In my new video “High Fruit? Low Fruit? Or…?,” I share an insight regarding the latest Internet health debates on sweet fruit intake, high sugar/low sugar, raw food, wild food, and indigenous-style eating. I have found that you can have your ultra healthful cake and eat it too…with a little-known clever food preparation.

All ancient and modern cultures have fermented foods. They take sugar-containing foods (some foods that are  edible raw/unfermented and foods that are not truly edible until fermentation) and subject them to a fermentation process (wines, kefirs, yogurts, cheeses, beers, sauerkrauts, sourdough bread, etc.) to create a NEW food. This new food – or ferment – has gone through a biological medium (usually a symbiotic colony of lactobacilli (good bacteria) and yeasts (good fungi) that eats up the sugar and turns it into more probiotic bacteria, amino acids, B vitamins, and a huge amount of co-factor nutrients that do wonders for our health.

This is sprouted oats blended with kefir grains and spring water. This will ferment to create the base of a raw sourdough bread.

A ferment typically takes 36 hours to many months to finish depending on the ferment and thus it can do what our own intestines (which are also rich in good bacteria and yeasts) cannot because our digestive process should be 24 hours or less. For the hardcore raw food simplicity eaters who think that we can skip ferments, this is a big concept to accept.

We must also accept the fact that most agricultural food (from the farm and the garden) has undergone a multi-generational genetic change through selective breeding based on farmer’s preference, which typically makes a food bigger (less nutrient dense), sweeter (too much sugar than we need) and less bitter (not enough medicines, which act to nourish our body’s immune system, endocrine system, nervous system, etc.). On the flip side, we must also accept that a lot of wild

Master Cleanse Kefir from the book "Superfood Beauty Elixirs." (http://SuperfoodBeautyElixirs.com) Unlike the typical master cleanse lemonade which is loaded with maple sugar, this ultra-low-glycemic version is rich in coconut kefir's probiotics, B vitamins, amino acids and many co-factor nutrients.

food is often very small, not pleasantly sweet, and too high in bitters (too many alkloids can be toxic to consume strait).

Interestingly, fermentation can be a solution to rendering BOTH the agricultural foods and the highly medicinal wild foods into a more ideal food for us humans to consume: a ferment.

For example, agricultural fruits have too much sugar for most people to handle without spiking blood sugar. However, if we ferment fruits in a controlled manner we end up with a low-sugar beverage that is even more nutritious than the fruit itself. We also can take highly medicinal food and let a ferment break down some of the harsh alkaloids. Wild cruciferous (and to some extent domesticated cruciferous too like the common cabbages) have goitrogens (thyroid function suppressors), but upon fermenting them into a sauerkraut the goitrogens are broken down. The phytates (anti-nutrients that block our absorption of certain nutrients) in seeds can be broken down through sprouting (which is similar to fermentation in that you are activating an enzymatic process via soaking seeds in water) and fermenting when making seed mylk kefirs/yogurts.

Most fermented products available at your local health food store are NOT organic and are often adulterated with extra cane sugar and preservatives. Or in the case of many store-bought kombuchas,

the kombucha ferment is just not DONE yet, and thus a lot of sugar still remains to be eaten and turned into other nutrients. Organic unpasteurized sauerkrauts are easy to find, but all the other ferments are few and far between: raw kefirs, organic pure meads and ciders, organic pure vinegars (other than apple cider vinegar)…these varieties of ferments are not conveniently available for us high-quality seekers yet. Thus I hope my article and video inspire you to start making your own from scratch so that you can have a variety of ferments to add into your regimen. Do some research online and start making your own kefirs and other ferments in your own kitchen.

Lyrics:

CB: Yo, deep from the heart of Amazon herbalism
An ally at large for folks who like the cures in ‘em
This buddy of mine, can you guess who he is?
If I told you he’s the highest whole food antioxidant?
Either you stumped or you know
Based on the title of this show.
You best not be pronouncing it COCOA.

