"I have been so privileged to be a member of the 2016/2017 year long Mastering Raw Food Nutrition Class with Dr. Rick and Dr. Karin Dina! I've been a vegan most of my life and gradually made the shift to eating about 95 percent raw vegan. I thought I knew a great deal about nutrition and living a healthy life, but what I thought was correct information was inaccurate, basing a great deal of what I had read on the internet or on YouTube videos. Having Dr. Rick and Dr. Karin teach us with up-to-date, most current scientific research-based information has been an incredible learning experience. Their years of experience eating a raw vegan diet, coupled with their background as Chiropractors has kept our classes exciting, filled with wonderful life stories, as well as sharing the medical expertise in helping others to heal naturally whenever possible. Our notebooks that we work from are filled with information that we will be able to return to year after year to recall what was taught. Our weekly video lectures that go hand-in-hand with our notebooks are an amazing addition to the course. As I have ADHD and find it difficult to stay focused for long periods of time, being able to view the videos whenever I have time has made this one of the most enjoyable courses I've ever taken. And then, add the weekly Q & A conference calls where we have the option of calling in and speaking directly to Dr. Rick and Dr. Karin, or writing our questions and submitting them ahead of time or as the calls occur have been a gift! We learn even more from our classmates as they ask additional questions and offer their experiences each week. Dr. Rick and Dr. Karin have such passion for teaching accurate information. Their enthusiasm and zest for life comes across in everything they do! I feel as if we have become a family! Being able to write our thoughts, comments, feelings, and additional questions on the private FaceBook Group for this class, was another fabulous perk!

Words cannot describe adequately how much the course has positively impacted my life and those around me. Anyone who wants to take charge of their health destiny should seriously consider taking this class!"

"I'm sad that we are getting close to the end of this class...I feel like we have become a family. Perhaps keep our facebook group active so that we can check in with each other as the years go by and see how everyone is doing. Thank you SO much for all that you have done for us! You are truly gifts from God!!"

Suzanne A., Marcellus, New York

"The Mastering Raw Food Nutrition and Educator Course online has been a great learning experience! Starting from nutrition basics, further developing to subjects specifically related with raw food nutrition, and even expanding to some lifestyle aspects not directly related with nutrition but extremely important for optimal health, this course has exceeded my expectations week after week. With a very complete set of materials (video and audio classes, comprehensive set of notes, question and answer session’s recordings) and the excellent teaching skills of Drs. Rick and Karin Dina, the information is very easily assimilated and is accessible for anyone with no nutrition-related background. Having a scientific background, my usual need to find scientific evidence to support facts has been fully met with this very solid, scientifically based course. In addition, my nerdy curiosity regarding further details on the topics lectured has always been satisfied by Drs. Karin and Rick Dina who very nicely answer all of my questions in the weekly question and answer sessions. Despite the large range of topics covered, the information is concise, very accurate and truthful to the references, highlighting the trends in the literature when contradictory results are present. In addition, by sharing their personal experience as raw foodists as well as their clinical experience, Drs. Dina helped me see how things we learn in theory come down into practice. Everything makes sense! I have attended to each online class with much enthusiasm, I understood the fundamentals and am 100% confident about the knowledge I have acquired along these months. While before the start of the course I had little knowledge about nutrition, now I am able to explain and discuss many aspects of nutrition/health-related issues. This learning experience has empowered me to make well educated decisions that will benefit my health, as well as to help those who are interested in optimizing their heath."

"I was often told “eat that instead of that because it’s better for you” without receiving a rational explanation for that. Thanks to you I can now answer all my “Why?” questions and take confident decisions for myself, instead of being misled by misinformed suggestions. In the future I will certainly look back and realise how important taking this course was for my life. Thank you very much in advance! :-)"

Rita F., Ph.D. candidate, Lisbon, Portugal

"I have been practicing a raw food lifestyle since 1998 when I did an internship at the Tree of Life with Dr. Gabriel Cousens. I really appreciate Dr. Rick & Karin’s scientific approach to the subject of raw food nutrition and have appreciated learning the scientific basis of why this way of living is so beneficial.

I feel that I already knew a fair amount about raw food nutrition before taking the course, but this has definitely strengthened my knowledge."

"The course content is awesome!"

Cynthia F., Santa Paula, California

"I'm lucky to have found the teachers I hoped for. They are thorough and coherent, I find much value in their scientific knowledge (that is mindblowing), and also- they are happy to teach, and that makes learning fun! Thank you Drs. Rick and Karin for this valuable course. I will definitely make it as a stepping stone in my professional development as a natural health consultant and coach."

