This first lesson presents Natural Hygiene, the health systembased soundly on the principles and practices that are in accordwith our biological heritage.The message of this lesson is essentially this: Optimum healthwill exist if our living practices are correct. From optimal healthflow goodness and virtues, harmony and happiness. Good health isa necessary condition for the enjoyment of life.The key to a healthy life is balance. Once the simple needs of health are determined, then one moves into applying those needsin an ever more balanced fashion. This is the art of life; the mas-tery of life.As a setting for our studies, this lesson establishes some of thebasic principles of health and sets the philosophical tone.
The purpose of this lesson is to introduce you to the philosophy,principles and practices of Natural Hygiene and to this course.The primary concept of Natural Hygiene is that health is normaland natural. And, further, that perfect health results from observ-ing in practice the causes of health.

The fundamental essentials that build and maintain health;4. The basic causes of disease and suffering;5. That all healing is self-healing;6. How Natural Hygiene holds individual prerogatives in esteem;7. That the words “cure” and “medicine” convey meanings thatsimply do not exist in nature;8. The boundless possibilities for human happiness and progress if we again observe the mandate and dictates of our pristine legacy.
