Finally, a photo that's neither posed nor photoshopped (except for background) Val at 72, shot spontaneously by a friend.

Val Archer

Born Valerie Kathleen Archer in Cape Town, South Africa, 1948. Graduated B.A. from Rhodes University in 1968, where I drank alcoholically from my first drink. As a hippie on psychedelic drugs in London 1972 I went vegetarian. Have voraciously read health books & magazines for 50+ years (except when I was too drunk to see the print). In New York 1988 I got sober (at age 40) and in 1992 painful toothaches led me to embrace -- slowly over many years! -- the high-raw living plants lifestyle. You'll find my books at and at If you need professional help, I recommend these Free classes on healing the plant-strong way: (1) Food For Health Masterclass, with best-selling authors John & Ocean Robbins, (2) Tackling Type 2 Masterclass, with Brenda Davis, RD, (3) Healthy Heart Masterclass, with Mimi Guarneri, MD, and (4) Brain Breakthroughs Masterclass, with Dean and Ayesha Sherzai, MDs.
