Office of the President DR: BENEDICT LUST 343 Lexington Avenue New York, N. Y.

April 19, 1945

Dr. Arthur Schramm, President International Society of Naturopathic Physicians 2270 Colorado Boulevard, Los Angeles 41, California My dear Doctor Schramm:

You have shown great initiative and a genuine am- bition to bring our profession and the public toward a realization of the knowledge they should have for universal benefits of health and a rational health system, to cover all cases and conditions and which 1s at all times superior to the medical methods, which are mostly guesswork and are only applied and kept up as a business for the exploitation of the public, keeping down competition and domination by autocratic means. We must have financial backing be- hind us to do this work of liberating America once more and put back into the Constitution what the signers of that document had in mind for us.

My best wishes go forth to you, to your work, to your organization, and I hope that you will continue to labor for true Naturopathy.

Sincerely and Naturopathically, Dr. BENEDICT LusT President


Dr. Lust peaking

To the Believers in the Efficacy of Herbs the World Over:

More than fifty years ago, I landed upon these God-given shores of America. At that time I was filled with a great deter- mination—spurred on by a burning desire—to bring to the peoples of this New World the teachings of Father Sebastian Kneipp. That determination—that desire—has never left me. In fact, tne years that have passed have but increased my ardor and made the goal I have set for myself the more alluring.

Father Kneipp depended upon but three agencies for his treatments—first, the Almighty; second, herbs; and third, baths or water cure. |

Very often he used to call us together and say: “The average person is very hard to convince, The Nature Cure is much too simple for their imagination. So, when a new patient arrives I always start in by advising the taking of five juniper berries the first day. On the second day I raise the amount to six. On the third to seven—and so on, adding one berry each day until the total of thirty is reached. Then I reverse the order and take away one berry each day until the original five had been reached. The effect of these juniper berries on the ailing is so marvelous—so miraculous—that the patient then gladly consents to go through with the entire treatment of my water-cure without question.”

Thus did the Reverend Father Kneipp find in the simple herbs the suitable introduction to his wonderful treatments.

In the years that have elapsed since my arrival in America, I have found, from exverience, that in the correcting of abnormal conditions in the human body, herbs should have a most promi- nent place. Herbs are truly Nature’s medicines. When adminis- tered skillfully, they can bring lasting results and relieve pain almost as quickly as can the dangerous narcotics in the hands of a medical doctor.

As the Father of the Nature Cure in the United States—as head of the Naturopathic movement in the Western Hemisphere— as the direct representative of the beloved Father Sebastian Kneipp, I commend the study of Herbs to anyone who is seeking the true foundation of natural healing.

The purpose of this year book Is to preserve for posterity the record of the Naturopathic pioneers in California and the contemporary picture of the profession, It is sponsored by the Emerson University and the International Society of Naturopathic Physicians. It is the aim of this work to particularly honor Dr. Carl Schultz, the “Father of Naturopathy in California.” Dr. Benedict Lust, the Father of Naturopathy of all America has cooperated in every respect by letting us have access to certain items of information that would be difficult to obtain elsewhere.

We also want to honor especially Dr. Arthur Schramm who labored hard and long in building up not only Emerson University and its Re- search Council, but who strove also to gather all the monumental information that goes into even a small work like his. It is hoped that he may be able to continue in his leadership and guidance. He has proven a gold mine of information in our field and always has been ready to reply to our countless personal and professional letters. He is attempting to have at his fingertips all and every item of informaticn that might be needed by Naturopathic physicians. So far he has shown himself almost encyclopedic. From the humble beginning of an informal study group in Botanic Medicine, he has amassed a membership international in scope and interests. He has a larger body of members than any other naturopathic group of its kind. Its total has grown from the original seven: Dr, Arthur Schramm, Dr. John W. Schmitz, Dr. Peter N. Spelio, Dr. Harold E. Foster, Dr. Hugh R. Aitchison, Dr. W. J. M. Maxwell, Dr. Lyle D. Holland, to about eight hundred specifically listed members, practicing not only in the United States, but also in Canada, England, India, Australia, New Zealand, etc. The initial aim of this organization was mostly in the field of the study of phytotherapy, hence its name “The National Association of Naturopathic Herbalists of America’. Now its field is so widespread that it has transferred its membership into an international or- ganization so that now membership includes over two thousand.

