Dr. Cousens' work with healing type 2 diabetes and other diseases through raw food can be seen in the documentary "30 days of raw". This book outlines his basic theories, but the majority of the book is on raw recipes. His dehydrated croquettes are amazing! All these recipes are from what they serve in his Tree of Life retreat. It's great how he incorporates Ayurvedic principles even when going raw. Highly recommended as a raw food classic text.
