formerly: cancer and the philosophy of the far east
After studying and teaching traditional Oriental medicine and philosophy for fifty years, and having observed how this "forbidden" medicine has cured thousands of desperate, abandoned, "incurable" patients, I have learned the secret of health and a magnificent life. Here from my experience, is a list of important suggestions:
1. Suppress sugar completely from your diet.
2. Learn that it is possible to live without being carnivorous.
3. Eat primarily whole grain cereals, vegetables, beans and seaweeds-all as unrefined as possible.
4. Eat as little as possible of other foods (vivere parvo).
5. Keep liquid down to a minimum.
Follow these instructions for one, two or three weeks. You will see the results for yourself.
Before leaving this subject I would like to add that industrialized, commercial sugar is totally unnecessary, man having lived without it for thousands of years. It exists only for pleasure; and pleasure, being ruled by our lower judgement, often lures us into great dangers.
Some people find meat delicious. Our civilization of abundance and abuse supplies us with much of it, and the nutritional theory in favor nowadays strongly recommends it. But in point of fact, meat and other animal products are not at all "absolutely necessary". One can live without them. All animals can produce proteins peculiar to their species, even when they lack a source of nitrogen-organic or inorganic. All are endowed with the ability to transmute carbon and oxygen into nitrogen. (See Biological Transmutations by Louis Kervran, 1962, Maloine, Paris.)
Palliative medicine is unconcerned with causes, and examines only superficial aspects. It refuses to involve the patient, the cause of the disease. As a consequence I am able to declare here once and for all that symptomatic medicine will never cure cancer. Nor will it ever truly cure any disease, not even a common cold.
I would like to give you some advice. It is the conclusion I have reached after fifty years of studying and teaching the Unifying Principle of the philosophy of the Far East. In my opinion it is the key to awareness of the fact that we are always in the Kingdom of Heaven. It can enable you to immunize yourself your entire life against any disease-cancer and mental illness included. The secret is quite simple: avoid animal protein as much as possible, and completely avoid refined sugar. (1)
