Shazzie is a TV presenter, author and CEO. She's a director of three companies, a single mum and a Visionary In Paradise.

Shazzie's TV show is the first in the world about raw food. It was commissioned by The Active Channel, Europe's biggest health and fitness channel.

Shazzie is the author of five books: Shazzie's Detox Delights, Detox Your World, Naked Chocolate (co-authored with David Wolfe), Evie's Kitchen and Ecstatic Beings (co-authored with Kate Magic). Shazzie is also the Managing Director (CEO) of Rawcreation Ltd (trading online as Detox Your World). She's also written two ebooks: the free Raw Britannia (part of her Make Raw Food Mainstream campaign) and the free Shazzie Whispers.

She has created several life altering programs:

Her hugely successful program Shazzie Speaks is a hit with many customers worldwide, and a great place to start when changing your life.

Divinity In A Box gives you the key to finding the life and work that you are destined to do. Shazzie is more than qualified to teach you this having created several revolutions and a seven figure business out of thin air.

Her entry level raw food program, New 2 Raw is for people who are new to raw food, or restarting it.

Her exclusive membership web site Shazzie's VIP Room attracts visionaries from all walks of life.

Shazzie is a writing and recording artist for Diviniti Publishing, where she has released several guided meditations, available via iTunes and Audible.

Shazzie has created a best selling raw food app, for the iPhone, 97 Reasons To Eat Raw Food.

Over the past decade, Shazzie has presented lectures and workshops around the world at the most prestigious of places, including the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. She rarely does lectures now, prefering to spend time playing with her daughter.

Shazzie has been featured in the media (TV, radio, newspapers and magazines) worldwide discussing raw food, superfoods, detox, raw chocolate, breastfeeding, natural parenting and being a Visionary In Paradise.

Shazzie works a maximum of ten hours a week, using the rest of her time to play, laugh, love and be. She lives the life of her dreams in her own beautiful cedar home, nestled in a countryside community of around twenty other houses on twenty-three acres of shared land in East Sussex, UK. She even manifested spring water coming out of all her taps! She raised her daughter, Evie, on a raw vegan plus breastmilk diet to the age of four. Evie, who was born in 2004, is unvaccinated and a "free range child".

About the Author

Born in East Yorkshire in 1969, Shazzie had a typical northern lifestyle and diet in her formative years. As an adult, she suffered lethargy, depression, brain-fog, period pains, bad skin, and aches and pains -- until she created a detox and rejuvenation programme for herself.

Extract from the introduction

Once I'd discovered that the secret to a fantastic life was to detox my world, I can only describe the subsequent changes I experienced as magical. I became my natural weight, lost all sight of depression, gained a new outlook and direction in life. For the first time ever in my life I was truly happy, healthy and wise.

It's the wisdom I've learned that I want to share with you in this book. You might find some of the facts unbelievable -- if you do, try out my accompanying suggestions and make notes on how you feel. That's the only way to know whether to believe I've really found the secret to living life joyfully and in harmony.

When I realised this wasn't just a physical journey I began to take an interest in yoga, which took me further on my own personal development path than I thought possible. I also discovered a simple set of ancient exercises used by Tibetan Buddhist Monks which really do turn back the clock, and I share those here with you, too.

What you have in your hands is everything that I've learned about detoxing naturally. A natural detox is important, as it keeps us in an "earth rhythm" that stops us feeling separate and isolated from all around us. Many of today's problems in our society (and increasingly the whole world) stem from feelings of disconnection. Re-establishing that connection with nature gives us more power to live the life we've always wanted, while creating a sustainable and responsible way of living.

Why detox?

If you've eaten a typical western diet (meat or vegetarian) all your life, you will have taken in more toxins than your body can remove. Eventually, you may start to feel under the weather or ill. The illness can take many forms, such as acne, arthritis, depression, heart disease, lethargy, menstrual pains etc, but the cause remains the same: your body contains too many toxins and is struggling to expel them, because it wasn't designed to deal with such a high intake on a permanent basis.

By lightening your diet and other toxins that surround you, you allow your body more freedom to remove stored toxins.

Your body will thank you by giving you more energy, healing itself of diseases, and clearing your brain so that it's cobweb-free.

The beauty of eating this way

When detoxing, you are not denied lovely food. If you like, you can even have pudding for every meal! Eating your favourite fruits, getting massaged, having saunas, swimming, playing and practising yoga sounds more like a pampering health farm than a strict regime, doesn't it?

Eating detox food is certainly not going to make you feel confined to a life sentence of boring food and hard exercise. I will reveal how this simple way of life can provide you with great health benefits as you read through the sections of this chapter. As you eat more food which has a built in feel-good factor, it becomes easier to believe that it's possible for you to step into your magnificence.

Fibre, protein, cabbages and eggs!

