Philosophy of Natural Therapeutics: The Classic Nature Cure Guide to Health and Healing

Front Cover
Vermilion, 2005 - Health & Fitness - 327 pages
Originating in Europe in the early twentieth century, the Nature Cure movement laid the foundations for much of complementary medicine and naturopathy as we know it today. Dr Henry Lindlahr was one of the pioneers of Nature Cure who popularised the movement in the West. Eloquent and passionate about his theories, in this ground-breaking book Dr Lindlahr outlines the principles and practical applications of Nature Cure, to create a comprehensive philosophy of natural therapeutics. He considers the role of diet, natural remedies and preventative therapies as well as other practical ways to maintain and promote physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Philosophy of Natural Therapeutics is in many respects a work that remains as relevant today as when it was written. Well ahead of its time, it highlights the interdependency of humankind, offers methods to prevent disease, and lays down the basic natural laws upon which health depends.