Yifat M., Herzliya, Israel

"Drs. Rick and Karin Dina are an absolute wealth of knowledge. Their clinical and research experience is very beneficial during the course. The course itself is laid out nicely so topics can build upon each other yet still have variety. The weekly conference calls were just as valuable as the content. These calls allowed us students to ask questions and collectively learn from each other. I know one thing for sure, I would not have the confidence I do now to educate and inspire others if it wasn't for this course. Thank you, Drs. Rick and Karin!"

Trent L., Chandler, Arizona

______________________________

"The content alone is invaluable. No price can be put on this course because it represents their life's work dedicated to living and teaching that you can sustain a raw food lifestyle. You are not getting a course, you are getting their lives. They have taken their medical knowledge, background and experience and have simply put it on paper."

"The course is awesome. "

Gail A., Oakland Park, Florida

"I find very helpful to have the point of view of doctors who are really impartial in their opinions, and who explain things with scientific studies and fact, not philosophic thoughts... and who do not sell anything! I feel very lucky to be able to ask any questions each week and to always receive a good response. I’ve learned a lot, I understand much more now, even though I studied biology and have read a lot of books about raw food before the class. I hope there will be a second year for us to enter even more deeper in the science of raw food. Thanks to you Karin and Rick Dina!"

"I love my weekly videos :)"

Anne-Marie B., Paris, France

Susan C., Monza, Italy

"I've been really impressed with the course, learned a huge amount and enjoyed it thoroughly - I'm not a raw vegan currently but am certainly eating more raw now..."

We received the following email in late April 2017 from one of our students who began in September of 2016:

Subject: Sharing an amazing experience

Drs. Rick and Karin,

I had the most amazing experience yesterday evening and today.  I am in Monaco on business and I had a meeting with 4 business people. It started yesterday evening as I started my diatribe about nutrition! I started in reaction to a comment over dinner from one woman who referred to the fact that her husband ate lots of eggs and meat because he is a body builder. I did not recall the name of the vegan body builder but I assured her that they existed (and I will send her the link).

Then I went on about how the body only needs the daily requirement of protein and the balance will be converted to energy (via glucose) or stored as fat and how the fat is also used for energy!  I assured her that carbohydrates, the preferred source of energy, could also be relied upon as the energy source to build muscle.  Then I turned to the balance between Omega 3's and 6's and the inflammatory effects of Omega 6's.  Then I moved on to cholesterol and why we do not need it and how our liver produces it in the production of bile being clear on how it is needed to emulsify fat - even the fats we get from eating vegetables - with a special comment about the Omega 3's in leafy greens!

The next morning at another meeting they wanted more and after explaining in some detail how the wrong mix of fat makes the structure of cells stiff and rigid, resulting in resistance for hormones, insulin and serotonin (and the further consequences of each) and how too many Omega 6's causes inflammation in our bodies resulting in various disease processes.  I went on to calorie restriction overall and why overeating is bad, having too many free radicals and not enough anti-oxidants is bad and why a meat and egg diet is deficient in vitamins, phytonutrients and fiber. We talked about satiety and I shared how excess weight can cause dysfunctions in the hormones controlling satiety.  I was on a roll and everyone in the meeting listened with pure fascination.  I must admit I was also listening to myself with pure fascination!  

They were all just like I was before I started the course.  They did not know even the fundamentals of nutrition.  How is it possible that so many well-educated people know so little about nutrition?  Knowledge is power and I felt totally empowered today.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!  I have never been as interested in any learning experience in my entire life and I am simply bursting with enthusiasm and passion!  You have changed my life forever!

Best Regards,

Karen P., Azores, Portugal

Here are some comments from our Science of Raw Food Nutrition I students: (Science of Raw Food Nutrition I was the first 12 hours of the curriculum)

I was a bit scared about this class… if I might get that scientific intellectual stuff.  But it was explained in such a good and easy to understand way that I’m really motivated to learn much more about this in my own language, thank you.

After 2 days of this course it is clearly evident why a plant based / raw diet is the optimal diet / lifestyle for a truly optimal, vibrant, youthful life with longevity. A wonderful overview that paints a picture and inspires further exploration and continued education into the science of plant based / raw nutrition.

Kim, Physician’s Assistant, Oregon

You are both so knowledgeable and present the information very well, professionally and easy to understand.  Very pleased!

