The Detox Miracle Sourcebook is one of my all-time favorites for anyone looking to improve their health through detoxification, raw foods and herbal remedies. I believe it’s a must have for every home!
“”You don’t have to accept the ‘death sentence’ offered by other medical systems,” Dr. Morse has told thousands of patients over the years. Since 1972, he has directed a health clinic in Florida, successfully helping people cure themselves of cancer, diabetes, M.S., Crohn’s disease, along with both brain and nerve damage. His “miracle” approach is fully detailed in this comprehensive book. The cause of illness is poison (acidosis), i.e., toxins from our food, water and air. No genuine healing can proceed in such a toxified environment. Morse’s system is to treat the cause of illness, not the symptoms! The Detox Miracle Sourcebook shows you how to use raw foods and herbs as of the primary means of detoxification, healing, and ultimate regeneration of weak or diseased cells.”
“This classic is still making its mark over 70 years since its debut. Author Johanna Brandt shares a personal journey of living with cancer and her discovery of how the beneficial properties of grapes cured her disease by refreshing and purifying cell structures. The virtues of naturopathy are extolled, and readers are encouraged to detoxify their bodies and prevent disease (namely cancer) through a combination of fasting and a diet of grapes and other raw foods.”
The China Study: Revised and Expanded Edition : The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-Term Health – “The science is clear. The results are unmistakable. You can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes just by changing your diet. More than 30 years ago, nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell, in partnership with teams in China and England, embarked upon the China Study, the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease. What they found when combined with findings in Colin’s laboratory, opened their eyes to the dangers of a diet high in animal protein and the unparalleled health benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet.”
Whole : Rethinking the Science of Nutrition – “What happens when you eat an apple? The answer is vastly more complex than you imagine. Every apple contains thousands of antioxidants whose names, beyond a few like vitamin C, are unfamiliar to us, and each of these powerful chemicals has the potential to play an important role in supporting our health. They impact thousands upon thousands of metabolic reactions inside the human body. But calculating the specific influence of each of these chemicals isn’t nearly sufficient to explain the effect of the apple as a whole. Because almost every chemical can affect every other chemical, there is an almost infinite number of possible biological consequences. And that’s just from an apple. In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven’t changed. ”
The Protein Myth: Significantly Reducing the Risk of Cancer, Heart Disease, Stroke, and Diabetes While Saving the Animals and the Planet – “The Protein Myth illustrates how we can avoid the major killer diseases by eliminating animal products from the diet. It challenges our healthcare organizations to stop ignoring the scientific evidence that a diet based on animal protein costs millions of lives. For example, why do they ignore telling the public that avoiding animal protein could prevent breast cancer for many women by lowering estrogen levels? The book also links the Western diet to many of the problems facing the world such as 1) the pollution of our atmosphere, rivers and streams, 2) the mass production of meat and dairy products on factory farms which is extremely cruel to animals, 3) the needless vivisection of animals at university laboratories for the sole purpose of getting billions of tax dollars from the public, 4) the manufacture of drugs to treat counterfeit diseases, 5) obesity in children, and 6) the creation of poverty in the developing world. The Protein Myth makes a compelling case that the way to a healthier life and a better world is to end our exploitation of animals.”
The Fast Diet: Revised and Updated: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, Live Longer – “A bigger, better version of the original Fast Diet at the same price point, featuring most of the content of the original book plus 30% new material.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO EAT WELL, MOST OF THE TIME, AND GET SLIMMER AND HEALTHIER AS YOU DO IT? WITH THE FAST DIET IT IS. This radical new approach to weight loss is the diet that everyone is talking about. It really is as simple as it sounds: you eat normally five days a week, then for just two days you cut your calories (500 for women, 600 for men). Scientific trials of Intermittent Fasting have shown that it will not only help the pounds fly off but also lower your risk of a range of diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Dr Michael Mosley, the medical journalist whose BBC Horizon programme alerted the world to the Intermittent Fasting phenomenon, presents the fascinating science behind the 5:2 diet. Mimi Spencer, award-winning food and fashion writer, explains the practicalities of how to go about it. The Fast Diet also includes a calorie counter and a whole section of ‘Fast 500’ and ‘Fast 600’ menu plans which will enable you to incorporate this groundbreaking weight-loss system into your daily life.
