I've read just about every book out there on juice fasting and some are near copies of eachother, while others surprise you and simply capture your heart. "Roger's Recovery from Aids" was one of those books that completely consumed me. It was so good, I read it in one day.
Basically, the book is about a doctor's personal experience with aids and how his friend, another doctor, was able to discover the root causes and offer the most complete healing a person dying of aids can achieve (on earth). Roger's recovery is miraculous. It involves juice fasting in the first leg of the journey but goes on to explain the absolute need for an entire lifestyle change. The book doesn't just address aids, but all ailments that ravage the body of life, health and vitality.
If you'd like to read this book get the newest edition as there's an update in the back from Roger, 10 years after the book was written. You won't be disappointed!
Celery is tough to take. I don't like the taste at all, but the benefits are worth it. My afternoon drink consists of carrots, celery, cucumber, kale and one apple for taste. It's not fabulous, but it really energizes me afterwards.
I hope you like the book! I've actually been inspired to look into medical school thanks to this book. I'm in the process of shifting my degree from law to biology to quicker complete the med school pre-reqs. It'll be a while before I even apply but I am quite excited about the prospects...
LW....I really enjoyed the book. In fact, I read it through without putting it down very often. I noticed the author didn't mention exactly what Juices were used, except for being fresh-squeezed, and for how long. Maybe from fear of the AMA?
Thanks again for the link......WY
Hey, I'm glad you like the book! I'm noticing a lot of what Dr. Bob was going off of reminded me of Gerson therapy. Of course, several doctors and medical researchers during this time teamed together and sort of gleaned information off eachother. I was just reading a newer book based on Gerson and they do give some detailed information about which juices to use for which conditions. If you'd like the title, let me know.
Roger fasted for something like 35 days, I believe. I remember thinking it sounded like a short time for such a horrible disease, but Dr. Bob started him out slowly, first taking the caffiene, then the cigarettes...
Prevention, for one. People now know how it's transmitted. People are also more aware of health now. The 80s were horrible for the body in every way possible. I remember my friends and I living off Koolaid and white bread and our food pyrmaid actually having a junk food section, to be eaten in moderation, of course... People drank, smoked like crazy (in cars and houses with their kids beside them)... No, the 80s may have been fun but we all paid for it in one way or another.
I also think where you live may also have something to do with it. I'm not far from areas that were harder hit, like San Fran. and I still hear of it every now and then. I imagine some third world countries still battle this one daily.
