can you still heal yourself if you can't get all organic produce. From all that I have read the healing power is in your dark green vegys. Sprouted nuts and grains. What does a person do in a situation like that?

It is not what you eat that will heal you.
Your body heals itself if you stop making it use its energy on other things such as digesting cooked food and processing toxins.
I would not consider that sprouted grains would be good healing food as they are very difficult to digest.

I was told by Dr. Brian Clement of Hippocrates that Sprouting your grains was a fantastic way of healing.

Lady G - are you currently eating raw vegan? For every step of improvement you make in your diet (SAD -> Vegetarian -> Vegan -> Raw Vegan), it will free up more of your body's resources for healing. Organic produce is definitely ideal, but the majority of people will see major healing changes, even if they are not able to purchase organic all the time.
If it is a matter of availability of organic items, do the best you can, and make sure to not only concentrate on diet for optimum health. Get enough sleep, excercise, reduce stress, etc. If it is a matter of the increased cost of organic items, there are lists out there of which items are more important to purchase organic, based on the way pesticides are applied/absorbed.
Also, make sure to check all your resources. Don't rely on grocery stores if there are other options as well. Do you have seasonal farmer's markets? Ask each stall about their growing practices. Many who are not certified organic will have better practices than big agriculture that supplies the grocery. Also, is there a CSA option at a local farm? If not, could you join with a few other locals in getting a CSA from a little farther away and taking turns to meet the CSA truck 1x/month? Is it an option to grow some of your own vegetables? A well planned small bed can grow quite a bit. Lots of vegetables can be grown in containers. A few can grow in an indoor pot in a bright window. Is there a neighbor with a big garden that you could barter with for a supply of produce? Many places have community gardens where you can rent a plot if you live in an apartment or somewhere without land for a garden.
Just some ideas trying to think outside the box. Hopefully one or more will be helpful to you.