Please say hello to my little friend,
Purple beans to send from the Amaz”a”n,
Prevents bulldozing the rainforest to raise chemical cows
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!

CHORUS:
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for…

Aumm and the now power of now is how I first got into this:
Holistic living mindin’ my own business,
But in 2003 I got into raw food.
Turned 18 then, been vital since adulthood.
In 2004 I couldn’t ask for more:
Did the green powders, the nuts, seeds and sprouters.

I snuck some pieces of roasted sugarized
Chocolate, but I knew the lies, I was a doubter
‘till the day my superfood goodies order arrived
I gave myself the first dibs,
A crunch, a chew, I was feeling alive
As I experienced my first raw cacao nibs!

Raw chocolate a mineral supplement,
Highest source of magnesium, chromium, and so much more
A hero reverses the worlds mineral deficiencies
Scientific facts prove shamanistic folklore

By 2006 raw cacao powder and butter,
Came on the market to near from far
I co-created with YogiSuzi, my friend of another mother
The infamous superfoodized WildBar

Deputy Commissioner for the FDA, Michael Taylor, regarding cacao what do you have to say?

MT: I think I don’t like it at alls,
Haven’t patented or genetically modified it’s chromosomes,
But serve it with estrogenic cow milk and sugar, and I’ll give it a go.

CB: I think you’re a bigger deception than running heal-toe.

MT: Your niche of foodies need to really move on, you know
And try the ingredients that get my stamp of approval.

CB: No thanks Mike I make difference choices now,
I choose wild foods and superfoods like maca and cacao

Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for…

Now I know what you might be thinking.
Is this guy coo coo for cacao poofs?
Doesn’t he know that cacao is to theobromine as to hard liquor is to proof.
An addictive intoxicant, unnatural chemical dependency,
Surely he must be in denial of this superfood fallacy
Rest assured I’m aware of the debate
But in love and in my rational
There ain’t no room for cacao bean hate
In fact pass me some of that Arriba national.

You see, in the wild, all food has medicine in it,
These original foods have alkaloids and bitter nutrients.
They are good for our receptor sites at the right doses
I’m not saying drink liquid cacao from high pressure hoses.
Use cacao as an ingredient, a recipe addition that has buttery bitters
Then balance it with plenty of creamies, herbs and sweeteners.
You’ve just stacked the odds in your favor,
Cacao, the MAOI-like neuro-potentiator,
Please save me more for later

Mike, for ships and cosmic giggles, I give you the floor.

MT: Thanks Bates. Ideally terrorists like you wouldn’t be here anymore
You’de be in FEMA’s collateral 90%.

CB: Whoa, don’t haise me bro, my raps getting’ a dent.
This is a cacao party with a positivity and an afterglow

MT: I know, but only when allowed by bill S-510.

CB: That’s been called the food fascism bill
Threatening my ability to make superfood American pies on my window sill,

MT: Bates I got a new chorus for you:

Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops

Changing our name on the television
Hiding the truth again and again
Psychopathic rulers oppress citizens
We make the orders for all the governments

Parasites stuck in our DNA
Totalitarian tiptoe is our way
A war on your mind, a war on your brain
Don’t think hard, remain innocent

Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops

Bates its time we took you out
Gonna silence you so you cannot shout!

CB: Not afraid of you and I will not pout
I got a secret weapon just open your mouth….

MT: Oh my freaking cacao goddess I feel good I think I’ll go on a hike.

CB: Holy cacao, we’re gonna let you go Mike,
For an outrageous impression, please Subscribe, Comment and Like
But seriously only if you do Like, use your mind, your discernment,
These days its more challenging to know who’s got the clearest vision,
Use this mode of communication while you can, the world wide Internet
Keep discussing, ask who can entertain the many ways of making decisions
Turn off your television.
give your throat a break of shoving down corporatism.

Go outside and touch the Earth, son,
Get some naked rays of sun,
You are the one, hon’, the superhero with the paradise dreams,
Keep your insides clean, get the natural medicine in.

