Hi, I'm michelle and I’m from Minnesota, the cold state, and when I first heard about this program it was last April and I had a girlfriend who went through the program and I saw all that energy she came back with and that is really what I wanted.. I was kind of lost, just going through life, just going through the motions of life and not living the my week when on emotions were all over the map things are coming out that I held in for many many years but what I got out on this program was I […]
The Raw Food Institute is an amazing healing experience. Whether you need to lose weight or have a serious health challenge such as cancer, this is the place to go and heal. You will be forever changed by the education you will receive and you will leave with the tools to be able to take control of your health. The time I spent with Lisa Wilson gave me the knowledge to be able to heal my body from breast cancer without the use of conventional treatments. I strongly encourage you to make the investment in your health and attend the raw food institute.

RFI was the best thing I ever did for myself. After studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition I really thought I knew how to be healthy and how to teach others to do the same. But what I learned at RFI blew all my many years of nutritive education out of the water. It changed the way my family eats, the way I raise my kids and the way I help others to find their optimal health as well. I believe it to be such a pivotal and influential point in my life that I’ve encouraged everyone I truly care about to commit to the week away and learn to properly prevent disease and heal themselves for the rest of their life. It’s an unbelievably eye-opening experience!”

In 2008 I was diagnosed with a recurrence and found myself in Stage IV Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma! Determined to go a natural educated path an alkaline lifestyle became paramount. Along with alkaline water, alkaline foods were a must. Thank goodness my journey led me to Lisa Wilson and the Raw Food Institute. I enrolled in the 7 Day Immersion and Educator programs in October 2011 and have never looked back. I juice every day and follow a mostly raw diet. Today I am 23 pounds lighter and wearing a size 2/4!! Best thing was that the weight loss was actually a surprise and not my main goal. Getting healthy and living a long life was at the top of my heart. Working with Lisa and the Raw Food Institute has educated and supported me, so today I know what to do and do it with the confidence that I am in control.

“When the student is ready the teacher will appear” and I am grateful that the journey to regain my health led me to Lisa, and the Raw Food Institute. My 7 day raw food detox can only be described as a remarkable experience. Yes the weight loss is a great bonus, but the real treasure for me was the mental clarity, feeling of lightness, and radiance that was physically noticeable after the 7 days. Dealing with a health crisis can be scary, and the most valuable lesson I learned here at the RFI, is that your body has amazing powers to heal itself when given the chance. Lisa Wilson is a beautiful, intelligent and highly motivated woman on a mission to help heal all who come her way.