Another ideal to strive for is the re-education of one another by means of such a guide book as this. Not that this book will have great teaching value, but it will merely point the way. It will be a guide. It will offer a few goals to aim for. Every professional man must learn that he MUST LEARN. He must be constantly striving to add to his storehouse of knowledge. He must be willing to exchange this knowledge in a scientific manner, and in such a way that anyone with a basic training would be able to duplicate the efforts of the original investigator. Either you are raising your profession and yourself or you are lowering both. You cannot stand still in this regard.

Still another goal is to try to point the way for all the branches of the healing arts to bury the hatchet in some place besides their professional brothers’ heads, The many divergent groups of the Allopathic and Naturo- pathic professions as well as other branches of the healing arts, should work united for their similar goals instead of bickering and nagging one another. Both sides want to serve the sick. Both want to prescribe medicine. Both see the necessity of surgery. They differ rather in degree of treatment than in kind. Drug houses would not go out of business tomorrow if the Naturo- paths were the only ones permitted to heal the sick. Indeed many new substances with greater earning power for both the doctors and the drug houses would result. It is not that socalled drugless practitioners want less drugs. They want less of some kinds, like narcotics and poisons, and more, much more, of others, such as vitamins and botanical and glandular remedies.

So, in conclusion, we want to teach you to know your Naturopathy, to know your Naturopaths, to have a professional attitude and culture compar- able to the great worth of the profession itself, and to have a Naturopathic philosophy of life in black and white so that you can refer to it as a guide every day. And, like another great contributor toward our enriched history, Dr. Frederick W. Collins, would sign himself,

Vigorously yours for health, Peter J. Schneemann, N.D., Ph.D., Sec. International Society of Naturopathic Physicians.

DR. CARROLL J. MATHER .. . speaking


Now, when I am looking back at the first seven years of our association’s activities, | can not help but saying that it has been a wonderful period for our ind.vidual members as well as for our association,

It has been my great pleasure to have joined the National Ass'n of Naturopathic Herbalists of America when it was in but swaddling clothes and to have witnessed the remarkable growth attained by this body of august gentlemen. Membership attainments have been kept within the rank of professional standards and we are proud of the caliber of our fellow menibers.

Back of this great achievement in growth from the small beginning of seven years ago as the NANHA due credit and praise must be given Dr. Arthur Schramm, whose untiring efforts in behalf of botanic medicine in part, and naturopathy on the whole, enrolled eight hundred members in the seven years he has served as our president of the NANHA. More than 19,000 pieces of mail were answered by him in that period. With such a grand record the doctor now relinquishes the presidency and will hereafter, due to his wide knowledge of and acquaintanceship in Naturopathic associations, here and abroad, be the president of our reorganized “International Society of Naturopathic Physicians’. The ever gracious Dr. Ellen Schramm, wife and helpmate of Dr. Arthur Schramm, likewise is fully entitled to the thanks of our society for her devotion to our organization's welfare in conjunction with her manifold duties as a physician as well as housewife. May our society be blessed with more willing workers like the Drs. Schramm,

So today, fellow members, we have and are proud of our new cog- nomen the “International Society of Naturopathic Physicians” an outgrowth of our ever growing NANHA, This name was instituted in due respect to the wishes of our naturopathic physicians to accomodate their various in- terests and activities. Under our broadened title will be sectional groups or bureaus to emphasize the interests of our members in their specialties, as electrotherapy, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, botanotherapy, etc., each bu- reau or subdivision being an allied society. The NANHA will retain its name as sectional group of the IS NP. Through this arrangement there can be better disseminated the interests of our Naturopathic Physicians who are in- terested in special fields of therapeutics. Too, each Naturopathic physician's interest can be represented in a more dignified, scientific, and thoroughly ethical manner,

We are blessed with the splendid growth our Emerson University Re- search Council puts forth and the creditable work its members are doing. Likewise our affiliation with the Academy of Naturopathic Science and Re- search affords a testing laboratory for naturopthic devices and: products. We are proud of these affiliations and the caliber of their men.

