An excellent read for anyone interested in the origins of naturopathic medicine. There are many good points about overall wellness and the body's natural healing capacity. It should be noted though that some of the techniques are out of date (or even harmful such as using mercury based salves) as the book was written in 1913. This doesn't diminish the overall value of reading this book, but it is something to note for anyone who is looking for practical remedies from this text.
The overall narrative is a little disjointed. I was captivated by all the stories met along the way. Truly worthwhile and it contains a great many beautiful quotes.
