Book Description

1 Jan 1998
Inspired by a remarkable wilderness experience Rich discovers deep internal cleansing: Living in the fresh open air with his herbalist friend, White Crow, bathing in cold streams and lakes, eating only fresh, wild herbs and studying the human soul and body changed Rich s life forever. The herbs they consumed initiated unexpected and an almost unbelievable cleansing; their minds became sharp and clear, their energy almost limitless and they found themselves steeped in a profound sense of well-being. And all of this was accompanied by an endless flow of love and joy that permeated every cell of their beings as their awareness magically expanded beyond words. Topics include vegetarianism, alkaline/acid balance and emotions. Rich shares invaluable information on achieving and maintaining good health. He writes about vegetarianism and why vegetarians live longer. He defines pH and alkaline/acid balance in the body and its vital role in maintaining vitality. He discusses how our emotions influence our health and much more. A complete book on cleansing: Most likely the best book on internal cleansing that you will ever read; Cleanse & Purify Thyself, Book 1, clearly explains the whys and wherefores of cleansing with guidelines of how to comfortably and effectively cleanse and purify yourself! An informative and inspiring must read for anyone curious about improving their health or contemplating a cleanse!

Product Description


Very educational and intriguing. I found answers in this book that I've been searching for for years. I'm grateful that I've learned about cleansing and have figured out my own health issues, which doctors could not. I recommend this book to EVERYONE, because it can and will benefit everyone. --http://www.ariseandshine.com/books/cleanse-purify-thyself-book-1.html

About the Author

Dr. Anderson is a naturopathic doctor, medical researcher, nutritionist, iridologist, and herbalist. Dr. Anderson has been on the Board of Directors for International Society of Naturopathy and is a faculty member at the University of Natural Medicine. Through his two books, Cleanse & Purify Thyself Book One and Book Two and his world famous Arise and Shine Herbal Cleanse Products, Dr. Anderson unequivocally revealed the awesome power of keeping our body s internal environment clean. His teachings and the effectiveness of his Original Master Cleanse Program, also referred to as Transformational Cleansing, has been accredited for having sparked the internal cleansing movement into its present trend. He is involved in the movement to help people understand how our consciousness controls our health. Using scientific data, Dr. Anderson has shown that our subconscious patterns control our hormones and ultimately defines our state of health and everything that happens to us. He states that true healing requires the resolution of traumatized emotions stored in our subconscious and the removal of interference patterns that limit us. His search for better health began at the age of 7, when he developed a severe over-acid condition that was linked to drinking too much milk. This condition soon triggered alkalosis, a life threatening conditioning that was triggered by severe electrolyte deficiencies. During that period he developed one illness after another including the mumps, chicken pox s, constipation, constant ear and sinus infections, rheumatic Fever, then asthma, enlarged heart, damaged heart valves, kidney problems, failing eyesight, ADD, hearing problems, bone growth mutations, fatigue, depression and much more. His condition was so severe that he was not expected to live past 40. From then on he would be plagued with one problem after another until he finally began learning the true art of healing. In 1963 Dr. Anderson began to study with a medical mystic who understood human function at levels that have never been put into print. From her he learned anatomy at levels that have not yet been researched by medical science. He also learned how emotions are transferred from subconscious into our physiology and control our chemistry, our health and every factor in our lives. Most important of all, he learned how emotional patterns that may be dominating a person s personality, causing health problems, relationships issues, bad habits, financial problems and numerous other issues, can be completely eliminated in just minutes by the eradication of the emotional pattern. From her amazing example he was inspired to practice the art of purification, vegetarian diet and the release of emotions stored deeply in the subconscious. His twelve years with her changed him forever. Dr. Anderson became a student of Dr. Bernard Jensen, while staying at Dr. Jensen s Retreat Center he met White Medicine Crow who taught him how to live off the land eating nothing but the fresh wild herbs. While on an three month expedition in the wilderness, White Crow and Dr. Anderson began to eliminate massive amounts of mucoid plaque, a term coined by Dr. Anderson that describes collections of intestinal mucins that are secreted by the goblet cells of the intestines, when attacked by strong acids or toxins. Both Crow and Dr. Anderson began to experience major transformations in their physical and emotional health as well. By the time they had completed their third herbal expedition, Dr. Anderson was able to determine which herbs were responsible for this astonishing cleansing. From this experience, he developed Chomper and Herbal Nutrition for people who wanted to detoxify and cleanse their body and emotions. Thus he created Arise and Shine to help distribute these products. One year later he wrote his first book Cleanse and Purify Thyself.