Together we seek to love, experience and know
Tune in next time to the Rappin’ Irresistible Health Show!

(Chorus during credits)

Have you noticed the attention to detail in raw food, superfood, and drinking water lately? We are in a health journey now where we are putting together the more refined pieces of our nutritional protocol and in the way we live with the Earth.

It is no longer about “I eat healthy,” “I workout on the weekends,” “I recycle,” or “I donate to charities” anymore. There is a much deeper call now, one that demands a paradise level of health, and a Utopian connection with what each of our personal missions and visions for ourselves and the world are.

I have noticed that my attention to detail in quality about the raw foods, superfoods, and water that I drink has each year become more refined, so much so that I wonder how I ever managed before, given what I now understand about both the amazing (and fun!) aspects in food and water quality and about the hidden abominations in quality of the food, water and environment we eat, drink and live in.

When I first became extremely interested in truly healthy food (and “went raw”) years ago, I had my fair share of rancid walnuts in the bulk section of natural food stores, superfoods that had fillers in them, and I drank tap water. I thought I was so pure, but I was falling for many of the booby traps.

One of the most important evolutions I had was that I updated to poorly filtered tap water. I thought I was on the cutting edge by doing that. Then, with some updated knowledge, I upgraded to aquifer water and spring water bottled in plastic which was definitely a step up. And now finally I only drink fresh spring water bottled in glass.

I have since even more recently discovered that many springs out there are actually holes dug into the Earth next to naturally occurring springs, and thus they are an aquifer water, which is like a cross between a natural spring and a human-made well. Compared to a wildly-flowing spring, aquifer water seems to lack a certain amount of magic and can sometimes contain bad calcium (lime).

Most bottled “spring” water is actually bottled aquifer water. They might taste good to your average consumer, but if you have stumbled onto my blog you might have questioned the actual healthfulness of shelf-sitting, light-and-heat-exposed bottled spring water. (Just so you know, there is a unique brand of true unprocessed spring water that still has magic in it: RawLivingWater.com)

Can I find natural, cold drinking springs near my home?

There are many naturally occuring springs where I live, on Mt. Tamalpais. A few gush right out of rock – perfect for filling up a glass jug – and many trickle out of dirt and are not potable. Most of the springs are a brief hike away. The most important water sources for us at this time are the ones alongside a road near one’s home (or for the few: the one’s on your or someone’s property, feeding into the house). This way you can fill 20-40 gallons or more at once into your car, so as to only have to fill up a couple times per month (I fill up once per week), and of course to have the leverage of your vehicle.

Red Rock Beach Spring with some of my corked glass jugs

There are three springs on the road that I am aware of in my county, Marin, which is just north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge. I enjoy filling up from just one of these springs every week: Red Rock Beach spring. It is not a true ancient spring as it is actually a horizontal hole drilled into the cliff side to relieve erosion pressure on the cliff next to the one flowing natural spring beside it. The “spring” is therefore almost an aquifer water, but, fortunately, there are many naturally occurring trickle springs right next to it, so in this unique case the water is actually excellent, and low tds (about 70 ppm, no “minerally” hardness like that of your average water well.)

The issue with this spring is that, in a Utopian society, we would have “boxed” this spring a long time ago. The water gushes at a few gallons per minute out of clean rock, so it does not have to be boxed, but it would be so much nicer, as I would no longer need to bring my own copper pipe to channel water from the fissure, or “eye” of the spring, to my jugs.

What is boxing a spring anyways?

Boxing a spring implies correctly placing a stone or concrete wall in front of or just downhill from the spring, sanitarily trapping all the water behind the wall so that it all flows out one pipe cemented through the wall. Correctly done, it directs the water right into a fill up zone (a water fountain) thus increasing the flow rate into your bottle (so that you don’t have to spend all day at the spring filling from a trickle spring – not that there is anything wrong with that), keeps away erosion, helps keep away rodents from contaminating the water, and – my favorite – if the box is made with some nice craftmanship, it looks like and becomes a beautiful fountain, the perfect centerpiece for any town or park.

