Through Curt's guidance and expertise I have greatly
expanded my raw food culinary skills. Curt and his sons have a passion for
helping others and I have witnessed their sheer generosity many times. They
have given me the best tips and tools for sustaining my raw food journey and
for that I am truly grateful.
Donna D., Windsor, CT
I thought I knew a lot about
raw, but in this class I learned a lot more. Every class was very
informative and Curt you are extremely knowledgeable. You know your
stuff. I'd come home and talk about what I learned in class and I've
found that my family is more conscience of what they put in and on their
bodies. I especially liked hearing from others in the class how going raw
has cured their weight problems, type 2 diabetes, cancer, etc. It's too
bad medical doctors push medicine rather then finding the root of the

"I changed my diet a
few years ago after finding out that I have celiac disease. This change
in lifestyle improved my health considerably, but I still believed that I
could feel even better, so I decided to try a raw (or living) food
diet. After taking classes with Curt at Raw Food Central, I can't believe
how straightforward it really is to feel more alive and to be
healthier! I have more energy (and who doesn't want more energy), I am
sleeping better and I feel 'clean' on the inside-- this is a feeling
that I love. I have learned so much about what is toxic to my body,
about the food industry in our country, and about how to
truly and very simply nourish my body and prevent sickness. If you
value your health and you want the facts about what it takes to be in
good health, you will most definitely want to take this class. You will
meet people who have changed their health dramatically, have
opportunities to hear life changing stories both on video and from
knowledgeable speakers, and you will get recommendations about books to
read and other sources that will help you to become more educated
regarding your own health. I honor you and I thank you Curt, for your
inspiration and for caring enough about others to share your own story
and wealth of information, and for ultimately leading so many of us to a
more accountable and fulfilling life."

My health was deteriorating before I took these classes and I was on prescription drugs
and a shopping bag of supplements. Now I no longer take any prescription drugs
or supplements. I get everything my body needs from the food that I eat. Before
my blood pressure would reach as high as 178 and I had very low energy. I
suffered with chronic post nasal drip and would catch every cold and bug, also
my eyes always were bothering me. Now I have all kinds of energy and my blood
pressure stays around 98 to 108. I never get sick and my eyes feel great.
People say I look younger.

energy. I have so much positivity and zest for life with zero anxiety. Life
changing and Life saving! Hooray for Raw!
Kathy C., Newington, CT
This course has changed my life. I have not used my stove or microwave in quite
some time - which is a good thing! I have more energy, clarity of mind and very
very regular - YES! I was searching for a way to learn how to be healthier - to
be disease free. This course was an answer to prayer, literally! I feel healthier,
have lost weight and have a very happy colon.
Sharon W., Windsor Locks, CT
Twenty-two years ago I was put on thyroid medication and told it would be a lifelong issue for me. I became curious about raw foods after seeing a Healthpath flyer last fall, but did not even consider that it would help my thyroid. I just wanted to feel better in general. After eating raw, living foods for about two months, I am happy to say that my doctor has taken me off the thyroid medication. My blood pressure has never been better, and after years of struggling with high cholesterol I passed my last test with flying colors. To my added surprise I lost 26 pounds without trying. This course has been an invaluable resource for helping me with my new way of eating, which has made all these amazing changes possible!

I found this course to be great! I have learned so much and the foods are absolutely delicious! One thing, it has enhanced me to be calmer. I don't let things take the better of me. I breathe better, I lost weight, more energy, I feel 100% great
Marla M., Enfield, CT
It was excellent and fun to learn new information and clarify forgotten knowledge. When I eat 100% raw I have more energy and feel happier. I'm finding it easier to eat raw. If I decide to eat some cooked food I usually feel lethargic and my stomach would bother me.
This course is what I have been looking for. I have learned loads of very important information pertaining to eating raw food. I am not quite 100% but that is my goal.
Laurah L., CT
The diet makes you feel cleaner, lighter and more energized. It's a journey the I plan to continue for a more healthful life.
Tim G., Wethersfield, CT
I feel much better and satisfied by the raw dishes that we have made. The meals we made were not hard to make and were very delicious. I found that if you didn't follow the directions exactly, the meals still came out great. The course teaches you principles that allow you to experiment or modify (or even simplify) the recipes and still get a good meal.
Fran P., Coventry, CT
An eye opening experience, the benefits by far is how I'm feeling when eating raw. I enjoyed the class very much and grateful to have found you. I'm looking forward to a healthy future - done very simply.

I have experienced many benefits from this course. I feel more alive now. I have more energy and focus. My blood sugar levels went down 20 points after incorporating more raw food into my diet. I feel hopeful about my future and know that I can control the health of my body by the foods I consume. a raw plant based diet is the ideal diet and will always include it in my diet. Thank you for your guidance and support - May God you and your family.
