Apr 26, 2008
Hi, everyone, this is Kevin Gianni, and I'd like to welcome you to a very special Raw Summit Teleseminar, which can be found online at http://www.rawsummitarchives.com. The purpose of the Raw Summit is to pass along cutting edge information about raw and living food technologies for you to reach optimal health, wellness, and success. Today, I have a special guest who has been a 100% raw for over 7 years and is the author of Raw Spirit, a book on transitioning and thriving with the raw food lifestyle. So Matt Monarch, I want to welcome you to the Raw Summit. Today he will be sharing with us information on vegetable juices, enzymes, and meditation.

Raw Summit Excerpt with Matt Monarch, a raw food specialist and author of Raw Spirit.

Kevin: Let's talk a little bit about just yourself now. What do you eat on a daily basis?

Matt: Sure. I've always only eaten two meals a day. When I was on a standard American diet I did more than that. But I'm also into vegetable juicing. I do a couple of 16-ounce green juices a day.

Kevin: Okay. What's in those?

Matt: I do a variety of different juices everyday because each vegetable has a different composition of minerals and nutrients. It's a way to get vitamins and minerals in the most absorbable form to the
body. One that tastes really good is carrot juice on my greens to make it taste better. I like to juice Romaine lettuce with carrot and other things because Romaine lettuce, literally tastes like chocolate milk especially if you add some spinach to make it a little bit creamy.

Kevin: Really?

Matt: Yes. And spinach is one of the best things I feel anybody can juice. I try to get some of it on me everyday.

Kevin: What other sort of things besides eating these awesome foods everyday do you do to stay in an awesome mindset?

Matt: Okay. Enzymes are big thing in the raw food movement. It's great to help us in the assistance of digesting your food, but I have these therapeutic enzymes. They're Dr. Fred Bisci's Therapeutic
Enzymes that are ridiculously powerful.

Kevin: Okay.

Matt: They have the potential to dissolve cancers and tumors. Amazing things I've seen happen with these things, and what I do is I take them on an empty stomach almost three times a day sometimes.

Kevin: Okay.

Matt: And let me explain the underlying reason of all these. There are two types of enzymes that are in our body. There are metabolic enzymes and there are digestive enzymes. Metabolic enzymes, we supposedly have a certain reserve of them, and they're used in every process of our body - breathing, walking, everything, and the most important thing is they actually repair damage done to the body! They actually repair damage done to the body! It takes a few metabolic enzymes to convert into a digestive enzyme. So when you take it with food, you're conserving your metabolic enzymes because you don't want to convert them into digestive enzymes and you'll live a longer life.

When you take it on an empty stomach, these enzymes go straight into the metabolic functions of your body repairing damages done to your body. It's amazing what they do.

Kevin: What else do you do as well with these enzymes? I know you talked about meditation in your book.

Matt: Yes. I feel meditation is one of the most important things for spiritual growth.

Kevin: Okay. Why?

Matt: Okay, when I became 100% raw and all these things were happening to me, I went and started reading books on spirituality and actually came across Stephen Arlin's book, Raw Power. As I was meditating, I started to notice something in my system. It was like a pain, like misery. So, I wanted to figure out what's going on here, so I decided to meditate on it. Meditation is literally just putting your awareness, your attention, on a single point. And so what I started to do was to meditate and put my attention to that 100%, and I began to notice that whenever I would do that, this misery would end up in my stomach area, otherwise known as the solar plexus in a sense. And I noticed that as I'd stirred to these energies, they would start to dissipate in a sense and they would leave.

I mean it's not that cut and dried. Just the other day, I was screaming at the top of my lungs in my car, screaming at people to get out of my way.

Kevin: Got you. So clearly, I mean what are some of the changes that you experienced specific?

Matt: Just a more calm nature, not so fanatical about everything, more loving, more supportive to other people, more open.

Kevin: That's great! More loving. It's awesome! Do you do that now everyday, or do you do it when you feel like you need it when you meditate now?

Matt: Sometimes I'm on, sometimes I'm off. It's not an easy thing to do sometimes. Sometimes it's really easy. To be honest with you, the cleaner I am and the better I eat, the simpler it is.

Kevin: Got you. Do you need any tools, or do you just go and do it yourself?

Matt: I pretty much make my meditation technique on whatever the energy is in my system. I always look for negative energies first.

Kevin: Okay.

Matt: Like the misery or just like a not-so-good feeling. Just to get rid of it. After all these dissipate, then you can get into a state of just ultimate bliss and you could start seeing things, if you know what I mean?

Kevin: Yes.

Kevin: Did you ever put your finger on what exactly that misery was?

Matt: A lot of it had to do with family, like from my childhood and other things. I mean to be honest with you, it still comes out every once in a while. But I understand it now and I know how to deal
with it, and I know how to get rid of, it and I don't become it.

Kevin: Got you. What are you planning to do for the future? Where are you moving towards?

Matt: Well, all my energy is focused on this new book that I'm writing. I am really excited about it and while I am doing this, I am traveling the entire world. I'm in Canada right now. I am going to be speaking in UK in the next week and something big is about to happen.
Kevin: Okay.

Matt: I don't know what it is yet. I think within the years, I am going to be creating something. I don't know if it's going to be a retreat center, a location to help people but I see like something like
this will happen. I don't know if it's going to be retreats all over the place, but I have a feeling that we are going to create some sort of center to arrive on that.

Kevin: Have you set an intention on that or is it something that you just kind of vibrating towards with...?

Matt: I am kind of vibrating towards it. It's about to explode. I am kind of like I am waiting, I am waiting for the energy for God to just download on me. It's just a Matter of time but I feel it coming.

Kevin: I got you. I think it's important to talk about the, you are doing inside the Raw Community because I think there are a lot of people out there who want to share their message and the things that
they have done to get to where they are. Generally, I find that most people in the Raw Community want to help other people. So, I think what's your doing is fantastic. What can you say to some of those
people who haven't put a stake in the ground and started to really promote this Raw Lifestyle like you have. What are some of the things that they can do to approach getting known and influencing a lot of

Matt: Okay. The truth of the matter is do they truly want to do it? Because if they truly want to do it, they can do it. It's all a matter of just doing it. When I became 100% Raw, here I am in New York City living, working in the city. I just quit my job. I quit everything. I didn't have anything, I didn't have any money. So, here I am. I went to the biggest raw food festival of the year. I started working for a company called discountjuicers.com. I've learned a lot. Then I just started doing my own thing. I
created my own website and I just kept going and going.

Kevin: It sounds like whatever it takes kind of attitude?

Matt: Yes, yes, just do it. You could do it whenever you want and it just happens automatically. I mean you got to put effort into it. You can have that - you got to make a change.