There is a second spring in our county – one on the road – that was extremely popular prior to the 1980s when at some point it was privately left to neglect (or purposely closed down.) All over the world, springs that become popular get shut down, just as in this example near New York City: Longislandpress.com/2010/06/17/residents-fight-to-keep-spring-in-cold-spring-harbor.

Neglected Fountain on the Fairfax-Bolinas Road, Mt. Tamalpais

The third spring-on-the-road that I am most interested in, has been abandoned. (See my video below for footage of me at this spring.) This spring was boxed but has been (purposely) neglected until moss covers the fountain; the box trap has eroded and filled with sediment, letting bugs and slugs contaminate the trapped still-flowing-after-thousands-of-years water. The actual spring water is still perfect, but impossible to drink from sanitarily do to the erosion, partially caused by the road.

Beautiful craftmanship, covered over by time

I am currently searching for all the historic knowledge on this drinking spring, so that I can find the logistics for restoring it. As you can see from the pictures, this spring has two parts: the fountain and the box. The fountain is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship now covered in moss. You can see that beside the main fountain pipe are two concrete turtles who have small copper pipes coming out of their mouths. If this fountain were successfully connected back to the box, the fountain would have 3 spouts of water coming out all at the convenience of a large car pullout, under the canopy of redwood trees. What a vision! How good it will feel when we restore this spring. And, to restore other abandoned springs just like it all around the world!

Broken down spring box

This spring’s box is uphill from the once-piped-to fountain, as the perfect place for the box (needs to be near the eye of the spring) is different from the perfect place for the fountain (situated closer to the car pullout). The box is eroded, full of sediment and dead slugs. It needs to be completely redone. It is flowing though over two gallons a minute. If officially approved and contracted, this spring could be restored very quickly by specialists.

With the exception of FindASpring.com, your local spring information is often NOT a Google search away. We get to ask the locals instead, people who have been around for a while, especially the local 50 years of age or elder folks, will be key in giving you clues so that you can be the mystery unveiler on the past and present of springs in your neighborhood. Start asking. Chances are you will find that your neighborhood has lots of micro climates, landscapes, hills, mountains, forests, summits and valleys where springs dwell.

Most creeks have a spring head that fuel them where water comes from out of the Earth pristine, not just from topical rainfall. Take an off-trail hike up a creek and see what’s up there. Just note that if you find a spring that is a trickle spring coming out of mud, I don’t recommend drinking from it as it may contain rodent fecal matter (water born disease.) But if you find a spring coming right out of rock, and the spring has no development above it, then its a good chance the water is perfect right out of the ground. Visit the videos on FindASpring.com on ways to test spring water for its drinking quality.


You may find springs that were once boxed but have been abandoned. The non-profit nature of springs combined with municipal profit, control, and “liability issues” makes it so that springs get legally halted so that the local people are forced to drink for-profit toxic, denatured municipal tap water. As well, you may find wild springs that are just asking to be boxed into an awesome fountain, but the powers that be combined with the local population’s lack of awareness about the cruciality of spring water halts the quick progress for such a vision!

Here is why this is a public service announcement: I am asking you to spread the word on how to take back our birthright of having gushing, convenient and pristine springs always nearby.

There are three public health hazards:

1. Tap water is just about always contaminated with chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals and anti-metallic substances, lime and nano-bacteria. Even when filtered, the water isn’t living via its crystal structure, and thus a filtered water drinker is filtering over 70% of their bodily consciousness, if you know what I mean. Start where you are at, and step by step make audacious changes for the better.

2. Whenever I am filling up at my spring and someone comes by to ask what I am doing, I always say excitedly that I am drinking the best water ever! They then proceed to fill their small bottle just downhill from the spring where the water might be contaminated with sediment or parasites. I quickly tell them to go to the spring’s fissure. We must spread the word and educate people on the value of drinking water that is always bottled inches from the spring head.

