15 Best raw food documentary movies that changed my life
Some people are (literally) dying to see these raw food documentary films…don’t be one of them!
Watch out for your health and find out:
– What’s killing you.
– What choices you have for a disease-free life!
1. Food Inc.
Shocking truth about what we put into our mouth every day and how it’s produced. US food supply is controlled by only a couple of corporations, which often put profit ahead of people’s wellbeing,…and the government agencies such as USDA and FDA have rubber-stamped this! Bad…
This movie is on the top of this raw food documentary list because it’s the first one I ever saw…and while the info seems so obvious to me now, at the time it literally was an eye-opener…
Featuring interviews with experts such as
– Eric Schlosser – Fast Food Nation
– Michael Pollan – The Omnivore’s Dilemma / In Defense of Food
– Gary Hirshberg – Stonyfield
– Joel Salatin – Polyface Farms
2. Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead
Joe Cross, successful businessman – and a great personality – is overweight and has a serious medical problem, which he decides to tackle head-on. Joe flies from Australia to US to undertake a physician-supervised 60 day juice fast.
30 days in New York City. 30 days travelling from East to West – meeting people and talking about juice fasting.
Great story telling, charming,…life-changing…fun too!
3. Forks Over Knives
Raw food reality show. Kind of. The idea of food as medicine is really put to the test in this movie. Cameras follow “reality patients” who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors show these patients how to adopt a whole foods plant based diet as a main way to heal their illnesses. You can see the challenges and successes the patients face on their journeys.
The major storyline traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional biochemist from Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic. Doctors onboard the raw food wagon!
Vegucated is a guerrilla-style raw food documentary that follows three meat and cheese loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks and learn what it’s all about.
5. Food Matters
The Food Matters is a hard hitting raw food documentary – collection of interviews with scientists, MDs, nutritionists, naturopaths and medical journalists all over the world. You’ll discover:
Who needs vitamins? Is organic better? How safe is our food? What is the best ways to detox? What is the best way to lose weight and keep it off?
Good health makes a lot of sense but it does not make a lot of dollars. The ‘Sickness industry’ is a trillion dollar business!
How to use food as medicine to prevent illness and fight chronic and degenerative diseases such as cholesterol, anxiety, depression, heart disease, mental illness – depression, anxiety.
“There’s no magic bullet, but there is a lifestyle change that can reverse the damage done!”
– It’s cheap
– It’s simple
– It’s safe
– It’s effective
You are what you eat. Food DOES matter.
Your choice! You don’t have to be sick.

8. Dying to Have Known
Is raw food diet as a possible cure for diseases just a hoax?
Filmmaker Steve Kroschel went on a 52-day journey from NY through Alaska, Holland and Spain in Europe to Japan in Asia to talk to patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists who tried the Gerson therapy to heal their serious diseases.
Well, just the fact that Steve reached these people alive is a proof of something…but see the rest for yourself…
9. Killer at Large
Obesity is the biggest terrorist of all.
Produced by big names as Bill Clinton and Arnie Schwarzenegger. Did you know that one?
10. The Beautiful Truth
Raised on a wildlife reserve in Alaska, 15-year old Garrett is fascinated by a book written by Dr. Max Gerson that shows a direct link between diet and a cure for cancer – that Garrett’s mom sadly died of recently. Garrett & his dad embark on a cross-country road trip to investigate The Gerson Therapy.
Travel with Garrett to meet scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal why it is in the best interest of the multi-billion dollar medical industry to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures – and how they cure cancer with The Gerson Therapy that Max Gerson (and now his daughter Charlotte Gerson) teach – low in fat, salt, protein and high in vegan raw foods,….

GMO is a sell invasion technology.
So is our food safe? Find out =>
I’ll use the words of the producers:
“Fresh celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.”
Let’s celebrate together by watching Fresh the raw food documentary movie!
We depend on dirt to purify and heal the systems that sustain us. We are dirt.
