ai absolument rien contre elle. Son discours est intéressant, mais manque quelque peu de nuances.

  14. A quoi sert l'huile de ricin ? On doit boire ça pour purger ? Mais est ce que c'est la même qu'on utilise pour la barbe ? 🤔

  15. je ne comprends pas qu'il y est 66 pouces en bas, je pense que ça doit être les gourmands de la "mal bouffe" et du non sens des vraies valeurs alimentaires. Je suis doucement vos conseils qui m'ont donné envie( plutôt un besoin pour mon corps) de commencer

  16. Merci à vous, de ce très beau témoignage de Santé. Merci à Irène pour son bon sens et la générosité de le partager.

  17. Dis moi tes graines tu les as faîtes tremper pour ôter le principe de germination pour te permettre de bien digérer !?

  18. Vidéo inspirante et utile à tous. Beaucoup de bon sens.
    Par contre, les bruits de mastication et de déglutition horripilants desservent un peu 🙂

  19. Rien que de voir la vidéo ça met en appétit. En plus l'ambiance est agréable, chaleureuse et sympathique. C''est coloré et il se dégage plein d'amour. ça donne envie de manger. Je suis preneuse. M

  20. bonjour je suis professeur en biologie vos méthodes m’intéressent beaucoup comment vous contacter pour pouvoir avoir une de vos formations je suis prête à venir en France mon numéro de Téléphone 212 662125501 mon e-mail : [email protected] je vous remercie je vous adore

  21. Magnifique montage vidéo, j' ai précédemment regardé plein de vidéos d'Irène et de sa fille Nelly. Mais vraiment celle-ci de vidéo est sans aucun doute celle que je vais partager en tout premier tout autour de moi. Un excellent préambule aux recherches suivantes concernant l'alimentation vivante façon famille Grosjean pour ceux à qui celà parle. Merci beaucoup_

  22. Qui peut oser contredire tous ces témoignages franchement faut avoir un QI qui avoisine le zéro . Notre alimentation est celle que nous offre la nature à l’état naturel c’est tout .

  24. C'est vrai… quand on arrête des cochonneries… on se rends compte qu'on était gourmands ! Et pour ne pas manger il faut trouver d'autres préoccupations 😂

  25. je suis en train de jeûner, depuis une semaine, et vous n'arrêtez pas de montrer des gens qui bouffent, merde !!!

  26. Bonjour Irène ..,que pensez vous de ce vidéo de Thierry….?…

    Pourquoi est ce que le régime carnivore "marche" ?

    Merci…bp..

  27. Tu as pris une purge ..mais quand on a les intestins propres ..si on peut dire..et que le corps…est entrain de se nettoyer..on sent effectivement on a le cerveau qui marche mieux…tout point de vue…

  28. C'est très intéressant, mais je trouve ça désagréable de t'entendre parler en machouillant et en croquant…perso je trouve pas ça élégant et pas très poli. Dommage pour moi.

  29. Anti Médoc point barre

  34. j'imagine que les 118 personnes qui n'ont pas aimé cette vidéo sont des jaloux 😀 comment ne pas adorer Irène Grosjean ?

  35. bonjour, mille millions de merci Irène, ou trouver facilement des légumes non irradié vu que tout produit de magasin y passe (ps je vis en ville) problématique de beaucoup de citadin.

  36. I wish you did not eat while talking, seriously why? it was such a pain to complete the video. Except that I love the video.

  37. Les produits laitiers pasteurisé sont responsables. Il n'y a pas de soucis avec le lait cru au contraire. Plein de personne on guéri en buvant du lait cru. le sel est problème et crée une mauvaise balance minérale comme le sucre raffiné.

  38. C'est bien,mais,cru? Ce n'est pas tout le monde qui est capable de digérer des mets crus,généralement trop l'ours pour l'estomac….