Gushing out of rock! Fern Creek Spring (Fed the SF Bay Area people and ports for decades!)

3. We get to gather together and influence the people and the officials to approve the boxing and restoring of every public area’s viable springs. Certain laws or watershed profit and control obligations must be changed by popular demand and Utopian logic so that all springs will be optimized. “For the people, by the people…”

These are the first three steps. BONUS Step four is to box springs with water enhancing technologies. One way to both eliminate sediment from getting into the spring water fountain pipe or fissure, as well as to concentrate the healthful monoatomic minerals in spring water, is to create a vortexing unit within the spring box and the water outlet. This technology can be reviewed on www.subtleenergies.com. This is a tall order for now and can be done in the near future after we just get the basic spring boxes and fountains installed everywhere.

I know I create the changes I want to see for myself and the for the world around me with what I do as a habit. A habit is what counts. So please, go out and spread the word on the real clean water issue. As more people respect, appreciate, hold sacred and demand the best springs ever, spring restorations will come of it. May this message have served you and given what you needed to know to take the next step to better and better uncompromised health!

Colon hydrotherapy is one of the most important practices to add in on your health journey, and we do ours with a special superfood touch. We make ours so delightful, that if you are already seeing a colon hydro-therapist for colonics, you may wish to stay home now and do our version of a deep cleansing “superfood” enema. Enemas are the process of oiling up your behind, laying in the bathtub in preferably a warm comfortable candle-lit bathroom, gently inserting into your rectum a tube that is attached to a bag or crock of warm water, and letting gravity slowly and gently fill up and drain your colon several times until your whole colon has been cleaned of all matter.

Clean, serene, warm, ideal setup for an enema

In this process, two things are accomplished. First is that with every colonic, you have a chance at knocking out any intestinal plaque that might be gummed up in the folds of your colon. The exit of this most toxic debris that was continuously poisoning your body for who knows how long, is absolutely key to restoring the integrity of your body’s health. Intestinal plaque tends to be something along the lines of 10 year old pizza putrefying with heavy metals and parasites. These pockets of waste never should have been there in the first place, but because of a past of eating aberrant foods, having a stressful lifestyle and getting constipated, weird things can happen to your organs.

The second huge benefit of a deep enema is that it makes room in your intestines for an accelerated dump of waste from all the cells of your body, speeding up both short term and long term healing. If you are already healthy, but feeling a bit sluggish one day, try doing an enema our way and it can turn your energy around and give you that “edge” again as a short term healing. If you have a small or big pooch in your belly, do an enema today as part of your long term goal to flatten your abdomen and attain excellent digestive and metabolic health.

How we do enemas at our house: Instead of using a one gallon or smaller enema bag, use a 2 or more gallon jug or crock with a spigot. Slide the hose off your current enema bag and stretch it over the spigot. If it slides off a tapered spigot, wrap one or two rubber bands around the connection to keep it on, being careful not to pinch the hose. Fill your enema container up almost all the way with spring water. Prepare a pot of tonic herbs tea (Click here for a great recipe from my girlfriend The Edible Goddess’s blog). Fill the pot of herbs up with some of the enema container water with the hose. Brew until it begins to boil, then strain the tea into the container. If your tea pot is small, fill it up with the container water again and rebrew. Repeat the process several times if need be until the container water is quite warm and deeply tea colored. Add in MSM only or add in shilajit and/or fulvic acid. We are currently avoiding combining MSM with high mono-atomic mineral containing foods like shilajit to avoid the potential sulfuric reactivity of the combination. Also its an excellent idea to add in coconut water kefir, or probiotic powders of your choice (with MSM or shilajit is great.) You can also add organic coffee for great liver cleansing effects and zeolites for their heavy metal, viral and volatile organic compound pulling effects. Bring your enema container into the bathroom and place at least 3 feet above the floor on a stable counter, stool or table so that the hose can reach well into the bathtub or shower stall.

