Removing enervating habits

by Christina on June 26, 2011

“Nature returns to normal when enervating habits are given up. There are no “cures” in the sense generally understood. If one has a tobacco heart, what is the remedy? Stop the tobacco of course… What will cure? Drugs? No! Removing the cause.

Every so called disease is built within the mind and body by enervating habits. A fast, rest in bed and the giving up of enervating habits, mental and physical, will allow nature to eliminate the accumulated toxin; then, if enervating habits are given up, and rational living habits adopted, health will come back to stay…

The medical world has been looking for a remedy to cure disease, notwithstanding the obvious fact that nature needs no remedy – she only needs an opportunity to exercise her own prerogative of self-healing.”

~John Tilden, M.D. (1851-1940).

Dr. John Tilden was way ahead of his time. Such wisdom.

I agree with Dr Tilden 100 percent. I have asthma for the past 6 years and have been on one medication after another and have made a decision to take back my life and do a 70 day juice fast. My goal is to lose 60 lbs and eat a vegan diet after that. I am 6’2 and 225lbs and tired oooof being sick ever day.

Hi George,

Great to hear from you, and best of luck with your juice fast and vegan diet! Would love to hear how it all goes…
