Jordan Rubin of the "Garden of Life"

Jordan Rubin is one of the most recognized and respected health experts in America. He has walked the walk as far as overcoming life threatening health issues. His doctor diagnosed Jordan with "the worse case of Crohn's" (a chronic digestive illness that affects the immune system) he had ever seen and did not expect him to live. He was in excellent health until 19, when his health declined dramatically, lost over 80 pounds and at one point was bound to a wheelchair and only 104 pounds.

After conventional medicine and numerous hospitalizations his family  sought out over 70 alternative nutritional therapies throughout the world. Their search concluded with a California nutritionist who suggested Jordan eat the same whole foods consumed in ancient times: RAW, organically grown whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and fermented dairy, grass fed beef, and free range poultry. Jordan also added a daily regimen of probiotics rich in beneficial bacteria and soil-based organisms. Within this process he gained 29 pounds in 40 days and by his 21st birthday he weighed in at 180 pounds, free of the digestive problems.

Jordan' was so grateful for his return to health that he dedicated the rest of his life to sharing what he's learned with the rest of the world. He wrote the books, Patient Heal Thyself and Restoring Your Digestive Health. In 2004 he wrote The Maker's Diet that spent a total of 47 weeks on the New York Time's best seller list. In addition to these, Jordan has also written 19 other health books. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs, including Good Morning America, NBC Nightly News, Fox News, Inside Edition and the Food Network. In his spare time Jordan travels as a motivational speaker.

Jordan's Garden of Life label has come out with an all RAW line. I've used some of his vitamin and supplement products in the past and I'm now trying his RAW protein powder in my smoothies. So far so good!
