“If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.” Hippocrates

When you eat raw, handmade, sustainably sourced chocolate you feel its magical powers of total bliss, euphoria and the ultimate love…. and when you eat Gnosis Chocolate you will never go back to eating the processed, fake chocolate ever again!

Gnosis= Knowledge of the heart, experiential knowledge, intuitive knowledge.

My interview with Vanessa Barg, the founder of Gnosis Chocolate, was one that got lots of compliments from my listeners and lots of “Wow, I did not know that! Great Show!” comments from my fellow colleagues at WGCH Radio.

Thank you, Vanessa, for sharing such a wealth of information about the differences between raw Cacao and processed chocolate.

The health benefits of raw Cacao are very rich, indeed. The very minerals that 80% of the world’s population is deficient in, such as Magnesium, are found in abundance in raw, unprocessed Cacao.

However, all of these minerals are destroyed by using refined sugar, milk/dairy, chemical additives, or any other aggressive processing that you find in the mass produced chocolate….. read labels! You will be really disappointed to see how the majority of chocolate bars out there [including some other “Organic” labeled chocolate] have either refined sugar or ‘evaporated cane juice.’

Vanessa explained that we get way too much sugar in our diets to begin with, and the negative health implications of this is clear to see with the many degenerative diseases that are caused or exacerbated by the intake of Sugar. Sugar FEEDS the parasitic, unhealthy bacteria that every person today has to consciously rid their bodies of by way of CLEANSING and also simultaneously making food choices that heal the body.

Gnosis Chocolate infuses their handmade, raw cacao chocolate bars with vitamins, herbs, and minerals such as Maca Root, Siberian Ginseng, Ashwaganda, Gingo Biloba, Camu Camu, Lavender, Gotu Kola, Burdock, Blue Green Algae, and so many other awesome, yummy gifts for your God given body!

God’s garden is the gift of life. We are only now getting to realize that the industrial revolution took human beings, for at least the last three generations, away from this magnificent Garden of natural, organic food and humane thinking of our relationship to this earth and all life that was meant to symbiotically live in harmony. This is the very essence of life, health, longevity…

But why is the medical paradigm so ignorant of this and aggressively condescending of this ancient knowledge? By the way, the “Allopathic” medical regime that is the primary source of what is termed ‘Health Care’ in America today was spawned from the chemical/warfare industries before and during World War II [and primarily from German warfare technology].

It’s time to get back to our Mother Earth and demand, with our consumer dollars [and with our collective voices to our elected political leaders] that we are entitled to a world with healthy food and water… and future generations are entitled to this, too!

Children should be eating Chocolate, and not exploited by conglomerates that mass-market cheap, chemical-laden Chocolate to the developed world–

When you buy RAW Cacao Chocolate, you are voting with your dollars to STOP child labor in the third world… and the Chocolate industry has quite a wretched past with exploiting child labor.

Raw Cacao Chocolate is NOT exploitive, and does not use child labor for the product.

Cacao is a nut that grows on a Tree! I did not know this, but it makes sense. And I also did not know that when you buy Raw Cacao you are encouraging native growers to PROTECT their natural forests that would most likely be destroyed for destructive money-making industries such as raising cattle or soy.

There’s everything to feel good about eating RAW Cacao…. especially when it’s made with love like the special chocolate from “The Chocolate Girl” @ Gnosis Chocolate!

Available at Whole Foods or

P.S. My favorites are the Pomegranate Acai and SuperChoc!
