A Brilliant Life in Darkness

No Comments 09 September 2013

Dear Friends,

Do you remember reading about this man in my book “Green for Life“?

alexander suvorov A Brilliant Life in Darkness“I absolutely have to tell you about Alexander Suvorov, whom I met several times and who became my hero and inspiration for many years. Suvorov became totally blind and deaf when he was three years old. Nevertheless, he was so eager to live his life to the fullest that he learned to speak and to understand what other people were saying by holding their hands.

He graduated from high school with honors and acquired a PhD at Moscow University. Suvorov wrote dozens of brilliant books on philosophy and countless scientific articles about helping blind and deaf children. While being unable to view a single movie himself, Suvorov created three engaging documentaries about his perception of life.

I recall the presentation of his first film. It attracted huge crowds in Moscow in the 1970s. People were deeply impressed by Suvorov’s sincerity and passion. I remember that after the movie was over, nobody left the theater for a long time. We just sat there bewildered, sobbing, and ashamed of our cowardly lives and stupid fears.

Alexander Suvorov, living his life in physical darkness and constant silence, had a dream to travel to other countries. So he learned two foreign languages and traveled to several countries on his own. When people asked him why he went, he replied that he wanted “to see the world for himself.”

Since publishing my book nine years ago, I have been receiving countless requests from my readers to learn more about this man. Until now all of the movies were in Russian and unavailable. Last week, RT-TV presented a 25-minute documentary of Alexander Suvorov in English.

By the way, I emailed my book “Green for Life” in Russian to Alexander Suvorov and he began drinking green smoothies. Maybe you noticed a blender in the middle of his kitchen table on the minute 20:06.

We Are Back from Siberia

No Comments 15 July 2013

Dear Friends,

sergei and valya icefield We Are Back from Siberia
Sergei and Valya at a river iceberg – June, 2013

You have not heard from us for almost a month because all three of us have been traveling deep in North East Siberia. This region is called Yakutia and it is famous for its record number of centenarians, people over 100 years old.

Yakutian centenarians are protected by their local government and it is generally prohibited to visit them for an interview. It took us many months of negotiations and lots of paperwork in order to obtain the official permission along with the addresses of four centenarians. However, they so much enjoyed our visits that we were granted an opportunity to meet many more of them.

We traveled to many villages, some very distant. Most days we spent 18 hours in the Jeep-like Russian car. The roads were extremely bumpy because the ground is permanently frozen in this part of Siberia. Yakutia is officially the coldest populated place on Earth.

The average temperature in the winter in Yakutia is -58°C (−72 °F). For this reason, no fruits and almost no vegetables grow in Yakutia during its short summer. All the water, gas, and sewer pipes have to be run above the ground with a thick layer of isolation materials. All the buildings are built on special stilts. We found ourselves wondering how people can survive in such an extreme climate and even live to be over 100 years old?

We wanted to visit the homes of centenarians and research their secrets. Sergei and Valya videotaped almost a hundred hours of interviews and took hundreds of photos. We also took samples of the water Yakutians drink. We are expecting the results of the water tests to arrive this week.

 We Are Back from Siberia
On the above photo you may see two centenarians and some 90+ years old neighbors, along with their children and grandchildren. They are holding the paintings made by one of the centenarians this year. Most centenarians we met live a creative life and completely serve themselves. We saw a 105-year-old woman who sews daily and threads her sewing needle with thread without the aid of glasses.

We have gathered important data, which sheds more light into the understanding of the key factors that help sustain vibrant health.

To avoid mistakes in our conclusions, we are going to look through all of our materials before we release any more details. So please be patient and you will hear from us soon.

New Research about Russian Centenarians

No Comments 24 May 2013

Dear Friends,

We have been fascinated with longevity for a long time. The world has several locations where people consistently live to be over a hundred years old, these places are commonly referred to as “blue zones”. Eastern Siberia has a blue zone. This year we decided to meet with some of the centenarians. A centenarian is a person who lives to or beyond the age of 100 years.

Sergei, Valya, and I are now in Russia where we are currently gathering information about the locations where these people are living.

People over 100 years old are protected by the Russian government, and we have to receive official permission to meet and interview every one of them. We are now filling out forms and obtaining necessary documents. In one week we will fly to Sweden for our Green Smoothie Retreat. After the retreat we will return to Russia and will start visiting different villages to interview centenarians. We will keep you posted.

The Study is Going to Happen

No Comments 19 April 2013

“If the mountain won’t come to Muhammad then Muhammad must go to the mountain.” (Old proverb)

powered by green smoothies The Study is Going to HappenEver since I started to experiment with the consumption of greens and green smoothies, I wanted to have more scientific research done about the subject. Despite the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of people in the world drinking green smoothies and benefitting from this practice, there is no solid scientific proof to back the health benefits of green smoothies.

Conventional science does not conduct, or almost does not conduct research on this subject. However, many of us want to know the scientific side of green smoothie consumption.

So, according to an old saying, “If the mountain won’t come to Muhammad then Muhammad must go to the mountain.” We are going to conduct our own study. In this particular project our goal is to measure, how the regular consumption of green smoothies influence the performance of professional athletes. The entire study is going to be documented and made public.

We are happy to tell you that our budget is almost met and Sergei and his crew have already began this important experiment. With only two days remaining of Sergei’s Kickstarter campaign, you still have an opportunity to become a part of this great project.
