I thought Sanoviv was representative of a raw vegan diet…
When Sanoviv began, the diet was 100% raw vegan, in an effort to provide a more cleansing/detoxifying diet. Back then, most of our programs were focused on general detoxification for healthy individuals and over the years our client base has changed. We now see more guests with a wide variety of health conditions, among them, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune and digestive disorders as well as completely healthy people. The vegetarian raw diet is not appropriate for everyone, especially those with digestive problems (raw can be very difficult to digest). And based on all the nutrition and diet information that we have reviewed, we no longer believe there is one diet best for all. We continually review all of the research and current books about diet and have adjusted our thinking based not only on research, but on clinical outcomes. We have combined the best from other systems of nutritional medicine (Chinese, Ayurveda, metabolic typing) and a wide variety of healing diets. For example, some people thrive on a raw food vegan diet, while others decline rapidly and feel worse.
So the diet we now serve, is still detoxifying and alkalizing for most people (due to its high vegetable, raw juice and whole food content), however, we can easily make changes based on the individual needs of our guests. Our diet now includes some wild-caught fish and organic poultry, but in very small amounts. If someone requests a raw vegan diet, we can do that. If a cancer patient has specific needs for more protein (whether animal or vegetable) and cooked veggies, we can also do that. If we have a dental patient who had oral surgery or other dental work, that requires a liquid or a soft diet, we can accommodate their needs. And if we find specific nutrition requirements through our assessment of our guests, we can specify a certain diet. Our goal is to help our guests find the diet that works best for them to keep them optimally healthy, throughout their lives and/or the diet that will improve their health condition. We also want to be able to provide our guests with realistic guidelines for when they return home and our nutrition department works closely with each guest to identify priorities with dietary changes.
If you are thriving on a raw food diet, then we would encourage you to continue and we would provide that for you the next time you come here, if that is your preference. We would also assess your nutrient status to make sure you are getting everything you need from your diet.
So really, our current diet, is a product of 12 years of clinical experience with our guests, current scientific research and the changing food supply (which is a big challenge in our world today). I hope this answers your question. Please feel free to contact me if you have additional comments.