Professor Arnold Ehret was a pioneer of detoxification and the mucus-free diet over 100 years ago. His methods still ring true today! This is a must have book to learn about what diet is most appropriate for human-kind, revised and annotated for the 21st century by Professor Spira.

There Is A Cure For Diabetes, Revised Edition – “This new edition of There Is a Cure for Diabetes offers an innovative approach to the prevention and healing of what Dr. Gabriel Cousens calls chronic diabetes degenerative syndrome. A leading medical authority in the world of live-food nutrition, Dr. Cousens exposes the dangers of excess glucose and fructose as the key causes of this seemingly unstoppable epidemic that affects more than twenty-five million Americans and 347 million people worldwide. Cousens, whose Diabetes Recovery Program is the most successful anti-diabetes program in the world, presents a three-week plan that focuses on a moderate–low complex carbohydrate, live food, plant-source-only diet that reverses diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being by resetting the genetic expression of a person’s DNA. The program renders insulin and related medicines unnecessary within four days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels, and the diabetic shifts into a non-diabetic physiology within two weeks. Substantially revised throughout, this practical and encouraging guide reveals the risks of low cholesterol and low omega 3’s in one’s diet and includes more than 140 delicious and healthy recipes. The book represents a major breakthrough in understanding the synergy that helps cure diabetes.”
This wouldn’t be a complete list without adding a few titles from Dr Bernard Jensen. Another pioneer in the field of natural health, Dr Jensen is responsible for bringing the science of Iridology to the western world, expanding the field of Iridology, continuing the works of Arnold Ehret and setting the stage for Dr Robert Morse to continue in modern times. Dr Jensen’s primary focus is creating gut health & cleansing the digestive system, and his programs reflect this. In modern times we can expand on his work to include cleansing the lymphatic system to maximize our healing potential.
Iridology Simplified : An Introduction to the Science of Iridology and Its Relation to Nutrition – “Iridology is the science of analyzing the delicate structures of the iris to reveal and locate inflammation in the body and determine how it is manifesting. Nerve fibers in the iris change color and shape to reflect the health of the body and indicate areas of illness or injury. Bernard Jensen pioneered iridology in the United States and developed a chart that shows regions of the iris mapped to various organs in the body. With this chart, an iridologist can determine a person’s constitutional strength, general health status, inherent strengths and weaknesses, and levels of toxic accumulations. It also helps to pinpoint current, chronic, and degenerative health problems and provides guidance for how to improve them with proper nutrition. The chart published in this book remains one of the most comprehensive and accurate indications of the reflexive relationship between the iris and our physical health.”
Visions of Health : Understanding Iridology – “For over one hundred years, researchers have studied the links between health and the patterns, colors, and textures of the iris. In the United States, Dr. Bernard Jensen brought the art of reading the iris into the twentieth century. In Visions of Health, Drs. Jensen and Bodeen describe the basics of iris analysis in easy-to-understand language with dozens of illustrations and color photos, as well as charts for reading your own eyes and those of friends. They believe that with this book in hand, you can recognize weaknesses in the iris and adjust your lifestyle to achieve optimum health.”
“Explains the importance to the body of 16 key chemical elements and offers advice on recommended daily intakes. The author also discusses foods rich in these nutrients, showing how to include them in our daily diet in order to assimilate the elements they contain.”
“In this classic work, Dr. Jensen offers a step-by-step program for using food to build health and fight disease. Also included is information on special immune-building nutrients, essential exercises for optimum health, and scientifically proven ways to nourish the brain, nervous system, colon, kidneys, lungs, skin, and lymphatic system.”
“One of Dr. Jensen’s most important works, this doctor-patient handbook shows readers how they can conquer chronic diseases with his eleven-day detoxification regime. Also featured is an explanation of the connection between the colon and other organs and a comprehensive diet and exercise plan.”
Foods That Heal – “An apple day keeps the doctor away.” Our grandparents knew that, and so did their grandparents. The fact is that the world’s greatest civilization have known about the healing powers of various fresh fruits and vegetables for millennia. Traditional healers have used time-tested ingredients made from natural foods as highly effective preventatives and healing aids. Now, in this fascinating book, Dr. Bernard Jensen traces pathways to maintaining vital health through the use of foods that heal.”
Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management : from the Simple to the Ultimate – “Considered the definitive work on the relationship of intestinal flora to tissue health, this enduring classic has sold over 1 million copies. Dr. Jensen’s recommendations have motivated multitudes of people to take responsibility for their health and well-being, and his protocols have helped them find relief from numerous bowel- and tissue-related diseases.

Heal Yourself with Sunlight – “In Heal Yourself with Sunlight, Andreas Moritz has provided scientific evidence that sunlight is essential for good health, and that a lack of sun exposure can be held responsible for many of today’s ailments. Sunlight is a nutrient, a medicine, a remedy, all at once. It is not some bottled compound you can find at a drug store alone. It is naturally available to everyone. The dosage is under your control and your body easily tells you when you have had just about the right amount of it. Unfortunately, even though sunlight is readily available all through the day, many people fail to profit from it. Read this book to learn how you can harness sunlight, nature’s most potent and curative powers, for maintaining good health. It is a misconception that the sun is the main culprit for causing skin cancer, certain cataracts leading to blindness, and aging. Research has actually shown that most skin cancers occur among those who rarely ever spend time in the sun or who use sunscreens filled with carcinogenic chemicals. It has been known for several decades that those living mostly in the outdoors, at high altitudes, or near the equator, have the lowest incidence of skin cancers and are among the healthiest people on the planet. Patients suffering from gout, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, tuberculosis, anemia, cystitis, eczema, acne, psoriasis, herpes, lupus, sciatica, kidney problems, asthma, as well as burns, have all shown to receive great benefit from the healing rays of the sun. Heal Yourself With Sunlight tells you, among other things, how Vitamin D, which the skin produces in response to sun exposure, keeps the body’s immune system strong, prevents the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis, and reverses numerous types of cancer, among many other illnesses. Sunlight is the ultimate source of life on earth and the ideal panacea to increase the effectiveness of every other healing modality. Unlike drugs, surgery or radiation, sunlight costs nothing, has no harmful side-effects, and foremost of all, it makes you feel good.”
The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush – “In this greatly expanded edition of his international bestseller, Andreas Moritz reveals the most common but rarely recognized cause of illness – gallstones congesting the bile ducts in the liver. Besides leading to gallbladder diseases and gallstone attacks in at least 20 million Americans each year, in many cases, liver bile duct congestion sets the stage for even more serious, seemingly unrelated, conditions, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Most adults living in the industrialized world, and especially those suffering a chronic illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome, heart disease, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cancer, or diabetes, have in fact hundreds if not thousands of gallstones (mainly clumps of hardened bile that escape detection for they are invisible to x-rays, ultrasound, and CT scans) blocking the bile ducts of their liver. This book provides a thorough understanding of the liver and its complex functions, what causes gallstones in the liver and gallbladder, and why these stones can be held responsible for the most common diseases so prevalent in the world today. It provides the reader with the knowledge needed to recognize these stones and gives the necessary, do-it-yourself instructions to painlessly remove them in the comfort of one’s home.”
The Sacred Science : An Ancient Healing Path for the Modern World – “In 2010, Nick Polizzi did something unimaginable. He assembled a group of eight desperately ill patients from around the world and brought them into the heart of the Amazon rain forest to put the mysterious medicines of native shamans to the test. The healing journey that unfolded would change their lives – and his own – forever. In The Sacred Science, we join Nick as he explores these primordial traditions and learns firsthand what it takes to truly heal ourselves of physical disease, emotional trauma, and the sense of “lostness” that so many of us feel in these modern times.”
