My Chocolate Story

“Sometime, when we were kids, probably at my Aunt Dee-Dee’s house in Soberly, Missouri, I first viewed the film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. That was my first exposure to the deep, mystical magic of chocolate.

A casual interest in chocolate throughout my life has blossomed into a passion and incredible fascination for the cacao tree and its prodigal product, the cacao bean. Cacao beans are the raw form of chocolate. They are the key ingredient to all chocolate.

For many years, whenever I would come across raw cacao beans in Hawaii, I would peel a few of them and throw them into a smoothie or coconut drink. I never experimented with them enough to realize what I was dealing with.

One day my friend Shazzie and I were visiting our friends Ethan and Eli in Maui. We were peeling cacao beans for a smoothie and Eli asked me, “Have you ever just eaten one?” And the truth was, I hadn’t. So I peeled one and just as I bit into it I had a tremendous download of information hit me. It was a life-changing experience. I was surprised to discover how incredible it is to eat raw cacao beans themselves – to eat Naked Chocolate.”

Excerpt from: “Naked Chocolate”

Raw Cacao Benefits

  1. Cacao is the most pharmacologically complex food source known in the Amazon jungle, containing an estimated 1,200 individual chemical constituents!
  2. Cacao contains phenylethylamine (PEA), that has been dubbed the “love chemical”… probably because PEA seems to help create feelings of attraction, excitement and euphoria.
  3. Cacao beans contain a 10% anti-oxidant concentration level! This makes cacao one of the richest sources of antioxidants of any food.
  4. Due to its unusually high content of alkaline magnesium, cacao is the most alkaline of all nuts. Magnesium supports the heart, increases brainpower, causes peristalsis (bowel movements), relaxes menstrual cramping, helps build strong bones and increases alkalinity.

From “Naked Chocolate”:

  1. Chocolate does cause, primarily through the action of anandamide, anti-oxidants, magnesium, phenylethylamine, serotonin, theobromine, tryptophan and unknown neurotransmitter modulating agents the following:
  2. An increase in general health
  3. A lessening of depression
  4. A lessening of stress
  5. Enhancements of pleasure, including sex

In our experience, and after review of the literature and research, we have arrived at three conclusions about the medicinal value of cacao:

  1. Cacao, like ginseng, is a potentiator (it amplifies the affect of medicinal substances taken with it). It is probably the ultimate alchemical delivery vehicle of medicinal substance into the human body.
  2. And also, like ginseng, cacao has an enormous array of its own medicinal components such as anandamide, antioxidants, magnesium, phenylethylamine, serotonin, etc.
  3. Unlike highly herbal ginseng, cacao is a tasty food that can be commonly eaten. Cacao crowds out the need for other foods. Cacao is an appetite suppressant allowing us to eat less and live more!

 

Chocolate Course Outline

“Did you know that the cacao bean is the most revered of all rainforest foods? Cacao is the most pharmacologically complex food source known in the Amazon jungle, containing an estimated 1,200 individual chemical constituents (according to Joel Brenner’s research in her book The Emperors of Chocolate)! This complexity is why chocolate cannot be synthesized artificially.”
David Wolfe, Naked Chocolate
