the NATURE CURE SERIES: BOOK ONE
Gut Instinct: Mrs Snook’s Diet
'Gut Instinct: Mrs Snook's Diet' tells the story of outspoken vegan and nature cure pioneer, Dorothea Snook.
Science writer Greta Puls rediscovers Mrs Snook's raw food gut-cleanse diet 25 years after the disgraced naturopath faced criminal proceedings following the death of her elderly brother at her farm in Northam, Western Australia.
The story of Mrs Snook and her controversial diet spans four generations of women over two continents, and also tells the story of Mrs Snook's formidable Boston and Columbia trained mentor, Doctor Alice Capon - a contemporary of the founder of naturopathy, Benedict Lust.
'Gut Instinct' includes Mrs Snook's original three-month, gut-cleanse diet plan, and forms the basis of series 1 of the Raw podcast.
