The Raw Food Institute changed my life! I walked away feeling amazing not only physically, but emotionally and mentally as well. My life is so much more rich because of all the information, insight, and relationships I gained while there. It is the best investment I ever made in myself and my family! I guarantee you will not regret the investment either!Gina Ledwith
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.Carol Christoforatos
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!”Christi Flynn
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.Elaine Gibson
“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.Ian Scott
I am thankful every day that I discovered RFI and Lisa Wilson. Literally, she saved my life and my professional life as an airline pilot. The keys to Type II Diabetes management are a raw food protocol, regular exercise, eliminate caffeine and alcohol, and REM sleep. I rarely set an alarm clock to be certain I’m maximizing my rejuvenation. It really works! I was able to get my A1c from 12.6 to 7.4 in 6 weeks. There is no drug on the planet that can do that. Blessings.Peter Gauthier
The 7-day raw detox program was amazing! My energy level was tremendous and it proved to me that the power food can change our lives! I loved learning about sprouts, wheat grass and enjoying all the amazing food. Lisa is authentic, caring and so knowledgeable! I’m recommending it to all my friends!Tracey Osbourne Miller
