Be the Boss of Your Own Health Through the Nature Cure Approach
Use of nature cure as an enabler for being the boss of your own health (taking charge of your own health) is based on the simplicity of the nature cure approach as compared to the orthodox medical approach in addressing health matters. Lindlahr (1922) argues that nature cure is considered an “exact science”, which reduces complexity and confusion to simplicity and clearness, and that science becomes “exact science” only when the underlying laws which correlate and unify its scattered facts and theories have been discovered. When these simple laws are rightly understood and applied , they would do for medical science what the law of gravitation has done for physics and astronomy, and what the laws of chemical affinity have done for chemistry, and would place medical science in the ranks of exact sciences. The understanding and proper application of these nature cure laws ans principles will explain every fact and phenomenon in the processes of health, disease and cure, and will enable even any average person (with no extensive knowledge in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology , pathology, etc.) to reason from simple, natural laws and principles to their logical effects on health matters.
Being your own health boss is enabled by the fact that , without necessarily being knowledgeable in health matters, mere understanding of only two pillars of the fundamental nature cure principles and religiously applying and complying with the related laws, can take care of virtually all of our health concerns, without input from health experts, or only minimum input from relevant professionals. The two main formulated principles within the philosophy of nature cure are the Constructive Principle in Nature and the Destructive Principle in Nature,. They are defined by Lindlahr (1922) as follows:
