Max Heindel’s Science of Nutrition and Diet Plan

In his book The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception, Max Heindel wrote a chapter about the science of nutrition, explaining in depth the correlation between good nutrition and ability to progress spirituality, as well as which food benefits spiritual development, and which type of food should be avoided to prevent fast decay of the body.