It is the sincere hope of this writer that the International Society of Na- turopathic Physicians will hasten complete unity, promote progress in thera- poutics, and that the achievement of our endeavor will be a meritorious ad- dition to the glory of modern Naturopathy.

Naturopathically yours, Carroll J. Mather ND. D.BeM.,. -PhiG., LL:D,

Dr. Wm. H. Allen Dr. V. J. Sinclair Dr. Joseph Smolski President Secretary Vice-President ACADEMY OF NATUROPATHIC SCIENCE AND RESEARCH 81814 South Main Street Columbia, Tennessee February 7, 1945

Since its incorporation in 1939 the Academy of Naturopathic Science and Research has devoted its time mostly to research and educational

projects. Its membership was then limited to one hundred. Not until the summer of 1944 was it decided to expand. September | of that year a membership drive was launched and three months later more than 1000 new members were enrolled. This rapid growth still continues. The Academy

is now the largest Naturopathic organization in the United States. All its various departments are expanding correspondingly. The official organ, THE NATUROPATHIC REVIEW, issued at regular intervals furnishes com- plete details.

The International Society of Naturopathic Physicians and the Academy of Naturopathic Science and Research planned a joint year book. Due to the rapid growth as well as lack of office facilities the Academy has been unabte to get their material ready for this issue. Moreover, we are greatly behind in our correspondence and have been unable to send some three hundred new members their membersh:p cards. With increased personnel in our various departments th’s bottle neck will rapidly be overcome.

The International Society of Naturopathic Physicians has set the complete cooperation and unity of ail Naturopathic organizations throughout the World as its goal. While the Academy works for the consolidation of all naturop- athic interests in the United States, in particular, some of the world leaders in Naturopathy, founders and officers of various other Naturopathic associa- tions, are members and officers of the Academy and are doing their part to bring about a complete unity among the Naturopaths.

Many ind:viduals of the profession even among the Academy and International members believe the time is ripe to have this large membership go into the poiitical arena of the various states in support of legislation. While we favor suitable and adequate legislation, we do not consider it expedient to actively take up the cudgels and initiate. legislative programs. Our greatest contribution will be to support educational research first. We cannot hold our profession up in the bright light of day unless we are edu- cated and educators. We are desperately in need of schools, schools sup- ported by sufficient hospital facilities for internships and clinical experience. Our constant aim must be to get legislation not only to permit us to enter hospitals as physicians, but to support such ventures if possible by public money, But education and hospitalization facilities come first on our program.

Only in knowing do we learn to evaluate one another. Therefore for cooperation and unity we must have an educational program. Learn, treat, teach, Make Naturopathy reach, Only by UNITY can we forge ahead with impunity.

