It reminds me of a video I recently did on peer
pressure which hits a little close to home with
this whole raw food movement just a different
setting:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFYemvDujGA

Whether it's binge drinking, smoking, eating
junk, water fasting or whatever, it's easy to get
caught up in what everyone else is doing/saying
to do, please others, etc.

I think in Leah's case, she was so desperate for
healing and has seen Andrew Perlot heal his
colitis from a raw diet and then he did a fast
with Doug and made a video about it and then she
saw a talk Doug gave about another man he helped
heal from bleeding colitis and Doug didn't
accurately report the bad stories and she didn't
want to know the risks because she had already
gone down the medical route (since mom was a
nurse) and she knew medicine didn't have the
answer, so even with the risks, she felt the
benefits outweighed them and these two examples
were giving glowing reports as was Ravana and
Kristina Carillo who both fasted with Doug and no
doubt Leah trusted these young women, so she
must've felt that the risk was small.

But, just as in the video, everyone assumes that
everyone else has checked out the risks for them
and they trust the crowds.

Common sense is a misnomer--it is not common.

And there is too much great stories coming from
the community (to promote their own agendas) and
the negative stories get deleted (on here before
Doug was removed and on 30BAD) that there was no
"research" to find had she even done so.

Sure, she'd see the hospital was so far away and
that Doug didn't do testing, but hey, no one else
had ever needed either (at least nobody had
shared the stories that did) that she got the
impression it was safe.

So the take away? If it sounds too good to be
true, then it probably is. What's sad is that
True North would have been the same distance for
her travel-wise and less expensive for her to pay
and would have been far safer.

That is the lesson that all on this board need to
know.

That AND, I don't know if water fasting is the
answer for her problem. She said on her fasting
application that she had had chicken and alcohol
at a recent party she had gone to before her
fast. So if she had done a veggie juice fast I'm
sure her problems would've cleared up.

She must've felt that a fast would give her the
discipline and jump start that she needed to
adhere to the program. I don't know.
