Raw Foods & Health Pioneers
Edmund Bordeaux Szekely, Ann Wigmore, Dr. Pottinger & Edward Howell
A great number of health pioneers lived during the 1940’s. It seems that just enough time had passed what with the use of modern medicine that many health practitioners thought: “There must be another way!” As it turns out, the other way was a method that had been around since the time of Hippocrates who said, “Let your food be your medicine.”
Some of the early pioneers were Edward Howell who gave 60 years of his life studying the life force of the plant: the enzyme. Edmund Bordeaux Szekely translated an ancient scroll wherein Christ taught about living food. Charles Schnabel gave us great information about the grasses.
Ann Wigmore used her personal experience as a child growing up in Lithuania to combine living foods and wheatgrass juice to give us an amazing diet that cured many serious illnesses. Her work has been verified by institutes still in operation today that teach people how eat to get well from serious illness.
One such early pioneer was a medical doctor by the name of Dr. Pottinger. He performed a TEN YEAR EXPERIMENT whereby 900 cats were fed controlled diets. The cats eating raw food produced healthy kittens from generation to generation. Those on cooked food developed modern Man’s ailments: heart troubles, kidney and thyroid disease, pneumonia, paralysis, loss of teeth, difficulty in labor, diminished or perverted sexual interest, diarrhea, irritability. By the third generation, a great percentage of cats were infertile. This was written up in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Oral Surgery in August of 1946.
Did we as a people learn from the knowledge of these pioneers? Yes, many have, but not enough. Profit has and always will suppress the truth.
