Bircher-Benner 2 Manual for Patients with Liver and Gallbladder Conditions

Manual for patients with liver and gallbladder conditions

The latest biophysically scientific insights on life energy, food energy and the effects of fresh raw fruit and vegetable food. Comprehensive instructions for the application and preparation of the vegetable raw-food diet according to Bircher-Benner. This manual is based on long experience in the treatment of patients who have been healed by Bircher’s order therapy. The earlier editions have been supplemented with many notes from basic research and the new results of clinical gastroenterological research, and the dietetic section has also been slightly revised without losing the high quality of Bircher’s recipes. The manual gives the patient or person with a weakness of the liver the required knowledge and the indispensable practical instruction to enable him to stop progression of his disease and initiate continuous healing steps. The book can be a valuable aid for the doctor practicing holistic treatment, helping him or her to provide patients with instructions for changing their lifestyles towards the order therapy.

Since its establishment by Max Oscar Bircher-Benner, the order therapy for liver and gall diseases has been researched for more than one hundred years at the Bircher-Benner clinic and in private practices under careful observation of its healing effects. Throughout these years, the many thousands of desperate patients who recovered from their rapidly worsening diseases have been our best teachers. With a strong will to be healed, they successfully followed the instructions of the order therapy and enabled great insights whose confirmation is only now slowly being reflected in general medical research.

The Physician of the Future


‘We  Exist  in  Direct  Proportion to the Amount of Chaos that We Can Sustain and Dissipate’ 

Ilia Prigogine said this upon accepting the 1977 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Life is a constant battle against chaos. The only place where order arises spontaneously from chaos is inside living cells. Our cells are dissipative systems. Due to their intensive storage of photons coming from photosynthesis, their energy is so far removed from thermodynamic equilibrium that the second law of thermodynamics and thus the chaos principle become invalid. The only possible explanation for the high energy in the cells is their intense photon storage and amplification. If we feed on living plants that use photosynthesis, order and regeneration arise. If we feed ourselves with inanimate food, our cells degenerate and aging occurs. In addition, it has been scientifically proven that the intestinal flora has a considerable influence on our psyche and emotions. 

World history was a constant alternation of order and chaos and frequently reflected people’s degree of health. If we order the inside of our cells, not only our biological system, but also our minds are in greater harmony and healthy people do fewer unreasonable things. “Mens sana in corpore sano est.” (A healthy mind exists in a healthy body.)

The Physician of the Future

At the peak of his life's work, Dr. Maximilian Bircher-Benner wrote the book The Physician of the Future. It is an autobiographical work by a great doctor who healed thousands of people and saved many lives; the description of the life of a doctor who always devoted his life to the search for truth and to encouraging humanity in the world around him. Studying his career can be fascinating for any reader. It’s a textbook describing a new kind of humanity and will be of interest for every young doctor as well as for nurses, lay individuals and, in fact, everyone who is professionally involved in dealing with people. It shows how to prevent illness and to attempt to cure the ills of humanity. It’s a book that it is certainly well worth reading.
