Every once in a while a person comes along who changes the way we look at things. T. C.
Fry was one of those men. T. C. has had a bigger influence on the health and eating habits
of the nation than perhaps any other person. He wrote tirelessly for 25 years, and along
the way he taught many who have followed in his footsteps as best-selling authors
in this field. T. C. was unrelenting in his efforts to get the word out about Natural
Hygiene, particularly since this lifestyle added 25 years of robust health to his
life--which he had never experienced before his discovery of this teaching.
I count myself among the Natural Hygiene authors influenced by T. C. Others are: Harvey
and Marilyn Diamond, famous for their book, Fit for Life, Marti Wheeler, Dr. Gina Shaw,
Prof. Rozalind Gruben (look for her upcoming book, Raw Nutritional Science), and David
Klein, to name just a few.
David takes his mission seriously. T.C.'s influence, both personal and through his books,
helped him overcome a debilitating gastro-intestinal disorder (ulcerative colitis) in
1984. He has gone on to become one of the world's finest health educator-writers,
spreading a healthy message at every opportunity. YND is no exception. Within these pages,
David has compiled his most insightful "how to" writings with many of the
classic writings of T. C. Fry. Taken out of context, much of this information might seem
unconvincing. Taken together, YND is a powerful how to manual that leaves very
little unsaid about creating and maintaining vibrant health through healthful eating and
If you are ready to become truly influenced by natural health sense, YND is for you. If
you are interested in achieving top level health, cutting straight to the chase and
replacing your old self-destructive habits with constructive ones, read this deeply
illuminating book. If you want to chew on food for thought that will challenge your
beliefs and encourage you to improve yourself, David Klein has put together a winner for
