Welcome to Hil’aw World!
hilaw (a Tagalog word)
hil´aw adj. raw (food), green, uncooked, undercooked, sometimes it also means unripe but in my context am referring to raw/uncooked food.
I, Nanay’sdaughter (ND for short) is a 37 year old daughter of Nanay and a single mom to a beautiful 6 year old daughter. I intend to eat
full raw a at least 60% raw every day …(or hilaw in Tagalog) by Lenten Season 2013 2014. I have been transitioning to a raw vegan/mostly fruitarian diet since August 2012 and have been enjoying the benefits of this improvement in diet and lifestyle. I intend to bring it a step further by overcoming cravings for cooked food. How? via Orange Juice Feasting MH Way.

Important Updates: Its now September 2013 and am still not
fully raw..near to being 69% raw…. but I have made tremendous changes in my overall health and well being just with the small steps I made last year.. I am going to do it again this month (and hopefully I get to do more steps forward to compensate for my backward steps in the past few months)..My gallbladder attacks started coming back again since I fell off the bandwagon– so I am picking myself up from where I left off — GALLBLADDER ATTACKS So am starting on my THIRD FAST again with a PRe-cleanse 14 Sept to 21 Sept (the precleanse includes LBB and Dewormer for 7 days and then a Liver/GallBladder Flush— which will kickstart my THIRD FAST
My Thermal Images in March 2010 shows elevated heat near my liver/gallbladder which was further confirmed by medical tests as fatty liver. In June 2013, my thermal images shows no more elevated heat on my liver/gallbladder area– so perhaps these are just stones rather than fatty liver symptoms…nevertheless there is still elevated heat on my neck and armpits and some elevated heat on my left breast as well.. so this is the reason why I am going to take this fast more seriously now. My Standard deviation is only 1.3 though whereas cancer patients like Nanay usually have standard deviation of 2 or more (the higher the standard deviation the worse it is)..
Who am I doing this for?
Of course, I am doing this for me. I have to restore my health (no, I do not have any serious diseases – at least not yet).
But most of all I am doing this for my daughter- I would like to give her a headstart by setting an example.
And most importantly, I am doing this for my mother (battling breast cancer), my mother’s cousin (battling colon cancer), a few of our relatives in the Philippines, US and Australia (currently battling all sorts of degenerative diseases) and to many women who is suffering from depression.
A tribute to my mother’s tenacity and will power to live not for herself but for all her love ones and also a way to pray for transformation in the medical community and the governments all over the world to move towards cancer prevention through non-toxic meands….
Last but not the least, I am doing this to glorify the true Healer and creator of Health.
Who inspired me to finally take this seriously?
