Why Suffer?, by Ann Wigmore
Ann Wigmore, the mother of the living-foods diet, recounts her inspiring story of fighting dietary ignorance and disease. She begins with her early childhood experiences watching her grandmother heal the sick in war-torn Central Europe. The knowledge Ann gained from these observations led her to discover the healing powers of wheatgrass, the bedrock of her living-foods diet.
Ann leveraged her success in overcoming illness to found the Hippocrates Health Institute in Boston and develop the regimen of wheatgrass, sprouts, and greens that has healed so many critically ill individuals. This compelling narrative weaves together how Annís religious faith supported natural healing and how her positive nature and independent spirit overcame every limitation she encountered.