Dr. W. H. Allen, President



While Priessnitz, Kneipp, Just, Bilz, Kuhne, Hahne, Ehret, Ling, Brandt, Orbell, Ricker, Hensel and Lehmann preferred to oppose the dictators of orthodoxy in Europe, Lust, Collins, Riley, Lindlahr, Schreiber, Zimmerman, Janeway, Leslie, Hotchkiss, Schramm, Allen, to mention a few of these many worthy protagonists of Naturopathy, carried the battle to the New World, where medical orthodoxy was but too well entrenched. Naturopathy has met with signal success in every state of the Union. California rightfully calls Dr. Carl Schultz “The Father of Naturopathy in California’, Born in Greifs- wald, Germany, December 27th, 1849, Dr. Schultz excelled most of his fellow students at the University in chemistry and homeopathy. Later .his interest centered in the methods of Bilz and Kneipp. To fully satisfy his desire he studied hydrotherapy, massage, electrical modalities, chromotherapy, ortho- pedic surgery as well as all branches then known as Nature Cure and Naturopathy. He opened his field in Texas and South Carolina, Following Horace Greeley's motto he went West. He came here, a pioneer in the new art of healing. And so we find him in Los Angeles, Here his “Naturopathic Institute and Sanitarium of California’’ met with immediate success. It inspired others to such an extent that the majority of drugless practitioners of the coastal states became his graduates. He was one of the first Naturo- paths to recognize the teachings of Chiropractors and Osteopaths and _ to incorporate their methods with his own. About this time the orthodoxy took up arms against him and the profession which he was so ably nurturing. To him practically alone belongs the credit of putting the foe on the defensive. He studied law at night and passed the Bar after three years. He was first of all a Physician. He entered the courtroom only in defense of the unfor- tunate, especially those prosecuted and persecuted as was his own profession. So well did he perform his legal! duties that by 1903 he was acting as council before the United States Supreme Court. He countered every orthodox tactic and gained ground in his court battles to such an extent that he was able to have passed a bill licensing Naturopaths in California on March 19, 1909. The regular medical board usurped control of the new naturopathic board and refused to issue any more licenses six months after passage of the bill.

In 1901, Dr. Schultz organized the Association of Naturopathic Physicians of California, whose secretary he was for six years, Yet with all these activities he was able to keep his office practice and to attend to approxi- mately sixty patients a day. Later he became president and held this post for eight years, refusing renomination. His organization mutinied, however, and re-elected him secretary. Dr. Schulta obtained a charter for the "Cali- fornia University of Liberal Physicians’ in 1914, He organized this school and as owner and president ran it conjointly with his Naturopathic Institute of California. A research group was organized under the sponsorship of Dr. Schultz and the University. It functioned spasmodically until Dr. Schramm revived it to full vigor in 1932 with the aid of Dr. Curtis Hollinger, Meanwhile the University flourished in increasing repute and Dr. Schultz’ private practice added so much to his burdened time that by 1928 he turned over both the university and his practice to Dr. Olson. For various unforseen circumstances Dr. Olson had to withdraw after about two years and 1931 found Dr. Schultz back in practice and head of his school. Although greatly aided by Dr. Schramm, he at last decided to sell to Dr. Hollinger in 1934 and Dr. Schramm continued with the school, when Dr. Hollinger bought the charter. On May 5th, 1935 Dr. Schultz passed away.

Funeral services were held at the place of interment, Inglewood Cemetery. Dr. Arthur Schramm, Master of the Masonic Lodge “Acacia” of which Dr. Schultz was a member, conducted the service according to Masonic Ritual. He summed up the great service Dr. Schultz had rendered to humanity and remarked that the niche he held could not be fittingly filled in many a year to come.


Dr. M. T. Campanella Dr. Carl Eric Hotchkiss


The profession of Naturopathy is indebted to Dr. Mario T. Campanella for his latest contribution to the literature in that field, the “Naturopathic Review” official organ of the American Academy of Naturopathic. Here the aim is embodied and the clarion call is sounded for all naturopathic doctors to unite, for all minor groups to get together and form a solid front for the mutual benefit of the profession in every state of the Union, It is hoped that this little bud in Naturopathy will blossom forth into something more than all the other efforts have done. Real scientific literature is nec- essary in our branch of the healing arts. So far it does not exist. Every writer tells what he has done for a patient suffering from a speaific ailment then fails to outline the specific steps necessary in treating the condition. Until we can learn to write so that others can duplicate every step of our procedure as to diagnosis, prescription of means of treatment, action sought, contra indications for such treatment, length of treatment, etc., we are utter failures as a scientific profession and just quacks.

Dr. Campanella, with his rich background of European medical ortho- dox training at the Royal University of Turin, appreciates the scientific value of proper procedure in writing and discussion and will bend every effort in this way to accomplish these broad aims.

