Matt Monarch Talks About Raw Food Diet and Enzymes

Kevin Gianni Interviews Matt Monarch

Matt MonarchIn this interview with Kevin, Matt Monarch shares his knowledge on diets, diseases and enzymes. Matt Monarch has been living a raw food lifestyle for more than nine years now. He is the author of Raw Spirit and Raw Success.

Kevin: Let's talk about what you said about the whole what you leave out of the diet…

Matt: There are a lot of diets out there today. I am sure you have heard of many of them. There is the Zone Diet, the Macrobiotics Diet, the South Beach Diet. All these diets–the people that do them, who put them together–they claim that they all get results. You know, a lot of time they actually do get results. There is one common denominator on why they all succeed. They all eliminate certain foods from their diets completely without any exception whatsoever.

The reason why the raw diet is the best diet on the planet is because you are eliminating everything from your diet and only keeping in the good stuff. It's actually more important what you don't eat than what you actually eat. You know, there is this big superfoods craze going in the raw foods movement which is cool and has its place, but you can eat all the superfoods and raw foods until you are blue in the face, you are not going to get better unless you eliminate the cause which is certain foods. Should I get into that?

Kevin: Let's do it.

Matt: All right, let's do it. I like to break down the foods into the following food groups. We've got refined sugar, processed starches, dairy, animal protein and raw foods. So, if we understand that what you leave out of your diet completely is the way to ultimate health, then we want to leave out the foods that are most damaging to the body. From a scientific standpoint, the two most damaging foods are the refined sugars and processed starches. From a moral standpoint we want to eliminate the meat, but from a scientific standpoint it is not as damaging to the body.

In this intermediate diet that Fred uses to help heal people from degenerative diseases who don't want to go 100% raw, he eliminates the red meat. He has a little chicken, fish, turkey; maybe, four to six ounces every other day, and you can't mix them with the starches which are wheat and gluten-free starches in this diet, such as brown rice, quinoa, millet. There is something called Tinkyada pasta which is a wheat and gluten-free pasta. Steamed vegetables, there's a lot in that.

The foods are actually in my book, "Raw Spirit." He let me put that in there, but it doesn't really say–his normal diet will tell you when to eat what. Cow's milk products are one of the most mucus-forming foods you can do, but raw goat's milk products in moderate quantities are pretty good.

Kevin: Do you want to go into the difference between goat's, dairy and….? I guess it's considered dairy. Is it or no?

Matt: Yeah, I would say so. Well, a cow has a lot of casein in it, and that's the by-product of that pasteurized cow's milk that is really mucus-forming and damaging to the body. Cow's milk is actually supposed to take this little baby calf to this huge two ton cow. Then, when you have a little goat it's just more our size and it's raw and it's more beneficial to our bodies.

Kevin: You're a big fan of durian.

Matt: I am a big fan of durian.

Kevin: I am not very familiar with it. I've tried it a couple of times. I've tried the little freeze dried ones that you have. It's pretty good. It tastes like really healthy Honey-Nut Cheerios. What's the appeal, and what's the health benefit?

Matt: It's just the taste. I've read all of these good beneficial things about it.. It is a superfood, but it's best if I don't eat it. It's a trigger food. I don't know if you know what trigger foods are. Angela talks about them in her books. There are certain foods that if you eat you just can't stop, and those are the ones you want to stay away from. When I smell it, I'm just… Most people are disgusted by it. It's just like candy to me, and I just can't stop eating it.

Kevin: OK.

Matt: I just can't.. It's awesome. I have gone through two durians. I can be mature about it sometimes, but it's not easy.

Kevin: Very difficult.

Matt: Yeah.

Kevin: When you were talking before about foods going in, how important is the digestive system of some of this? Eating these raw foods, how can someone get that system to work smoothly if it is probably impaired from past experience?

Matt: In my opinion the best thing you can do is cleanse the colon.

Kevin: OK.

Matt: It just aids the process of moving the stuff out, the detoxification. It is not even the solid waste that we want to go after when we are doing colonics.

Kevin: OK.

Matt: For example, I was hanging out in the city for months, polluted air, and then I flew to Iceland which is pristine, clean water, everything. Because I left pollution out of my diet, I didn't change my diet at all but I started to detox. I would wake up with a runny nose. I would have sleep in my eyes. It was from the pollution, and this waste coming in the system wasn't solid waste. It was gases from just what I've done to my body through breathing polluted air.

