Percy Weston grew up on a farm in north eastern Victoria, Australia. He was a keen student and won a scholarship to attend Xavier College in Melbourne. While at school there was a failed experiment with phosphorus pentoxide when the student was unable to close the door of the cabinet which had the ignited chemical in it. The fumes caused the boy to collapse, just like the rabbits on Percy’s farm when they ate phosphorus soaked baits. Being curious, Percy set out to discover why. Keen to go on to study medicine at the end of school Percy’s plans were thwarted when cattle duffers stole his father’s cattle and so with no funding Percy was needed back at the farm.
Here he stayed for the next 80 years, growing tobacco and vegetables, propagating groves of walnut and chestnut trees, tending his orchard garden and attending to the needs of his flocks and solving problem as they inevitably arose. Being passionately curious and a keen observer of nature, he recorded in diary form all the changes he saw in agriculture throughout the century. Most notable of these were the agricultural practices introduced in the latter half of the 20th century and their impacts – the introduction of chemical pesticides and herbicides and widespread use of NPK fertilisers, including the increasing use of superphosphate – that he concluded were contributing to diseases that had been rare in his boyhood.
So just like a detective, Percy searched for answers. He had theories about most things and studied chemistry to test whenever he could. Why his sheep had cancerous growths on their ears, why did mice and rats devouring the superphosphate rich grains also develop cancers? Percy concluded that it was the mineral balance which had been upset by overuse of phosphate that had been the cause. He carried out multiple experiments to prove his theory. His solutions, including the realisation that mineral balance is the key to harmony and health in the soil and in the body led him to working out what this balance should be thus he was able to bring about a remarkable turnaround in the health of his crops, his sheep and in the health of neighbors and immediate family.
At the age of 97 Percy Weston published the first edition of his best-selling book, Cancer: Cause & Cure: Nature’s Secrets Exposed in which he documented how he turned his farm into his “living natural laboratory” Parts of the narrative are dramatic, such as his defiance of the doctors when, soon after his marriage, they demanded that his wife have a hysterectomy due to cancer of the uterus. This was turned around with her taking what is now known as Percy’s Powder which is a unique dietary supplement which took years to perfect. The formulation is set to restore the imbalance of acids and alkaline in our system and contain Magnesium sulfate. Potassium sulfate, Iron sulfate, Zinc sulfate, Manganese sulfate, Iodine as potassium iodide, Selenium as seleomethionine. Percy’s Powder Percy also prepared a list of foods for balance that are listed here: https://www.rejuvalift.com.au/percy-weston-food-chart.html
Before his book came out Percy was especially frustrated that the authorities he contacted did not want to hear about the remarkable cures reported by some of the hundreds of people who visited his farm for advice. Percy Weston was an identity in North East Victoria: leading horticulturalist, local historian, humanitarian. In the book he relates how he cured himself of crippling arthritis and tells of many other wonderful stories and includes letters from others plus other successful approaches to cure cancer. Truly fascinating read for any thinking farmer.
