How to Heal Arthritis and Osteoporosis Naturally at 73

August 13, 2019

John: Alright, this is John Kohler with
and this episode is actually interview my friend, Cecilia Star, who I actually met at
a Woodstock fruit festival, and she got into a health journey about six years ago and started
eating a plant-based, fruit and vegetable-centric, raw food diet about three years ago. And the
reason why I wanna have her on is because she healed even, you know, at a much more
mature age several different diseases that were ailing her, you know, by literally just
changing her diet. And also to show you guys that it’s never too late to start, if you’re
having problems, because you literally – the old adage holds true, you are what you eat,
and absorb! Because if your digestives is not working, you’re not gonna absorb it.
So let’s hear from Cecilia, a little bit about her journey. So, Cecilia, why did you
change your diet even after being, you know, what, over 65 at that point? Cecilia: Yeah, I was way over 65 when I started
my journey. Cause I’m 73 now, and so I started it ‘cause I was working, I had so much arthritis
in my hands, in my feet, in the back of my neck, it would just burn. And in my field,
I needed to have my hands, cause I’m a hairdresser, so I need to feel good and stand on my feet
all day long, and so that’s why I decided to look into being a vegetarian, and then
a vegan, and after a vegan to a raw vegan. And that’s when I went online to look up
James Colburn’s arthritis shot years ago on Larry King Live, I heard him and I remembered
that. And so I went online, looked it up, and it was a vegetarian diet. And so I decided
to give it a try. And that really, really, really helped. When I did that, it didn’t
take long. And my arthritis in my hands and my thumbs and the joints just hurt so bad,
and in my feet, that I – and I had cramps and I had the pains in my big toe, and those
– I had varicose veins, a lot of things going on. Plus I was dealing with the last
fifty years’ worth of yeast overgrowth from too many antibiotics. And with this…and
that is cleared up now, since I switched my diet. Which is great. I’m happy about that. John: Wow. So yeah, just by simply changing
your diet, you know, your body will allow itself to heal. So what is your, Cecilia,
how did going from the vegetarian to the vegan to the raw vegan, did you see incremental
improvements all during that time, or why did you finally end up going raw vegan? Cecilia: Well, that’s a good question. I
switched to being a vegetarian and then to a vegan, and then I used to do some cooked
food, and so then I went on a vacation, and I was online, and I was looking for…and
I went down to Costa Rica to the Farm of Life down there, not knowing that they were a raw
vegan type of group place there, and it was wonderful. I had the time of my life. That
was the best trip I’ve ever taken. It was emotional, it was spiritual, it was healing,
it was fun, it was active, ‘cause I like to be active, we went ziplining, we went hiking,
we jumped off cliffs, off of waterfalls, went swimming, and it was just a wonderful, wonderful
time. And that’s when – and most of those people from there except for me was all from
the Woodstock Fruit Festival in New York. So I came home and I decided I was gonna look
up, the next year, I went to the Woodstock Fruit Festival. And that’s where my journey
just keeps evolving and going as time goes on, and as I’m growing and getting into
it. So, that’s my story. John: Wow. Yeah, that’s totally amazing,
I mean, in Hawaii Woodstock, you know Cecelia would go on hikes with us and she would keep
up with the kids half her age, just about, man. Cecilia: And skydiving, also. John: Yeah, she sky — she’s crazy, man!
But yeah, these foods, they keep you young, that’s how I’ve – I’ve been doing
this for 20 years, and most people think I’m about ten years younger than I actually am.
You know, I’m young at heart, I don’t know if it’s because of my diet or because
I’m just that way, and Cecilia’s the same way, she plays tennis three times a week,
still has a full-time job, she’s working and does her gardening and all kinds of other
stuff, so if you wanna see her garden, be sure to check my other YouTube channel,,
actually, there’s a really good piece and episode on Cecilia with her garden, because
growing her own food is very important. Let’s talk about that, how important it is growing
your own food and what differences have you stopped or started growing and incorporating
some of that food you grew into your diet. Cecilia: Well, to me it’s very important
to get the vegetables as fast as you can, eating them, so you get all the nutrients.
Cause once it’s been picked, you don’t know how long it’s been in the grocery stores,
and then it loses nutrients the longer it’s been cut. So when you can grow your own and
you can go right outside and I just love it! I can go every morning right out to my own
garden, ten feet away or less, and come in and pick it and wash it and put it in my smoothie
or juice it and I just feel the energy, and that’s what I look at the food when I buy
it – is that leaf nice and strong or is it weak and limp? How much energy does that
have? Cause if it’s a strong leaf and it’s not weak and limp, it’s got a lot of energy
in it. Well, that energy goes into my body, then, and that gives me energy to sustain
my life. So to me it is really 100% important to me that I have as fresh as possible. And
organic, ‘cause I’m growing organic everything, thanks to John Kohler and people like him,
that I can help me with the knowledge on how to do that, ‘cause I knew nothing, I never
thought sixty years ago or even twenty years that I’d be on this life journey. And I
just so enjoy it so much. John: That’s awesome, yeah, I mean one of
the things that’s really important to me also that I sense with the food is the life