Olivia, California

An amazing amount of information is covered in this course.  Wow! My life is not the same.  Major benefit = trusting my intuition / body’s wisdom and continuing to learn how to explain (scientifically) my experience / story with others.  I LOVE the binder.  I will read through this and call upon the information many times.

Taking this course has been an amazing experience.  The cravings of my body for certain foods and preparation methods suddenly fall into a scientific context that is both modern and ancient.  I am so grateful for the years of research and clear ability to share the “juice” of Dr. Rick and Dr. Karin’s field.  Thank you!  My brain is full.

Leah, California

______________________________________________________________________________________

Loved the correlation of all the foods, their vitamin components and how they support the body processes.  i.e. how foods replace taking so many vitamins.

Complex biochemical interactions in the body were simplified in an understanding way to grasp the scientific basis of all the benefits of eating a nutrient dense, plant based diet.  It was very exciting, and wonderful to find out how food truly is our medicine.

Dr. Melissa, Wisconsin

Thorough explanations of scientific information in understandable language, without oversimplifying the concepts.

Mei, Belgium

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Dr. Rick and Dr. Karin are so very passionate and knowledgeable about raw vegan lifestyle and nutrition it's contagious and fulfilling. They are great at presenting very complicated info in a very easy to understand and digest and then apply to your life way. They are both very open to questions and conversation for personal development. Overall, meeting them and taking their class, I want to be connected to them for the future, as I believe they are a force of current and new information regularly. Thank you Drs. Dina for such a lovely and valuable experience. I look forward to hearing from you regularly from your email updates.

Alexandra, Los Angeles

The knowledge of Dr. Rick and Dr. Karin is amazing! I would recommend everyone take this class, it is so informative and I learned a lot. Thank you! PS: The teachers are nice and answered all our questions 🙂

Daisy, California

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Fascinating to learn so much that gives me confidence in following a raw food diet and to be able to explain to those who can't believe you can get everything you need to thrive and be healthy eating like this. So thank you!

Celia, United Kingdom

_______________________________________________________________________________________

This class is information packed in an understandable progression linking it all together.

Information was presented precisely and I liked the offering of additional resources (about Dr. Karin).

Really enjoyed the real-life analogies! Entertaining and informative. Fast paced information organized in a way it assimilates well (about Dr. Rick).

Lisa, California

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Dr. Rick and Dr. Karin always used scientific research.  Very knowledgeable!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

This class really taught me many things I didn’t know before.  I like the demonstrations and how things were broken down to easily understand.  You guys were great!  And I like all the info. in a take home binder to refer back to.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Wealth of information on protein, vitamin B12, and calcium too! Keep up the great work, it was perfect! Thank you.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Excellent class!  I highly would recommend it for a great recap/overview of nutrition.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

High level of information delivered by qualified instructors.  Can’t think of anything that could be improved.  Your comprehensive folders were an unexpected bonus.  Your integrity and intelligence were refreshing.  I never felt that your egos interfered with questions or answers.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I thoroughly enjoyed this class.  I’ve absorbed an amazing amount of information, but the Drs. Dina delivered it in a very efficient and accessible way, so I never felt swamped.  They willingly made themselves available for questions and no question was too unimportant for them to answer.  Thank you.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

All of it was very valuable.  I enjoyed how the info. was presented and how you both remained unbiased.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

A lot of info. to soak in, I am very grateful!  Very glad that I have the notebook so I can review and expand my understanding.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

The content was structured very well and I didn’t feel that the teachers were pushing the audience towards 100% as I have seen on other occasions with different speakers.  The class is perfect!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

The Dinas were very knowledgeable and the class was extremely informative.  The class was lively and did not drag at all.  ...  I am looking forward to taking additional courses from Drs. Rick and Karin Dina D.C.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

A wealth of in-depth information with detailed explanations, presented very clearly.  Thank you!  I particularly appreciate your non-dogmatic, open minded approach.  I learned a lot and enjoyed it thoroughly.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