Dr. Campanella is very active. He is a Fellow of the Calcutta Homeo- pathic Medical Board, the Royal Homeopathic Society, the Hahnemann Association, the Research Council of Emerson University, and numerous others. He also holds degrees in Medicine, Surgery, Naturopathy, Osteo- pathy, Chiropractic, Physical Medicine, Philosophy, etc. It is hoped his efforts in publishing and the reorganization of his small Lucem College into a larger university will result in success, :


Dr, Carl Eric Hotchkiss is a worthy successor to the line of fathers of Naturopathy in Cclifornia. Like Dr. Carl Schullz, he is striving to place an equitable law on the books for California. In the last legislature he suc- ceeded in getting passed a Naturopathic bill in the state Senate by a large majority; it, however, failed in the Assembly.

Dr. Hotchkiss is a graduate of the California College of Natural Healing Arts, the Los Angeles College of Chiropathic and Naturopathy, the Ameri- can University, the College of Naturopathic Physicians and Surgeons. He is licensed in Utah and California. Formerly he was editor of “The Naturo- pathic Physician’. He has been a very active member for and in the Naturopathic Physicians Association of California. He has been president for the past decade. He has served in the army medical corps in World War | and has been in active practice since that time.

Among the organizations to which he belongs are: The U. S. Naturo- pathic Association, the American Naturopathic Association, the National Association of Naturopathic Herbalists of America, the United Practitioners Association of Australia, the Utah State Society of Naturopathic Physicians and Surgeons, the International Society of Naturopathic Physicians.



We are fortunate to have as advisor Dr. Peter J. Schneemann, whose background in education is a worthwhile adjunct to our research work. His aid as former editor and publisher of school and college newspapers, has proven almost indispensable as we are about to go to press, He has gratui- tously offered his time for this laborious task,

Dr. Schneemann is little known in the West. He majored in New Jersey in English and philosophy and minored in classics for his A. B, at Seton Hall College, South Orange, After studying theology and majoring also in education and guidance and personnel work, he received his M. A. at the same institution. He attended courses at both Rutgers and Columbia Universities and rece.ved his Ph. D. from the Lucem College of Sciences in education and administration. He taught high school at St. Benedict's Preparatory School, Newark, N. J. for four years and later received his A, 5S. degree in physical therapy from the Junior College of Physical Therapy, New Haven, Conn., where he taught and assisted in clinic during the school year. Dr. Schneemann also completed his work in physical therapy, chiro- practic, and naturopathy with Dr. Fred’k W. Collins, famous New Jersey drugless physician. Moreover, he studied at the Nashville College of Na- turopathic Medicine as well as at the Tennessee College of Medicine and Surgery. He passed the Connecticut State Board of Physical Therapy Ex- aminers, the Tennessee Board of Naturopathic Examiners and the Nevada State Board of Chiropractic Examiners.

Since coming to California, Dr, Schneeman has been doing research work with us. He is also teaching post graduate courses at the College ol Drugless Healing. His work has quickly been recognized and at the 1945 election of officers for the International Society of Naturopathic Physicians. he was elected secretary. He is now engaged in this capacity with us and has promised us every aid in research and teaching in Emerson University and its Research Council, os well as in the National Ass‘n of Naturopathic Herbalists of America,

Dr. Schneemann has written articles on philosophy and on _ physical therapy. A few of his verses, serious and humerous, appeared in various journals and newspapers. His pr.vate library contains more than a _ thous- and volumes on general subjects, as well as medical books. His travels in Furope, Canada, Mexico, the Carribean, and most of the states of this country have enabled him to write quite a few interesting anecdotes.

I have met but very few persons who have willingly devoted their spare time to educational and research work as has Dr. Schneemann, I! fully appreciate his efforts and w:sh to express the gratitude in the name of the officers of Emerson University Research Council and myself.