force energy in the food, whether you wanna call it prana, chi, or biophoton, this is
something that science hasn’t really researched yet. But, you know, in my opinion, life begets
life, and we wanna eat foods as fresh as possible, because not only do they have the life force
energy, but they have more phytonutrients and phytochemicals as well, which I have identified
as some of the most important nutrients in the food. Now, I know you play tennis and
you do skydiving and you— Cecilia: Skydiving, hiking and— John: Yeah, hiking and— Cecilia: This morning in the rain! Three miles! John: You jump off cliffs, aren’t you scared
about breaking some bones? And didn’t you have, like, osteoporosis, and how has the
raw diet, and the fruit and vegetable diet affected that? Cecilia: Well, also I like doing herbs, I
really believe in the power of herbs, so I make my own little herb concoctions here and
do that with the food, so – that’s what I think that’s important to me, so. John: And how ‘bout – you had osteoporosis,
or— Cecilia: I did, I had osteoporosis, which
I reversed and I’ve got proof of that. That because they do the bone tests, and the bone
scans with that all the time, I’ve had for years, and the other reason why it’s really
important to me to eat healthy is because I come from a large family and my father died
of colon cancer, a brother died of colon cancer, a sister died of colon cancer, and I’ve
got a lot of cancer in my family, and I know one to believe I don’t wanna wait till I
get it before I start doing something and changing my diet. I’m into preventing, to
make prevention is, you know, I don’t wanna go to the doctor, doctors don’t make you
well, your body has the power to heal itself. And I’m not short of drugs, but I may be
short of greens and fruits. And so as much as that stuff that I can get into me, the
better. And juicing – I can juice so much more greens than I could possibly eat if I
tried just eating it or having a sandwich with a little piece of lettuce or one slice
of tomato on it, when I could eat a whole box of tomatoes or a whole deal of celery,
a whole stalk of celery, I could juice all that and drink it at one time. That’s what
I feel the body needs and it’s gonna regenerate, ‘cause the body has the power to regenerate
itself if you give it the right foods and the right exercise and a spiritual as well
– that’s why I like to pray, I don’t…I like to go out to the ocean, to the beach,
walk on the beach, sit on the sand, or go hiking in the woods, be with nature. To me,
that’s what God made and the sun, that’s – the sun has the power to heal. And that’s
why it’s so important to be in the sun, and everybody today wants to hide away, everyone’s
in the house all the time, and that’s why I try to go outside and do as many fun things
as I can. John: Wow, yeah, I mean she had so many important
parts and points to make in just that little section, but one of the most important to
me is because I come from a situation where I almost lost my life and the doctors didn’t
have a heal or couldn’t cure me, you know, when I was in my health crisis, you know,
I came out and was a lot more serious about my health and that’s why I focus on a certain
specific kind of raw food diet. I mean, a raw food diet, much like a vegan diet, could
be healthy or unhealthy, there’s plenty of junk food vegans that could have Oreo cookies
and Coke, I mean, those are vegan foods, but they’re not healthy foods in my opinion,
so you need to be more than just vegan or more than just raw, you need to eat a healthy
diet. So a healthy diet to me is— Cecilia: Fresh. John: Yeah, fresh! Foods that you could grow
yourself, fresh fruits and fresh vegetables, that should be the center of your diet and
you should focus on these foods the most. Trying to eat the minimal amount of calories
while still maintaining and meeting your caloric needs, but by eating tons of different phytonutrients
and phytochemicals, these are the disease protective properties of a plant that people
– and some people, even on a raw food diet, are just not getting because they’re eating
high-calorie raw foods like too many nuts and seeds, and too many bananas or high-calorie
fruit, dates, or fried fruits and whatnot. Cecilia: Processed, boxed vegan foods– John: Yeah, boxed, you know, kale chips and
all these things. We need to really eat vegetables, lots of vegetables, leafy greens, and the
fruits. So let’s talk about this, Cecilia, what’s your daily diet like, on a daily
– I mean, you’re a small lady, so you probably don’t eat a ton of food, like as
much as I do, but you know, what do you have to let people know, like if they’re older,
you know, in their senior years, what they might wanna start with or what they might
wanna do if they wanna do something like you’re doing? Cecilia: Probably the best way to – I tell
my friends who listen to me and what I do is start with smoothies. Smoothies are really
easy to make, everybody has a blender at home, that’s all you need is a blender to do that
with, and you can add apples to it, cucumbers, and I was asked this morning, cause the girls
I was hiking with asked me, “Well, what do you do for a treat for yourself?” and
I said, well, I make a really good smoothie out of bananas – a frozen banana, and some
almond milk, and I put a little ginger in there, and little turmeric root, both of those
are fresh roots that I use, and you could put a little vanilla in there and blend that
up and it’s like heaven! Ice cream! Especially with the frozen banana in there and a little
bit of almond milk, and you could even put some cinnamon in it, there’s all different
kinds of things you can do, but mostly, every single morning, I make either I juice my greens
or I make a smoothie with my greens, and I use cucumber, sometimes I put a carrot in
it, and I always use celery and cucumber – and a green apple in there, and then I put – I
try to