…the sheer quantity of quality information packed into 2 days, by extremely knowledgeable & professional presenters, was outstanding.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Clear explanations of (to me) complex topics.  Class was great!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Doctor Rick and Doctor Karin presented complex information in a clear and concise manner.  It is a wonderful opportunity for those who do not have a background in biochemistry or nutrition. Highly recommended.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I was very impressed with the ability to break down complex and technical info. in terms that were understandable.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I recommend this course to anyone wanting to gain knowledge about the science of raw food!  Drs. Rick and Karin really empowered me and gave me the confidence I needed to share this valuable information with my friends, family, and anyone that is curious!  Thanks you so much for an amazing course!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I expected the class to be boring and very scientific.  The class was so much better than my expectations.  I learned so much that will improve my life.  The information was presented in a way that anyone would be able to follow.  I loved the format of having breaks after each section.  The time went so fast.  I definitely got my money’s worth.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Both of you were amazing.  I felt like everyone’s needs were addressed, and a tremendous amount of information shared.  Because of this class, I definitely intend on taking levels II and III.  I loved it!  Thank you for an informative and entertaining weekend.

Comments from Science of Raw Food Nutrition II students:

I was very surprised with the quality of the content; very professional. As for everything else, even if I would have tried to imagine what it was going to be like I would never imagine I was going to experience learning under you. Stay as you are please because you are perfect the way you are. Really.

Matilde, Quebec

I absolutely loved the course!

Sadie, Texas

______________________________________________________________________________

Everyone needs to take this class! So many myths are debunked through this course. I am so happy I was able to learn more about my body and related to me very well. I'm excited to go home and share the information I've learned with everyone I see!! Yay!

Emily, Utah

______________________________________________________________________________

After gaining all this knowledge I can't imagine not changing my life forever. I was a believer before I came to [well-known raw culinary school in northern California]. Thank you for everything. Also Dr. Karin and Rick aren't in any way, shape, or form judgmental. They are encouraging of ANY positive change in your current diet no matter how big or small it may be.

Anonymous

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I liked the fact that this class was actually scientific – a rare find in the raw food community!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I was very pleasantly surprised to find that both of you are extremely knowledgeable and scientific in your approach.  I enjoyed your debunking of raw food myths rather than promoting them.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Both Drs. Karin and Rick are dedicated teachers on the subject of raw food nutrition.  I am grateful for the information they put together in this course.  Whether you want to gain more knowledge on nutrition or educate others on the benefits of raw food, you don’t want to miss out on this invaluable course.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I liked the vast wealth of knowledge presented with honesty and integrity.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

This is not a course for sissies!  We came away with our money’s worth, and a huge knowledge base.  The Dinas covered a broad range of subject matter, explained it in an accessible format and had high expectations for our levels of comprehension.  I love it!  Thank you!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I really enjoyed learning the nutritional facts about raw foods! Drs. Rick and Karin Dina are very knowledgeable and experienced in the field of raw food nutrition.  I love their non-biased view and all the great detailed info they provided. You feel their love and passion come through and it strikes a cord with me! Thank you for sharing your passions with the world!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Karin and Rick have done an amazing job pulling together a large body of research to support a plant-based, raw-foods diet.  They present the material thoughtfully and with humor.  In addition to all that I learned in class I have an amazing collection of notes and references that I will use again and again.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn more about diet and nutrition in a relaxed, fun, and informative atmosphere. Drs. Rick and Karin really deliver!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I liked the level of professionalism with which the materials have been gathered, researched, and put into non-scientific and understandable English.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Though a registered dietician, I have not worked in the nutrition field for over a decade.  This was a wonderful refresher of things I knew, and a great learning experience for exploring, scientifically, all the many things I always wondered about but never researched myself.  It would have been near impossible to put together all the material on my own that you have provided in this condensed course.  Thanks!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I came here seeking answers and not only did I get those in a clear, unbiased way, I got more than I could have imagined.  I got details about both/all sides of the food arguments and feel like I have the best/most current information to make good/healthy decisions!  Thank you!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Provides a good solid foundation for nutrition (in general) as well as a wealth of information on raw food nutrition.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Dr. Karin had a lot of knowledge.  If I had Dr. Rick as a professor in college, I probably would have majored in nutritional science, and I don’t consider myself a “science person.”  Engaging, insightful, and with a great sense of humor.  I learned a lot and am excited to learn more.  Thank you.

Two amazing teachers!!

Jason, Minnesota

______________________________________________________________________________________

I found Dr. Karin and Dr. Rick very energizing and inspiring. I found the review of the topics very beneficial. Everyone had a different style [of presenting].

I felt that there was a lot of very important information covered at a very good pace. Very well explained and very concise. I feel now that I understand the science of raw food and feel that I could answer questions regarding the same. I would definitely recommend the course to others.