Dr. Arthur Schramm



Dr. Benedict Lust “Father of Naturopathy in the United States”

Every person interested in natural living should know Dr. Benedict Lust. His reticence will not permit him to give much information concerning himself. In “Who's Who in America’ he is classified as a Physician and an Editor And here is what we gathered from bits of information from many of his friends who know him intimately:

February 3, 1872 marks the date of this protagonist of Naturopathy. Dr. Lust's father was Johannes Lust, Louisa Rieger his mother. He was born at Michelbach near Gaggenau, Baden, Germany,

It is of great interest to know that Dr. Lust followed the course of many great Nauropaths, namely finding his way to health after much pain and suffering, by means of natural processes and treatment. It was the great Father Sebastian Kneipp who restored him soundness of mind and body. He was commissioned by the priest to bring the Kneipp Cure to America. Dr. Lusi was not limited or narrow in his outlook; he studied all natural methods and visited many health institutions. He correlated all ideas and cures to form Naturopathy, to which he contributed his own ideas as well, He was not sat’sfied to limit the scope of his activity to private practice. He extended his discoveries to other practitioners and through them to everyone.

In addition to being the Father of Naturopathy in the United States Dr. lust is also the Father of the schools of that science: “The American School of Naturopathy” and the “American School of Chiropractic.” He is the originator of the Hcalth Food Stores and the founder of the first national magazine for naturopaths: the “Naturopath and Herald of Health,’ and “Natures Path’. Other magazines in foreign tongues were published by him and soon his books came to be known all over the world.

Meanwhile, Dr. Lust was matriculated and graduated from many ex- cellent schools. In 1898 he graduated from the Universal Osteopathic College of New York. He received his medical edication at the New York Homeo- pathic Medical College in 1902 and the Eclectic Medical degree in 1913. Numerous other honors and degrees were bestowed upon. him.

Dr. Lust came to this country in 1892, a youth of twenty and became a citizen in 1897. He started to practice Naturopathy and founded the American

Naturopathic Association, whose president he still is. In 1921, at the 25th Jubilee the association honored him by making him its presidént for life. He has been and is still quite active in several clubs and societies of a non-

professional nature, among them the Steuben Society, Democratic and Cath- olic Clubs and Athletic Clubs.

Dr. Lust’s literary contributions include “The Crime of Vaccination,” 191]; “Universal Naturopathic Encyclopaedia," 1918; “Zonetherapy,” 1928; “Naturo- pathic Treatment,” 1931; “Phytotherapy,” “The Biological Blood Wash,” “Herbs and Their Uses,” “The Hot Water Cure,’ “Vitalism Series,’ etc. Not satisfied with all these activities, Dr. Lust organized and operated two healtn institutions and resorts, one at Butler, New Jersey, in the most beautiful part of the Ramapo Mountains with all the charms of forest and stream. Light- air cottages are provided for living outdoors during the summer months. Through the two parks, one for women, and one for men, flows a mountain stream where the guests could have their share of sun, light, and air health baths. Earth and clay packs are used and fasting, vegetable and fruit diets are advocated. A large, well equipped physical culture open air gymnasium is also featured. Almost identical conditions were featured at Yungborn,

[15 J

Tangerine, Florida, an all-year round nealth resort on beautiful Lake Ola. Both ventures met with success at their very beginning. Numerous men and women attribute their health to visiting these popular spots regularly. Many a Naturopath perfected himself, post graduating under tne genial guidance of the great “Father of Naturopathy of the United States.’ Dr. Lust is a member of the “National Association of Naturopathic Herbalists of America,” and a Fellow of the Emerson University Research Council.” He is a life member of the “International Society of Naturopathic Physicians.” He holds several degrees from the institutions formerly headed by Dr, Carl Schultz, from the “Naturopathic Institute of California” and the “California University of Liberal Physicians,” now “Emerson University.”

Until a couple of years ago Dr, Lust emanated health and virility, Then a fire occurred at Tangerine in which he suffered severe injuries, following which he was incapacitated for some time. Even though he has not recov- ered his full vitality, he never relinquished his place as the foremost fighter for Naturopathy in America. Let us hope that he will be in our midst for many a year to come and to continue to be a shining example for the coming generation of geniune doctors of naturopathy.

HIPPOCRATES (460 B.C.—357 B.C.) Most celebrated physician of antiquity; known as the “Father of Modern Medicine’; formulated the Hippocrate Oath and admonished: “Let Foods Be Your Medicine And Your Medicine Your Food".


