WHAT IF I TOLD YOU YOUR WHOLE LIFE COULD CHANGE?

raw_food_institute

Hello everyone!

I'm Elliott Fiedler and this is my "before" and "after" photo of how the Raw Food Insitute has changed my life. I met Lisa Wilson several years ago when I attended one of her nutrition classes. I was blown away by what I heard and in that moment something inside me knew I needed to learn more.


You see at that time, I was in pretty poor shape. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and a recent heart attack followed by quadruple bypass surgery. I was uncomfortably overweight and nothing green had passed  my lips for decades (literally). Those early classes were a turning point for me and I had many real breakthroughs ... But wait, it gets much, much better than that!


When Lisa launched The Raw Food Institute, I knew it was time to get even more serious about my health. So I enrolled in the first Raw Food Institute class at NIHA in January of 2011. To say that it was a game changer does not even come close to describing that week for me....

IT CHANGED VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE!

Listen, when you are forced to face the music (to say nothing of your "maker") with a quadruple bypass operation, things NEED to change. It is not even an option to deny or delay what you know is absolutely essential to your survival and quality of life.


Honestly, articulating how many ways The Raw Food Institute changed my life is a serious challenge for me. An easier  question might be: "WHAT DIDN'T CHANGE?"

So here are a few of the changes that I can testify to:

First, of course, would be the food. I seriously love being a "raw foodie."  It gets me going every day and it makes me happy! I love the way that I feel, the way that I think, and the way that  my  body now responds.  I am 66 years old and I feel better than I did 30 years ago.

I've also met some of the dearest and most supportive friends of my life. Among other things, we grow wheat grass together, we swap recipes, and we share raw meals.

The real question is.... "WHERE WOULD MY LIFE BE IF I HAD NOT FOUND THE RAW FOOD INSTITUTE?"

There is no question that my entire life has been turned around and I am a completely different person because of that one week investment of  my time in myself.

Here are a few "before" and "after" RESULTS  from my RFI experience:

Apply Now for the Elliot Fiedler Scholarship

It is because of this that I want to pass this amazing experience along and share what I believe can be a life changing for you as well. Therefore, I decided to make a contribution to The Raw Food Institute. Lisa is calling it the "Elliott Fiedler Scholarship" and she has decided to match it!!!! This means that ONE student in the June immersion program will be receiving a $1,400 scholarship. Regular tuition is $2400, so the balance will be just $1000. It is a great honor for me to be able to do this.

Please know that you have an opportunity of a lifetime  ahead of you in one amazing week at The Raw Food Institute.

I WISH YOU THE VERY, VERY, VERY BEST! TO YOUR RADIANT HEALTH!
IT'S A LIFE CHANGER!!!!

With love and blessings,
Elliott Fiedler
