to the magazine of INHS, a non-profit organisation for discussing & teaching Natural Hygiene, a scientific view on health and disease with roots as far back as 1822.
"trust the body"
By following the simple rules of the socalled LAWS OF LIFE we can achieve lasting health & optimal energy.
Our goal is to teach, discuss & improve the best healing methods available. If they are low-cost or free, so much better.
We teach that drugs are unnecessary and will usually delay healing and cause new diseases.
We present excellent no-drugs methods for health recovery, tested and perfected by doctors for over 175 years.
We want to promote health independence and critical thinking.
This webpage is part of our free online magazine, produced by volunteers.
INHS has free membership, chat group and articles.
The following Natural Hygiene doctors suffered from serious diseases early in life, which (allopathic) medicine couldn't help them with. They were expected to become crippled or die. By accident they both found natural healing methods, recovered their health, and both later decided to become Natural Hygiene doctors.
"In 1976, I developed serious rheumatoid disease. My physicians told me that the condition was incurable and that I would become crippled."
INTERVIEW with Dr. Paul Goldberg:
How did you learn about Natural Hygiene?
In 1976, I developed serious rheumatoid disease. My physicians told me that the condition was incurable and that I eventually would become fully crippled.
I felt that there had to be causes for the illness and that somewhere, approaches were available to help me evolve out of the disease state.
By chance, I saw a magazine ad for the Shangri-La Natural Hygiene Institute in Bonita Springs, Fla. where I traveled and met owner R.J. Cheatham. Mr. Cheatham was a wonderful teacher and he introduced me to the concepts of Natural Hygiene. During the next year I lived at Natural Hygiene Institute. and put those concepts into practice. Later, I was hired as the facility's health director.
After leaving Natural Hygiene Institute, I pursued graduate studies in public health, followed by earning a chiropractic degree and becoming an IAHP member.
How has Natural Hygiene affected your health?
Knowledge alone about Natural Hygiene does not allow one to be healthy. It requires consistent application of the principles in all aspects of our lives. I have found the principles of Natural Hygiene to be instrumental in not only the preservation of my own health and well-being, but that of my patients as well.
I am fortunate in that my wife Bianca also appreciates a Natural Hygiene lifestyle. I met her at Esser's Ranch in Lake Worth, Fla., where she was employed at the time. We have three children, all of whom have been raised as vegetarians.
What do you see as the future of Natural Hygiene?
My main concern is that the self-empowering message of Natural Hygiene does not get confused with the many products, services, and therapies that are called "natural" these days. Too much of the "natural" health field today has to do with multilevel marketing of health products and a host of therapies, rather than teaching people how to become responsible for themselves in a way that leads to their highest level of health.
The most important thing each of us as Natural Hygienists can do to positively influence others is to set a good example in all aspects of our lives, to develop a Hygienic lifestyle, and "to practice what we preach."

"Sixteen days later, I emerged from this coma, which was literally a period of fasting, and I recovered my health."
INTERVIEW with Dr. Keki Sidhwa:
What prompted you to become a Hygienic physician?
By the age of 14, I had suffered double pneumonia, a heart condition, and seven relapses of typhoid fever. When I went into a coma and was expected to die, my mother refused any further treatment for me. Sixteen days later, I emerged from this coma, which was literally a period of fasting, and I recovered my health.
Seven years later, I read Dr. John Tilden's classic book, Toxemia Explained, and switched my studies from medicine and surgery to naturopathy and osteopathy. I completed my studies at the Edinburgh School of Therapeutics and the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy.
When I discovered the writings of Dr. Herbert Shelton, I recognized the importance of sharing these ideas with people everywhere. I have dedicated my life to helping people to recover their health through this knowledge.
What sets Natural Hygiene apart from other health systems?
Natural Hygiene doesn't single out one specific thing that is responsible for your overall health. Natural Hygiene comprises all of the facets of healthful living, including physical activity and exercise, wholesome diet, pure air and water, adequate rest and sleep, mental and emotional poise, and creative activity. Natural Hygiene is the art and science of living in such a way that all of these aspects are provided abundantly.
What advice do you have for newcomers to Natural Hygiene?
Approach Natural Hygiene with an open mind. There is so much to learn! Recognize that Natural Hygiene is more than body building or a good diet. It is a way of looking inward, of being totally alert, of realizing your fullest potential.
