The basic principle which modern medicine is based in twofold: poisoning and cutting. While in training every physician and nurse is taught that every drug is poisonous. Two primary types of poisons are used: chemical poisoning and radiation poisoning. The other method is cutting. If something is wrong with an organ, cut it out instead of letting it heal.
In great contrast are the natural healing principles which work with the body's own efforts to restore health. Here we find rest, generally brief liquid fasts, light meals, enemas, water applications, fresh air, sunshine, avoidance of harmful substances, and trust in divine power.

Here is a clarifying passage which is outstanding in its simplicity and breath of understanding:

1. The solution is to teach the people: the only hope of better things is in the education of the people in right principles. Let the physicians teach the people that restorative power is not in drugs, but in nature.

2. The true nature of "disease". It is a cleansing process: Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from violation of the law of health.

3. What we should do when a person is sick: In case of sickness the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected.

4. Here are the eight natural remedies: Pure air, sunlight, abstemiousness, rest, exercise, proper diet, the use of water, trust in divine power - These are the true remedies.

5. Everyone should be taught how to use these remedies: It is essential both to understand the principles involved in the treatment of the sick and to have a practical training that will enable one rightly to use this knowledge.

6. The use of natural remedies requires thought and work,but is well-worth it: 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 the impatient it seems slow...But the end it will be found that nature, untrammeled, does her work wisely and well.

7. Prevention is better than treatment: Too little attention is generally given to the preservation of health. It is far better to prevent disease than to know how to treat it when contracted.

8. There are important laws of life which govern every part of our bodies, and our behavior: It is the duty of every person, for his own sake and for the sake of humanity. To inform himself in regard to the laws of life, and conscientiously to obey them.

9. Health is not the result of chance,but of obedience to law: We cannot be too often reminded that health does not depend on chance. It is a result of obedience to law.

10. Athletes understand this principle better than many others: This is recognized by the contestant in athletic games and trials of strength. These men make the most careful preparation. They submit to thorough training and strict discipline. Every physical habit is carefully regulated. They know that neglect excess, or carelessness, which weakens or cripples any organs or function of the body, would ensure defeat.

11. When we weaken our health, we weaken our mental and moral powers: Whatever injures the health, not only lessens physical vigor, but tends to weaken the mental and moral powers. Indulgence in any unhealthful practice makes it more difficult for one to discriminate between right and wrong, and hence more difficult to resist evil. It increases the danger of failure and defeat.

12. Everyone can be a winner, if he will determine to control himself and practice right principles: In the warfare in which we are engaged, all may win who will discipline themselves by obedience to right principles. The practice of these principles in the details of life is too often looked upon as unimportant - a matter too trivial to demand attention. Every act casts its weight into the scale that determines life's victory or defeat.

13. We must urge upon men and women the vital importance of self-mastery in controlling the appetites and passions, and keeping the body in good health: Men and women must be awakened to the duty of self-mastery, the need of purity, freedom from every depraving appetite and defiling habit.

14. The mind must control the body, or the mind will lose control of itself: The body is the only medium through which the mind and the soul developed for the upbuilding of character.

15. If we would have success, we must obey the law of God: The foundation of all enduring reform is the law of God. We are to present in clear, distinct lines the need of obeying this law. I'ts principle must be kept before the people.
