Become Younger

Become Younger

By Norman Walker

BECOME YOUNGER might be called the "cornerstone" of the famous Walker Program. What place has nutrition in the scheme of good health? How can the body and mind be so tuned that "old age" might be defeated? Dr. Walker suggests "When we embark on this program which may change our eating, drinking and living habits, we must have the courage of our convictions based on the knowledge which we can acquire through the principles involved in this program... To "become younger" means to have attained a state of sublime self-reliance and self-sufficiency which no one can take away from us."

Vibrant Health

The Natural Way To Vibrant Health

By Norman Walker

PROPER NUTRITION IS TANTAMOUNT TO GOOD HEALTH. One man today is walking proof of all this. Dr. NORMAN W. WALKER, a living example of VIBRANT HEALTH, has had the answer since 1910. His information is timeless. The originator of "juice therapy," he made this statement in the preface to one of his books: "The lack or deficiency of certain elements, such as vital organic minerals and salts, and consequently of vitamins, from our customary diet is the primary cause of nearly every sickness and disease." For three quarters of a century MEDICAL EVIDENCE HAS NOT REFUTED HIM.

Diet and Salsa

Vegetarian Guide to Diet and Salad

By Norman Walker

The pitfalls of overindulgence in certain food elements, especially oil and sugar, have been well documented. Dr. Walker offers in his book DIET & SALAD both a cookbook and a nutritional guide that belongs in every kitchen. In it he supports current medical research about the harmful effects of milk- "It is generally assumed that cow's milk is one of our most perfect foods... Milk is the most mucus forming food in the human diet, and it is the most insidious cause of colds, flu, bronchial troubles, asthma, hay fever, pneumonia, and sinus trouble... cow's milk was never intended for a human infant."

Weight Control

Weight Control

By Norman Walker

In NATURAL WEIGHT CONTROL, Dr. Walker offers "A Diet Like No Other"- based on the body's need for vital, life-giving enzymes found only in nature's pure foods. On enzymes he writes- "Enzymes are not things or substances! They are the life-principle in the atoms and molecules of every living cell. The enzymes in the cells of the human body are exactly like those in vegetation, and the atoms in the human body each have a corresponding affinity for like atoms in vegetation."
