Asher, Cash. Bacteria,
Inc. Milwaukee: Lee Foundation For Nutritional Research,
Here are a few sentences from the booklet: "At the conclusion of his long and thorough experimentations, Dr. Campbell arrived at two important conclusions. 1. That smallpox is transmitted only by the bite of an infected bug. 2. That perversion of nutrition determines the degree of virulence. . . Today, the bedbug has all but vanished from this vacuumed and disinfected land of ours. . . . But the practice of vaccination is as popular as it was in the days of the plague. . . . Why, then, does the vaccination fetish persist? We must find the answer in economics---in the billion dollar serum industry and its correlative industry, medical practice."

Healers rarely write their own life story, but Benjamin was more than merely a healer. He was also a Theosophist, acquainted with Krishnamurti, blessed with knowledge of his own whole lives history and naturally highly spiritually aware. Benjamin's book also conveys the ethos and events of holistic healing in the UK from the 1930s through the war years. And it is a pleasant read.

N.D. Everybody's Guide To Nature Cure. Surrey:
Health For All Publishing Co., 1967.
An immensely popular book that went through many reprintings between the first edition of 1936 and the Sixteenth Impression that is reproduced here. How many more printings this useful title enjoyed is not known. According to Dr. John Fielder who lent his copy to this library for scanning, "When it was in print it was considered the "handbook of Nature Cure", equal to, if not surpassing Henry Lindlahr's." The book has two main uses: for the beginner it explains the basics of why the body gets sick and how it heals very thoroughly. Then, the main section of the book is an encyclopedic listing of Nature-Cure handlings for disease conditions. A rather fat book; downloads as a PDF of 1.53 mb. OUT OF PRINT.

G., M.D. (1965). Food Is Your Best Medicine. New York:
Here find one complete chapter and the front matter. There is only this small sample of the full text online because an inexpensive Random House paperback edition is currently available. Bieler, a disciple of John Tilden, was the last well-known fully-accredited M.D. that I am aware of who practiced hygienic medicine entirely without reliance on drugs or surgery and who wrote lucidly about his practice and never lost his license or fought to avoid doing jail time. Bieler's origin, through "modern" training and standard medical orientation gives his book a uniquely authoritative and up-to-date theoretical stance that Tilden can seem to lack. Dr. Moser gave away dozens of copies of paperback copies Bieler's book to her clients over the years. Everyone interested in natural medicine should own and read this book. Food Is Your Best Medicine is on my "read every five years list." Every time I do reread it I find new and amazing insights I was too stupid to realize were present the time I last read it.

A Time To Heal: Triumph Over Cancer, The Therapy Of The Future.
London: Penguin, 1985.
Beata Bishop, a British journalist and author, received the dread diagnosis of widespread melanoma, normally a death sentence. Her surgeon offered her no hope for survival, nor did the grim statistics for "the black death" as it is called. Then Beata became aware of a nutritional therapy that was offered in Tijuana, Mexico, the Gerson Therapy. This book is the story of her odyssey of survival, recovery and rebirth into vibrant health using the natural processes of her own body to heal and defeat the cancer. It also details the psychological healing that accompanies the physical processes of recovery. Bishop is a sensitive, articulate writer, aware of and able to express the feelings of despair, hope and joy that she experienced. This book has been translated into German, Czech and Hungarian, and Bishop now lectures on her therapy, twenty years after her diagnosis of "terminal"." (Howard D. Straus, grandchild of Max Gerson)
March 25th 2012 Beata Bishop celebrated the 90th birthday of Charlotte Gerson (daughter of Max Gerson) as a long time survivor of the Gerson therapy. OUT OF PRINT.