It really does work - I tried it, its hard going but the results are fantastic and the feel good factor afterwards is wonderful. But !!!! to make it work you have to be very strict with yourself. I cannot praise it enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you do the cleanse, your life will change 14 Nov 2005
By Sarah Luciani - Published on Amazon.com
I was reading one review where it is stated that the book sounds like an infomercial for his cleanse products. In some ways it did sound like he was trying to sell his products. But the book was absolutely fascinating. The success stories amazing, and if you have an interest in natural health and cleansing the body this book is an excellent read. I found his spiritual references quite enjoyable.

Now here is where the great part comes in... I decided okay, I am going to try buying his herbal products. You don't have to buy the big expensive cleanse kit, you can buy an item called chompers, and herbal nutrition and get psyllium and liquid bentonite at your local health food stores. It really isn't that costly. I have never done such an effective cleanse in my life. I am still doing it, the gentle phase, and it is unbelievable. I read about this awful mucoid plaque and I never though that I would be one to "clean out" that way. Believe me, this plaque is real! I won't get into details, but this has never happened on any of those other cleanses I have tried. His cleanse works if you do it. Just reading the book is interesting too, if you decide not to do the cleanse.I HIGHLY recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book on the road to better health! 29 April 2003
By Rhonald A. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
This book was lent to me, at a time when I am actively researching answers to optimal health. I gave this book a very good rating, even though there are few things I don't completely agree with. Since I am very open minded, I enjoy reading many books, and comparing to see which ones seem to make sense, and resonate with me.
I have long known about the perils of treating "symptoms" as though they were a disease. Dis-ease is the end result of a cause, and symptoms are nature's warning signs, much like the oil or engine light in a car. Does one unscrew the bulb because they are tired of looking at the light? Every cause has an effect, and many times the effect shows up many years later.
Based on what I know about Wellness, Dr. Anderson has done his homework. There is a great deal of critically important information here. The book is very frank, and is a "wake up" call to better health. Some parts will even bring a chuckle or two. It is not for the closed minded however, and/or, those who think there is nothing they can do about their challenges, and/or continue to rely on others to take control of [destroy?] their health. Is this book perfect? No, I don't believe any one source [human] can be perfect, as there are simply too many variables. The Creator is the only one who knows all.
The religious references offer an interesting perspective, and will prompt one to do some investigating. His views on meat eating vs vegetarianism will do the same. Personally, I know that being a strict vegetarian did not work for me. The best parts of the book are the lengthy chapters on how our body is designed to work, and how what we put into it affects that process.
In my opinion, if more people had a better understanding of basic anatomy, vs the desire to eat for taste, appearance, and advertised food trends, we would be empowered to make better decisions, and be in much better health. I intend to begin the cleanse on May 5, 2003, and I am looking forward to the results.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must-read for anyone interested in being healthy 27 Mar 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book should be compulsory reading for everyone. It explains why we are unhealthy and how to overcome or prevent illness. It is a deep book but easy to read and is backed up throughout by research and facts. It is shocking, surprising, revealing and thought provoking. It should also be compulsory reading for all who practise medicine. It is also a terrific back-up for raw-food vegans but he does not push this, merely reccomends it. He has developed a system for cleansing which he speaks about in the book, so not only does he provide the answers for health but the means for achieving it. Perfect health and the perfect body is posible, if you want radiant health and happiness, forget nasty medical procedures, plastic surgery, liposuction etc, BUY THIS BOOK instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Cleanse Program Out There! 28 Aug 2001
By Tanya - Published on Amazon.com
I went on Dr. Anderson's program about 7 years ago the first time and got rid of a bad case of acne, plus lost 10 lbs and felt great. I gave my excellent old book away to a friend who really needed it for his health. Last month I saw Dr. Anderson's updated book and bought it. It is a vast improvement on the last one -- color photos, testimonials from participants, etc. This book is well written as well as a fun read. It opens your eyes to how bad the typical U.S. diet really is. It really motivates you to clean your system out. I am currently in my second week of the cleanse and feel very energetic and positive, my lethargy and lack of motivation is gone. I am buying this book for my brother and sisters for their birthdays.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Review 7 April 2003
By Joshua T. Mundy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Bad: The book is a long info-mercial for his cleanse products. Very little that is in this book is not at his website. He also injects some strange pseudo-Christian beliefs into the book which may make some readers uncomfortable.
Good: This book helped me better realize that I must take control of my own health. The modern medical establishment is not there for your health! Over the past few months, I have lost 15 pounds and feel much better. Was the book the key? Not entirely, but it did help in my learning process.
