At the turn of the century, heart disease and arteriosclerosis were virtually unheard of. Today, however, they are the Western world’s number one killers, with cancer running right behind.

As a practitioner who has examined many people, I know that clogged arteries and poor circulation are an unfortunate fact of life for many. While mortality statistics at the turn of the century are not altogether reliable, there is always a consistent figure for deaths from heart attacks or heart disease: between 6-8%. By the 1950’s, that number had climbed to 30%. Today, almost 50% of all deaths in the United Sates and Australia are from cardiovascular disease (CVD) or coronary heart disease (CHD). What went wrong?

As we shall see in this little book, the answer will surprise you. Most of the public (as well as most medical professionals) believes that CVD and CHD are mostly caused by an improper diet and in this they are correct. Where they go wrong, however, is in the elements of that diet.

It is very common to hear such nutritional mantras as, “Saturated fat clogs arteries,” and “Don’t eat too much cholesterol—it’s bad for your heart.” These assertions are false. Surprised? You should be. The very diet that has been recommended to reduce heart disease by many medical and nutritional practitioners for the past 50 years is the very diet that CAUSES it!

Heart disease is a very complex rubric of different causes with diet being a major, but not the only component. It is hoped that his book will enlighten all who read it. It is hoped that you will avoid heart disease by following the instructions in this volume.

Why we like this book

It tells the truth about what is really contributing to the continual rise of heart diseases in this country. You’ll be relieved to know that whole foods like eggs, raw milk, raw milk products, and unprocessed meats are not the cause. A must read for anyone with heart disease in their family history. It’s a quick and easy read.

Lastly, though we don't agree with every point the author makes or some of his/her suggested methods, we have found this book to be informative and worth recommending. However, by selling this book, we are not recommending other works by the author or his/her chosen lifestyle.

From our Mailbox

When our family begins to get the sniffles, I prepare a simple concoction of
the following in a small dish:

½ cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 inches of ginger, minced

Drizzle ¾ cup of non-pasturized honey over the mix of fresh herbs and cover
with a lid. In a while, you will notice a runny liquid forming on top; this
is an extraction of the ingredients. Use this liquid as a cough syrup
throughout the day. Our colds do not usually last more than 2 days with this
easy and effective concoction!

This combination can also be used in a tea form. Simply brew a cup of mint
or chamomile tea and add some of the above mentioned liquid along with some
freshly squeezed lemon juice. Non-pasturized honey can also be added to
taste. This tea works just like Neocitran without the use of drugs or
