The Ethos and Origin of RAW Forest Foods

Ryan Wade

Transforming Illness into Wellness: The Birth of RAW Forest Foods

RAW Forest Foods began with a personal journey toward achieving restored health, wellness, and vitality. In 2010, I found myself grappling with the aftermath of Lyme Disease, which brought about a weakened immune system, chronic fatigue, and a sudden feeling of premature aging. Seeking answers, I stumbled upon an out-of-print book that introduced me to the therapeutic benefits of Pine Pollen. The healing potential of Pine Pollen resonated deeply with me, yet there was no place to purchase it. Determined, I started wild-harvesting and processing Pine Pollen, crafting tinctures and powders solely for my own healing. After writing about my experiences, I started to receive emails from people asking about the tinctures and powders I had created. And that's how RAW Forest Foods was born. Today, RAW Forest Foods is dedicated to offering the finest quality, wild-harvested Pine Pollen and other forest foods to assist you in achieving your own restored health, wellness, and vitality (learn more here).
