More About the Author

Andreas Moritz (born January 27, 1954) is an author, lecturer and practitioner in the field of Alternative and Integrative Medicine. He is the author of over a dozen books on various subjects pertaining to holistic health and is most well-known for his books The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush, Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation and Cancer is not a Disease. His ideas have appeared in USAToday.

Moritz was born in Stuttgart, Germany. He began his career in Europe as an iridologist with special focus on identifying and addressing the root causes of illness. He has also specialized in using fine art as a healing modality. Much of his life's work has been dedicated to understanding and treating the root causes of illness, and helping the body to naturally heal itself.

In the mid-1990s, he began publishing self-help books on alternative medicine and mind/body/spirit integration. From the age of six, Moritz experienced a number of severe illnesses such as juvenile arthritis, arrhythmia, anemia, abnormally low blood pressure, frequent fainting and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Although his main fields of interest were architecture, music and athletics, most of his time was spent in trying to understand the causes of his own illnesses. As an adolescent, Moritz began studying diet, nutrition and various approaches to natural healing and well-being.

In 1970, Moritz began to practice meditation and Yoga to treat low blood pressure. By age 19, he had alleviated his symptoms through his practice.
After completing his iridology training under his uncle, Dr. Harry Kirchofer, a leading iridology physician and naturopath in Germany, in 1980 Moritz proceeded to study and perform research on mind/body medicine at Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in Switzerland.

In 1981, as part of his training at MERU, Moritz began his studies of Ayurvedic medicine. To learn from some of the worlds' most renowned physicians of Ayurveda, including, Dr. V.M. Dwivedi, Dr. Balraj Maharishi and Dr. Brihaspati Dev Triguna, Moritz traveled to New Delhi, India. From 1982-1983 Moritz introduced heads of state and members of governments in Ethiopia and Kenya to more holistic approaches to health care than were available in these impoverished African countries at the time.

In 1988, Moritz graduated in the Japanese healing art of shiatsu at the British School of Shiatsu in London, England. Later in 1991, he finished his Ayurveda training and qualified as a practitioner of Ayurveda (vaidya) in New Zealand.

Moritz lived on the island of Cyprus from 1985-1998. From there he traveled extensively, lecturing and providing alternative healing modalities to governmental leaders who had fallen seriously ill, including the late Prime Minister of Greece, Andreas Papandreou.

In 1998, Moritz immigrated to Minnesota, in the United States, where he married and began to offer his services to the American people. Since taking up residence in the United States in 1999, Andreas has been involved in developing a new and innovative system of healing -- called Ener-Chi Art™ -- which attempts to target the root cause of chronic illnesses.

Moritz's other books include, Lifting the Veil of Duality - Your Guide to Living without Judgment, It's Time to Come Alive; Heart Disease No More!; Simple Steps to Total Health; Diabetes - No More!; Ending the AIDS Myth; Heal Yourself with Sunlight; Feel Great, Lose Weight; Hear the Whispers- Live your Dream; and the newly released title, Vaccine-nation: Poisoning the Population, One Shot at a Time.

Moritz now resides in the Carolinas. More information at www.ener-chi.com

I bought this book about 2 years ago and it turned out to be more than I dared to hope for: it demystifies the big "C".

The author explains the conditions that promote cancer and the physiological mechanisms by which it develops; he provides valuable insight on possible causes and discusses non-toxic health options targeted to reducing/eliminating the conditions the promote cancer, thereby creating a physical, emotional and energetic environment conducive to healing. The language is clear and accessible, the data is presented in a organized and logical fashion, aided by visual sketches to help the reader conceptually understand and absorb the information.

What I loved about this book was that it tackles cancer by heading toward the root cause--the most effective and time-saving (and cheapest) way to solve any problem--championing a healing approach as opposed to the conventional treatment of symptoms (which in my experience tends to produce side effects, inconsistent efficacy and shorter-term results). When you want to kill a weed, you don't just hack off the branches and spray it, you rip it out at the root. No other articles or books on cancer that I have read before or since this one has employed this very simple, fundamental logic.

I found this book so informative and empowering that I went back and purchased two more copies: one to give to a loved one who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and the other copy to keep for lending out to friends and neighbors.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has cancer or has a loved one living with cancer.

I am an RN and now currently a certified colon hydrotherapist. Going through nursing school, taking classes over the past 30 years to renew my nursing license, and reading many books on health over the years, has not given the amount of applicable, understandable and scientific information regarding true health care as this one. We are being sold a bill of goods when it comes to cancer and my eyes are now opened for good. I will be sharing this book with as many people as I can. Thank you Andreas for your forthrightness and bravery.

If you have the feeling that there may be a better way to treat cancer than with toxic (lethal) chemicals and surgery, you owe it to yourself to read this book. Though the vast majority of our doctors and nurses are caring, well-intentioned people, our medical system has been hijacked by big Pharma. Andreas Moritz is one of many brave individuals willing to risk the scorn and attacks of the current medical establishment to bring us this message of self-empowerment and common sense. I don't criticize anyone for the health care decisions they make, we all must do what makes sense to us, but I encourage everyone to not be driven by fear or prejudice. When you unearth the facts, you will be surprised.

On a side note, I'm disappointed in the Tag Suggestions Amazon lists for this book, quackery, disinformation, and the like. Could they be a bit less prejudicial, please?

Cancer. Even the word evokes terror in most people's mind and heart. I was one of those people after finding a large mass in my breast. Knowing that I had read enough about traditional medicine and knowing that I would never subject myself to being poked, prodded, radiated or burned, I started my search. I came across this book and I'm so thankful that I did. Not only is is packed with very important information, it also gives you peace in knowing that cancer is not an ugly monster that has invaded your body to kill you. It's a wake up call. It's there to show you how to love yourself and how to take responsibility for your own health. Our bodies are amazing self-healing machines if we just rid ourselves of all the toxins we put in it. Thanks Andreas, for putting this important information out there.

This is a very good book.
The whole concept that cells are being starved of oxygen and food and not able to remove wastes is
a very valid possibility. First, I do not know of anyone who actually would ask the question
"are the capillaries working?". There is this pervasive assumption that cancer just "happens" to
one. NO it does not. He makes the observation that cells will do anything to survive, and when
the support system (capillaries) is not working then what? It seems possible that drastic measures would
be done by cells to survive. Which would include anaerobic operation and regression to more primitive kind
of cell life.

There has been experiments where cells were put into perfectly supporting environments (artificially) where all food and oxygen were available and all wastes were handled perfectly. They discovered that the cells became immortal under those conditions. The experiment was allowed to continue over 30 years with no cell death!!
So don't tell me that disease just "happens". There is always a cause. And our so-called normal way of life is
so far from perfection that there seems no resemblance to perfection whatsoever. So called health is not that at all. The claim of perfect health with "normal" methods is fraudulent.

He also writes about why the capillaries fail. It is all about diet and lifestyle.

He gives recommendations of what to do about this situation where cells are not being supported.
Please note these recommendations are far less dangerous than any of the status-quo methods of treating cancer.
I.E. the slash and burn approach to cancer. Our medical professions standard operating procedure for cancer
is a terrible joke.
