"My first two months of Awakening Health put me on a path of healing that was anchored in daily lifestyle practices. My mind calmed down, as I changed my diet to include healing foods I learned to cook. I lost 10 pounds with no effort, and began to trust that taking care of my physical body would have great benefits over time. In this case, "trust" was just as important as the recipes given in each class. The dietary recommendations were not given blindly, but in the context of an ancient science that explained how and why human beings prosper when doing certain things, and suffer more when they go against some basic principles of health and well-being. It sounds pretty logical, but, in fact, the teachings healed a place in my heart, while they reached my rational mind, too."
