The Science and Fine Art Of Living In Harmony With Nature
by T. C. Fry and David Klein
Hygiene literally defined is the science of health. Natural Hygiene is a health science system which rightfully concerns itself with every aspect, truth and principle of life which concerns optimal human well-being. Understanding and applying the forces of everything that is good and wonderful in life so that we can live blissfully and gloriously is Natural Hygiene. We can say that living hygienically is the science and fine art of healthful living.
When we turn our studies upon ourselves so that we may have a very personal science, we begin to arrive at the essence of Natural Hygiene. Obeying our natural instincts is part and parcel of Natural Hygiene. We are of the firm conviction that only by living hygienically can we realize the loftiest joys and destiny which is our birthright. Two centuries of unfailing results have proven Natural Hygiene to be the true science of health and the greatest health science system humanity has ever known.
The Natural Hygiene Credo of Life
-Natural Hygiene holds that life should be meaningful and filled with beauty, love, kindness, goodness and happiness. Natural Hygiene holds that we are naturally good, righteous, loving, sharing and virtuous, and that our exalted character will manifest under ideal life conditions.
-Natural Hygiene holds that superlative well-being is normal to our existence and is necessary to the achievement of our highest potential.
-Natural Hygiene holds that supreme human excellence can be realized only in those who embrace those precepts and practices which are productive of superb well-being.
-Natural Hygiene holds that only under the recognition of and the observance in practice of our biological requisites will our lofty potential be fulfilled.
-Natural Hygiene, which encompasses all that bears upon human well-being, and which bases itself soundly upon the human biological heritage, constitutes the way to realize the highest possible order of human existence.
-Natural Hygiene is in harmony with nature, in accord with the principles of vital organic existence, correct in science, sound in philosophy and ethics, in agreement with common sense, successful in practice and a blessing to human-kind.
-Natural Hygiene recognizes that the human body is obviously self-constructing, having developed from a fertilized ovum, that it is self-preserving, that it is self-defending and, through the mighty power and intelligence that constructed it, totally self-cleansing and self-repairing.
-Natural Hygiene recognizes that the body maintains itself in perfect health, completely free of disease, if its needs are correctly met. Foremost among these needs are fresh air, pure water, rest and sleep, cleanliness, foods consonant with our biological adaptations, love and appreciation, comfortable temperature, sunshine, vigorous activity, constructive work, emotional poise, self-mastery, recreation and pleasant environment.
-Natural Hygiene recognizes that humans are biologically frugivores and are constitutionally, anatomically and aesthetically adapted to a diet of primarily fruits and, secondarily, nuts, seeds and vegetables. Ideally, they must be eaten in the fresh, raw, natural state in combinations that are compatible in digestive chemistry.
-Natural Hygiene recognizes that diseases are caused by improper life practices, especially dietary indiscretions. Illness proceeds from reduced nerve energy and consequent toxicosis from internally generated wastes, from ingested substances bearing or begetting toxicity, or from a combination of both. Insufficient nerve energy arises from dissipation, stress, overindulgence, excess or deficiency of the normal essentials of life, or toxification of the body with substances not normal to it. Accordingly, recovery from sickness can be achieved only by discontinuing its causes and establishing conditions favorable to recovery.
-Natural Hygiene recognizes that a thoroughgoing rest, which includes
fasting, is the most favorable condition under which an ailing body can
purify and restore itself.
-Natural Hygiene, which teaches that exalted well-being can be attained and maintained only through biologically correct living practices, is not in any sense a healing art of a curing cult. It regards as mistaken and productive of much grief the idea that disease can be prevented or overcome by agencies abnormal to our natural being. Consequently, Natural Hygiene emphatically rejects drugs, medications, vaccinations and treatments because they undermine health by interfering with, disrupting or destroying vital body processes, functions, cells and tissues.
Therefore, Natural Hygiene regards body and mind as the inviolable sanctuary of an individual's being. Natural Hygiene holds that everyone has an unalienable right to have a pure and uncontaminated body, to be free of abnormal compulsions and restraints, and to be free to meet his or her needs as a responsible member of society.
