Media attention is newly focused on the recurrence of cancer in both Elizabeth Edwards and White House Press Secretary Tony Snow. Many people are confused over the statements about Mrs. Edwards having “incurable but treatable” cancer. For years, at his clinic in Switzerland, Dr. Thomas Rau has been helping people with cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases improve overall health and quality of life. Now, Thomas Rau, M.D., a leading physician of biological medicine, shares his unique nutritional program for fighting not only cancer, but a wide range of chronic degenerative diseases in THE SWISS SECRET TO OPTIMAL HEALTH: Dr. Rau’s Diet for Whole Body Healing (Berkley Books; April 2007; $23.95)
In this book Dr. Rau shares his unique nutritional program, which is rejuvenating and energizing, whether the patient is practicing preventative medicine or fighting a serious illness. Easy to follow and clearly explained, the nutritional plan is simple and one that many people have found extremely effective at combating cancer and the damaging residual effects of chemotherapy, arterial sclerosis, heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, allergies, asthma, and osteoporosis. The diet is also effective at dealing with depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, and even autism.
The reason this program is able to address so many diseases is that it creates optimal health within the matrix, the intercellular spaces and fluids surrounding all cells in the body, where many biochemical reactions take place. The diet’s main goal is to boost the natural immune system so that the body heals itself, cell by cell.
Currently the top diet and nutrition book on Amazon.com and seventh in overall sales, THE SWISS SECRET TO OPTIMAL HEALTH offers a two-step nutritional program beginning with a three-week diet, “The Swiss Detox Diet,” which purges old toxins, removes hidden food allergies, feeds the good intestinal bacteria, and alkalizes the body – -all laying the groundwork for a stronger immune system. Once healing begins, Rau advocates a balanced way of eating – “Dr. Rau’s Maintenance Diet for Life” – that over time continues to repair tissues and organs.
THE SWISS SECRET TO OPTIMAL HEALTH addresses such questions as:
. How much protein is good for the body and why is too much damaging?
. What are hidden food allergies and how can they be eliminated?
. Why does what one eats make such a difference to health on a cellular level?
. What is “The Phoenix Factor” and what does it mean to healing chronic diseases?
Over 100 flavorful recipes in THE SWISS SECRET TO OPTIMAL HEALTH make the diet easy to follow and pleasingly palatable. Best of all, the theories behind all of Dr. Rau’s dietary recommendations are clearly explained, so readers can understand why some foods are allowed – or even encouraged- and others prohibited allowing for individualized meal plans.