Founder, first water cure system; discoveries resulted from keen observa- tion of animals in their natural surroundings; applied same measures to own injuries with success, then to those of neighbors. At the age of 26, built and established first water cure at Graefenberg in Austrian Silesia; success was meteoric; work became so well known throughout world that a letter from an inquirer in United States reached him bearing the simple address, “‘Vincenz Priessnitz, Europe’’ and reposes in the Museum at Graefenberg.

RICKLI, ARNOLD (Born Feb. 13, 1823, died 1926) Born at Veldes-Krdinola, Austria, Founder of the light and air cures, which he called the Atmospheric Cure. In 1848 established first institu- tion for light and air cure at Veldes-Krainola. He said, “Water is good, Air is better, but Light is the best of all”.

HAZZARD, LINDA BURFIELD (1850-1939) Outstanding exponent of therapy of tasting,

DEWEY. EDWARD BURFIELD, M.D, Originator, “No Breakfast Plan’ of treatment and living; successfully lec- tured here and abroad; lectures incorporated in a book, “New Science of Living”.

MACFADDEN, BERNARR (born Aug. 14, 1868) Originator of “PHYSCULTOPATHY”, a complete system of treatment. He is the founder and editor of Physica] Culture magazine, which first appeared in 1899,

LEE, ELMER, M.D. An exvonent of Nature Cure by practical experience; a tireless investiga- tor; for many years editor of the Health Culture magazine, He is one of the two remaining physicians who championed the move to make Dr. Benedict Lust life president, when efforts were made to split the ranks at the Hotel Commodore in 1921. The vote was carried unanimously,

SCHROTH, JOHANN (Feb. 11, 1798-Mar. 26, 1856) The theory of warm moisture; also the idea of dry diet and fasting cure which became the foundation of the Schroth Cure

[ 16 }


When one walks in on Dr, Frederick W. Collins at his office one would hardly suspect that he has so many talents and facets of knowledge, Even though something electric emanating from his person may tell you what to expect. One would judge him to be rather a man of fifty, while he is past seventy. The last two decades had very little effect on his appearance, but none on his energy nor on his vitality. Now, as ever, he continues to fight for the right of his profession, as well as for his own.

A great number of honors have been bestowed upon Dr. Collins. Al- though a licensed physician, an M.D., he is the country’s outstanding ‘pro- tagonist for drugless methods and is rightfully termed “Consulting Natur- opathic Physicians of America,” as many orthodox doctors seek his advice in stubborn cases. He has letters from all over the world from members of our profession seeking consultation either in person or by mail. He, like Dr. Carl Schultz of California, has the happy faculty of abstracting all that is good in Naturopathy, Osteopathy and Chiropractic. He attended the found- ers’ schools in these three fields, Lust's, Still's, and Palmer's, believing in the fountain heads as the true scource of knowledge. From his knowl- edge thus obtained, he formulated courses of study in his combind schools.

Dr. Collins is the president of the FIRST NATIONAL UNIVERSITY of NATUROPATHY and Allied Sciences. It embraces a combination of the New Jersey College of Osteopathy, the United States School of Naturopathy, the Mecca College of Chiropractic, and the U. S. School of Physiotherapy. Under the sponsorship of the United States Government more than four thousand World War No. } veterans graduated from this University,

