I am so excited to announce my new website Radiance Central! It has been a long time coming!
The idea for Radiance Central was born one year after I created Raw Radiant Health. As you can already tell, I love making videos and teaching people about nutrition and optimal living. I love motivating, inspiring and educating people, and I want to do more! I have always found that the raw food lifestyle attracts people who are already well along their path to good health – what I would call the “advanced health enthusiasts”! Most people getting into raw foods already know the detrimental effects of the processed food that has tainted our food supply. They already know first hand how having a diet of fresh, wholesome, living foods not only makes one feel good, but makes one start living good! However, unfortunately, the majority of the population is still living in the dark – addicted to sugar, junk food, fast food and refined foods, completely unaware of, or lacking, the tools required tomake healthy adjustments to their diet and lifestyle. Everyone has to start somewhere, and I was inspired to create an online resource for those just starting out on their health path, getting back to basics, and learning about their options without necessarily having to follow one particular diet.
You all know I love talking about food and nutrition! I have many other passions as well, including: natural skin care, personal development, and taking one’s life as far as it can go – reaching unlimited happiness and lifestyle fulfillment. It has been my strongest desire to create a website and video blog that encompasses all these topics and is about finding a good lifebalance – not only about food, but also about the other elements that help lead to personal happiness and the fulfilment of one’s potential. I am excited because with Radiance Central I will do that very thing! My goal is to create a website focussed on “everything radiant”, not just food!
What will happen to Raw Radiant Health? Will I continue making videos for Raw Radiant Health and hosting the online programs? Well, at first I was planning to keep both websites going, but, as you all know, a year ago I made the announcement that I had decided to add animal products to my diet due to a severe vitamin B12 deficiency. I had been taking oral Methylcobalamin B12 supplements for over a decade, but my body was not absorbing the vitamin it needed. I had a choice: take monthly vitamin B12 injections for the rest of my life,or, get the vitamin B12 naturally from food, which meant adding animal products to my diet.As a consequence of the decision I made, I received e-mails and online comments from people who strongly objected to my promoting a raw food diet or having any connection to it. I had left the “club”!I understand their feelings and I will move on, but I will not stop delivering the message of good health and happiness, which includes eatingnatural and whole foods, both raw and cooked. I will continue doing recipe videos on Radiance Central’s Video Blog which will include raw food recipes, and I will continue Coaching and hosting the monthly online 10 Day Juice Fasting Program and 7 Day Raw Food Challenge because I know the strong healing and health promoting powers these programs have. Change for good reasons is a good thing, and I embrace it!
So on that note, I want to thank all of my subscribers for theirboundless and loving support for Raw Radiant Health. I hope you all will join me at Radiance Centralso that together we can continue on our journey to greater health, happiness and RADIANCE!
All my love,
Natasha St. Michael

Yesterday someone posted a comment on one of my videos asking if I ever get mad!!! Of course I get mad, I even get upset too!! And I even have moments where I get annoyed, angry, frustrated, sad, bored, anxious, stressed, etc.. That’s part of being human, all these emotions come with the package!!
I find with as much information out there about being healthy, a lot of times in the raw food movement there is so much emphasis on the food and people forget that our emotional wellbeing is just as important, if not even more important than the actual food we eat. If we want to thrive and be super healthy, we’ve got to be super happy too!
It’s amazing how our bodies are always trying to keep us healthy, keeping us going and no matter how we treat ourselves, our bodies are very forgiving. But when you reverse the situation we are always so hard on ourselves, never satisfied and the negative self-talk can be overwhelming. It’s time to stop and appreciate ourselves, where we are and all the effort we are making. Enjoy and celebrate life no matter where you are!!
