‘LIVING PROOF’: NATURE CURE CASE STUDIES
Mrs Snook and I spent Sunday morning tucked up in bed. I really enjoyed the book. It is interesting that the AMA still have their head in the sand regarding naturopathy. I wonder why they are so rigid in their views. Helen, Perth
[We had an] award scheme for cancer survivors in 1987 – and most of the winners were Mrs Snook’s former patients. There were people who had been given up by doctors whom she managed to keep alive – it was almost a miracle.
After following Dorothea Snook’s gut-cleanse diet and health treatments, I felt fantastic and years younger. My new energy levels remind me of the energy I had as a child and young person. I lost just over 13 kilos and my cholesterol levels dropped from 7.2 to 5.4, which I was thrilled about. My cholesterol levels have always ranged between 6 and 7.2, except for the time I did a famous diet six years ago and it shot up to twelve!
My former wife and I both went together to see Mrs Snook. The reason we went was because we’d been married for seven or eight years and were trying to start a family. We had both undertaken gynecological and fertility testing and been told there was no medical reason why either of us couldn’t have children but it just hadn’t happened. Dorothea did an iridology test on me. She could tell from the iridology testing that I once had a broken leg and arm – it was pretty incredible really. She was particularly good. She gave me diet charts on foolscap paper and a little green book called ‘What a Way to Go!!’ that had diets and information in it. I didn’t stick religiously to her diet – but I cut out meat and ate lots of salads. My wife did as well. Within three months, my wife was pregnant and we went on to have three children – one after the other. I kept going to see Dorothea, perhaps once a month, to monitor my progress and stay on track. She was fairly extreme and radical, particularly for that time. But her diet and the things she recommended were working for me. I had a lot more mental clarity.
