The well-known advocate of unprocessed foods and the theoretician behind the ascendancy of Jack La Lanne here presents the religious and nutritional foundations behind his system of healthy diet and other esoteric practices (he recommends keeping a carton of earth in your bedroom; he also advocates a regular Empiro-dynamic sitz bath). The printed seal, intended to dispel idle curiosity ("Do not break this seal until you fully appreciate the importance to yourself of the message contained in this book") has been broken but is present.
