Dr. Parthenia’s Raw Food Rejuvenation Support Group
Newsletter # 3  April 12, 2007    Phone: (818)763-8802 or 913-4942   email:
Please note that I am in the process of legally reclaiming my birth name of Parthenia Vurteese Onassis, which was changed when I was adopted.  Parthenia is another name for Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom and Vurteese is Latin for truth and virtue.  I would like to begin the transition from Dr. Grant to Dr. Parthenia, the name I am using for my new book. 
Note: I need everyone’s phone numbers in the group so that I can contact them in the event of last minute changes.  I only have emails for some of you.  It will also be helpful if everyone would RSVP for any of the events listed in this newsletter, especially for the raw food cooking classes, as space is really limited, and I need to prepare enough food.  
Professor Janice Witt, from Mission College has a severe form of diabetes and has been raw now for 28 days.  She has lost 13 pounds and is looking forward to losing more weight.   I recommend that Janice incorporate more liver detoxing herbs into her diet such as spirulina, chlorella, raw garlic, cilantro, etc. and do sweat lodges or the dry sauna as often as possible to sweat out the toxins in her system from the medications she has taken over the years.  She should also do the “Drug Bomb” that is in my book to thoroughly cleanse the prescription meds out of her body in order to experience more rapid weight loss.
The following email was sent to me from Liza:
After a lifetime of struggling with my weight, I grew so ashamed and inhibited because of my increasing physical size.  I have tried diet after diet, only to regress to the same habits because I was truly addicted to everything I put in my mouth.  As I became bigger throughout the years, my self confidence and self worth decreased dramatically.
Now, after only a few short weeks of being a part of your support group and losing 26 pounds, I can proudly say I am an aspiring raw "foodie." I enjoy and even crave greens and salads, foods that only a few short weeks ago never existed on my plate.  I finally understand what the saying "you are what you eat" really means.  If your diet only consists of cooked, dead food, how can you expect to yield energy and vitality from that?  When you eat live food, you get nothing but living enzymes. 
For the first time, I now eat to satisfaction without any guilt.  Raw food is so sensual I thoroughly enjoy everything I eat. In fact, each time I eat, I now see it as an opportunity to heal my body and spirit.  Changing the way we eat is really the next frontier in regaining our health and our lives.
I want to thank you for giving so much of yourself to afford us all a real chance at true health.  I have shared my new found lifestyle with my friends and family and the results are so amazing that people cannot help but be attracted to such an efficient means of becoming healthy without counting calories or deprivation.

April Morales is on the 8th day of her ten day fast using the Master Cleanse.  She looks absolutely fabulous, has lost a dress size, her skin is radiant and she reports feeling fabulous.
I got April started with raw foods and detoxing after a recent surgery.  She came to me faint, weak, trembling and losing a lot of blood.  The fast, detox and vitamin and mineral supplements have worked miracles in her recovery. 
Here’s an email April sent me during Spring Break:
I have made an incredible change in my life for my life by no longer eating meats of any kind. I also have incorporated raw foods into my diet and have not craved sweets (i.e. chocolate) since I started using the coral calcium with magnesium.  Oh, and I am doing the 10 Master Cleanse Fast.
I would like to congratulate Angela for losing 37 pounds and encourage her to continue to take her life back … 
Dr. Parthenia, from me to you, a BIG THANKS
My apologies to anyone who showed up at the Farmer’s Market on Easter Sunday; I only called those whom I had spoken with in person to tell them I had just gotten information from Linda about Dr. Michael Beckwith, (from The Secret), also the founder of Agape International Spiritual Center, who was holding a special service at the Universal City Walk’s Ampitheater on Easter Sunday. 
The ampitheater was so packed people had to be turned away.  The positive energy in the room, however, from over 6,000 people, was incredibly inspiring and uplifting, so much so I was moved to make the 11 o’clock service a regular outing for myself and anyone from the group who wants or needs an ongoing dose of the teachings from The Secret, which I believe will be helpful in speeding up our transformation and rejuvenation process. More importantly, it is rewarding to be a part of the 100th Monkey Principle, and a growing .001% of the world population, which is all that is needed to create a tipping point to push us out of separation and into a spirit of oneness by raising our consciousness with the highest vibration on the planet, unconditional love; love is the actual meaning of the word Agape.

