Max Gerson- medical doctor who actually cured many cases of cancer with his strict diet of raw foods, lots of juices, plus loading potassium and Iodine and removing sodium, also lots of coffee enemas. Jewish German who came to America during Hitler, met opposition with US medical system. Fascinating author, well documented. His daughter still operates clinics based on Dad's protocols.
Linus Pauling- Nobel prize winning biochemist did lots of research on Vitamin C during the 70's. Claimed Vitamin C cured cancer but later other contemporaries couldn't duplicate his findings. Still, high doses of Vitamin C do seem to assist the healing process.
Ed McCabe- fill me in. :-)
Richard Schulze - easily the top herbalist in the world. Healed himself of congenital heart disease, a burned off hand, and a totally destroyed knee with natural methods. Practiced in California for 20 years until the fed govt shut him down for practicing medicine without a license. Sounds like he helped patients cure anything. Still runs American Botanical Pharmacy and lectures. I use many of his products.
Jon Barron- took all the top guys, studied them thoroughly, and came up with a best of the best plan which is really great. His book, Lessons From the Miracle Doctors, is a definite must read, even a read-me-first.
