I like Brian Clement because he is a clinician. You can go to him with real problems and get real answers. This is why he allows the 75% to 100% range of raw. Also, you see him offering herbs and supplements. THis is real world, not pie in the sky idealism. I have heard enough of Brian's lectures and read enough of his books to see how educated he is and I don't care what university he graduated from. I graduated from the same acupuncture school as many others, but some acupuncturists from my same school are good at treating pain and others are mediocre to weak. It all depends on how much extra time you put into perfecting your art and science. Clearly Brian has completely immersed himself in his naturopathic field.

When you go to someone like Robert Lockhart and Doug Graham who tell you to fast when you can't eat 100% raw, this is not realistic or practical. Also, look how Doug deals with infections. He has no tools for them besides fasting and whatever is in fruit and vegetables. Then when they get bad, he calls in the allopaths. What kinds of tools are those?

As for omega 3s, where I live, I have the luxury of eating purslane (and other varieties of portulaca) year round, so that in combo with chia and flax, I don't see the point in sardines. Calcium is better had from high calcium green juice and B-12 is fine from yeast and probiotics. But that's just where I live. I won't hold it against you if you couldn't afford these items where you live. And that is really where medicine comes in. Some people are very limited to what they can eat, and so medicine is required to balance the side effects. For example, if someone was forced to eat out of a tin can daily, they likely would eventually need medicine.
