John Kohler and health from raw foods
Who is John Kohler?
John Kohler has become well known today in alternative health circles as an expert on raw food dieting. John became a follower of eating raw foods through necessity. In his early 20s he was seriously ill with the life-threatening disease of spinal meningitis but managed to survive and attributed his successful battle to full health to his diet and higher powers.
John Kohler's doctors told him that he had caught the disease because he had a weakened immune system. It was this information that gave him a clue as to what he needed to do because he realised that he had to build his immune system up.
John Kohler and raw foods
John Kohler is like many others who have found out about the benefits of eating raw food having been forced by necessity in their own lives when they have realised they either find how to live in a healthy way or they actually risk dying. That is how serious the matter has been to them but the adversity they have suffered has been a stepping stone to drive them on to another and much better path in life.
John discovered raw foods as the most healthy way of achieving perfect health and avoiding disease and so he made changes in his lifestyle to follow this pathway. He became really fit and full of energy and with his new-found health came the desire to share his knowledge with other people.
John has helped very many sufferers from various diseases by giving out information on healthy eating by sticking to a raw food diet plan and also by personal life-coaching.
He has become a public speaker on raw foods and health matters and appears in many videos talking about these subjects. He gives advice on what foods really are "raw" ones and about gadgets that are best to use such as types of juicer.
One thing John Kohler has stressed is the importance of getting the freshest and most organic fruit and vegetables as possible. The best way to do this is to grow your own.
John is advising people to make good use of any garden space they have and to grow their own fresh foods. He is a real advocate of urban gardening.

John Kohler and his raw food organic garden
John Kohler doesn't just talk about things but puts what he is advising into practice. In order to get the best quality fruit, vegetables, edible flowers and herbs as possible he has converted his home garden into a place where they can be cultivated.
John has filled his front garden with fruit and vegetables so that in the street he lives his stands out with all the mass of greenery. He grows tomatoes and cucumbers and lettuce, and even the strawberry guava.
Many of his plants are grown in raised beds to keep them warmer and aid in their growth. He grows plants in old wine barrels and puts trellises up so that climbing plants like cucumbers can grow up them.
John uses rock dust to mineralise the compost that he uses and he stresses that we need a full range of natural minerals in our foods and this is why this is important.
Because he doesn't use any harmful pesticides in his garden, John Kohler painstakingly spends time getting rid of pests that attack his plants or he provides workable defenses. He has discovered that slugs and snails do not like copper so he has put this metal as protective strips around some of his crops.
John says that the best way to be able to get edible plant foods is to be able to step outside your own door and pick the fruit and vegetables you have grown yourself. I think he makes a very good point there!
