“Do not eat food robbed of its life-giving elements.”
“Nine out of every ten could get well if they would use simple God-given means.” — Jethro Kloss, Back to Eden.
One of the very first Natural Health books I ever bought was, Jethro Kloss’ Back to Eden and Michael Tierra’s, The Way of Herbs. I believe I got it from either P Street Naturally Yours, or what was Pyramid Bookstore, back in the day in Washington, DC. It was the early 90s. I had ‘healed’ myself from most of my childhood ailments like eczema, bronchial problems,and allergies to name a few.
Deep down I knew without conviction that the human body could, provided it had the right nutrients, re-balance itself into wholeness. I knew that if we only at the right foods we could help cure ourselves. I believed that Mother Earth had within its vast ecological system a library older than man himself plentiful, powerful and to cure ANY man-made ailment, crisis, or disaster. The Earth, I thought intuitively, could Heal Herself. And if the Earth could heal itself, the Human body could follow this same principle of rejuvenation and return to balance. I was drawn to Natural Healing and found Back to Eden a great introduction into the world of health, balance and alternative to living. I used these books to study Naturopathy, Herbal Healing, Asian healing philosophies, vegetarian food recipes, and ways to live “with” Mother Earth.