Another example is the heroin addict when they start going through withdrawals and detoxifying that stuff. That's not solid waste coming to their system. It's just more particles and gases and stuff like that. Another example is someone who goes on a 30-day fast. I mean, they are eliminating toxins on a cellular level. If they were eliminating solid material, they would be turning into the stay puff monster, the marshmallow man. It's gases that we are trying to get out. When you do a colonic and you get to those bubbles that you see, that's when you can get the whole entire colon, that's why colonics are so much better than enemas if you can get those gases. That is key for taking it to the next level.

Kevin: I have heard people say–I don't know if you know the answer to this–but I am just going to ask and throw it out there.

Matt: Sure.

Kevin: The white in–as you are doing a colonic and you are watching the little white particles. Is that really Candida?

Matt: You know what? I don't know.

Kevin: OK.

Matt: Candida is a by-product of a toxic system. All disease is the same. Eighty percent of the people I talk to think they have Candida.

Kevin: Right.

Matt: Whether they truly do, I don't know. You can just do the appropriate things. Everything will just balance out, no matter what.

Kevin: So, it's not an issue of wondering exactly what that is. What about enzymes?

Matt: Enzymes? I think it is the best supplement that anybody can take. They are just a God send.

Kevin: Really? That powerful?

Matt: Yes. And the reason why I tell people to take them is not usually for digesting food like everybody else says. Any type of enzyme has helped with expediting the process of healing from degenerative diseases. When you take enzymes on an empty stomach, they go into the metabolic processes of the body and one of the processes is healing damage done to the body. So when you eat food and you put enzymes in there, these catalysts, they're just little powder, they make chemical reactions happen and they help digest the food. Now, when you don't have that food there, this powder goes in and all they do, they're proteins that create positive chemical reactions that would either happen later in life or they never happen at all. So they make all these things happen, just this powdered dust, and they just go to work through your body.

You could take any type of enzyme and do this. The therapeutic ones such as the Dr. Fred Bisci's enzymes we have, which are the best in my opinion – I've seen miraculous things happen with them – they're comparable to vitalzym and wobenzym or the other way around, those are comparable to Fred Bisci's enzymes. So, I take this stuff, I'm an extremist so you don't need to take it this much, but I take a teaspoon on an empty stomach two to three times a day. And when I go to an iridologist, he looks into my eyes and they just can't believe what they see. They've actually shown where they coupled radioactive particles with the enzymes, and it actually shows it going into the metabolic processes of the body. So, it's actually proven that this exists.

Kevin: Wow.

Matt: Yeah..

Kevin: Wow, and it just creates all, the importance of enzymes in those chemical reactions is that they trigger everything.

Matt: Yes, they just make things happen. Positive chemical reactions. Put this molecule with that molecule to heal that, and this and that, and they just keep going and going and going till they're no longer there.

Kevin: And what's the difference between metabolic systemic and digestive?

Matt: OK. They're just more powerful than certain ones like nattokinase and serapeptase which are generally in all three of those therapeutic enzymes I mentioned earlier. Those two enzymes are in there. They're very powerful. They help with inflammation and they have the potential to dissolve cancerous tumors. All enzymes can do this on an empty stomach, but not like these. These are just miraculous. The recommended dosage, just for maintenance, is maybe half a teaspoon on an empty stomach a couple times a day. But there have been some serious patients of Fred's where five tablespoons on an empty stomach a day were recommended.

Kevin: Wow.

Matt: There was this one case where someone had multiple myeloma, which is cancer of the blood, which is supposedly incurable. And it was at the very beginning stages, yes. So what happened was Fred put this man on his intermediate diet and gave him massive enzymes. Two weeks later he went back to the doctor, and they were like, "Whoa! We diagnosed you wrong." His multiple myeloma had regressed to the earlier stages, which is impossible, so think they diagnosed him wrong.

There was this one woman, a college friend of mine, she was looking for how to heal from PCOS, which is Polycystic Ovarian…something, but she had a cluster of little, itty- bitty tumors all over her ovaries, and she couldn't get pregnant anymore. So, she came to me for advice because she trusted me from our old school days. And I threw her on Fred's intermediate diet, gave her a massive amount of enzymes, she was willing to do the colon hydrotherapy and juice everyday, and she just had her baby. This happened over a year ago. She went back to the hospital after a few months of doing this, and they took an X-ray of her. Instead of a galaxy of stars of little cysts, it was maybe just maybe ten total. It was just amazing.

Kevin: Only over a year!

Matt: Less than that. Much less than that. And I feel like the enzymes have a big role in that. I mean, of course with everything else, the colon hydrotherapy is key.

Kevin: So, it's not just the enzymes?

Matt: Right.

Kevin: Enzymes are just a portion of that.

Matt: I feel like it expedites the process.

Why Superfoods?

Why are Superfoods so Important for our Health?

