Format: Paperback
Jehtro Kloss was a true healer and crusader for nutrition, personal rights, freedoms, and herbalism. This huge book was his lifes work and deserves to be celebrated for what it is: a lifetimes gathering of intense study and dedication to the good of man.

He discusses everything he can think of here. While some of his viewpoints and procedures are now frowned upon - and a few of the herbal remedies taken to the degree he suggests now believed to be dangerous - the large bulk of his remedies and procedures is still regarded as safe and, in some circles, preferable to things available in modern medicine and society.

Everything from his personal life and influences, to farming techniques, crops, growing fruits and vegetables, an extensive listing of fruits, veggies, minerals, vitamins, the history of herbal medicine, herbs, their uses, the body system, the health benefits of water, fish, fresh air, exercise, sleep patterns, oatmeal, fiber, breads, salts, milk, etc is included here.

He even gives his favorite baking recipes, natural ways to make breads, cakes, soups and more, as well as hints on preserving vitamins, cooking utensils to avoid and use, not to mention desserts and beverages.

One really fascinating thing about this book is the large section devoted to water and hydrotherapy. Here we get a rundown of the history of the water cure, various ways to use water to treat - from saunas to foreign bath treatments - temperatures to use when a person is ill to fit their condition, and much much more. Excellent!

This massive bible of sorts ends with various enemas and their purposes, charcoal, guides for people wanting to be a nurse, and different massage techniques!

I have never come across a better book on natural healing anywhere. This book gives herbal dosages and formulas, nutrition advice, hydrotherapy, massage techniques and a host of healthful recipes. It is a complete book on natural healing. Jethro Kloss shows his sincerity in helping people on every page. The author details his experiences in healing people of severe diseases. These incidents are truly remarkable. But I believe they are true. This book is refreshingly honest. Kloss tells the truth about natural healing and does not cut corners with his advice or experiences. This is in stark contrast to the majority of natural healing books today, which are watered down and the authors are afraid of "offending" the medical community. Truth should be told and this is exactly what this book does. A book that deserves to be a classic.

If you have only one book on herbal medicine, this is the one to have! It has a slew of information on herbs & herbal formulas, diseases and illnesses, cures, health, food & drink, healthful life-choices, your body, all aspects of caring for the sick, and much more! - A goldmine of easy to understand information, much of which is unavailable anywhere else! Get the hardcover edition, as you will wear this fantastic book out, because it works!
Also get "The Nature Doctor," by H. C. A. Vogel, ISBN 0879835591, and you'll be amazed at the wealth of knowledge here! Can't live without these two books!

60 of 63 people found the following review helpful By Joanna Daneman #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 24, 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Back to Eden is a classic whole-foods, natural health book that was written in 1939. Jethro Kloss ran santitaria (we'd probably call them spas or detox centers today) in Wisconsin and Minnesota. He lectured, wrote and founded a whole-foods manufacturing company in Tennessee.
If you read Back to Eden, you'll see that Jethro Kloss was way ahead of his time. He advocated a diet high in fruits, vegetables and grains and with minimal meat, caffeine, fat and sugars. Some of his treatments will seem dated (fomentations or hot packs) but some are still in use in holistic healing centers around the world today. He also recommended living a spiritually healthy life, realizing again that health comes from a totally integrated lifestyle, where body, mind and spirit are in harmony.
This is a great book to have if you like reading Dr. Weil, Deepak Chopra or other current popular health authors. It gives perspective into health ideas that have stood the test of time. The home remedies are helpful, too. This is still a great reference for home health and has many good recipes for salads, soups and breads.
