The story behind this book:
100% RAW LOVE was originally created to support Melanie Maria, a raw chef from Berlin, Germany on her over 2 year long healing journey of cancer.
After the ﬁrst operation and treatment only helped temporarily, she chose an alternative therapy in early 2013 and continued to consume liters of green juices and smoothies with wild herbs on a daily basis.
Our intention was to support her covering the costs of her therapy but unfortunately, Melanie passed away in February 2014. 100% RAW LOVE will continue to be available in her memory though, so people will be informed earlier and have more knowledge in how to heal and thrive.
Our new aim for this book are therefore 2 things:
1. to support others who choose to use alternative treatments as (part of) their healing regime
2. to continue Melanie Maria’s quest – to educate and support as many people as possible in achieving a healthier lifestyle by donating to KIVA .
KIVA is a non-profit organization that allows you to lend micro credits to people in less privileged environments. The first loans were given to women in Kenya, Uganda, Iraq, El Salvador, Vietnam and Kosovo, and many more will follow.
