It was a brilliant Bavarian doctor and good friend—world expert in Live Cell Therapy—who introduced me to Cura Romana some twenty years ago. Here's how it happened:
One day, while visiting his clinic, I mentioned to him that ever since adolescence, I had struggled with my weight. He smiled.
"How much do you know about Cura Romana?" he asked.
"Cura Romana—the Roman Cure."
"Nothing," I replied, "What is it?"
Instead of telling me, he handed me a book written and privately published almost half a century ago by a British doctor—A.T.W Simeons.
"Read this," he said.
I did. I could not put it down.
WHAT A BOOK
"This guy claims to have discovered a cure for obesity." I told my doctor friend. "I find that very hard to believe." "Why not try it? Find out for yourself," he replied, smiling.
He knew me well. He knew that I never take anything on faith, no matter how many so-called "experts" tell me I should. I need to experience something first-hand. I have to know it from within.
GO FOR IT
Disbelieving and apprehensive, yet determined to find out if what Simeons had written was true, I show up at the nurse's office first thing next morning. She weighs me, then injects me with 125 IU of a natural substance called human chorionic gonadotropin. She gives me a diet sheet setting out what foods I can and cannot eat, and tells me exactly how much of each I am allowed. She says I must stop using my usual face creams and body lotions. She explains that any animal or vegetable fats or oils in them will be absorbed through the skin and interfere with my fat loss. Meanwhile, my doctor friend forbids me to go for my morning run—the one thing I loved doing each day and which I thought was keeping my body from getting fatter. "You don't need it," he said. "Let the protocol do its job. Just trust the process."
After one week on the Cura Romana protocol, eating protein foods like beef, fish and chicken, plus green vegetables and a couple of pieces of fruit each day, I had already lost a lot of weight. I had no hunger. I had energy to spare. I was sleeping as deeply and peacefully as a child, yet seemed to need only six hours a night. I couldn't remember ever having felt so good.
THERE'S MORE TOO
My skin glowed. When I looked in the mirror I could see that the true shape of my face was emerging. My bone structure had long been covered over by puffiness. By the end of three weeks, I had shed all of the fat which I had never been able to get rid of, no matter how hard I'd tried. All I did to make it happen was just to do as my doctor friend advised—I kept following the protocol day-by-day.
It was the revelation of how powerful, simple and effective Simeons' protocol can be that set me on a journey lasting two decades—a journey fueled by the passion to share my own experience with others who suffer, as I once did, from carrying a body which we know is not our true body, and longing to set our true body free once and for all. This is the story behind my son and I creating Leslie Kenton's Cura Romana®. If you have long struggled with your weight as I did —with all the frustration, disappointment and self-criticism that accompanies the struggle—may our Roman Cure help you end forever your own struggle.