See the following note from Christina for details about Glen Ivy.
Hello Dr. Grant:

The Zen Zone at City Walk today was a lot of fun. Thanks again for introducing new and fun experiences to us.  We love it and we love you.

Here is the information about the Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona:

25000 Glen Ivy Road
Corona, CA 92883
1-888-clubmud (1888-258-2683). 
It is about 58 miles from LA, but it's a nice drive.  You can go to and check it out.  They have a lot of useful info.  They have other locations near by, but the Corona location is the only one with the hot springs.  The others are called day spas.

They are open Monday-Saturday 7AM-7PM and Sundays 8AM-7PM. It is $35 Monday-Thursday and $48 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  I am sure we can get discounts, I did last time. 
Also, they sell tickets at COSTCO for a discounted price according to their website. Since Jorge is an employee at Costco I was thinking perhaps he can hook us up! :)

The admission price includes unlimited use of all the pools (salt pool, Greek bath, etc.), mineral springs, the mud pool, saunas, different steam rooms with aroma therapy, lockers, showers (nice ones).  They also have water aerobics in the main pool.  It is very nice and I love it there. I think we will have a lot of fun as a group. 

So let's grab our bathing suits, shorts, thongs that go on the feet, and towels and go pamper ourselves!
Please RSVP at 818 763 8802 or email at
For the past decade, I have been searching for an affordable machine that can restructure distilled or reverse osmosis water (which is pure but is acidic, unstructured and has no minerals) and turn it into hexagonal water, which detoxifies and purifies the blood and other vital organs because the molecules are much smaller than unstructured water, thereby allowing immediate absorption into the blood stream  A major factor in aging and disease is lack of hydration from water molecules that are too large to be properly absorbed.  I finally found a machine called the Vitalizer Plus that oxygenates, mineralizes, alkalinizes and restructures water. 
The Vitalizer Plus has been tested and approved by Dr. Masaru  Emoto as having long term stability.  You may recall that Dr. Emoto was featured in the film What The Bleep Do We Know.  He also wrote Messages From Water.   Purchasers of the machine get a free $200 analysis of their vital organ systems, by a medical doctor, before and after drinking the water.  The results are immediate and amazing.
Dr. James A. Kholos, founder of Curing Old Age Disease Society says that “The Vitalizer Plus represents a near miracle when it comes to supporting the natural detoxification processes of the body.  In my experience, the unique structured water produced by this machine provides superior hydration and an enhanced ability to remove metabolic wastes from the cellular components of the body.  Both of these factors are critical for healing and for maintaining natural vitality.  I highly recommend it as an addition to any health care program. “
Dr. Bruce H. Shelton, MD, says that “All water is not created equal.  Qualities like structure, mineral content, and surface tension determine how effectively water is absorbed across cellular membranes to hydrate the body.  Since hydration is such a major factor for optimal health, the quality of the water we drink is of paramount importance.  Testing with devices designed to accurately measure the state of health in an individual clearly show that water treated with the Vitalizer Plus improves a number of health parameters – within minutes.  Tests conducted in our office, before and after drinking one eight ounce glass of water treated in the Vitalizer Plus, showed significant improvement … The Vitalizer Plus is clearly a positive step towards achieving better health.  It is a significant addition to a complete program of health care and maintenance.”
Another system I was getting ready to buy cost $1,200, (I have a link to that system in my book under resources) yet it only alkalinizes and ionizes the water while the Vitalizer restructures, mineralizes, alkalinizes and oxygenates the water. The Vitalizer retails in stores for $680 and up.  I invested the money to become a distributor so that I can make the machine available for the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer, $495. I had to agree not to sell it for less than that price.   It comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty.
I was paying over $100 a month for bottled water; thus, the machine pays for itself quickly.  For a family of four, it pays for itself even quicker.  The machine is small, plugs into the kitchen counter, and only takes 9 minutes to restructure a half a gallon of water.  The mineral filter lasts for six months or more and retails in stores for $75.   Janice Witt bought a Vitalizer Plus today.  Those who purchase a machine can schedule a free analysis Mon-Fri from 2-5 p.m.  which is the only time the doctor is available.
