Fifty Years Fighting is the sequel to Jan de Vries's popular first autobiographical volume, A Step At A Time, which prompted readers to ask for more information about the life of the legendary alternative medicine guru.
In Fifty Years Fighting, de Vries focuses on his lengthy struggle for the recognition of alternative medicine.
He details how he was threatened with imprisonment by the Inspectorate of Health early in his career and reveals how the same organisation is now promoting this form of medicine today to the extent that, in his home country of Holland, a great majority of doctors have adopted alternative medicine in the way that he envisioned and campaigned for many years before.
In the second part of his autobiographical trilogy, de Vries also describes some of the methods of alternative medicine he has used down the years and the remarkable results he has obtained while administering these treatments.
Fifty Years Fighting is packed with intriguing case histories from Jan's vast experience of practising homoeopathy.
Some are very surprising, while others give helpful tips for the reader. Invaluable advice is offered as to what patients can do to help themselves in certain circumstances and on how to obtain physical, mental - and most importantly - spiritual health in life.
