When Naturopathic practitioner Rudolf Breuss developed a 42-day juice fasting program that is intended to nourish the body and starve off cancer; it inspired Hilde Hemmes to publish it in Australia. "The Breuss Cancer Cure" contains information about Breuss's Total Cancer Treatment. In this book, he explains how the therapeutic properties of vegetable juices and herbal teas have effectively been incorporated in the cure of many forms of cancer. Breuss elaborates on a specific mixture made up of organically grown carrots, beetroot, celery, Chinese radish and potatoes that has worked on his patients. This specific liquid mixture of the vitamins and minerals is required by the body during the 42 day fast. In turn, the bodies own resources are used in dealing with the diseased tissue. Many cancer patients have confirmed that his treatment worked. This book outlines cures for a variety of ailments - depending on the severity of the condition, this book talks about how the same blend of liquids can practiced for a lesser period of time with food.
