Getting Raw and Personal in Winston-Salem

human beings with big hearts, curious minds and great arms for hugging! As I walked through the door, I felt a big sigh, a letting go to the zen they’ve manifested in their space.

Hey everybody! I’m working feverishly to get my new RAW website up ExperienceRAW.com. In the meantime, you can get all sorts of good information about what it’s like to live a RAW lifestyle right here on my blog.

You are about to make one of the most important changes to your health!!!