George The Owner of Superfoods InofsSuperfoods are known to us for almost a thousand years and if you look at Asia, for more than three thousand years! Although many scientists in the western world are well aware of the existence and the effect that superfoods have on the human body, the interest of the pharmaceutical industry remains very low, for the simple reason, that there is no money to be made with superfoods! Nevertheless, the same pharmaceutical industry is employing most of the scientists and therefor blocking evolution itself.  I strongly believe superfoods to be the most important discovery of mankind, and here is why:

On April 29th 2010 I was diagnosed with skin cancer; Squamous cell carcinoma to be precise. That was devastating news. At first, I went in circles and didn't know what to do; for sure I wasn't going to give up and die just like that! And as so often in the most miserable moments of our lives,  a friend was there to help. She recommended the movie "Food Matters" to me. After watching the movie about five times, a light started to shine on the dark horizon and I started to implement everything I had learned about superfoods in this move  into my own live. But I had licked blood and I was sure that wasn't all I could do. I started to search on Google and I learned everything there was to know about skin cancer and about superfood.

The amount of information I found was just overwhelming and I quickly wished there was a place you could get all this Information about Superfoods on one single place. There are many good websites out there about nutrition and super food and antioxidants and what the do. So I had the idea to create a website with articles from all these valuable websites, with links to the appropriate site, so everybody who would come to my site would find all the infos easily and could start using available superfoods right away.

After my initial diagnose of skin cancer I had started to take food supplements, such as Vitamin C every day, and most of all "Peking Grass" that considerably pushed the immune system, and a multivitamin  pill per day. I eat mostly raw food, salads, vegetables and fruits and I work out 6 days a week for an hour. At the end of May 2010 I had a second surgery on my neck. I don't want to tell you about my feelings at this time, when I had to wait 10 days for the result. On top of it all, this all happened in Bangkok to the time when the city was under lock-down and looked more like Beirut than the the Thai metropolis. In short, a depressive time. And therefore, when the result finally came back negative, the relief was unimaginable!

Since then I keep up with my new lifestyle. I keep my diet, and I started to love it and I really don't miss any other food at all. There are so many healthy foods out there, it simply makes no sense to me to eat anything else. Superfoods QR CodeI keep up with my workout and for the first time in 50 years I can see my abs when I look in the mirror! My weight loss in 5 month was 10 kg on fat and I gained about 7 kg on pure muscle! So I actually can only pride myself of  loosing 3 kg weight in total but if I look in the mirror I can see that the masses have moved from down on my belly and my waist, upwards to my chest and my shoulders! That looks much better I can tell you! As of today I'm still cancer free and I intend to keep it that way. The only regret I have is that I didn't know all that what I know today about superfoods, years ago. I would have saved myself a great deal of trouble, not to speak of the money. Cancer is an expensive thing to have if you don't have an insurance. So please do yourself a huge favor and read through as many articles as you can here. Learn everything there is to know about superfoods and MAKE USE OF IT! I've included the QR code of this superfoods website, so you can bookmark it and find back easily.

Organic Superfood

“Superfood” is a term coined to define foods rich in phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are certain organic constituents of plants. Nutritionists agree that these phytonutrients have health-promoting benefits. Fruits and vegetables, along with nuts, certain teas like green tea, grains, and legumes are rich sources of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients consist of carotenoids, phytosterols, isoflavones (including genistein and daidzen), coumarins, indoles, lignans, flavonoids and organosulfurs. Phytonutrients are commonly associated with the color of foods. There is a variety of colors in every day foods that we eat. Such colors like vibrant green, bright juicy red, white, tempting yellow-orange and blue-purple not only add color to our plate, but add a variety of nutrients as well. Because of this dieticians recommend the rainbow diet-a variety of colored foods every day.Evidence that eating a variety of fruits and vegetables protects human health is accumulating from large population studies, human feeding studies, and cell culture studies. As research expands, more conclusive results are awaited. “For now”, the USDA Agriculture Research Center states, “it appears that an effective strategy for reducing risk of cancer and heart disease is to increase consumption of phytonutrient-rich foods including fruits, vegetables, grains and teas.”Foods rich in phytonutrients are:

  • All the brightly colored foods such as tomatoes, squashes, carrots-any food which is yellow and orange, green or red.
  • Fruits which include citrus fruits and berries
  • Flaxseeds
  • Whole grains and legumes
  • Garlic and leeks
  • Green teas
  • Members of the cabbage family known as cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli or romaine lettuce
  • Dark leafy greens such as spinach
  • Soybeans

The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least 5 – 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. On average, Americans consume 3.3 servings of vegetables a day. Dark green vegetables and deep yellow vegetables each represent only 0.2 daily servings. About 48% of Americans consume less than one serving of fruit a day. Fruits and vegetables retain more nutrients when they are organic. The word “organic” signifies that these foods are totally naturally. No pesticides, or artificial fertilizers are used to grow organic foods. There is no genetic modification. Foods claiming to be organic must be free of artificial food additives, and are often processed with fewer artificial methods, materials and conditions. Organic food production is legally regulated.

