Correct Natural Hygiene

The human body’s ability to heal itself in a fast and furious way is nothing short of a miracle.

Proponents of Correct Natural Hygiene believe that optimal health can be the result of clean, natural living. This means living in balance with your physical, mental, emotional and environmental needs. It will provide the body with the “10 Energy Enhancers” and will allow the self-healing abilities of the body to work at an optimal level. Following the principles of Correct Natural Hygiene can allow the body to enter the conditions necessary to heal itself from almost any malady, including cancer, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and skin conditions.

       Correct Natural Hygiene can have a tremendous positive influence in your life. However, because the original Natural Hygiene was created by doctors that lived nearly 200 years ago, it’s no longer fully up-to-date with modern science and research. Correct Natural Hygiene is a work in progress that attempts to correct some of the outdated philosophies and principals.

       Correct Natural Hygiene costs very little to try and offers fairly dramatic and rapid results. Remember, however, it should not be taken lightly and not attempted unsupervised, especially pure water fasting. In fact, attempting to cure disease with fasting is not recommended for those with weakened health or lack of excess body fat.

       The guiding principles of Correct Natural Hygiene are as follows:

Cleanliness Cleanliness includes both the external and internal. External cleanliness includes keeping the body and hair washed, the nails clean and the teeth flossed and brushed. Internal cleanliness means keeping the bodily fluids and tissues clean and free of toxic build-up. Natural Hygiene is based on the systematic, physiological detoxification of the body.

Pure Air Air is considered a nutrient to the body in the Hygienic System. Each pair of human lungs is made up of 1 billion tiny cells called “alveoli.” We each inhale 130,000 cubic inches of air a day. The tiny air sac cells exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen continually. 125 barrels of blood a day flow through the lungs in this exchange. When the air we breathe is fresh and pure, it brings the possibility for more vital life to the body as it enhances nerve energy supply.

Pure Water Like air, water is considered a nutrient to the body.

Adequate Rest & Sleep In the Hygienic System, rest and sleep are important because it is during rest that nerve energy is regenerated and stored. It is through nerve energy that bodily detoxification and healing take place.

The Ideal Diet “The ideal diet” is formally defined as: “Fresh, wholesome, non-toxic fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds in their uncooked, whole, natural state and eaten in modest amounts and proper combination, while in a state of emotional balance.”

Adequate Sunshine & Natural Light Sunlight is also considered a nutrient. It is important to take short sunbaths regularly, preferably in the early morning and late afternoon, and bathing as much of the entire body as possible. Avoid artificial lighting as much as possible. Keep the delicate tissues of the face shaded by a sun visor.

Right Temperatures Avoid extremes in temperature, as they cause the body to react by wasting nerve energy while adapting to the extremes. Likewise, Hygienic doctors teach us to avoid very cold and very hot foods, as they waste energy and can damage the delicate mucosal membranes of the digestive tract.

Regular Exercise The Hygienic System recommends a 3-pronged exercise program: stretching, aerobics, and weight-training.

Nurturing Relationships

Emotional Balance This includes being free from addictions, having meaningful goals and leading a purposeful life.