Budwig, Dr. Johanna.
Krebs ein Fett Problem. Freiburg: Hyperioin-Verlag,
Bei diesem Buch handelt es sich um ein weiteres Kochbuch von Dr. Johanna Budwig: z.B. Müsli als Rohkostsuppen, Salate aus Wildkräutern, besondere Getränke für Kranke und Gesunde. Brigitte Herold schreibt in ihrer Rezension zu Krebs ein Fettproblem. Richtige Wahl und Verwendung der Fette, dass die großen Erkenntnisse von Frau Dr. Johanna Budwig ein Schattendasein führten. Sie habe mit ihrer Öl-Eiweiß-Kost ein wahres Stoffwechsel-Wunder entwickelt. Bis heute blieben ihre Erkenntnisse leider nur einer Minderheit zugänglich, ihre Bücher seien heute zum Großteil nicht mehr erhältlich. Daß Fettsäuren der eigentliche Lichtträger und Lichtspeicher im Organismus seien, werde nun von anderen Seiten der Wissenschft bestätigt (F. A. Popp). Auch neue Erkenntnisse der Diabetes- und Allergie-Forschung gäben ihr immer wieder recht. Downloads as a PDFof 8 mb. OUT OF PRINT.
Budwig, Dr. Johanna.
Das Fettsyndrom. Munster: Heinreich Buschmann, 1959.
Dr. Johanna Budwig war überzeugt, dass Krebs durch eine Störung des Fettstoffwechsels der menschlichen Körperzellen bedingt sei und durch eine bestimmte Diät, nämlich ihre Öl-Eiweiß-Kost, heilbar sei. Sie erzielte bei ihren Patienten Erfolgsraten bis 90%. In diesem Werk wird detailliert beschrieben, wo im Körper überall gute Fette die Gesundheit erhalten und gehärtete, unnatürliche Fette insbesondere Transfettsäuren zu chronischen Erkrankungen und schlimmstenfalls zu Krebs führen.

Dr. Johanna Budwig schildert in diesem zweibändigen Werk, dass sie das angebotene Schweigegeld der Fettindustrie (vgl. S. 242, 275), die in der Margarine enthaltenen gehärteten Fette (Transfettsäuren) nicht öffentlich als gesundheitsschädlich und krebsfördernd anzuprangern, nicht entgegengenommen hat und dies teuer bezahlen musste (S. 275: «Wenn Sie diese Gelder nicht annehmen und der Auflage zu schweigen nicht zustimmen, dann werden Sie wissenschaftlich und wirtschaftlich erledigt sein bis an Ihr Lebensende.»). Dr. Budwig verlor ihre Arbeitsstelle, konnte in keiner anerkannten wissenschaftlichen Zeitschrift publizieren, musste ihre Bücher im Selbstverlag herausbringen, ihr Medizinstudium wurde behindert, so dass sie dieses aufgeben musste, wurde mit zahlreichen Strafverfahren eingedeckt und auch die Steuerfahndung wurde zur Drangsalierung operationalisiert.

Dr. Charles. A.R. Bats, Mosquitoes and Dollars. Boston:
The Stratford Company, 1925.
Charles Campbell showed the city of San Antonio, Texas how to rid the area of mosquitos in order to quell a yellow fever epidemic. This was easily accomplished by creating bat roosts. The book has great relevance today. Many people today believe that West Nile Virus is a real threat, leaving no alternative to using poisons to kill mosquitos. But poisons are useless in the long run, highly costly, kill natural mosquito preditors much less destroying entire ecosystems. Campbell's book represents a sane solution. PUBLIC DOMAIN.

Coca, Arthur F., M.D. The Pulse
Test. New York: Lyle Stewart, 1956.
Coca viewed many disease conditions as being caused by food (and other sorts of) allergies and this is fully explained in his book. There are other easy-to use and quick but less "scientific" ways to test allergies than Coca's pulse test, such as biokinesthology, commonly known as muscle testing. But Coca's method has the advantage that it can be self-applied by anyone possessing determination and reasonable intelligence. To the best of my knowledge, this was the first book in its genre. To paraphrase one of the hygienists, you can clean and clean, but if you then pour in garbage again, what use was all the cleansing? A quick summary of the essentials of Coca's pulse test and how to do it are also found in the Appendix of Isabelle Moser's How And When To Be Your Own Doctor. Downloads as a PDF of 400 kb.

A complete, sensitive and intelligent survey of fasting and of fasting literature. Arnold DeVries was an American researcher, writer and hygienist, who already in the 1950's changed from a fruitarian (Fountain of Youth, 1946) to a paleolithic understanding of what constitutes optimum human nutrition (Primitive Man and His Food, 1952, Elixir of Life, 1952).

The Definitive Cure of Chronic Constipation. Benedict

Fischer Publishing Corporation, 1987. Downloads as a PDF of about
1.5 mb. OUT OF PRINT.
This book provides a thorough review of AMA-style cancer treatments but if that is all the book was, it would not be in this library. It also contains a thorough discussion of the anti-cancer Budwig protocol. Dr. Johanna Budwig, seven times nominated for the Nobel Prize, succeeded at reversing the anerobic metabolism of cancer cells with linseed oil, discovering that this oil is the only essential fatty acid cancer patients can take without letting the tumor grow. Max Gerson learned of this through Budwig. One of the 20- five star Amazon reviews of this book says: "Having been recently diagnosed with colon cancer (removed by operation) and liver cancer (secondary) I needed to know some answers regarding future treatments. Having heard and seen the results of the 'orthodox' route I wanted none of that! This book informed me of all of the alternatives on offer and covered each protocol very thoroughly. I highly recommend this book to every cancer sufferer. You will not be disappointed. Incidentally I chose the Budwig route."