Colette, Ireland

______________________________________________________________________________________

I came here with no expectation, no judgment, and the education you offer is priceless. You are amazing teachers and thank you for doing this awesome work. Blessings.

You both are incredible!! I appreciate all the time that you put into making this easier for us to use.  The PowerPoint is such a fabulous item to have and I feel so empowered.  Thank you!!!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

You both are awesome to be in the presence of.  Thanks for all your education and time preparing this for us to share with others.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I thought this course was exceptional from beginning to end. The overall professionalism, dedication, and commitment to detail was apparent in all aspects of the course, specifically the binders and PowerPoint presentations that the students are given.  These tools ensure that the student feel that he or she is empowered to continue the levels of professionalism and excellence that Drs. Rick and Karin Dina exhibited to each and every student. Thank you so much.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I left this course ready to take on the world!  I now have many valuable tools to work with, and the student presentations and evaluations were very useful in being able to see my own presentation with a critical eye.  Thanks Rick and Karin.  It was great.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Stepping up to the challenge of speaking publicly … was exhilarating, terrifying, and ultimately beneficial.  It was great to be given such extensive feedback from you both and evaluations from my classmates…  I have gained a lot of confidence in my ability and will likely pursue teaching far sooner than I would have otherwise!  Thank you for that!  The student presentations in particular (and this course in general) were definitely to my liking! Evaluating others and myself was very helpful… Thank you for a wonderful experience 🙂

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I liked the opportunity to practice public speaking in a supportive environment.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I liked everything!  Seriously, it is hard to pick just one thing.  I love the material, the instructors, the fellow students, learning things at the Inn!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I learned a lot from watching others do their presentations; it gave me a chance to see how things “look” on “stage”.  It was very helpful.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

The feedback I heard the instructors give to my fellow students was positive, constructive, encouraging, very insightful.  I was always impressed with what they told each student, it was personal and yet some of it could apply to all.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I found the course to be tremendously helpful.  The instructors were very encouraging and supportive.  I was very pleased with my first “talk.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Thank you very much for everything.  Thank you for your time.  You guys Rock!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I liked the chance to practice public speaking and hear/see others methods of presenting.  I liked learning how to edit power point presentations – over and beyond!  Thank you.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

This class is wonderful at giving one the confidence and tools to teach the material learned.  Definitely above and beyond other certification courses.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

This was so valuable!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Experiencing the many different speakers gave me ideas for my presentation and provided more awareness of habits, gestures, expressions, etc. which don’t work as well!  Great group! Great instructors!  Thank you for everything!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I loved how people integrated their personal histories and how intimate the academic process of information dissemination suddenly became.  Karin you are loveliness incarnate!  Thank you for your generous support and your substantial contribution towards my personal growth.  Rick and Karin, thank you for being the raw food nutrition pioneers you are, empowering me and others to make healthy, balanced, research supported, impartial choices to eat living foods.  Ann Wigmore, I’m sure, would have been very excited about the positive, encouraging work you are conducting in the field!  Thank you!

What a wonderful class! Much more information than expected! These two Drs. are awesome. Well worth the time and money spent. I would recommend to anybody interested in getting a detailed perspective of raw food!

Jason, Minnesota

______________________________________________________________________________________

I'm kind of sad that it's all over. I had a wonderful time and learned so much! There are so many  things which make total sense to me now and I want to thank you for  that! Both of you are excellent teachers and wonderful people!

PS: I hope there will be a Science of Raw Food Nutrition IV and other classes to take!

Nadia, Switzerland

______________________________________________________________________________

I loved all the knowledge learned here! It's exactly what I wanted to learn about and I really like hearing all the facts. It makes it easier to want to be raw vegan and now I'll be able to teach other which is exactly what I wanted to be able to do!

Emily, Utah

Comments from Advanced Raw Food Nutrition Educator Course students

It was really helpful to go over the questions. Thinking about different ways to answer them and coming with your own spin on it. Hearing the fellow students take on it was enriching. Real life experience [answering questions about raw food nutrition] in a safe and supportive environment is invaluable.

Mei, Belgium

______________________________________________________________________________

Really learned a lot. It now makes a lot of sense. I have a better understanding. Great learning tool as everyone presents differently. Great to have this experience in a safe environment. Really worthwhile attending. Very enjoyable. Feel I've got a good basis to go on now. Thank you very much.

Colette, Ireland

All the good questions and answers are very useful. Very nice, positive, constructive feedback.
