Review of the Grape Cure ebook for Home Detox:

How to Lose Weight, Feel Great, and Even Heal What Ails You with The Grape Cure

In the 1920s, Johanna Brandt of South Africa said she cured her stomach cancer with what she called The Grape Cure. A few years later, she wrote a fascinating book that revealed the specifics of the natural method she used on her body.

Today you can have for your health library an annotated and updated version of Johanna Brandt's natural health classic, a book you can use to lose weight and feel great. And, yes, the techniques found in this eBook version of The Grape Cure can still be applied if you have a serious illness and if you are willing to take responsibility for your health and illness and work with a qualified physician who has an interest in nutritional healing.

So Much Better than a Starvation Diet
  • Instead of those boring and painful starvation diets, why not try The Grape Cure to lose those extra pounds around the middle? Most people who utilize this natural healing system report losing anywhere from five to ten pounds a week.

Lots of Fun to Read

  • Unlike many modern health books that require a Ph.D. in biology to understand, The Grape Cure was written by a woman who figured out on her own how to heal her physical problems. You'll enjoy The Grape Cure because it reads more like a detective story than it does a health book.

Extensively Annotated and Updated

  • I love old natural health books, but I also realize that the information found in many of them is occasionally dated or incorrect for modern times. Consequently, I always add my two-bits worth when I reprint a classic health book. With my easy-to-read footnote annotations, you'll have the best overall information I'm capable of providing for you.

People Healed Cancer and Other
Chronic Ailments with The Grape Cure

  • In her book, Johanna Brandt shares the stories of several people that the medical profession had given up on. These individuals recovered from desperate cancers, arthritis, and a host of other chronic diseases simply by taking The Grape Cure.

  • If you have a chronic condition and if the medical profession is only making it worse, you may well find the detailed self-help information in The Grape Cure appropriate for you. You should, of course, work with a nutritionally-minded physician who will help you understand detox symptoms and changes in your body.

Modern Science Supports
Aspects of The Grape Cure

Respected cancer researcher Ralph Moss wrote enthusiastically about The Grape Cure in the Spring, 1997, issue of his Media Watch:

Substance in Grapes Inhibits Cancer Growth

On New Year's Day, 1997, The Boston Globe reprinted a Reuters dispatch that raises high hopes about grapes. Red grape skins, it turns out, contain a substance called resveratrol. According to a well-known researcher, Dr. John Pezzuto of the University of Illinois at Chicago, this naturally occurring phenol "has multiple modes of action, inhibiting cancer growth at a lot of different stages, which is unusual." These stages are initiation of DNA damage, transformation of the cell into cancer, and growth and spread of the tumor.

Resveratrol Protects against Coronary Heart Disease

Although resveratrol was first isolated from a Peruvian legume called Cassia quinquangulata, it was later found in grapes, particularly red grapes, as well as in peanuts, mulberries and other plants. It may also be one of the compounds responsible for wine's proven ability to protect against atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease, according to other reports from the University of Toronto (Clin Chim Acta, 235: 2, 1995 Mar 31, 207-19). Great -- another excuse to drink wine! (If you do so, try to make it an organic red, since grapes are very heavily sprayed with pesticides.)

Magical Health Restoring Properties of Grapes

Again, this makes us think of another approach long derided by the quackbusters. This was The Grape Cure, popularized in the U.S. in the 1930s by a South African woman named Johanna Brandt. You can sometimes find her slim volume on a dusty shelf in the health food store. Brandt was herself drawing on an old European tradition which held that grapes had almost magical health-restoring properties when eaten in abundance.

I own an old book called A System of Physiologic Therapeutics by Solomon Solis Cohen, A.M., M.D. (Philadelphia: Blakiston's, 1901). In it, Dr. Cohen shows that there were over a dozen clinics and spas administering the grape cure in northern Europe at the turn of the 20th century.

In Baden-Baden (still a center of interest in alternative medicine) doctors 100 years ago were combining the "grape cure" with other alternative practices, such as the "Terrain Cure," i.e. graduated walking and climbing exercises.

Of course, these were eventually branded as classic quackery by the drug-oriented doctors. These new reports from very respectable universities suggest there may have been something to the "grape cure" after all. Again, we hope that the A.M.A. will reserve a spot in its alternative Pantheon for the much maligned Ms. Brandt.

Well, from painful experience we all well know the medical and pharmaceutical industries aren't in any hurry to document the efficiency of a natural weight loss program or potential cancer cure that people can do in the comfort and privacy of their own homes at a cost less than the usual food bill.

I don't know about you, but I prefer to take responsibility for my own health. You can do the same thing, and a great place to start is with this annotated version of Johanna Brandt's The Grape Cure.

TODAY'S FEATURE ARTICLE

 
Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
