A quote from Dr. Tilden’s book, Toxemia Explained: “It took a long time to evolve out of the one conventional idea of many diseases into the truth that there is but ONE disease, and that the four hundred catalogued so-called diseases are but different manifestations of Toxemia — blood and tissue uncleanliness. Auto-intoxication or self-poisoning arises from problems with the body’s own elimination systems i.e., the bowels, kidneys, lungs and skin. The body uses these systems to eliminate waste products. Partial failure of these systems to operate efficiently can be caused by insufficient rest, blood acidity, dietary and mineral imbalances, dehydration and overeating.” — John H. Tilden (1851-1940)
Perfect health and wellness: many of us search for it, yet it too often evades us. Although a gazillion weight-loss, diet, and nutrition books and blog posts have been written on how to be healthy, we still haven’t been able to figure out how to live free of sickness and disease. However, there was a man who just might have figured out the secret to perfect health. He lived over 100 years ago, and his name was Dr. J.H. Tilden. Dr. Tilden’s take on what makes the human body unhealthy was remarkably simple. He discovered that the body is an intelligent machine that runs according to simple rules. Violate those rules, and the body starts to malfunction. Keep violating the rules and the body will fall ill and express symptoms that modern medicine calls disease. Unfortunately, some of the greatest, simplest solutions to our problems have been suppressed and buried amidst less helpful and unnecessarily complicated (and expensive) fixes. However, Dr. Tilden’s book, Toxemia Explained: The True Interpretation of the Cause of Disease, brilliantly explains the real cause of disease: toxemia stemming from not playing by the body’s rules, i.e. getting sufficient rest, hydration, nutrition, etc. Dr. Tilden’s book is out of print, but you can still find it on Amazon. Reading it will change your life by changing how you think about the cause of disease.
