Raw Food, A Natural Remedy For Cancer
‘Why Be Scared Of Cancer?’ This is the title of Dr Eva Hill’s famous healing book which was published in New Zealand in 1979 by G.K. Moore. Her other book is ‘A Simple Guide To Natural Health’.
Dr Eva Hill, who was born Eva Day, is a famous New Zealand doctor who promoted a ‘natural’ cure for cancer. She helped save many lives through her alternative cancer therapy, and was convicted because of it, ironically enough, at the court in Christchurch where her father worked as a magistrate.
The famous cricketer W.G. Grace, who was a doctor, was her uncle.
She was outstanding for her time, being one of the first women, and one of the youngest students, to graduate from the Otago University Medical School, in New Zealand.
Dr Hill worked as a GP for many years, and entered politics in 1954. However, she developed cancer in an old wound in her cheek which changed the direction of her career.
Surgery on the cancer was not successful, and so she decided to follow a naturopathic treatment at the famous Hoxsey naturopathic clinic in Dallas, Texas. This treatment cured her cancer entirely
Dr Eva Hill came back to New Zealand in 1956 and began to treat people using the ‘natural’ cure for all ills. She was convinced that raw foods would work to cure all degenerative disease, and all cancers, including malignant melanoma.
Dr Eva Hill promoted organic food, and encouraged people to grow their own. She gave talks on the subject of growing organic food and how good nutrition was the key to cancer prevention and good health. She was a foundation member of the Soil and Health Foundation.
Dr Eva Hill campaigned against the fluoridation of water, as she believed that this practice contributed to diseases like cancer.
The well-publicized success of her own cure, as well as the successes she was having with her patients, brought her under the spot-light of the medical profession and the powerful multi-national drug companies, who did their best to stop her practising. Dr Max Gerson was another one of the many doctors around this time who was punished by the medical profession for using unorthodox methods of treatment. He was forced to stop practicing medicine in America, and so he set up his cancer clinic in Mexico, where the American authorities had no sway.
She was charged under the Health Act, N.Z., and was virtually convicted in court because of not using drugs in her treatments.
Dr Hill appealed with the help of her supporters, and won her case.
She continued with her natural healing methods, curing and helping untold people during the course of her career.
As a general rule for maintaining good health, she advised avoiding all animal proteins, all cereals, white sugar and salt. This is the same advice given by Walter Last, a healer who worked in New Zealand a little later than Dr Eva Hill. Walter also cured many people of so-called terminal illnesses using natural remedies.