The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants : Ethnopharmacology and its Applications – “In the traditions of every culture, plants have been highly valued for their nourishing, healing, and transformative properties. The most powerful plants–those known to transport the human mind into other dimensions of consciousness–have traditionally been regarded as sacred. In The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive PlantsChristian Ratsch details the botany, history, distribution, cultivation, and preparation and dosage of more than 400 psychoactive plants. He discusses their ritual and medicinal usage, cultural artifacts made from these plants, and works of art that either represent or have been inspired by them. The author begins with 168 of the most well-known psychoactives–such as cannabis, datura, and papaver–then presents 133 lesser known substances as well as additional plants known as “legal highs,” plants known only from mythological contexts and literature, and plant products that include substances such as ayahuasca, incense, and soma. The text is lavishly illustrated with 797 color photographs–many of which are from the author’s extensive fieldwork around the world–showing the people, ceremonies, and art related to the ritual use of the world’s sacred psychoactives.”
Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils – “Are you bogged down by your emotions? Do you feel trapped in emotional ruts? Are you frustrated trying to rationalize your way around your emotions? Happily, the process to clear stagnant emotional blocks and patterns is easy! Emotions are stored at a cellular level in specific organs within the body. They must be cleared at this level in order to be released. Essential oils access these stuck emotions at their deepest level, by accessing the limbic portion of the brain, which is the seat of emotions. This is not a new technique – it was employed by the ancient Egyptians. “Releasing Patterns With Essential Oils” is a practical, step-by-step guide providing a natural remedy for emotional cleansing. It offers over 130 pages including charts, diagrams, and easy-to-follow instructions. Join the thousands of people who have removed the emotional roadblocks to a happier life!”
Your body speaks to you through emotions and deciphering that language could be vital in your healing journey. If you’ve ever wanted to know what emotional aspects relate directly to your health challenges then we believe Inna Segal says it best in her best-selling book The Secret Language of Your Body.
The secret Language of your Body – “The Secret Language of Your Body is a comprehensive guide to healing. In this in-depth and comprehensive book, Inna Segal unveils the secrets to understanding the messages of the body and reveals the underlying energetic causes of over 200 symptoms and medical conditions. This powerful handbook explores nearly every conceivable part of the human body, delving deeply into the possible reasons for problems in any given area of the body and offering a unique, step-by-step method to assist in returning the body to its natural state of health.”
The Completion Process – “The Completion Process takes readers along on her restorative journey of healing and liberation. For anyone who has been fractured by trauma–and according to Teal, in one way or another, we all have–here is a way to put ourselves back together again, no longer inhibited by the past or terrified of the future. Drawing on her wide range of extrasensory abilities–including clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience–and incorporating key aspects of inner child and shadow work, Teal offers a revolutionary 20-step process for healing any past hurt or present problem. The steps include: -Creation of a Safe Haven–setting up a mental place where it’s safe to re-enter a painful memory. -Validation–giving the painful emotion the message that we see it as valid. -Seeking Origin–asking, “When was the first time I felt this feeling?” to connect to the root of it. -Awaiting Relief–inside the memory, letting the feeling naturally shift in the direction of relief. -Purification and Healing–a ritual for closing the memory of trauma and beginning a “new life.”The Completion Process is not only a healing process,” Teal writes. “It’s also an enlightenment process.” It will leave readers with a sense of their value in the world and the assurance that life can be good again.”
The Emotion Code is another one of our favorite self-healing books containing a valuable emotional release technique within its pages.
The Emotion Code – “The Emotion Code is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of unseen baggage. Dr. Nelson’s method gives you the tools to identify and release the trapped emotions in your life, eliminating your ’emotional baggage’, and opening your heart and body to the positive energies of the world. He reveals how emotionally-charged events from your past can still be haunting you in the form of ‘trapped emotions’ – emotional energies that literally inhabit your body. These trapped emotions can fester in your life and body, creating pain, malfunction and eventual disease. They can also extract a heavy mental and emotional toll on you, impacting how you think, the choices that you make, and the level of success and abundance you are able to achieve. Perhaps most damaging of all, trapped emotional energies can gather around your heart, cutting off your ability to give and receive love.”

Anatomy of the Spirit is all that its name implies. We love this book as an explanatory guide to the anatomy of your Soul and energy medicine.
“Anatomy of the Spirit presents Dr. Myss’ breakthrough model of the body’s seven centers of spiritual and physical power, in which she synthesizes the ancient wisdom of three spiritual traditions — the Hindu chakras, the Christian sacraments, and the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life — to demonstrate the seven stages through which everyone must pass in the search for higher consciousness and spiritual maturity.
