We read a lot of books about health in general and raw foods in particular. And although we read so many books, we still go our own way, we don’t follow instructions from anybody but from our bodies. But of course it can be very helpful to read about the experiences of others, not only in regard to raw food, but also concerning healthy living habits and the occupation with spirituality and the Self. And so we would like to recommend some books that we find very helpful for the raw food and spiritual journey.
Dr. Douglas Graham – The 80/10/10 Diet
This book details the benefits of a low fat raw vegan diet and explains very conclusively why this diet is the only adequate diet for humans. Dr. Graham is a longterm raw foodist and athlete.
Robert Morse – The Detox Miracle Sourcebook
A very inspiring book about the thorough detoxification and regeneration of the body with raw foods and herbs.
Helmut Wandmaker – Willst du gesund sein? Vergiss den Kochtopf!
The definite book on raw foods in the German-speaking area. Based on the principles of the Natural Hygiene Movement.
As far as we know this book is unfortunately not translated to English.
Franz Konz – Der große Gesundheits-Konz
In this profoundly researched tome, Franz Konz explains in a provocative but conclusive manner the major advantages of a raw food lifestyle as the only “cure” for “diseases”. He emphasizes the importance of wild greens for health and longevity.
We’re afraid this book isn’t available in English either.
Arnold Ehret’s Mucusless Diet Healing System
In this book the basics of the Natural Hygiene system are explained and the mucolytic ability of raw foods is pointed out.

The only yogi we heard of so far, who emphasizes the raw vegan diet as the natural food for humans.

In his books he explains the Vedic texts profoundly and intelligibly and discusses major topics such as the political, economical and religious grievances in today’s world. Highly recommendable for everybody who is seeking the highest truth.
