While this book does not go into great detail about the treatment of specific diseases, by using the outlined methods and following the provided guidelines to rebuild your health, you are likely to improve anyway, whatever the name of the disease. Rather than fighting your disease, I recommend you focus all your resources on improving your health. Your disease may then disappear on its own. To show how simple, natural methods can be very effective in overcoming medically incurable diseases, I mention an example from The Food and Health of Western Man, by Dr. J. L. Mount. In five cases of bowel cancer, surgery revealed that the cancer had already metastasized all over the body. Therefore, these patients were just closed up again and sent home to die. But instead of doing that, these five people, independently of each other, became keen gardeners and from then on ate only home grown, organically raised food. When they finally did die, 21 to 30 years later, no traces of cancer could be found in post mortem examinations.
