The world has lost a great man. Steve ‘Sproutman’ Meyerowitz has passed away from a car accident this week. ‘Sproutman’ Steve was dedicated to educating and providing an incredible service to the community with his vast knowledge and experience in healthful living. ‘Sproutman’ Steve was the author of several books on sprouting, wheat grass, food combining, and juicing. He was an advocate of green living, living foods/raw foods, and a vegan lifestyle.

****I am reaching out to other community leaders to create a memorial for him in a few weeks. If you are interested in attending or contributing please send me a message by email  donna@gravityeastvillage.com.

Steve was a legend. Always professional, caring, kind, compassionate and a gentleman. He was a tremendous example of what he preaches on living a clean healthy lifestyle. He was an inspiration to so many people including myself. There is no one that can replace him. He was a friend of mine and I am devastated to know of his passing.
I am sending my deepest sympathies to his wife, children and all loved ones.
Rest In Peace My Friend and Thank you for following your dreams and making a difference in the world.
-Donna Perrone

 

BIO: Steve Meyerowitz

Steve Meyerowitz was pronounced “Sproutman” by Vegetarian Times Magazine in a 1979 feature article that explored his 100% sprout diet. While over 2 decades time, most diets change, Meyerowitz is still a big “believer” in healthy diet and lifestyle.
Meyerowitz got interested in natural foods after a 20-year effort to treat chronic allergies and asthma with conventional medicine. He made dramatic         changes in his diet and within 2 months of eating a strict “living foods,” vegetarian diet, his lifelong symptoms vanished. He continued to practice a 100% raw foods diet (nothing cooked, packaged, canned, frozen, or processed) for five years. During that time, he also experimented with other extreme diets such as fruitarianism (just fruit), juice fasting for as long as 100 days, and briefly, breatharianism (no food, no water).

Meyerowitz’s innovative kitchen gardening techniques and the cuisine he developed from them gave rise to a “School for Sprouts.” He began teaching indoor gardening 12 stories above the streets of New York City. He called his no-cooking school The Sprout House, since so much of his cuisine included vegetables from his kitchen garden sprouts. Meyerowitz invented two home sprouters, The Flax Sprout Bag and a tabletop greenhouse called Sproutman’s Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. He also supplied his growing kits and a full line of organic sprouting seeds via mail order.

Meyerowitz has since sold the mail order business, and he and his family now breathe fresher air in the Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts. Much of the information from his teaching years have been related in his books. He has the most popular books on sprouts, including Sprouts the Miracle Food, Sproutman’s Kitchen Garden Cookbook, and Wheatgrass Nature’s Finest Medicine, to name a few. But he also has other books on subjects such as fasting and raw juice therapy.

Meyerowitz has been featured on PBS, the Home Shopping Network, TV Food Network, and in Prevention, Better Nutrition, and Organic Gardening magazines. In 3 minutes on QVC, 953 people ordered his cookbook and Kitchen Garden Salad Grower.

I just finished planting our garden and hope to host a healthy potluck party this summer and would love for you to join us.

Here is some news and inspirations coming your way from my wellness center.

We hope you are doing well and hope to see you soon!

Take care,

CNN: Morgan Spurlock, the Academy Award-nominated director of “Super Size Me,” tells compelling stories from an insider’s perspective on a diverse range of topics – from America’s trash epidemic to living on Bitcoin.

 

Morgan and his crew visited GEV last week to film an episode featuring our Infrared Sauna! Donna Perrone got to to interact with Morgan on camera. Stay tuned to when the show will air on CNN.

When Was Your Last Colonic?GEV Treatment Room

It is that time of year that we are enjoying the outdoors and want to feel light, energetic and attractive. It is interesting to me how people take care of their teeth by seeing a dentist twice a year for a dental cleaning. However, many of us overlook the need for an intestinal cleanse to clean the internal plumbing!

Dr. J.H. Kellogg, who administered colonics to his patients back in 1917 touted the benefits in the Journal of the American Medical Association. He wrote about how we are literally poisoning ourselves into illness when the bowel evacuation is deficient.

When impacted waste matters are along the bowel wall, toxins can be reabsorbed and can affect the body’s tissues, cells, immune system and can eventually trigger illness.

Our colon can be looked at as a conveyor belt. We eat a meal and we should get something out. Most people are lucky if they have one bowel movement a day. There are so many reasons why we become constipated. Think about the about of food you consume and how much comes out. Come in for a Colonic and all of our experienced Certified Therapists can discuss with you ways to improve digestion and feel great.
