This book is very archaic, written in 1928, though republished in 1979. It contains a good basic premise that 'Nature Cures", that the body can heal itself when harmful irritants are removed and proper nutrition and needs are met. Much of the book is filled with incorrect assumptions, lack of proper studies and references, and proven-incorrect information. Emphasis in the book is also placed on typhoid, use of opium, the need to wear near to nothing to get as much sun exposure as possible, etc., without any updated information for current ill-health problems, current drugs in use, current problems with damaged ozone and air pollutions, etc. Assumptions made include caffeine, drugs, alcohol, opium, and electrical treatments all are purely stimulants which exhaust the body of energy - irregardless of scientifically proven results showing the different bio-chemical and bio-electrical interactions of each separate entity. This book should have been moved to the trash can years ago.
