Here is a link (http://www.oprah.com/media/20090305_oradio_mo) to an excerpt from a conversation between Dr. Oz and Dr. Cousens about whether raw foods can help the body to heal itself. In this excerpt they speak mainly about Type II Diabetes and Dr. Cousens' Tree of Life 21 day program. I think this maybe a great intro to the concept of the body healing itself when given the proper tools (nutrition) for someone with "conventional" thinking. If anyone has the full program, please post info about where to find it. It that would be great to listen to the whole conversation.