I grew up amongst the F-Plan, Weight Watchers, Slimming Club, The Grapefruit Diet, The Egg Diet, Slim-Fast and The Cabbage Soup Diet. At any time, at least one member of my family or friends was trying them out. Most of them lost weight. None of them kept the weight off. I quietly observed the yo-yoing of my loved ones, while pondering "There must be a better way".

These days we have the Atkin's, Zone and Blood Type diets. We also have many dieters thinking: "Maybe as the old diets didn't help me keep my weight off, then these new ones will?"

As quickly as one diet is devised, another totally different one knocks it off the number one bestseller slot. But as they're all so very different, and as we humans are pretty much similar, they can't all be right. Let's have a look at what we know about diets...

Format: Paperback
This book is great - it is very well written and easy to understand. It is absolutely perfect for people starting out. It will have you eating raw food the very next day and itching to convert fully in no time.

I have been a strict veggie for about 18 years, dabbling in the world of veganisim when I have the will power to avoid cakes and milk chocolate (damn you milkybars!) so the transition to raw food diet is probably easier for me than somebody who eats and enjoys animal products on a regular basis.

Summer would be the perfect time to start your detox - eating raw food in warm weather will ensure that you are adjusted to your new diet in time for the winter where you automatically start craving hot comfort foods.

The only downside is that a number of the recipes need a dehydrator and although this piece of kit can be picked up for around £100 it means you may have to save your pennies for a bit before you can fully enjoy this book to the full. The alternative is to put the food in the oven with the door open and some items need to be dehydrated for 6+ hours. I don't know how the cooking times will need to be adjusted for this method but I would be concerned about my electric/gas bill and the possible fire risk as I don't have the time to watch an oven for this long :)

The recipes are delicious but took me a few days to get used to as I am so used to eating cooked, processed foods. The benefits of increasing your fruit and veg intake are almost instant. After a week or so you will feel energised and become more inclined to reach for a piece of fruit or bowl of veg instead of a chocolate bar or bowl of chips! And if like me you have a sweet tooth and no time (or are short of cash!

Having been lucky enough to meet the author of this book I can vouch for her passion, energy and commitment to the raw food/detox lifestyle.
This book is not only brimming with recipes that are non-terrifying for those new to detox but is also full of useful information (for example stockists, websites, books) as well as success stories and a thorough overview of the whole detox experience. It provides an informative, balanced argument for healthy living and, whilst it is naturally biased to one side of the debate, never ends up being preachy.
If you want to kick - start your new lifestyle this is the best place to start.

Format: Paperback
This was my very first raw food book, and I have to say I loved it. It really inspired me to look at my lifestyle and habits, and as a consequence I have changed many things in my life. In particular, more raw and organic food, and I have changed a lot of my beauty habits.

Her style is easy to read, and is very accessible for anyone, regardless of how far along they are on the raw, or green journey.

Also, check out her website to read six years worth of her journal entries as she went raw and built her business.

My only criticism of this book is the really appalling index. When I want to refer back to find a smoothie made with cocoa for example, I have to look under "Q" for "Quickie chockie milk" which is incredibly unhelpful. I hope they make this a bit more user friendly for updated versions.

This book is all you need to become a normal, fit, happy and healthy human being. It shows you all you need to do, and how to do it, and thoroughly explains why you need to change.
If you think you do not need to change then this book will explain why you should if you want to live your life to the full - happy and without any sickness or pain - as we were meant to live.
It goes on to explain why you should become a raw vegan food eater and gives lots and lots of delicious recipes to tempt you with. I've tried most of them and they are truly delicious.
In a nut shell this is the one book to have on your book shelf, although it will probably spend most of its life either in your hands or on a worktop as you try out yet one more recipe.
Shazzie, the author, is the prime shining example of the lifestyle she shares in her book, if you've ever met her then you will know exactly what I mean.

Format: Paperback
It's brilliant. A full and comprehensive wholsitic lifestyle book, full of inspirational suggestions, factual info, recipes and several detox plans to fit even the busiest agenda. This book is a gift -- so many times I have been frustrated not having a book which I can truly recommend to clients without losing them all after the first session!!! I have been seeking something professional enough and yet not too whacky. THIS IS IT. The wrapping and content of this book is enticing and full of excitement. This book held me all the way through and its near 400!! odd pages.
I felt personally re-inspired and had a few questions answered too. It reminded me that we are all forever students of life.
Detox your World is a expression of harmonising livelihoods and service -- sharing of facts without undue controversy. The testimonials were amongst the best I have read. I was moved by this book -- deeply moved. It has also given me an insight into how much work goes into creating and offering a service with so much information and inspiration without becoming boring at all.
For me it supersedes all the books I have read. I feel totally comfy with insisting that all my clients buy this book. I feel delighted to now have a book that I feel proud and joyous to give and share with friends and family too.
A book that guides people through transformational choices and seeks to invite the best from each person.
I felt a deep appreciation and a realisation that to talk about this book would be a joy and a sincere expression of pride in the auhoress. Its already vibrating with a powerful potential of touching families and all beings who seek wellness of life.
