Hi, Mom, I say groggily, Are you okay? We usually talk on Sundays.
I peer through the curtains above my bed. It's clear early morning in Beverly Hills, California. I wonder what in the world - or in Cincinnati happened to get Mom to call on day rates.
Jeff was in an accident.
His car went into a ravine and he suffered sever brain damage. He's in a coma.
No... I'll be on the next flight.
The doctors say he won't live through another night, she hesitates.
There's no point in your coming... until it's over.
Why would Mom say such a thing? If there's anything I can do I want to be there.
Mary doesn't want you here.
She actually said that?
She told me to tell you not to come.
If Mary and I could have done what each other wanted we'd still be married I'll call you as soon as I've booked a flight.
Okay, We'll pick you up at the airport.
Thank you. I love you.
I love you, she replies sincerely and hangs up.
Oh, my God, I'm going to have to face the helplessness I felt when Jeff was an infant and I was seventeen. And the divorce with Mary at nineteen. I feel delirious.
I flip open my personal phone directory and punch in the numbers. The lines are busy. A recorded Voice answers. I check my pulse rate. It's faster. Although my heart and mind seem a little frenzied, I notice my adrenals haven't triggered panic in my body. Is my body protecting me from the inevitable? Can't death just leave me alone?
I won't spend energy on that probability. Okay. Jeff will need lots of . . .

From a customer:
"I appreciate the excellent service I received from you. I’ve had the opportunity to use your service twice and both times I received the valuable material I needed, at a good price, and in an extremely timely manner.
Just want to mention that I’ve already experienced a couple major physical miracles after applying Aajonus Vonderplanitz’ diet (I purchased both his books and Jill’s Raw Food DVD from you). Mentioning one: after 16 years, I’m presently free of intense migraine pain and the medication for it.
Sincerely, B, Altadena, California
From the Publisher
Through this remarkable but true story of the author's battle to save his estranged son from life-threatening injuries following an automobile accident, we not only learn how the author healed himself of terminal cancer, diabetes, bursitis and psoriasis but how thousands of people have healed themselves of hundreds of diseases and ailments with the foods that have healed them. Listed are everything from aging, the common cold and beauty tips to cancer, infant problems and muscular dystrophy.
All of the disappointments that people have endured because of failed diets and expensive miracle-cure supplements can be understood and set aside. Finally phenomenal results with health, healing and sensible disease-prevention, culled from over 40 years of medical and naturopathic experience and experimentation. Most people applying the wisdom directly from Aajonus, the author, have reduced their medical bills by 90%. Some have been able to eliminate them entirely. Imagine having a life at the end of the rainbow where you control not only how naturally good you feel but how healthy you are. Is this how food was eaten in the Garden of Eden? Probably.
About the Author
Aajonus Vonderplanitz was a sickly and accident-prone child who suffered learning attention and social disorders. At twelve he survived his first life-and-death situation from peritonitis that was misdiagnosed as appendicitis. His health continued to decline throughout adolescence. At twenty, he was diagnosed with blood and bone cancer and given less than six months to live. Medical therapies made him a semi-invalid with three new "incurable" diseases and a medical death sentence of "three months at best".
His struggle for life drove him to pursue the boundaries of health. He explored every alternative: physical exercise, psychotherapy, positive-thinking, metaphysics, religion, vitamin, mineral and enzyme supplementation and dietary regimes. He obtained substantial results from certain diets and began to study nutrition.
After his health improved significantly, he traveled for three years on a bicycle laden with a sleeping bag and four saddle bags containing books on health, physiology and anatomy. He adventured the North American continent, living outdoors while studying the diets and healing methods of various cultural groups and animals. He discovered a dietary approach that changed his life. His cancer went into complete remission and eventually reversed. He has out-lived his medical death sentence by 32 years and enjoys excellent health.
Mr. Vonderplanitz has a farm in Illinois and works as a nutritionist in Los Angeles. Disney's Epcot Magazine featured him in an episode entitled "You Are What You Eat". He fostered nutrition on several talk TV and radio shows and children's programs. People from all over the world seek his individualized counseling. At present he is developing a companion volume of raw-food recipes.
I was supposed to die 15 years ago from liver, spinal uterine and brain cancers. Aajonus' diet saved my life and made it rich, enjoyable, and disease-free. Pamela, age 50
Feeling better is the best clinical evidence of all. Within three weeks...I was blown away with the feeling of well-being.. and my digestion was practically perfect. The diet supports me in going through the elimination of toxins without feeling too terribly ill. This give me a tremendous sense of autonomy in managing my body... It took getting cancer for me to get to this. I am so grateful for the truth. Finally. Dianne, age 44
...such a profound effect on how I feel. One... immediate result was the disappearance of the numerous sinus headaches I suffered over the years... gum problems healed after three months...menstrual cramps disappeared...I am able to climb many stairs without feeling strain in my legs. My entire body feels stronger...this diet has been a godsend to me. Laura, age 35
Comments from our customers
"Just after I sent you that last e-mail, yesterday, I left for work. On my way out the door, I found my book, We Want to Live! What fast service!!! Unfortunately, I couldn't get time to read it 'til after 10:30 PM last night....Then, I couldn't put it down! It is absolutely fascinating!! Too bad that we can't get raw milk products here in Minnesota, one of the largest producers of dairy products. Wish we still lived in San Diego. However, maybe I can make friends with a farmer. Thanks again for the quick service." S. M.