Dr. Collins has been recognized as the leading authority on Iridiag- nosis, Several thousand copies of his book on that subject have so far been sold. He is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Physicians and Sur- geons, the New Jersey College of Osteopathy, the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy, Palmer School of Chiropractic, the American School of Natur- opathy, the MacFadden School of Physicultopathy and many other institu- tions of learning. He is a life member of the Philadelphia Osteopathic Hospital, president of the American Academy of Medicine and Surgery for the study of the destructive value of drugs, serums and vaccines. He is a member of the Allied Medical Association of America, Vice-President of the American Naturopathic Ass'n, President of the American Drugless Hos- pital Ass’n, of the American Naturopathic Ass’n of New Jersey, of the White Cross Society for First Aid to the Injured and of the American Academy of Chiropractic Research. He is secretary of the National Ass'n of Drugless Practitioners of the United States of America, a Fellow of Emerson Univer- sity Research Council, an Honorary Member of the Lucem Institute and society of Sciences, an Alumni Member of the Lucem College of Sciences. He also holds membership in the International Society of Naturopathic Physicians, National Ass'n of Naturopathic Herbalists of America, Australia, Great Britain and other countries. He holds active and honorary member- ships in many other professional associations, too numerous to mention at this time. Dr. Collins is the publisher of “Mental Radionics” and of the famous “Universal Naturopathic Tonic Treatment.” He is the author of “Iridiagnosis by Observation of the Eye” as well as “The Naturopathic Method of Reducing Dislocations” and many books on Psychic phenomena and natural healing methods, etc., etc,

Dr. Collins was the first physician in America to establish a Free clinic for Infantile Paralysis, and has conducted a free drugless clinic since 1910 treating children. He was twice a candidate for the Assembly of New Jer- sey on the Anti-Medical Trust Federation ticket, and was once a candidate for President of the United States of America, He holds the title of Doc- tor of Indian Philosophy and that of Indian Medicine. His most famous contribution to Naturopathy is his “Harmony Diet’. More than 850,000


copies have been distributed, and another 50,000 are now ready to go on

sale. It is based on educational! items in such a manner that the patient can easily select his own food. Dr. Collins states his belief in vegetarian-

ism with modification, in the April issue of 1943 of the American Vegetarian. He eats meat once a week and fish on Fridays. He is seventy-two years young and has bested medicos in forty-one court battles.

All too often Dr. Collins, because of his virility and fighting spirit has

been called to defend {or battle for) his colleagues of the Drugless Profes- sion. His famous fight for the Osteopaths of New Jersey is a case in point. In 1913 an osteopathic amendment was passed in that state granting grad- uates of recognized schools the right to be licensed, providing that they had

practiced one year prior to the act. Graduates of the New Jersey College

of Osteopathy were adjudged ineligible because some of the rival schools considered their training inadequate and too closely resembling chiroprac-

tic in theory and technique. After the loss of much time, money, and office practice, Dr. Collings succeeded in getting licenses for everybody but him- self. This seemed almost persecution. At last he too, succeeded in win- ning his own case on his merits, witnesses attested to many valuable cures at his hands and the coveted license was granted.

KNEIPP, FATHER SEBASTIAN (May 1821-1894) Born at Stephensreid near Ottobeuren. As a weak young man trying to help himself, came upon “Hahn's Water Doctor’, one of the first treatise | on the subject of Water Cure. Father Kneipp followed out the same prog- | ressive development at Preissnitz from treatment of self to friends and . finally those he served as priest. Kneipp developed his system along his | own lines, entirely independent of any other system. He wrote a number | of books, which appeared in every language; established the Kneipp Cure | at Woerishofen which still operates today. Doctor Lust studied under him in 1891. Kneipp and Priessnitz water cures are keystones of Naturopathy.

HAHN, M.D. Mid-Eighteenth Century physician. Wrote a system of Water Cure known | s “Enforced Water Cure”. This laid foundation for reviving the therapy. | It has never been shown that Hahn influenced Priessnitz, who followed his ; own observations |

BECHAMP, PIERRE JACQUE ANTOINE. M.D., D.C. Bechamp discovered process of fermentation. Discoverer of smallest ccc of life, which he called Microzyma (minute ferment bodies). Microzyma! theory of disease refutes the commonly accepted germ theory of disease. | Microzymian theory proves the very foundation on which Naturopathy rests. | It proves the unity of disease as expounded by Louis Kuhne; and his unity of basic treatment as propounded by Adolph Just.

PARACELUS (1493-1541) Famed Swiss physician and naturalist. First to advance theory that life's | processes are chemical. His motto was “Natura Artis Magistra” (Nature is: the Teacher of Science).