Triumph Over Disease by Fasting and Natural Diet.
New York: Arco Publishing Company, 1977.
A personal testamonial in the vein of a true-confession story, only this story is not of love and betrayal, but of a young man who, through receiving much conventional medical treatment for ulcerative colitis, had been so damaged by the medicos that he approached death. In the nick of time he discovered natural hygiene, fasted for over 40 days and began to recover health and enjoyment of life. Gruesome in its detailed description of the disease and shocking in its recounting of the brutal and constitution-destroying treatments he received, interesting in the detailed inner-experience of a long-time water faster.

Health and Survival in the 21st Century. 1997.
Here is THE book for someone with incurable disease that is stuck in the medical model. Horne says--eloquently and passionately--everything I believe to be true, and says it better than I ever have or could. Includes a cogent presentation of why AIDS is a "false" disease, the frauds behind AZT and the deaths AZT caused. . . . There is very little within Health and Survival that I find to disagree with.

Ross. Improving On Pritikin: You Can Do Better. 1988.

This one is Ross' most personal book; it tells his own story. This one also gets the deepest in to Gerson's method, and discusses all the major dietary systems. So it is most interesting! Whilst preparing this book I had a realisation about why Ross Horne is such a powerful writer: he was a flight instructor. Flight instructors are people who take enormous pride in doing some thing absolutely perfectly, and also being able to explain how-to to another. Downloads as a PDF of 670 kb.

If you are suffering from life-threatening disease, this book may save your life.

M.D. Iridiagnosis and other Diagnostic Methods. Third
Edition. Chicago: Lindlahr Publishing Co., 1919.
Iridology means analysis of the body's condition through appearanace of the iris. The book also contains numerous interesting case histories and describes how conventional medical treatment of that era induced quality-of-life-threatening and fatal conditions. This book downloads in two ways: as html files and also as a rather large zip file containing the entire book. There are many figures and even a colour plate showing irises.
WARNING: Lindlahr expresses racial viewpoints in this book that today are considered highly politically incorrect. A paperback edition printed several decades ago abridged this material and "sanitized" Iridagnosis. The abridgment also left out data on the nature of drug therapy of that era. This library offers the whole story. PUBLIC DOMAIN
Lindlahr, Henry. Nature
Cure: Philosophy & Practice Based on the Unity
of Disease and Cure. 1913. Chicago: Nature Cure Publishing
Lindlahr was the founder of American Naturopathy, or perhaps more accurately stated, the bringer of the German Nature Cure to the States. In this remarkable century-old book will be found every new-agey, new-thought, self-help therapy currently in the public mind as well as the best of natural medical wisdom. My apologies in advance for the almost certain presence of many minor errors concerning uniformity of style. Lindlahr's copy editing was rather unprofessional and not consistent; although soilandhealth library tried to improve on the job, we have certainly missed many commas and improper capitalizations and the like.
A contemporary American Naturopathic Christian doctor has made available online a pdf version of this book, downloadable from his website, OneFlesh.org/. The .pdf version has been carefully and deeply edited; some relatively minor parts of the original version are missing (the good doctor considered these excised bits to be irrelevant or too controversial or incorrect in light of today's knowledge); the .pdf version also contains two new chapters intended to "update" or "broaden" Lindlahr, and the .pdf also offers numerous helpfully-intended comments, mostly in the form of footnotes, that a novice to the study of this area may find quite useful, as they frequently explain Lindlahr's archaic language or modify, justify or rationalize his viewpoints (and what the editor considered his errors) in the light of more modern knowledge. It is a large download, about 1.3 mb. The Soil and Health Library version is, on the other hand, as accurate a rendering of the original as could be done. PUBLIC DOMAIN
Henry. The Practice of Natural Therapeutics, fifth

