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.