Crock full of enema superfood spring water

Warm up the bathtub or shower stall by blasting some hot filtered showered water. We also use a space heater blasting in the direction of the bathtub, keeping it away from any water, and leave it on during the 30-45 minute enema experience. Lay a towel down in the tub for your back and some folded towels for your head and neck. We prefer enemas laying on our back with our legs up, rather than face down on all fours. Light some scented organic beeswax candles and play some music or inspirational audio. Take your pants off, put coconut oil or any organic raw oils around and in your bum and all over the enema hose insert nozzle. Stir the enema container one final time to make sure no mineral-rich sediment is stuck on the bottom.

Lay down and slowly let the water fill you up until gentle tension (no extreme pressure holding, be gentle with your intestines), then let the water go out down the drain. Ideally you take your time with this and eventually get the water to go up your descending colon, across your transverse colon, and down your ascending colon towards your cecum where your small intestines dump into your colon. This means that quite a bit of poops and not-quite-fully digested food particles will have exited you many times. You might not be able to go this deep every time, so do a series of enemas (e.g. an enema every other day for 2 weeks) so that you are more likely to tone and cleanse your ascending colon at least some of the times.

Doing an enama our way eliminates the fears associated with enemas. We boost the probiotic content of the gut with the coconut water kefir amendment, instead of stripping the colons Bifidus-dominant colony. We keep the experience in the bathroom warm and nurturing so that you finish feeling more comfortable than ever, rather than cold or invaded. We make your body feel nourished with the uptake of the water amendments (tonic teas, shilajit, fulvic acid, etc.) so that you finish fairly balanced out, instead of deprived or dizzy. However, every enema is different and just know that the discomforts of purification will pass. Hydrate well after an enema, and then consume something light and nourishing, preferably full of your favorite superfoods.

My disclaimer on enemas: Please take responsibility for your own health and health protocol. Please seek the advice of a professional colon hydrotherapist before embarking on your own enema project. Do your first enema/colonic with a colon hydrotherapist before taking the leap to do it yourself. Do not let the water fill your colon forcefully. Be very gentle with yourself and take your time.

Imagine this. You are a superfoodist far away from home and your bag of goodies runs out, your water jugs break, and the local food scene is NO help. Low in your usual vital energy you try to fast! But then, far away from home, you bog down and eat some starchy non-superfood meal with crappy water, your blood sugar spikes, your skin breaks out, you feel helpless and….

You wake up from the nightmare and decide to become FULLY prepared.

If a superfoodist like yourself is less than excellently prepared with food and drink abundance while traveling in every condition, then peace of mind can only go so far. We are what we eat, so let’s remain the best ever when we are on the go and only get healthier everyday with no stress. The prepared and well-stocked superfoodist at home becomes an elite traveler in this blog post.

There are a few travel factors and every destination will have a particular permutation which will help you decide what to bring.

~By car or by plane?
~Going by yourself or with others?
~Traveling to hardly-raw friendly or mostly raw-friendly scene?
~Spring water nearby or not?
~Refrigeration on location or not?
~Kitchen for you or not?

Last summer, I went to the one week Enlightenned Warrior Training Camp in 100*F Fresno, CA. No person or situation was going to cater to me. All I had was my car. I knew a raw foodist couple who went to the camp the year before who ended up drinking tap water and eating conventional produce and got sick! Conditions would be rough…if I wasn’t fully prepared, which I was 😉 and had the best time of my life!

Thus I brought many gallons of spring water, each bottle wrapped in blankets to avoid breakage in my trunk. I only brought prepared non-perishable foods, as I had no time to prepare, no refrigeration, no camp food to add. How did I have a great balance of savory and sweet superfood lifestyle complete meals and snacks during the intensity of a five-day intensive camp? How did I eat like a king with enough to share?! Stay tuned for detailed instructions in part 2…