Organic Superfoods
Organic Superfoods contain a combination of superfoods as natural, organic ingredients in a synergistic ratio. You get a good dose of phytonutrients in one single serving! It is important to read the label carefully to make sure you are buying a product made with organic ingredients as these have the highest nutritive value and are more easily digested by the body. Organic superfoods are not meant to be a replacement for food. But not all of us can consistently eat the required fruit and vegetables we need each day. Superfoods can augment your daily diet to make sure you are getting phytonutrient power for optimum health protection.

Superfoods – Why Eat Them?

Why You Should Start Using Superfoods Today

If you are confused about what superfoods are, here’s what sorted it out for me. Superfoods really began to take on an identity when David Wolfe began delving into raw food prior to the 21st Century. I found him on the Internet when he and two other partners started telling everyone about raw food and how great it was.

As time progressed, I kept seeing David introducing foods that were from all over the world. Some he called “superfoods” which was the first time I began hearing that word. Over the last three years, I have seen more and more reference to “superfoods” – both pros and cons. Plus including a lot of our traditional foods in this category. I fell into this same hole, logically associating superfoods with the dictionary definitions of both “super” and “food.” When I realized this wasn’t making sense, I went looking to see what David Wolfe had to say.

There’s a definition of sorts in David Wolfe’s book called “Superfoods” and as I read it, all the confusion about this subject fell away.

“Superfoods comprise a specific set of edible, incredibly nutritious plants that are not entirely classifiable as foods nor are they entirely classifiable as medicines (such as herbs).” Reference “Superfoods” by David Wolfe

To fully grasp this, I highly recommend you get the book so as to get the full idea of what David is saying here.

So, Why Eat Superfoods?

When you look at superfoods as a whole new class of edible items (different from traditional foods and herbs), what are they good for?

I have found a way to replace most of the multitude of vitamin and mineral tablets I began adding to every meal 40 years ago. When I began integrating superfoods into my diet, I found that I no longer needed to take so many vitamin pills and other supplements in pill or tablet form. What a relief!

Hemp Seed is one such superfood. I began taking hemp seed a few years ago as I was looking for a natural source of Vitamin E. The hemp seed is rich in Vitamin E and Omega Fatty Acids, and so much more. This item is listed as a superfood in David’s book.

Aloe Vera is another superfood I take. I was looking for something to normalize my digestive system. Since I am over 60, my various organs need more support. I really was unable to make any significant difference with traditional foods or supplements.

When I found I could buy the whole leaf of the aloe, and have it shipped to me, I tried it. The aloe is known to help nourish the liver and pancreas as well as other vital organs. I have found it to be an all-around whole-body food.

More Superfood Examples

  • Marine Phytoplankton – This first appeared on the market through a network marketing company and I enjoyed it’s benefits early on. It has a wealth of minerals from the sea, among many vital other nutrients.
  • Coconut – I was doing research on various types of food in the 1970’s and came across the coconut oil (for the skin) in a healthfood store. It seemed to do something positive for my nervous system when I ate it. This was before it became available as an organic and raw, extra-virgin coconut oil as found today. Was I ever thrilled to find the more wholesome version many years later.
  • AFA (Aphanizomenom flos-aqua) Blue Green Algae – I first came across this particular blue green algae back in the 1990’s when a network marketing company began distributing it. I was looking for a food that would provide more energy and it certainly did just that! Now there are many more versions of this wonderful superfood.

More Familiar Superfoods

  • Cacao Beans – which I learned about through the writings and audio tapes of David Wolfe. It took me a while to get the fact that the chocolate that I ate as a child was different from raw chocolate made from the raw cacao beans. Now raw chocolate treats are a very pleasant part of my daily nutrition program.
  • Maca Root – again, this one I owe to David Wolfe. I don’t eat much of it but it definitely helps to balance hormones of the body.
  • Spirulina – I found this one back in the 1980’s. It’s been around for a long time. I first tried to use it as a protein replacement but that just didn’t work for me. I get a lot of value from it now by mixing a quarter teaspoon a day in my breakfast drink. I mainly use it for the array of vitamins and minerals not found in other foods. Spirulina is definitely very stabilizing.

So… I hope this helps you to sort through any confusion you’ve run into about superfoods. They really are in a “class” of their own. Evaluate them for yourself and see if you agree.
