|Here are true personal reports of those who followed the guidelines
of a doctor who heals with nutrition.
These people healed themselves, many from "incurable" illnesses.
All they used was food, straight from Mother Nature.
I hope you will find the inspiration here to try it in your own life.
To me, the bottom line is to blend Energy Soup every day with fresh home-grown
sprouts and baby greens.

Aging - Rejuvenation: "At
fifty years of age I was ready for an early retirement. My hair was
gray, I had a terrible case of colitis and other colon problems, I suffered
from low energy, and had no clear direction in life. Out of desperation
I turned to nature for relief. In wheatgrass,
raw foods, and exercise, I found what I feel is as close to the fountain
of youth as we are going to get. Twenty-five years after
my discovery, my hair has turned fully naturally brown again. My
weight has been a stable 119 (the same as it was in my youth), and my energy
level is limitless. I haven't needed the services of a physician
in years. My work has taken me all over the world on many demanding
lecture tours, sometimes for months at a time. Yet, I have more energy
than I can ever remember having as a child – and I am no child at 76."
– Ann Wigmore, from her book "Why You Do Not Need
To Grow Old" (quoted with permission of Ann Wigmore Foundation, 505-552-0595)
Asthma: "For many
many years I was a sufferer with asthma. And every so often my husband
would have to rush me to the hospital in an ambulance where I would stay
in the oxygen tank. I seemed to be allergic to everything.
Especially in the Spring, I would have the hardest kind of time to live.
A friend gave me your literature and I did not waste time to make the trip
to the Mansion [Dr. Ann Wigmore's living foods program]. I stayed
on there three weeks. But in that time, my asthma completely disappeared.
My friends tell me I look twenty years younger and now I am back to work
once more, which I was forced to give up because of my health. I
am very, very grateful to you for giving me new life." – G.A.,
Massachusetts, from Ann Wigmore's book "Be Your Own Doctor" (quoted with

Asthma: Ron Roberts
reports on his experience, in "Asthma: An Alternative Approach" (Keats
Publishing, New Canaan, CT, 1996). Ron was severely asthmatic from
the age of eight, then improved his health so much he ran a full marathon
without breathing problems:
"The most effective
ways to treat your asthmatic condition are to revitalize your immune system
with good nutrition, decrease the toxins in your body, avoid allergy triggers
and conditions and exercise regularly ... if you eliminate asthma triggering
preservatives and additives from your diet, eat nutrition loaded foods
and increase your fluid intake, you will feel better."
attorney, knowing my husband was troubled painfully with arthritis, gave
him a copy of "Why Suffer?" [Ann Wigmore's autobiography, Avery
Publishing Group, 1985]. We both read the book and were so impressed
that we had an indoor garden of wheatgrass growing within two days.
My husband began taking it as soon as it was five inches tall. The
results were miraculous. Getting up in the morning no longer meant
massage and groans. After just seven days on your therapy, he was
able to tie his own shoes without help. Within two weeks, on two
drinks a day, morning and evening, his pains and the swollen redness about
the knees disappeared." – R.M., Michigan, from Ann
Wigmore's book "Be Your Own Doctor" (quoted with permission of Avery Publishing)
Blood Pressure: "Even
as a child I seemed to have high blood pressure. My face was always
flushed, and the least exertion sent my heart pounding. When I married
and the children began to fill the house, my real troubles began.
My sister suggested I try the wheatgrass therapy. Thanks to my husband's
labor, I had three boxes of wheatgrass growing. Two weeks later my
doctor said my pressure had fallen 37 points and the week following 17
more. So the danger is passed and has been for over half a year.
I cannot thank you enough." – N.S., Montana, from
Ann Wigmore's book "Be Your Own Doctor" (quoted with permission of Avery
Breast Cancer: "I
had a lump on the under part of my left breast for over a year and a half.
It was growing slowly but steadily. My doctor and our clinic said
it was cancer. They advised an operation before it grew too large.
Having read what you had accomplished with cancers through the use of wheatgrass,
I got hold of your literature and have been taking the wheatgrass therapy
for three months. The lump is now the size of a walnut where previously
it was the size of a baseball. Also, it is now soft and there is
no pain. My doctor feels I am on my way to recovery without an operation."
– E.A., New York, from Ann Wigmore's book "Be Your
Own Doctor" (quoted with permission of Avery Publishing)

Sprouting Book (Avery Publishing, Garden City Park, NY, 1986) Dr. Ann
"In the past fifteen years I
made several trips to the large cities of India to set up healing camps
with doctors and government administrators there. Hundreds of people
with all sorts of problems – from heart disease and cancer to leprosy and
malnutrition – were admitted to these camps. The patients stayed
in the camp and ate sprouts, wheatgrass, and other
living foods until they recovered."
"The recovery of starving children who were placed on a diet combining
sprouts and fruits was truly amazing. In less than thirty days, their
sores and scars disappeared, and abdominal swelling was in every case reduced
to normal. Above all, these children became able to run and play,
instead of having to be carried around."
smokers drink wheatgrass juice, it immediately makes cigarettes taste terrible
and they can't stand to smoke. Back in 1972 I helped a retired FBI
agent and his wife to learn a better diet and how to grow Wheatgrass and
juice it, and he told me that he couldn't stand cigarettes after taking
the juice. So he decided to do one better than that – he put wheatgrass
in his pocket where the cigarettes used to be, so when he habitually reached
for a cigarette, he pulled out the grass and started chewing on it.
IT WORKED! He had tried hard to stop smoking several times previously,
but he couldn't do it. ALSO, he and his wife both got over their
cancer with the help of the better diet and the WHEATGRASS juice."
was telling me how a friend of his laughed at him when he told him he couldn't
smoke after drinking wheatgrass juice – so he gave his friend a dose of
it and said to let him know the results. THE FRIEND CALLED BACK AND
SAID "YOU WIN!" – M.M., Oregon, from private e-mail

Toothache & Bleeding Gums: "For
the first five years of my early 40's (1988-93) I spent hours and
hours in the dentist's chair. I wasted thousands of dollars and lost
five teeth in five years, to root canal or extraction.
Then in the fall of 1993 I began
blending Energy Soup (with home-grown sprouts and baby greens) 3-4 times
a week. In a little over a year, by early 1995, my teeth had healed
completely. I stopped going to the dentist! Today
I have no pain when I chew, no more infections, no cavities or new root
canals, and no bleeding gums.
This is a miracle! I can't
describe my high every day, and my relief, that I sleep without pain, eat
without pain. And to know that tomorrow the pain won't be there,
nor the day after. Because I grow my sprouts every day now." – author
of this web site, Val Archer
Weight Loss: Dr.
Ann Wigmore (D.D., N.D.) – the doctor who discovered the power of blended
sprouts and greens – writes in "The Sprouting Book" (Avery
Publishing, 1986): "With the Living Food Lifestyle,
there is an average weight loss of
four to fifteen pounds per week ... Easy-to-digest, nutritious, and cleansing
greens, and other living foods are the key. ... The pungent,
cleansing sprouts radish, fenugreek, cabbage, alfalfa, and clover are especially
good for weight loss." (quoted with permission
of Avery Publishing)
"Food is a love note from God. It says I love you and I shall take care of you and sustain you with the offerings of my earth. ... Eating consciously is a way of opening one's heart to God."