The practical how-to of Lindlahr's methods explained in detail. The scan of this book was generously donated by Grant Campbell, a South African currently studying Naturopathy in England who hopes to settle in Australia or New Zealand. Grant is unexperienced in this sort of work and his scan required much effort to correct (fortunately, I had a copy of the book at the bottom of my "to-be-done" stack.) It took so much effort, in fact, that I ran out of willingness to do more than correct the formatting errors and fill in several missing bits. Thus, I must assign all minor errors in copy to Grant, and ask my patrons to be especially willing to inform me of these errors, so that they may be fixed. Grant also took strong exception to Lindlahr's recommendation to drink cow's milk. His statement about that can be read here. PUBLIC DOMAIN

Ph.D. Universal Immunization. Published by the
Health Action Network Society, Burnaby, B.C., Canada.
Readable by the layperson; fully-documented. The practice of childhood immunization is exposed as a dangerous fraud. Obomsawin points to nutrition and soil fertility as the real solutions to infective illness. The book contains one of the best summaries of the enormous values of some basic vitamins--A and C--in building resistance to disease, and shows how those who develop infectious disease are generally deficient. This book was based upon research that Obomsawin undertook in the early 1990s while serving as an Evaluation Analyst for the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) conducting a field evaluation of a UNICEF Integrated Services Project serving over 900 villages in northeast Thailand over a several year period. CIDA then hired a bio-medical professional to refute what Obomssawin had written. Obomsawin holds a PhD in Health Sciences and Human Ecology (1992).

Not so much a manual of how-to fast (although there are some useful insights on this in the book). Purinton's effort is more about the affiliated aspects of fasting--the mental and spiritual benefits of the practice, and the state of mind one needs to cultivate in order to fast safely and with a good result. Purinton was a uniquely individualistic being who belonged to no identifiable group or movement. Clearly, however, he was friendly to Theosophy, Vedanta and had reality on his own past lives.

P. Diet Prevents Polio. 1951.Lee Foundation for Nutritional
Here is proof that polio can be prevented by simple dietary improvement. Vaccination is not needed. Although I have major disagreements with Sandler's dietary solution as the ideal, ongoing, lifetime human diet, this simple set of improvements was, in its time, far better than the average diet, and proved enough to prevent the disease. The Lee Foundation was the product of the admirable Dr. Royal Lee, a brave pioneer in American health research. Dr. Lee served time in jail for his beliefs that most disease conditions could be remedied by better nutrition. Thanks to John at Whale Books for providing this scan.

M. The Hygienic Care of Children. San Antonio,
Texas: Dr, Shelton's Health School, 1931.
Not reprinted by the American Natural Hygiene Society! Shelton at his most aggressive, a vigorous defence of innocent children. The book was very badly printed and lacked the copy-editor's polishing given Shelton's other manuscripts. Thus it contained many, many errors, mispellings and even mis-used words. Many of these have been corrected. Many others were missed. Don't miss the very last chapter wherein Shelton ruthlessly attacks the alleopathic medicos for their greed and willful killing of the young; don't miss his detailed condemnation of vaccination.

The question of what constitutes a proper and healthy diet has long been the matter of the greatest controversy among holistic healers. It is still a matter of great confusion among the public.

M. The Hygienic System, Vol. III, Fasting and Sun Bathing.
San Antonio, Texas: Dr. Shelton's Health School, Third Revised
Edition, 1950. First Published 1934.
In his exhaustive study of therepeutic fasting, Shelton claimed: " In more than thirty years of conducting fasts, I have conducted over twenty-five thousand fasts, ranging in duration from three days to more than two months. I have conducted about six fasts that have gone sixty or more days, the longest being sixty-eight days. I have had literally hundreds of fasts that have lasted from forty to fifty and more days." Despite Shelton's possible overstatement of "twenty-five thousand," likely no one else has ever equalled his experience with fasting for the purpose of healing disease. PUBLIC DOMAIN.

Shelton at his scathing best!, explaining that there is not now and never has been a disease called "syphilis" but that by diagnosing many minor and usually transient symptoms as "syphilis" the medical profesion has obtained a herd of terrified sheeple who take pay large fees to take their poisonous remedies.

C. The Question of V.D. Originally appeared as article(s)
in The Kingdom Chronicle, a U.K. health magazine. Published
This small booklet contains world-view-changing viewpoints. The treatment of syphilis had long been a most lucrative money maker for the medical profession. But there may have been no such disease. In fact, the destructive symptoms of so-called tertiary syphilis are, Thompson explains, merely the poisoning of medical drugging.

