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 RenegadeHealth.com — 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.

    I will send info through my email list.

    I do want to say that I read good things about chaparral in the book Healing With Whole Foods. One place it said that drugs (even drugs like birth control pills, etc)settle in the brain, liver and other tissue, and that chaparral cleanse is great to detox these organs from drugs. Since I was on birth control pills for 15 years I decided to do the detox, and personally I felt like it really helped my thinking. For me (and I did not work with a health care professional)it was great.

    I would like to see you put your camera on a book or something so that you are not always bending over to look into it. It makes me feel like I need to get down to see you. I enjoy your show. Linda

    I found that eating raw decreased my sensitivities to chemicals and made my immune system stronger 🙂

    Hi Kevin,
    The food manipulaters are brain washing the little kids with food lists like your sister-in-laws kid has. Once they get the kids wanting their faux food; it takes about 70 years for them to relize what caused their premature degenerative disease’s. Thats what David Kessler MD said on NPR the other day.

  7. Cherry Tye says:

    Linda’s comment was so funny and true! I found myself leaning forward also. I guess that is what happens when you are “tall”, intriguing, and personable. Everyone wants to connect with you and six books just don’t cut it. Happy just to hear you share as I am sure Linda is also.

    PS. Wonder what people would do if you started tilting your head sidways as you spoke. Think there would be a lot of stiff necks? Bet people would be doing it too. Just don’t pick your nose on camera. People are such silly creatures. I love to watch them.

  8. Mary says:

    I found your book, which I read online (thank you very much!) to be well thought out, informative and backed up with obvious research. The fact that you include inter and intrapersonal relationships in your discussions is unique to you and extremely helpful. Your attention to detail and your intrepid research are wonderful to see in a book you are offering to even new raw food lovers like me.

    Your book will succeed because you seem to practice all of the steps that you advocate for your readers–the old saw about walking the walk: You do it. Best of everything to you.

    facebook friends, myspace friends, gmail friends, twitter friends…. kevin, do you only live online? can I tell my real life friends about the book, ya know, like in the park, over a mango salad? 🙂

    New listener and Thouroughly enjoy your show. I’m not Vegan or Vegetarian but i am a Christian (and I don’t like beef). The “gocery list” brings to mind a scripture from the Bible ( Proverbs 22:6 )”train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” America has blown this one. Our country is out of control on the things that are programed into our children, the stats are STAGGERING. Thank you for pointing out this propaganda, If I had your platform I would be screaming about that one !!!!!

    I will forward the info to our local CO-OP (sort of) where we get our organics and the leader of JubileeOrganics will likely post this info for ALL…you might try that in other areas, I think ours has a good network of people who are interested in good health.

    Thanks, your doing a great job.

    Hi Kevin,

    I’m just reading your book now. Since I’m from Croatia, only thing I can offer you is to translate your book so it becomes understandable to people from ex Yugoslavia.

    Let me know what you think.

    Have a nice day

    I guess, you can ask Matt Monarch to put it on his web store site as some bonus .

    Here are some ideas for getting the word out about your book:

    Send free copies of the book to Oprah and all the other TV talk show hosts, and also radio hosts, especially alternative radio shows. Who knows, you might just end up getting invited to appear on the show.

    Also, send copies to people who host raw food potlucks, and ask them to have the book out when a potluck is happening. It could be a good conversation piece.

    You could find out if raw food restaurants, such as Cafe Gratitude, would like copies to have on hand for their customers to read while waiting for their meals.

    It could also make a good gift for friends and family members, a non-confrontational way of introducing them to the idea of eating more raw foods.

    I think it is really awesome of you to give away so many ebooks, but you will also need to give away some hard copies of the book in order to get some publicity happening.

    And send press releases along with the book to all the newspapers that have a book review section. Let’s get it reviewed by the New York Times!

    I am hesitant to talk much beyond telling people I am experimenting with raw foods to add variety to the table. If they pursue the conversation, I explain more fully. (My husband is decidedly against giving up his SAD)
    Food choices seem to be like religion: it is a very personal experience. Once you have “seen the light” you want to tell the world how it changed your life. How annoying is that!!
    People who are sick (I am a senior, all my friends have something) associate my health with luck, not diet. One said, “I’m not going to change anything; just give me a pill.” (his insurance covers pills) SADly, that is the prevalent American attitude.
    So I just model good health and promote healthy eating when asked.

  15. Eva says:


    I downloaded the book – it is great! What I love most is how non dogmatic and sensible it is. I believe people will be more receptive to it than some books on raw food – the truth is you can not win anyone by pounding the Bible onto their heads! So keep up good work! I am trying to spread a word to my coworkers and I am hoping others will do likewise.
    I agree with the comment that we have to be good models of health and fitness..I just talked to one of my contractors who said that he ate at a raw food restaurant and it was the worst meal of his life:( My response? I said – it is a personal choice and I personally choose to invest into my health. One of the reasons – who can affort medical care in this country? (no offense intended to anyone)…It looked like he was able to understand that, but it will ultimately be his choice.
    So yes, let us all lead by example and if we can affect one person positively, we have already accompished a lot.
    Thanks Kevin!

    I think the question about sensitivity may have been related more to what Matt Monarch is talking about, how when you get more and more pure in body and mind, you become more and more dangerously sensitive to cigarette smoke, msg, cooked food, hospital medication, radiation, etc.

    Personally, I hope it’s not true – or that it depends on the individual. I need to be prepared at all times to be exposed to any of those things.

  17. Thea McBride says:

    I have the same problem as another reader, whenever I enter my name and e-mail address, the site rejects my e-mail address and I now receive two copies of all the messages sent out. Is that becaue I have a Canadian e-mail address? Would love to download and read the book.

    hello: I think you are right with your branding it is changing the health world one by one. eventually their will be a whirlwind of change, right now I think you are doing the right thing to keep us “renegades” going high raw. personally, i am having a hard time in the transition because everywhere I go there is not one vegetable to be seen. unless milky coleslaw is one. I travelled over the weekend and for the first time I took pre-made jugs of 3 different kinds of green juices. I got questions, some tasted and some laughed that it looked like I was spitting tobacco juice into my cup. I am learning I am going to have to eat raw by myself at home and then go out and when people see the difference in me e.g weight loss and the shine and energy that comes with going raw, I think more people will be interested. just like with kids, friends too want to see example and change. martha