every day, use a different green, so I can rotate my greens, I don’t eat the same green
every day, one day I’ll have two bunches of Swiss chard in there, what you buy in the
grocery store that they’re all twisted up in the twister, I’ll put two of those packages
in there that day with the whole cucumber, about a half a stalk of celery and green apple,
and I take it to work with me or take it to the tennis courts, and oh my God, you should
see what the girls say at the tennis club when I come with my green drinks there, and
I’m drinking that on the court, and they’re all, “What are you drinking?” and it’s
really funny. And I enjoy it, so. And I know what its benefit it’s doing me, so that’s
why it doesn’t bother me what other people say about it, because I can feel the difference.
And that’s what my morning is, and then in the evening, I’ll either make another
smoothie or I’ll make a salad, something to that effect. John: Awesome, yeah, so I mean it is really
simple and easy to eat healthy. Right? Just smoothies or juices, salads, just increase
the volume of the fresh fruits and vegetables you eat. So now that you guys learn what Cecilia
eats, I’m gonna ask her just the final question today, so do you have any hints or tips for
people out there that are maybe not yet eating copious amounts of fruits and vegetables that
you’d like to give them that you learned over your journey into health and getting
rid of your arthritis and osteoporosis and controlling your yeast infections and whatnot? Cecilia: Start out slow. When I first started,
I kept going back to cooked foods, or I would go back to a salmon or a fish or whatever,
but then I just slowly weaned myself up. It’s really hard to stop and do it at the point
where I am today, I could never have done this six or seven years ago, all at once.
So the point is start slow, but steady. And when you make a mistake and you eat a sandwich
or bread or you go out one time with your friends, just get right back into it. Get
back into it, and it gets easier as it goes. And then you learn more, and you talk to other
people, like my friend John here who has taught me so much, and I’m watching how he’s
cooking his – or how he’s fixing his foods and stuff, and preparing it. So that’s how
I learned, from other people, how they do them. But best tip is to go slow and do it
in degrees, different degrees. Just get a little better and a little better and a little
better each time, and six years later, now, it just comes easy and natural to me, and
I have no desire to ever go back to eating any kind of animal, they say, “don’t you
eat eggs?” and I said no; “dairy?” – to me, dairy is the worst thing you can eat.
Cause I was so full of mucus in the head, I had tetanus in the ears, my hearing has
gotten better, my eyesight’s gotten better, but the ears, the hearing has gotten a whole
lot better. I was gonna go deaf, like most of my clients now, they’re all on hearing
aids, men and women. Dairy products really fill our heads with a lot of mucus, and that’s
what caused a lot of headaches, hearing loss, sinus infections. So it’s really important
to try to wean yourself off of the dairy products, and that includes yogurt as well, ice cream,
everybody says, “well, yogurt’s supposed to be so good for you,” but it still comes
from an animal. All the stuff, we forget where the food is coming from, the butter and the
yogurt and the ice cream and the cheese, nobody ever thinks where cheese comes from. And so,
you just gotta go slow, wean yourself off of it, and you’ll eventually get there. John: Yeah. Wow, that’s one of the things
I like to say, by the inch, it’s a cinch, by the yard, it’s hard. Start off slow and
steady, you know, just start by changing your breakfast. And yeah, keep your same lunch
and dinner, but at your lunch and dinner, have more fruits and vegetables, so have an
extra piece of fruit or two or three at lunch, and have an extra salad or side salad at dinner,
and slowly but surely, you know, make the fruit meals a bigger part of your lunch, and
make, whatever, your sandwich smaller. And same with your dinner, make your salads bigger
and make your chicken smaller and smaller. And of course, always the breakfast, the best
time to have the raw foods, in my opinion, you know, fresh juices, green juices like
I had this morning or fresh fruits or blended smoothies. Definitely the best, so yes. I’m
glad to have met and know Cecilia, she’s doing an amazing job, hopefully she’s motivated
some of you guys and she’s having her own successes with her health, and are you beating
your other peers at tennis and stuff, you can kick their ass ‘cause you’re on a
healthier diet and you have more energy, more vivacious, and quicker reflexes! Cecilia: Yeah. These kids I play tennis with,
believe it or not, are half my age. Most of them are either half my age or could be my
grandkids, but I’m playing tennis with and beating them. So my kids get a big kick out
of that, they tell everybody that, and they’ve seen me play tennis and they know I play with
people that are half my age, ‘cause I’m one of the oldest ones on my tennis club that
I belong to, and I’m on the team with. And people, they can’t believe, when they’re
talking about their kids and then I talk about mine and they can’t believe I’ve got kids
as old as I have. So. But I do. I love them. John: Yeah, you wanna kick ass at tennis,
kick ass at life, kick ass at MMA or whatever, go plant-based, vegan, fruit and vegetable-centric,
man. You’re gonna kick ass just like my friend Cecilia here. So hopefully this has
motivated you just a little bit to include more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet,
if it did, hey, please give me a thumbs up to let me know, I’ll be back to visit Cecilia
next time I’m in the area, and interview her some more, and share some more words of
wisdom with you guys. Also, be sure to check my pass episodes, I have four episodes now,

