Heart disease

The various forms of heart disease are primarily the result of toxic

impurities clogging blood vessels; this deprives the heart muscles and

valves of oxygen and puts excessive chronic strain on the heart, which has

to pump much harder than normal to push blood through a clogged

circulatory system - a healthy heart pumps about 3,000 gallons of blood

every 24 hours, but a heart under the stress of a clogged circulatory

system must pump up to 25,000 gallons in 24 hours just to maintain

sufficient circulation; obviously, such an 8-fold increase in heart strain

soon leads to heart exhaustion and disease; the prime source of the blood

impurities and deposits that cause heart disease is a diet composed

entirely of denatured and cooked foods.

Carrot, celery, parsley, spinach juice: the most potent blend of juices for

potassium, which quickly restores proper blood pH, helps remove

deposits from blood vessels, and builds strong blood plasma, especially

hemoglobin; 8 oz/4 oz/2 oz/4 oz, 1-2 pints daily.

Carrot, beet, cucumber juice: dissolves acid crystals in kidneys, enabling

them to cleanse the blood more efficiently, thus removing impurities

that can accumulate to cause heart disease; 10 oz/3 oz/3 oz, 1-2 pints


Molasses: rich in organic iron and copper, as well as potassium, all of

which alkalize the bloodstream and build strong blood plasma, which

in turn benefits the heart tissues; 2 tbsp in warm water, twice daily.

Grapes: the 'grape cure' (nothing but 1-3 pounds of raw black grapes for

5-7 days) has been shown by experiments in the Soviet Union to have a

direct tonifying effect on the muscles and valves of the heart; also

purifies and balances the bloodstream.

Wheat germ oil: greatly enhances delivery of oxygen to the heart; best

when used in conjunction with raw garlic; 1 tsp wheat germ oil and 2-3

cloves raw garlic, once or twice a day, after meals.

Pecans: raw pecans are nature's richest source of readily assimilable

organic pyridoxine (vitamin B6), an element that plays an essential role

in converting the amino acids from consumed proteins into usable form

for the body; thus, raw pecans assist in the regeneration of damaged

cells in diseased hearts; 10-15 raw pecans (or 20-30 pecan halves) per


Other beneficial foods: raw spinach; cabbage; ripe bananas; wheat germ;

lecithin; sunflower seeds; raw garlic.

Foods to avoid: refined starch, especially white bread and sweet pastries;

refined sugar, especially sweet carbonated soft drinks (regular as well

as 'diet' types); cooked eggs; pasteurized milk; cooked fatty meats; salt.
