On today’s show, we feature an exclusive interview with Roe Gallo, Ph.D. Roe is an internationally known and recognized author, motivational speaker, and health coach. At 25 years old, after a near death experience, Roe decided that she needed to take back control of her life. At the time, she had been struggling through a lifelong battle with asthma, an anaphylactic reaction that nearly killed her and placed her in a hospital where one month of drug therapy left her even worse off than before. Roe decided to take matters into her own hands and developed a plan for herself based around the research she did in physiology and good nutrition.

After some time Roe began to share her plan with a larger audience because she knew there were others who were facing problems with their health and for whom the medical community had no good answers. She wrote a small book based on physiology and health, “Body Ecology”. When she was in graduate school, she expanded “Body Ecology” into “Perfect Body, The Raw Truth” and then revised it and changed the name slightly to “Perfect Body, Beyond the Illusion.”

Roe’s books focus on a plan based on fresh, raw, organic fruit and green leafy veggies; distilled water, fresh squeezed citrus juice (orange, grapefruit) as the basis of a healthy diet. She focused on diet because past research and recent studies show that disease relates to toxicity and that diet is the primary contributor. Of course, Roe’s plan isn’t just about food. It is about getting and staying healthy. Fitness, rest, sunshine, mental and emotional health and a positive attitude toward life greatly affects our health.

Roe’s latest book, Overcoming The Myths of Aging, builds upon 20 plus years of consulting experience to bring these concepts to a wider audience. Overcoming the Myths of Aging is a book for us all, addressing the common myths that keep us from losing weight, looking great and living happier, healthier lives.

Our interview features Roe’s incredible battle to overcome disease using a raw food diet. In addition, Roe discusses the physiological scientific data that supports eating in the most natural, healthful way.
