THE ONE TRUE CAUSE OF DISEASE
In the early 1800s Isaac Jennings, M.D. quietly started a revolution in health care when he noticed that changes in lifestyle produced EXCELLENT RESULTS.
Dr. Jennings, after practicing as a traditional medical doctor for 20 years without getting any significant results, one day he faced a shortage of drugs during a fever outbreak in the summer of 1815, so people in town came to see him with all kinds of symptoms. But he didn't treat them because there weren't any drugs available.
All he could tell them was to go home, rest, and drink lots of fluids.
And what happened? Surprise, surprise these people got well, WITHOUT ANY MEDICINE!
Based on this, he decided to carry out an experiment: he was going to treat people using only placebos (dummy pills) and some common sense instructions that is, he would advise his patients to correct their lifestyle and diet to a more natural approach.
The results were excellent: his patients recovered in absolute record time compared to patients who had been medicated.
In 1822 he gave up medical pills, plasters, powders and potions and treated patients with pills made from bread and coloured water.
He then practised for a further 20 years the - "do nothing mode of treating disease." - Yale University conferred an honorary degree upon him in recognition of his great success substituting pills with placebos.
NOW WE KNOW THAT OUR BODY IS INHERENTLY HEALTHY AND SELF-HEALING AND ALWAYS STRIVES TO MAINTAIN OR RE-ESTABLISH OPTIMAL HEALTHFUL CONDITIONS.
There is no healing force outside the body. Dr. Isaac Jennings
Dr. Jennings is also the founder of the Natural Hygiene Philosophy. Natural Hygiene is a set of principles that people throughout human history have practiced to achieve and MAINTAIN optimum health. Natural Hygiene principles are based upon meeting the body's inherent, natural needs.
Remember, you can never poison your body into being healthy.
Twenty-five years in which I used prescribed drugs, and 33 years in which I have not used prescribed drugs, should make my belief that drugs are unnecessary and in most cases injurious, worth something to those who care to know the truth.
John H. Tilden, M.D. (1940)
