An employee of the company where I work seven years ago was diagnosed with leukemia. The outcome of his illness was poor. He was informed that he left from 6 to 12 months of life. Doctors have told him about the importance and necessity chemotherapy, which he refused. He decided to turn to alternative therapies. He studied the results diet consisting of unaffected cooked foods, including raw vegetables and fruits. At searching for information he caught the eye of the scientific work dedicated to the village located near Chernobyl. Most of the people living around nuclear power plant, was diagnosed with some form of cancer after the reactor exploded.
However, only one village was recorded only a few occurrences of cancer. Some time later, the researchers found that the diet of inhabitants of the village consists mainly of raw and boiled red beets. Scientists in their research hypothesized that eating boiled beets allowed the majority of the population of a nearby village to escape the consequences of Chernobyl tragedy century. My colleague began to adhere to a strict diet consisting of raw fruits and vegetables, especially fresh juices and beetroots, despite doctors' advice. His health has improved. He survived the first six months. Although Doctors warned him about the imminent return of leukemia, he continued to stick to their diet. Since then, seven years have passed, and my colleague is still with us.
Frequently asked questions about beet led me to think about need to share with some of the information I have on red beets, which I have not included in the book "The choice is yours!" and, because of lack of time, not talking about them to their patients. Healing properties of beets used in their practice these famous doctors of antiquity, as Avicenna, Hippocrates, Galen, Dioscorides, and Paracelsus. Physicians of ancient Greece believed that the beet juice cures fever, anemia, diseases of the digestive organs and lymphatic vessels. Rachel Madorsky
