Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    Speaking of questions…How was your visit in San Antonio? We heard about your fun in Austin but no mention about your events here in San Antonio. I had to work but I was looking forward to your comments about your days in San Antonio.

  34. estiva says:

    nope 🙁

  35. would love to hear that information–but, no video. My favorite condiments— soaked, marinated and dehydrated sunflower and pumpkin seeds:

    1 cup pumpkin seeds
    1 cup sunflower seeds
    1/8 cup tamari
    1/8 tsp cayenne

    soak seeds for 3-4 hours — drain water and then sprinkle on tamari and cayenne. Place in dehydrator until crispy—these are great over salads

    other things that I like as condiments–
    kelp and/or dulse
    shredded coconut for over desserts–(choc mousse)
    ground nuts for over pasta w/sauces

  39. Nathalie says:

    Haha, me neither….
    Keen when you have some healthy time to give it some fresh organic juice to pep her up!

    Enjoy life 🙂

  40. Nathalie says:

    My bad!!!

    It just took a dollap of time tis all,
    cheers x

  41. Nathalie says:

    Huh… I know there are many bad balsamic vinegars out there, but all???

    Very interested in knowing all you know about this topic, thank you kindly and I love your shows, to you both enjoy a marvelous experience with everything…

  42. Kenny says:

    The video works now.

  43. Elena says:

    Thanks for the info. I’d like to find out more about Ocean Grown products for my organic garden.

    In terms of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, I interchange these regularly. I also alternate using celtic sea salt and unpasteurized miso in my salad dressings. I remember one of the folks you interviewed during the Amazing Rawkathon recommended Miso in place of sea salt or Himalayan, since miso, though fermented contains beneficial bacteria, etc. (was it jameth Sheridan or his Brother Rick Dina? I forget. 😉

    Thanks for the great job you are doing sharing this very educational and inspiring journey around the country.

  45. John says:

    I had been using Balsamic on my salads but recently started using either fresh lemon or lime juice and I like the lime better actually, I also add olive oil and sea salt to the salad. I had some amazing raw ketchup at Leafy Greens Cafe in St. Petersburg, FL in December but don’t have the recipe, would love to have it though…Anne Marie??? Your raw hummus recipe is a great condiment and very versatile really.

  46. ann gleason says:

    I’ve been making this dressing lately:
    olive and/or hemp oil
    lemon/lime juice
    barley miso
    raw organic wildflower honey
    chia powder
    nutritional yeast

    sounds strange, doesn’t it?
    but it’s really good!

    raw apple cider vinegar
    lime juice
    barley miso

    sea salt
    fresh black pepper

  47. Marty says:

    Hi Kevin,
    Someone told me about using Tomatillas for sour flavor instead of the vinegar. That was five years ago and I had not tried it until about two weeks ago. I wanted something savory, so I put Macs, piece of onion, good salt, and half a small tomatilla,plus a small clove of garlic with some water. All about 1 cup of ingredients, 1/4 c water into the Vitamix and YUMMM! It was soooo good. Add whatever you like too. I was so happy with my creation. Hope you give it a try. No fermentation, no bloom hopefully!
    Thanks so much for your wonderful shows! You RAWCK! Marty

  48. Kim says:

    Hi Kevin,

    I love your show and watching you and Annmarie. You offer some wonderful and important information.

    However, would it be possible to tone down the intro. It’s rather shocking! — The loud music and your “GOOD AFTERNOON AND WELCOME TO THE RENEGADE HEALTH SHOW, TODAY IS…”

    Just a gentle request. If not, I will still keep watching and just mute the intro.

    Thanks for all you do! I hope your trip around America in the Kale Whale is going well. Be safe in your travels.



  49. Ernie says:

    As a long time sprouter, I can tell you that if you use only Certified Organic seeds for sprouting that there is no need for hydrogen peroxide, but do use it for all other seeds. A cap full in your soak water, then rinse thoroughly after the soak.

  50. Cindy says:

    Is there something wrong with balsamic vinegar? I haven’t heard anything negative but would love your feedback.
    That is what I use with extra virgin olive oil on all my salads. Sometimes i use brown vinegar instead. Are there any problems with that?
    Thanks Kevin and have a great day

  51. Nicole says:

    I’ve tried making many dressing but my favorite is still plain—old—mustard. When I was little I loved lettuce and mustard sandwiches. If I make a salad and it’s less than delicious in spite of the “fancy” dressing I tried, I just put mustard all over it and it saves the day. I was so happy to see the earlier video about how to make raw mustard; now I can make my own!

  52. maya says:

    i often use orange or apple juice instead of vinegar or lemon – its less acidic…

  53. Tyra McMahon says:

    I love to use freshly squeezed lime. Also I heard you can use yacon syrup if you have candida issues.

  54. Pat says:

    In the olden days of dieting circa 1960s, lemon juice was often used on salads. Fred Bisci recently recommended that I use it and wow! I forgot how bright and fresh it makes a salad taste! Also, as a kid, my mother made salads everyday using wine vinegar, olive oil, a shake of salt and pepper and a pinch of sugar. THAT was delicious! I’ve so tired of trendy balsamic vinegar.

  55. misty says:

    I notice you mentioned that lacuma, when you had it with the cereal, gave you candida symptoms again. But You were eating banana, terribly sweet, so how could you assume it was lacuma. I have no experince with lacuma, so I’m not biased.

  56. Pamela W says:

    If we don’t have Alissa Cohen’s fudge balls (or my versions thereof) and some of her recipe of honey mustard dressing in the house, my husband feels something is amiss. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s creamy cheddar dip is a staple, and so is some type of raw french dressing to drizzle over everything from baked potato to steamed brussel sprouts to a big plate of greens. Raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar, some agave, some cinnamon, and always a jar of fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice, are always found at our table.

  57. Stephanie Tisone says:

    green stevia is good thats what i use
    if you can get the whole leaf dried stevia its even better depending on what your creating due to it being a leaf and not dissolving
    and growing it of course always the best idea!!

  58. sylvia says:

    one day while preparing a green smoothie, i accidently dropped in 1/4 of a meyers lemon & decided to leave it in the mix. it was delicious & i now do it whenever i can get meyers lemons.

  59. DELANEY says:


    What are the nutritional facts on Lacuma powder? I just started playing with it last night and I STILL have gassy tummy at 1 pm the next day. What is IN it? I bought some online after watching one of your videos and it tastes like heaven but I started eating it blindly, I have to admit.

  60. Christina says:

    This is an older thread but I thought I’d add to it anyway…

    You mentioned we should post if we like another brand of Stevia…I also like to use the green powdered stevia but I really do love Body Ecology’s liquid stevia extract. I do have some of Sweet Leaf’s stevia extracts as well…I use some of their flavored stevias frankly because theirs is the only brand that I am aware of that has various flavored sweeteners. I have to say that my favorite one as far as TASTE goes is definitely Body Ecology’s since theirs does not have that odd aftertaste like the other brands do if you either add it to a warm drink or if you add too much. It’s just SWEET. Plain and simple! 🙂

    As far as condiments…I use:
    Different sea salts
    Raw Balsamic Vinegar
    I mainly use Cultured Vegetables or Cultured Vegetable Dressings to top my foods! 🙂 YUMMM!!

  61. Can you recommend a good anti candida book. Thank you.