C. Toward High Level Health. Edinburgh: Kingston Clinic,
The title would lead one to believe the booklet is encouragement toward the individual using the practice of Nature Cure. Not at all. This is a most powerfulyet relatively briefpolemic against the medical model. Thomson shows in excruciating detail how the drugging system, in combination with schools, the press, the national "health" system, etc., virtually brainwashes the public so that they automatically discount any approach but the official medical model. Thomson also demonstrates with his own case histories how medical doctors are adept at denial of his successes by claiming mis-diagnoses: Thomson's patient recovered from cancer because he "never had it in the first place." But these were patients who had been diagnosed by numerous "specialists" and then, desperately ill, sent home to die as untreatable. Probably only Thomson's fierce Scottish sense of independence and personal freedom allowed him to both practice Nature Cure and to keep out of prison. Thanks to Dr. John Fielder, who practices near Cairns, Queensland, for providing the lend of this booklet so a portion of it could be put in this library. Athough the book is virtually impossible to purchase through the usual channels of retail trade, still, it is in print, so we can offer only a one chapter excerpt, Chapter 7.

This polemic was printed and reprinted by Tilden, its prose re-polished half a dozen times from 1926-1935 as Tilden struggled to explain his thesis ever-more-clearly. Then, in the early 1950s, followers of Herbert Shelton, who had a rigid ideological structure concerning capital "N" Natural capital "H" Hygiene. Shelton's true-believing followers were heirs to a system using highly-politicalized nomenclature laying great weight on dicotomies like "cure" verses "heal." They had a go at Tilden's text and "improved it". The Sheltonites, strict, rigid vegetarians, also had serious problems with Tilden's acceptance of eating meat under certain conditions. Their 1950s edition also "improved" Toxemia Explained in this respect. Toxemia Explained is in print today but the paperback version available is derivitive from the 1950's Sheltonite alterations. The one here in the Soil and Health Library is an accurate rendering of Tilden's last revision, complete and unaltered. Public domain. Perhaps the finest explanation ever writen explaining why a body gets sick and what to do about it. Currently in print by Kessinger Publishing Co. PUBLIC DOMAIN.

J. R. Verner,
C. W. Weiant, R. J. Watkins. Rational Bacteriology.
Self Published by the authors, 1953.
This book is like a double barreled elephant gun. On one hand it prepares chiropractic students to pass their state medical licensing board examinations. To pass this gauntlet of orthodoxy the student must walk a tightrope, parroting the official line and viewpoints about bacterial diseases. So reading the first part of this book fully explains the official medical model. On the other hand the book simultaneously offers an alternative view of bacteria and the diseases they are reputed to cause, a viewpoint that does not support vaccination or most other forms of attacking bacteria whilst seeking to cure a disease that the bacteria did not cause. Perhaps more than any other book in our collection, Rational Bacteriology expounds the best alternative to the conventional theory of infectious diseasea viewpoint that which was begun by Béchamp and refined later by Tisot and others. While some minor assertions in the book are out of date (as science learned a few things in microbiology since 1953), the theoretical framework is as sound as it was when Bechamp was alive.Thanks are owed to Gary Krasner, founder and director of Coalition For Informed Choice in New York City, for supplying the scans of this book.

S. The Hazards of Immunization. London: The Athlone
Wilson's book won't interest the general reader. In fact, the general reader will find its full-blown medical terminology so entirely daunting that it is a virtual certainty they'll give up on it after going unconscious attempting to follow the first chapter. The information in this book, however, supplies infinite ammunition to anti-immunization activists and its presence in this library is primarily to serve this cause. Thanks are owed to Gary Krasner, founder and director of Coalition For Informed Choice in New York City, for urging this books inclusion. Wilson, a medical doctor himself, who believes in the efficacy of vaccination, provides a full historical survey of all immunization disasters, details the often catastrophic side effects. Downloads as a PDF of 1.68 mb.The idea of doing an OCR on the multi-lingual reference section was so daunting that no attempt was made; instead the references are offered as a separate download in the form of slightly fuzzy bitmap images on the order of a poor-quality photocopy. It is assumed that very few readers will be interested in following up on these citations. To download the references, click here and receive a 1.09 mb PDF. OUT OF PRINT.
The Hygienic Dictionary
Understanding nomenclature, the names of the parts, is essential to a solid understanding of any area of study. If the technical words used in a field are properly understood, the subject itself is usually easy to grasp. For this reason the Hygienic Dictionary was created.
Click here to see The Hygienic Dictionary. This is a work in progress. You are invited to contribute new words and new citations by hygienic writers (and others) defining them. Public domain.
