Harry Benjamin

Everybody's Guide to Nature Cure
Health for All Publishing London 
1937 third imp of 1st Ed hb black cloth damaged and outer spine missing repaired binding loose but clean inside 495pp 220mm x 140mm wt 800gms.Benjamin was a member of the British Association of Naturopaths. This book is said to be a "foundational naturopathic textbook..." A main thesis of the book is that, "Disease is nothing more or less than Nature's blind attempt at cure. It is the system's attempt to deal as effectively as it can under given conditions with factors which, through man's ignorance, folly, and self-indulgence, are causing impediment of function!" Benjamin "whole-heartedly recommended fasting for almost anything," according to Dr Andrew W. Saul at the web site. He continues, "Really hard-core nature-cure quacks (Saul uses the term affectionately and ironically), like Benjamin, uniformly hold to the doctrine that whatever is wrong with a body, systemic toxemia is the root cause and fasting is the real cure."
