• Pure air
  • Sunlight
  • Abstemiousness
  • Rest
  • Exercise
  • Proper diet
  • The use of water
  • Trust in Divine power – these are the true remedies.

Every person should have a knowledge of nature’s remedial agencies and how to apply them. It is essential both to understand the principals involved in the treatment of the sick and to have a practical training that will enable one to apply this knowledge.

 The use of natural remedies requires an amount of care and effort that many are not willing to give. Nature’s process of healing and upbuilding is gradual, and to impatient people it seems slow. The surrender of hurtful indulgences requires sacrifices, but in the end it will be found that nature, unrestricted, does her work wisely and well. Those who persevere in obedience to her laws will be rewarded with health of body and health of mind.

 Too little attention is generally given to preserving one’s health. It is far better to prevent disease than to know how to treat it when contracted. It is the duty of every person, for his or her own sake, and for the sake of humanity, to be informed in regard to laws of life and to obey conscientiously. All need to become acquainted with that most wonderful of all organisms, the human body. They should understand the functions of the various organs and the dependence of one upon another for the health action of all. They should study the influence of the mind on the body and of the body and the mind, and the laws which are they governed.
