How Health Works

It is the opinion of those who best understand the physical system, that if the physical laws were strictly observed from generation to generation, there would be an end to the frightful diseases that cut life short, and of the long list of maladies that make life a torment or a trial, and that this wonderful machine, the body…this “goodly temple,” would gradually decay, and men would at last die as if gently falling asleep
