Knowledge ‘is’ power and the first steps of becoming Fit is changing your thoughts on eating, health and wellness. As you increase your mind power, your body will follow. Being “Fit” is a beautiful lifestyle! As I began to open my eyes and listen to my innerself about what was ‘best’ for ‘me’ and my family, natural healing books, vegetarian and vegan cook books, and organic health online resources were must-haves on my to-do list and changed my life.

Here are a few movies and sites to visit! Most of these are what I call “Edu-mentaries” (documentaries that educate!) are free to watch online, others you can view on Netflix or Amazon Instant Movies! Trust me, they are worth the few dollars and will change your perspective on health, eating, the food industry and controlling your own longevity. I will update this page to include short synopsis of these documentaries and projects. There are so many more and I have a huge list, Ive compiled over the years on facebook and my other websites that I plan to include!

The Gerson Miracle examines many of the elements of the Gerson Therapy, explaining why we are so ill and how we have in our grasp the power to recover our health without expensive, toxic or mutilating treatments, using the restorative forces of our own immune systems.
