22 Documentaries That Will Change Your Life

Friday, January 16, 2015


My obsession with health, the planet, & wellness warriors are no secret..
I honestly believe that we all have what it takes to change ourselves, and the planet for the better.
It's really as simple as making a conscious effort about what we put in our bodies.
You should be picky about what you eat.
You should be curious about what your food is made of, and where it came from.
You should fight for the right to know.
You should question ev-ery-thing. 

These documentaries really fueled a fire in myself to do just that.
To strive for a cleaner lifestyle, environment & make eco-conscious choices.
Not only for myself, but for every living thing upon the planet that they effect.
They have made a dramatic impact in my life, and inspire me to no end.
I hope these lend some inspiration to you, on your personal wellness journey...

Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead 1 & 2:
Fun Fact: I started a 40 day juice cleanse immediately after seeing FSND1!

"Focusing on two men whose bodies have been trashed by steroids, obesity and illness, this documentary chronicles the rigorous healing path -- including a two-month diet of fruits and vegetables -- that both attempt in a bid to rescue their health."

"Following up on his 2010 personal narrative about overcoming obesity and illness, Joe Cross details eating and lifestyle changes that can help others match his achievements. He also invites an array of experts to share their perspectives."

Forks Over Knives:
"Focusing on research by two food scientists, this documentary reveals that despite broad advances in medical technology, the popularity of animal-based and modern processed foods have led to epidemic rates of obesity, diabetes and other diseases."

Food Matters:
"With a staggering number of Americans suffering from obesity and other food-related maladies, this film takes a timely and hard-hitting look at how the food we eat is helping or hurting our health, and what we can do to live (and eat) better."

Food Inc:
"Drawing on the nonfiction books Fast Food Nation and The Omnivore's Dilemma, director Robert Kenner's provocative, Oscar-nominated documentary looks at the food industry's detrimental effects on human health and the environment."

Hungry For Change:
"This documentary exposes secrets the diet, weight loss and food industries don't want consumers to know about: deceptive strategies designed to keep you coming back for more. Find out what's keeping people from having the body and health they want."

Crazy, Sexy Cancer:
"Just weeks after being diagnosed with a rare and incurable form of cancer, 31-year-old actress Kris Carr turned the camera on herself as she embarked on the fight of her life. The result is this moving and funny inspirational documentary. In need of experimental treatment, Carr travels the country seeking experts on alternative medicine and, along the way, meets other cancer-stricken women driven to survive."

May I Be Frank:
"Ex-addict Frank Ferrante is a 54 year old, 290 pound Sicilian-American from Brooklyn with Hepatitis C and an unquenchable appetite for women, on the look-out for a quick fix. But Frank wants to fall in love one more time before he dies. "May I Be Frank" documents Ferrante's transformation when he stumbles into the aptly-named vegan Café Gratitude, and over 42 days begins a life-changing journey during which he is coached physically, emotionally and spiritually by three twenty-something staff members on a path of enlightenment."

Vegucated:
"In this documentary, three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured with true tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture."

Simply Raw- Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days:
"Simply Raw reveals, with startling clarity, that diet can reverse diabetes and change the quality of people’s lives. The film captures the human drama and struggle of these courageous individuals making a quantum leap of faith from a traditional junk food diet to a raw vegan diet and it shows revealing moments of nurturing, compassion, and human spirit. It is a film about a life changing journey on a simply raw diet and how nature is the original medicine."

The Beautiful Truth:
"This documentary follows the journey of Garrett Kroschel, an animal-loving teenager raised in Alaska who, after reading a book by Dr. Max Gerson, is inspired to investigate its premise that diet can cure cancer and other diseases. Garrett travels across the country, visiting with physicians, scientists and cancer survivors to discuss Gerson Therapy -- and Gerson's claim that the medical industry has suppressed natural cancer cures for years."

Fed Up:
"Childhood obesity has become an ever-more serious medical issue in the United States. This eye-opening documentary examines the underlying causes behind the epidemic, including the marketing strategies of major U.S. food producers."

Thrive:
"An unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what's really going on in our world by following the money upstream - uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future."

Earthlings:
"Actor Joaquin Phoenix narrates this examination of using animals for the world economy. Footage explores slaughterhouses, puppy mills, factory farms and medical labs, and reveals the roles they play in perpetuating society's disrespect for animals."

Seeds of Death:
"This feature-length documentary exposes the public health dangers of genetically modified foods and features leading scientists, physicians, professors, attorneys and activists. You'll see the deep corruption surrounding GMOs and the nefarious deception being perpetrated against the world."

Killer at Large:
"Obesity causes 110,000 American deaths each year and plays a role in one-third of all cancer deaths. Yet, despite ballooning concerns, little is being done on the public policy level, as this probing documentary explains. Exploring the issue from individual, political, scientific and cultural perspectives, the film features appearances by Bill Clinton, Ralph Nader, Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Surgeon General Richard Carmona and others."

Future of Food:
"Before compiling your next grocery list, you might want to watch filmmaker Deborah Koons Garcia's eye-opening documentary, which sheds light on a shadowy relationship between agriculture, big business and government. By examining the effects of biotechnology on the nation's smallest farmers, the film reveals the unappetizing truth about genetically modified foods: You could unknowingly be serving them for dinner."

Ingredients:
"Narrated by actress Bebe Neuwirth, this engaging documentary weighs the shortcomings of America's industrialized food system against a rising local-growth movement, whose proponents are shrinking the gap between farmland and dinner table. With chefs Alice Waters and Greg Higgins as guiding lights, growers, restaurateurs and consumers around the country, from Oregon to Harlem, New York, discuss their methods for bringing food production back home."

A Place at the Table:
"Using personal stories, this powerful doc illuminates the plight of the 49 million Americans struggling with food insecurity. A single mother, a small-town policeman and a farmer are among those for whom putting food on the table is a daily battle."

King Corn:
"In Aaron Woolf's thought-provoking documentary, friends Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis move back to America's Corn Belt to plant an acre of the nation's most-grown and most-subsidized grain and follow their crop into the U.S. food supply."

GMO, OMG:
"This provocative documentary follows one father's search for answers to the question "What are we feeding our families?" and examines the risks of consuming genetically modified foods, or GMOs."

The World According to Monsanto:
"The film is the work of celebrated award-winning French filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin, whose three years of work on four continents exposes why Monsanto has become the world's poster child for malignant corporate influence in government and technology. Combining secret documents with accounts by victims, scientists and policy makers, she guides us through a web of misleading reports, pressure tactics, collusion, and attempted corruption. And we learn how the company systematically tricked governments into allowing dangerous genetically modified (GM) foods into our diet—with Monsanto in charge of determining if they're safe."
