= Energy Unlimited
by John H.
the most frequent complaint that I've heard from people is that they
lack energy. Men, women and children of all ages seem to have this
common affliction. Some people just assume that it is natural and
there is nothing they can do about it and carry on from there never
showing a spark of life and just sort of dragging themselves through
from day to day.
across a lady in New Zealand who told me that every day for years
she had just dragged herself on from one day to the next. She was
in her early 60's when I met her and she just accepted it as one of
these things that she had to live with until she died and there was
nothing she could do about it. This was a tragic mistake. A genuine,
tragic mistake because the woman didn't have to suffer through all
these years. What was even worse was that the woman was an intelligent
woman in practically every way... she raised a family, she had everything
to live for and her husband was an influential, wealthy lawyer, they
has the most beautiful of homes -- everything and yet she just had
no energy. The doctor couldn't tell her why and that was the way she
lived and she didn't care whether she lived or died. In fact, she
told me that she didn't care if she died that night.
I want to assure you that this chronic fatigue and lack of pep and
energy are definitely not normal and they certainly are not an indication
of health. The story I told you is a true story but the big tragedy
is that it is multiplied hundreds of thousands of times in America
today let alone in Britain and in other advanced nations throughout
the world. I'm telling you here and now it doesn't have to be and
the remedy, the means of ending this is at hand and it's as simple
as eating a handful of living grains. I should also stress that this
affects, as I mentioned at the start, people of all ages starting
in their teens. Furthermore, let me tell you this. When this happens
to you or anyone else you get sick, really sick. Basically you are
suffering from malnutrition. Here you've been kidding yourself that
you're perfectly well fed because you eat the best and the richest
and the most expensive of food.
me to suggest that you may be eating what are normally considered
proper foods in wide variety and still you're lethargic and sort of
dead to the world from the neck up. Yes, and from the neck down, too.
not my intent to try and give you a picture of the way the body acts
and reacts to food and about the chemistry of the body and the machine
the body is which most doctors and nutritionists try to pawn off on
people to prove how smart they are and how much schooling the've had.
All they succeed in doing when they finish is beclouding and fogging
up the true picture and they haven't convinced you nor themselves
here, whether you eat three or four meals a day or whether you eat
6 meals a day or only 1 meal a day is of little consequence. It is
what you eat. Let's even take it a step further. You can eat all of
the right foods... even if I told you what foods to eat to give you
energy... yes, you can eat all of them and still have no energy and
still feel as bad as ever.
start at the beginning. The energy goods are carbohydrates. Yes, people
who eat lots of proteins seem to do all right too and foods generally
contain protein, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins. All of
these names that nutritionists throw at you to impress you are truly
meaningless. What you need is live, whole food and that's just what
you do not get when you buy commercial food.
speaking if you want energy you eat carbohydrates and grains are among
the best of the carbohydrates. So the solution is an easy one, isn't
it? Just get lots of grains into your system. But yet if you took
and fragmented or refined the carbohydrates and cooked them the chances
of getting any genuine energy out of them are remote, if not absolutely
are lacking in energy you can restore your vitality and whether or
not you ever had any great strength you can be filled with vim. Now
let me tell you of my 3-V breakfast cereal.
formula is based upon the early Bircher-Benner Muesli system. The
first time that I tried muesli my remark was, "If I've got to
eat stuff like this to be healthy, then I don't want to be healthy!"
expect to be given any laurels for a remark like that. In fact, I'm
thoroughly ashamed of that remark. However, I'm not trying to hide
it... that is what I said and that is what I am telling you that I
it so happened that the party who made this mixture for me at the
time didn't practice the best means and methods of preparation and
there was no great attempt made to make it palatable. It was supposed
to be good for you and that meant, it seems, i didn't have to be appealing
or tasty. Nevertheless, my remark was positively not justified. Later,
why, I gained some knowledge and experience.
the formula carefully and came up with the rhyme and the reason behind
Dr. Bircher-Benner's great introduction. He certainly was way ahead
of his time, but it proved that mankind was slow in recognizing its
true merit. Actually, from my reading it was the first time a man
had recognized the value of raw food in the human diet. Therefore,
I began to use it and I still couldn't take it to my breast, so to
speak. It was all right and I could eat it but it was a sort of a
chore or should I say, a bore.
kept saying to myself, "I want health -- I want it badly -- so
I'll have to put up with a bit of food that isn't so appetizing. So
what if it doesn't taste so hot?"
a more advanced thought occurred to me, "Why not try to make
it palatable? You've got access to good food and you know a bit about
it, so work on it."
just that and I got my wife interested and we began a series of experiments.
Every day we tried a new batch for breakfast. Sometimes we added and
sometimes we subtracted. Sometimes we put more of this and less of
that and other times we put less of this and more of that. Well, after
monkeying around for about two years we came up with the answer to
what I was seeking... (a) 100% nutrition, (b) palatability, (c) availability,
In fact it was so good and tasteful to eat that there was a great
temptation to overeat. The most important thing about this breakfast
food, or 3- V cereal as I call it, is that it fulfills the basic needs
of mankind. It is 100% nutrition and the items it contains are generally
available everywhere. Therefore, no one need be undernourished, not
even the poor.
you were to go out tomorrow to one of the health food stores and buy
some of the Bircher-Benner Muesli (it goes under various names) you'll
say, "What in blazes was Tobe squawking about when he said it
didn't taste good?"
it a jiffy! The package of muesli that you buy is by no means anything
like the original Bircher-Benner formula. In the first place, the
Bircher-Benner original formula, like my 3-V cereal, was 100% alive.
You can readily understand that if the Bircher-Benner Muesli that
you buy in the store was 100% alive then they couldn't keep it on
the shelves, simply because it would soon be crawling with various
living organisms, especially at store temperatures of 70 and 80 degrees.
