SOME PRACTICAL DO'S AND DONTS IN NATURAL HYGIENE
Can Natural Hygiene give some practical guidelines to maintain and preserve good health? What are the guidelines in cases of illness?

HOW TO RECOGNISE HEALTH IN YOU
Many people are able to recognise the signs of ill health within them. We have been conditioned to look for signs of ill health rather than health.

HOW SOON CAN YOU GET WELL?
People are so used to seeing their symptoms vanish with the prick of a needle, that they also expect instantaneous relief when they embark on a Hygienic way of life. They forget that the speedy relief they had was only temporary.

LIVING BEYOND YOUR MEANS
Husbanding one's resources is a sure sign of good investment. But how many of us fail to realise that what is true of economical strength is also true of bodily and mental wellbeing.

WHAT IS THIS TOXAEMIA?
Toxaemia and toxins are words commonly used in the Natural Hygiene field but many people are still in ignorance of what they are and what they imply.

SOME PRACTICAL HINTS FOR A DETOXIFYING REGIME
Not many people have the time to undertake a fast. For those who want to detoxify themselves the following practical suggestions will go a long way in helping them to detoxify.

VEGETARIANISM IS NOT ENOUGH - FOR GOOD HEALTH
Many people make the mistake of choosing a fragment and building a total way of life around it. Vegetarianism is one of them.

OVERCOMING DEPRESSION WITHOUT DRUGS
The Hygienic practitioner's first duty is to make the person with depression realise that it is within his or her own power to get well, without resort to drugs

DO "HEALTH FOODS" GIVE YOU HEALTH?
Many people have no idea that the modern day "Health Food Store" has very little in common with the one opened 50 years ago.

FOOD & LIFE
What is the natural diet of man? - How much, when, how to eat? - Speaking of food as "medicine" is to transfer to food all the misconceptions about drugs.

EDUCATE - NOT MEDICATE
In the past Dr Shelton was chastised by Hygienists for his strong language in criticising the medical profession - modern day Hygienists are still sitting on the fence.

WHAT PRICE - "THE REMEDY MENTALITY"
Ill health is so prevalent that doctors are beset with a mass of people who are seeking relief from their aches and pains and their disabilities.

NATURAL HYGIENE IDEAS ARE BEING STOLEN!
Many Natural Hygiene adherents would probably be greatly surprised to learn that there is undoubted evidence that Natural Hygiene ideas are gradually being purloined ...
  Poem
Here is one of Keki Sidhwa's poems from Words and Music and All Alone:

The Fast Complete

I have cleansed the tissues of my body today from head to toe;
I have sent the toxins flying, with courage, determination and pluck;
I have opened wide the windows to fresh air, rest and sunshine.
My bloodstream is now free from any muck.
I have cast away all dead and worn out cells that were no longer needed
And replenished them with young ones in a neat and tidy array
And now my fast is over, the day is almost ended.
My body is light as a feather - and I hope it stays that way!
I have cleansed my mind and spirit from anxiety, worry, despair;
I have cast out fear, self-pity and thrown away sorrow;
I have routed out the sins of omission and commission from the hidden recesses of my being,
And emotional poise, instead of poisons, brings hope and joy for a new tomorrow.
I have opened wide the doorway to Faith, Love and Charity,
And welcomed them there to enter and never go away.
Now my fast is ended, the work is almost over.
My senses are more acute, my spirit brighter,
And health and truth will forever hold sway.

"There are at least two kinds of pleasure. One is the sensational, rooted in greed, leading to frenzied excitement and finally to exhaustion... - The other is the birthright of the human ... Where the mind is pure, the psyche free from ambivalence and conflict, and the body cleansed, all the senses function at their highest intensity and refinement." (The Quintessence.., ch.1)
