5.0 out of 5 stars Still my favorite nutrition book after 25 years July 20, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm happy to see that this enduring classic is still in print. I wrote about nutrition for the health magazines for years, had all kinds of information at my fingertips, but when it came to my own health, this little book offered the most effective answers. I still go back to the Bieler diet when I need to lose weight, increase my energy, or avoid health problems that seem to be looming on the horizon. A friend of mine was a patient of Dr. Bieler's in the late '60s and reported that the good doctor was healthy, strong, radiant, virile, and working a full schedule into his eighties; apparently he took his own advice. Bieler did his research at about the same time that penicillin was introduced, so his work never got the recognition it deserved. Now, decades later, the public realizes that the so-called miracle drugs have frightening consequences. Bieler shows how to keep your body healthy and free of disease and offers dietary solutions to many ailments. Basics for everyone: No salt, sugar, honey. Have "Bieler Soup" daily: zucchini, green beans, parsley, celery cut up and simmered. These most alkaline veggies balance your system. Read the book for details.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Food as Medicine Change My Life November 28, 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dr. Bieler's book is a must read for anyone interested in maximizing their health. This book teaches a holistic path of how the body uses food and how food can heal or destroy the body. I came across this book after suffering through my teenage years with chronic fatigue and severe athritis. This book explained why I was suffering and how to reverse my condition. After 1 month on the Bieler path, I found my symptoms improved 50%. Now, after 9 months, I feel like a completely new person. THIS BOOK IS MY BIBLE OF HEALTH. READ IT.

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dr. Bieler's book totally changed my life and outlook regarding the power and importance of proper nutrition as a cure to maintain optimum health and that drugs are merely harmful chemicals that can damage our internal organs. The sad truth today is that society is conditioned to rely too heavily on medication, even though they are warned yet still cannot follow this SIMPLE philosophy. Their time will come when they will face a lot of health degenerative challenges which all thanks are owed to killer drugs regardless of dosage (be it penicillin, insulin injection, or Tylenol etc). This is the book that everyone should read if they wish to live a healthier, longer life. I give credit to Dr. Bieler who lived ahead of his time. His wisdom and knowledge is evident as this book is written in a very straightforward style for readers to understand. How much this book holds your interest will depend how much you care about your own health. We only have one body (health) in a lifetime. It is worth your investment and money in your own pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr Henry Bieler February 10, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to give to a friend. I so want people to know of his wonderful work in healing. I was a patient of Dr. Bieler's for many years. I am now 85 years old. I know the outstanding work the good doctor did. He cured my sister of ovarian cancer in the 4th stage by diet. A very large promionent hospital gave her 6 months to live. His diets were different for each patient. I think the book explains the human body so well, if one reads it carefully. To know him was to love him. A genius of a man, dedicated to helping mankind.

5.0 out of 5 stars SHEDS LIGHT ON INNER ENVIRONMENT AND GERMS A++++ February 17, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
You can always tell really good information that has been found through the true science of research, study and actual use. It withstands the decades of fad diets and medical phases. That is what is offered in this book. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK if you are sick of the non-sense that we are fed everyday through media and orthadox medicine. We are supposedly the most medically advanced species on the earth yet we are the sickest. This book shows us that what is considered normal and healthy in our society, really isn't. It gives great information on the link between diet and disease. It was a relief to read a health book that doesn't rant and rave about how to build the immune system (the current fad in alternative medicine). Obviously building the immune system is not the only key to preventing disease. If everyone followed the advise in this book, companys that prey on our bad health would go out of business.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is your best medicine March 8, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are wondering why you've never heard of this book, it's because the pharmaceutical industry and medical profession are not making any money off of Dr. Bieler's recommendations. The style of the writing may also make people think that this book is oversimplified or not valid, based on unscientific methods or dated terminology. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. Everything is based on empirical evidence that Dr. Bieler quantified and validated. With very straightforward methods, Dr. Bieler leads his patients through recovery, allowing their bodies to heal themselves. This book is by far the most important testimonial to the secret of health that the food/pharma/med industries do not want you to know about. Dr. Bieler was a pioneer before his time, probably scorned by his peers, and yet he had the key to health and longevity that industry wishes they could market. If you are opposed to the corporate control of your access to information, limitations on the availability of decent and affordable health care or are just plain tired of the propaganda and blatant lies that are perpetuated to make windfall profits at the expense of your health, then you need to read this book.