Even under refrigeration it does not keep well enough.
ingredients contained in the store-bought Bircher-Benner Muesli are
excellent but they are dead. In my 3-V cereal, as in the original
Bircher-Benner Muesli, they are alive. Besides, most of these mueslis
are imported and very expensive. The recipe I will give you will enable
you to have a much, much better muesli at a very low price. Ounce
for ounce it will cost you even less than any packaged crummy cereal
on the market.
when I wound up with my 3-V cereal, it contained a lot more than the
Bircher-Benner formula. I made the additions and subtractions for
definite, positive reasons. To begin with, we are living in America,
not in Switzerland, and we have access to a much greater variety of
food than they have in Switzerland. We must also recognize that Bircher-Benner,
having discovered this about 100 years ago, did not have the benefit
of the scientific knowledge that we have today... but basically the
idea behind the Bircher-Benner Muesli was one of the greatest forward
steps in the history of mankind. This is a sincere statement on my
learned the value of variety. I have learned that soils do become
depleted, and most commercial grains are not thoroughly nutritionally
balanced. Therefore, I felt that by having a wide selection of different
grains from different areas of the country perfect balance could be
the big shortcomings that I found in the Bircher-Benner Muesli was
the lack of chlorophyll. I have taken the trouble to dig deeply and
study the merits of chlorophyll and they are tremendous... I should
say, earth0shattering. I pondered as to how to get this into a muesli.
I found the solution and that's why you find alfalfa herb in the formula.
that the Scotch people had kept alive and virile and mentally alert
on a diet that leaned fairly heavily on oats. That is why oats are
one of the main ingredients of my cereal. I've also learned that oats
are better flavored, creamier and more palatable than most other grains.
I also found out that oats lose less in the cooking than most other
grains, although this cereal is supposed to be used uncooked.
I began to study the ways and means of making it palatable. This was
accomplished by adding fresh and dried fruits.
wonder why I put so many things together in one formula. The reason,
I figured most people would if necessary deign to take those formula
for one meal a day so I made it a one shot deal and I put all my eggs
in one basket. I calculated that you might tackle my cereal for one
meal a day, so I had one chance and I was going to hit as hard as
I possibly could, with all my might, with that one blow.
are going to make this cereal I don't care where you get the ingredients
but my suggestion is that you get them organically grown, if possible.
But, organically grown or not, make sure you get them.
best ingredients that you can. None of them is expensive and if dried
fruits are too expensive, buy fresh fruits that are cheaper. If dried
peaches or dried apricots are too dear, use more raisins, use more
dried apples or dried pears or dates or figs.
the use of a bit of milk, but not much milk is required if you will
soak the 3-V cereal overnight. In fact, better still, you can soak
a whole batch -- enough to last a week -- and keep it in the refrigerator.
I don't think it will suffer any harm and by having it soaked, a lot
of water will be absorbed and you will required very little milk.
Better still, do without any milk. I say that again, better still,
do without any milk!
absolute and positive proof concerning the nutritive and the beneficial
value of the 3-V cereal because thousands of people through the years
have written or taken the trouble to tell me personally how much they
have benefited from using it.
note trying to sell you the cereal. I am giving you the formula. Follow
it as closely as possible and use it daily and feed it to your family.
Even if you have to persuade, coax, cajole or club your children into
taking it, do it for a few days. After that they'll take it on their
own and want or demand it.
do nothing else in my whole life for my fellow man but teach him the
merits of 3-V cereal, I will have earned my reward wherever or whatever
that amounts to.
like to clarify two points. First, the original Bircher- Benner
Muesli contained ground nuts. I deliberately omitted nuts because
they go rancid very quickly. Second, I now use and recommend only
whole grains -- not ground or cracked. I find that by soaking the
whole mixture together all of the seeds soften enough to allow grinding
and chewing without any great effort. Even hard cereals like barley
and rice will soften enough to make them chewable and digestible.
boasting or exaggerating, it is the finest, the best balanced, the most
nutritionous assembled food in the whole world. Be sure no flaked, rolled
grains... all whole grains.

day or at least every other day.
most advisable to soak the ingredients because I want to return the
water that was originally in the food and this can only be done by
allowing it to soak. I get best results and the most satisfying flavor
by making enough to last me a week and keeping it in the refrigerator
and then every day or every other day taking out the quantity that
I want for that meal. Following this recipe alone will correct the
condition... that is the lack of energy and will provide you with
energy, all day and all night, if you want it. Isn't it tragic that
most people in the world don't know this simple answer to a very difficult
now you're thinking this is just too easy, it is just too simple and
best of all it doesn't even cost much money. You can buy the ingredients
and mix the whole concoction yourself and it will only cost you pennies
for a good big breakfast. Why use it only for breakfast... use it
for lunch, use it for dinner and you can mix a batch of it to last
you a week for less money than it will cost you to buy a big package
of those cooked processed cereals that were proven by investigations
to contain more energy in the package than in the food. So unless
you act upon this suggestion you are depriving yourself of a body
full of pep and energy.
you eat food outlined in this recipe you are getting 100% nutrition.
You are not just getting energy, you're getting practically all of
the minerals and vitamins that your body requires to maintain itself
in perfect health. I have said for many long years that a handful
of grains and a handful of greens can sustain you in perfect health
indefinitely provided you don't cook them or process them or chemicalize
more point. The best energy food in the world can be knocked into
a cocked hat if you drink a lot of booze and if you smoke a lot of
cigarettes or cigars or smoke a pipe or take drugs. This food will
work if you permit it to work, if you don't interfere with it.
now you've got the answer. Do something about it and be filled with
pep all day, every day.
