Must Read: Food is Your Best Medicine by Henry Bieler MD (1965)

You are what you eat and Dr. Bieler contends, based on over fifty years of practice, that proper diet plays a key role in warding off and curing disease.

Features a fascinating interpretation of how the body functions to maintain good health and addresses all kinds of ailments with specific nutritional approaches.

Here is an experienced and very successful physician bequeathing us with his wisdom. Let this book be your primary guide to teach you just how important food is in our lives and how human health works. For eczema and psoriasis sufferers, how toxemia results in vicarious elimination through the skin. How such diseases can be cured via what to eat, when to eat, and when not to eat.

Let us read Dr. Bieler’s message to the readers of his life’s work:

As a practicing physician for over fifty years, I have reached three basic conclusions as to the cause and cure of disease. This book is about those conclusions.

The first is that the primary cause of disease is not germs. Rather, I believe that disease is caused by toxemia which results in cellular impairment and breakdown, thus the way for the multiplication and onslaught of germs.

My second conclusion is that in almost all cases the use of drugs in treating patients is harmful. Drugs often cause serious side effects, and sometimes even create new diseases. The dubious benefits they afford the patient are at best temporary. Yet the number of drugs on the market increases geometrically every year as each chemical firm develops its own variation of the compounds. The physician is indeed rare who can be completely aware of the potential danger from the side effects of all of these drugs.

My third conclusion is that disease can be cured through the proper use of correct foods. This statement may sound deceptively sinple, but I have arrived at it only after intensive study of a highly complex subject: colloid and endocrinal chemistry.

My conclusions are based on experimental and observational results, gathered through years of successfully treating patients. Occasionally I have resorted to the use of drugs in emergency situations, but those times have been rare. Instead I have sought to prescribe for my patients’ illnesses antidotes which nature has placed at their disposal.

This book deals with what I consider to be the best food and the best medicine.

P.S. This book was written in 1965, during more innocent times. They had bad food, bad personal care products, and bad household chemicals, and bad work conditions then… but not as worse as it is today in the 21st century.

I too believe food should be the backbone of your cure protocol, but it should not be your sole cure protocol.

This book may still be available in your bookstore or your online bookstore.
