April 2012 Filmmaker of the Month: Valya Boutenko
While traveling around the United States, Canada, Australia, Africa, Europe, and Thailand teaching about the healing powers of natural foods, Valya Boutenko has encountered many individuals who improved their health naturally. Inspired by their stories, Valya decided to film some of the most amazing turnarounds and share them with the rest of the world.
“In 1994, my family experienced an intense decline in health. Faced with our numerous incurable illnesses, (juvenile diabetes, hyper thyroid, chronic fatigue, arrhythmia, arthritis, asthma, and allergies) my mother began researching nutrition. Finally, we stumbled upon the raw food diet (a diet comprised of fresh fruits, greens, and vegetables). After switching over to a healthful way of eating we were able to fully reverse our symptoms and regain vibrant health. Since that time my family has been dedicated to helping people learn about natural healing and nutrition by writing books, making films, and presenting lectures.”
