About the Author

Dr. Bernard Jensen was one of America’s pioneering nutritionists and iridologists. Beginning his career in 1929 as a chiropractor, he soon turned to the art of nutrition for his own health problems. He observed firsthand the cultural practices of people in more than fifty-five countries, discovering important links between food and health. In 1955, Dr. Jensen established the Hidden Valley Ranch in Escondido, California as a retreat and learning center dedicated to the healing principles of nature where he saw firsthand the value of nutrition and iridology.

Over the years, Dr. Jensen received many honors and awards, including Knighthood in the Order of St. John of Malta; the Dag Hammarskjold Peace Award of the Pax Mundi Academy in Brussels, Belgium; and an award from Queen Juliana of the Netherlands for his nutritional work. In 1982, he also received the National Health Federation’s Pioneer Doctor of the Year award.

Bernard Jensen is a brilliant and accredited nutritionist and natural healer. This book is an excellent source of nutritional information for the person who is willing to change their diet to understand that all ailments can be traced back to what we eat. Change your diet change your health. His philosophy is sound and scientifically accurate. You can make a difference in your health by choosing the correct foods. Food is the first medicine and Dr. Jensen describes the therapeutic values of many foods for specific ailments; lists nutrient availability of many foods and adds recipes to boot. This book is a must for anyone who is even contemplating natural healing or seeking preventive measures to ill health. Dr. Jensen is a gifted teacher and I highly recommend all of his published materials.

Well, Dr. Jensen again has to teach a lesson to most of us. If you don't know who Dr. Jensen, you need to find out and do what he says. Really. He was a pioneer in nutrition, alternative therapies and iridology (diagnostic through iris study) - lived for 93 years until 2001. Being saved himself through nutrition from an incurable - at least at that time, in the 20's - lung disease, he turned out to study how foods impact our health. He traveled worldwide, and learned about the food of many nations. Not only that, he saved a lot of lives and taught people about the way we are supposed to eat to have a vibrant health. The first book of Dr. Jensen that I've read - titled "Doctor-Patient Handbook"; I'll post a review some day - is a good introduction to the process of natural healing, about diet, about fasting and about healing that appear when the body is ready to undo old diseases.

This one book starts by presenting the work and principles of Dr. Jensen's two idols: one is the ancient Greek Hippocrates, the creator of the doctors' oath, and the other is Victor G. Rocine, who had Jensen as a student for years. They both had things in common, as you'll see in the book. Quoting Hippocrates: "Let medicine be thy food and food be thy medicine". From the work of Rocine you will learn some very important things about the body chemistry, how the foods contain such chemicals (e..g. sodium, calcium) and how the influence that balance; how the body fights against bad diet (of course by worsening other parts, such as the joints), and so on. It's an eye opener!

Then, in the next chapter, Dr. Jensen talks about his own work, how he improved what he had been taught, applied on his own patients and taught them how to eat.

This is an excellent little book. This book offers "foods that heal" and interesting health/food subjects, as well, as a myriad of helpful food factoids and tips to assist the reader on the road to wellness.

Dr. Jensen not only goes into depth about each of the foods he has chosen as the ones that heal, offering a ton of history for each and how each food can best be used, but he also quickly built a foundation about the very basic physiological needs of the body. From there, Dr. Jensen discusses the most common mineral deficiencies in humans and which foods are rich in them.

Among his many helpful offerings, Dr. Jensen provides a small list of common disorders and juice recipe cocktails that can help the conditions. He also has a chart of the 12 major body systems, which vitamins and minerals they require, and from which foods and herbs you can get them from. ANOTHER chart he offers is what he calls a "food remedy troubleshooting chart" which is basically just a quick overview of what is to come. It's a list of all the "chosen" foods, which chemical elements are most prominent, and what the foods are best FOR.

Dr. Jensen also quickly touches upon his food philosophy and beliefs and his suggestions for diet, such as eating 60% raw, 80% alkaline foods, etc.

Overall, this is just an excellent book, chock full of information. There's no way anyone could lose out from owning this awesome book. There is just so much offered here, I can't imagine ANYONE not being satisfied with it.

And just something worth noting, all of the foods in the book, with the exception of two items (lima beans and lentils), are either a fruit or vegetable. And while that is the case, he does mention some other foods that he believes to be wonderful in their healing and nutritive properties.

Love the way this book is organized. If you want to look up a given food, you don't need to look it up in an index, then search thru a lot of text on various pages. Foods are alphabetized and the one thing that stands out with this book is that it doesn't give a food's value, stating "large peach," etc. It will give the weight of the food and value per that weight. Perfect. I call it my food bible.

FOODS THAT HEAL by Dr. Bernard Jensen, is an excellent book on the various attribues of various foods, and what they can do to make, or keep, you healthy.
This book was written in 1988 -- twenty-three years ago and counting. Yet the advice in it remains easily read, (and "digested"!), and easy to put into practice.

After a VERY first-page, ("primary page") entitled: "Can This Book Heal", there is a "Preface", and an "Introduction". This is followed by "Part One -- Pathways To Health", and includes essays with the subheadings: 1) Hippocrates and Jos Work 2) Rocine and His Work, and 3) My Work in the Health Arts / Conclusion: Making Changes. This is followed by Part 2, A Guide To Fruits and Vegetables, and....well, I notice that this is one of the books into which the author and/or publishers have graciously allowed prospective purchasers to "look inside", so I wont' go into more detail of the table of contents, or any of the other excellent excerpts given here. (But I must say that the "Appendix A -- Food Analysis Chart", is super-useful, and almost worth the entire price of the book, all by itself. It is given in the Amazon excerpt -- look at it yourself, you will NOT be sorry, but -- like me -- probably amazed and totally delighted!)

What is not included in the excellent "Look Into This Book" excerpt, are any of the descriptions of any of the descriptive listings of the many fruits and vegetables listed by Dr. Jenson in Part 2. Some of these descriptions can go on for four pages or more. I have deided to list below his description of the history and attribute of "BEET", which takes only one page. But all his fruit and vegetable descriptions follow this pattern:
