Rudolf Breuss, Austrian naturopath born in 1899, spearheaded the use of raw foods to heal the body.
“To my mind, healing means returning a malfunctioning human body to full unrestricted function, not to remove parts of it by operation or amputation.” (1)
His cancer treatment protocol of a 42-day juice- and herbal tea-only diet has been used by tens of thousands since 1950.
His book asserts that employment of his diet has cured forty-seven thousand cases of various forms of cancer, including those of the throat, breast, stomach, intestine, lung, liver, brain, ovaries, and bone.
There are no formal scientific studies as to the chemistry of Breuss’ anti-cancer juice, however, testaments of those who have tried it abound.
Powerful Cancer-Fighting Ingredients
There is ample documented evidence that the ingredients in his juice have the effects claimed.
Celery – fiber-rich celery aids in purging waste and toxins from the body, including cancerous cells. Apigenin, its primary constituent flavone, has been associated with reduction of malignancies of cancers of the skin, prostate, breast, and digestive tract. (5)
Potato – according to Chinese research, the consumption of white vegetables, such as potatoes, cauliflower, and onions reduces the risk of stomach cancer. (6) These vegetables contain a high concentration of vitamin C, which is known to impair tumor growth.
Radish – part of the cruciferous family of vegetables, radish provide fiber, folate, vitamin C, antioxidants, and minerals to the body. Hundreds of studies on cruciferous vegetables have proven their anti-cancer potency. (7, 8)