  • Reply Thegoldenratio February 23, 2016 at 5:42 pm

    Food for thought: ok so packaged 'vegan' and 'vegetarian' products in the grocery store are abundant where I live. Fact is 6 corporations in america control 80-90% of the packaged foods at the store (and other toxic products also). So isn't it ironic that serious vegans/vegetarians buy products from companies with their arms all over the grocery store and alot of their products contain animal ingredients or straight up meat?

    Wow thank you I have tears of joy, I am sick of being sick all my life and at age 57 it is not good and I have been trying so hard, so vegetarian to vegan I will try. It is hard I do not live near food and being ill is hard to grow it. Keep sharing, blessings. HOW IS YOUR TEETH HEALTH? hAVE YOUR TEETH HEALED?

    How did she heal her yeast overgrowth? Just through food?

    Those who eat the most beans have less bone breaks n more bone density healing. Man eating too much meat is like a dog eating too much chocolate. Meats a backup food only. If we were omnivores our heads would be as big as our mouths when we yawn. Were not. Were Herbavores MOSTLY but in a class of our own

    Let her come back in some more years and she will be nutrient depleated and no you two do not look younger, vegans always look older actually. Especially raw vegans. It is like a sect mentality and why is it always you are into yoga and mix in false spirituality and new age_ If this is really about a diet…there is nothing wrong and unhealthy that will impact her arthritis in any way if she also ate wild salmon, organic eggs, bone broth which is so healing and other great food..she must take supplements like all vegans do to get their daily needs of all vitamins especially b12! and heard vegans sneak in raw liver in their smoothies maybe thats what she do. Dont believe these lies people..test all things and hold fast to the good!

    This is a wonderful video, amazing lady and John, you are a real gentleman, sitting quietly and letting your guest speak – too many hosts now just keep interrupting and do not allow people to speak – very rude.
    I am 'almost there' started off vegetarian, then vegan now working on raw vegan diet.
    I have some osto and a little arthritis and hoping this will clear up. I too am in my 70's and found your guest most inspiring. I am writing this a couple of years after the video and I hope she is still doing well.
    Thank you John.

    If this diet keeps you young then why are so many vegans and raw vegans getting premature aging and basically losing their brain power they can't think they're losing their teeth they're losing their hair

    I've been gluten and dairy free for 18 years, WFPB for the last 3. Yes I feel better. Has it healed my arthritis and fibromyalgia? Not a chance.

    She was not clear about whether the coburn diet heloed her arthritis she kind of went onto a tangent about her symptoms but did not day what actually healed her

    I’m 58. Vegetarian attempts prior. Then went vegan 2 years ago. Now 5 months into raw vegan diet. This wonderful lady is absolutely right and such an inspiration !!! Sciatica and high blood pressure relief for me. I can’t believe how much of a difference raw foods have made for my health. When I started taking green smoothies to work every day, my coworkers were asking me “What is that?” But I’m happy. I do better work than the young people at my job. Also, I was a caregiver for my parents and grandmother for 20 years. They all passed. With the history of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer in my family, I decided to make a change. I didn’t want my elderly years to end up with arthritis, HBP, diabetes, etc. and endless trips to see doctors and endless medications, I’m going to start a garden next, although I live in the Northeast. But I have 3 acres so no excuses. I also started sun-gazing to connect more with God, Thank you John for this video !!!! 😃👍
