Remove the cause: Works for more than just diseases!
What most of the world seems to misunderstand about natural hygiene is that almost all illnesses are self-inflicted. Rarely does someone actually get ill when they do everything right. In fact before we humans destroyed the beautiful planet we live on, it was difficult to become ill because we had only the best quality food, we had nearly no pollutants, we had clean air, sunshine available to us every day, we had to get exercise in order to have food and stay away from danger, everything was just right to stay healthy.
Now illness is so common that nearly every human on the planet is infected with something every few weeks or months. It's assumed that this is normal or natural. It is not normal nor natural but totally unnatural to be ill. It's just our body removing toxins that should have never been there in the first place.
Modern man believes that the way to health is by adding more toxins to an already toxic body. The people go to a doctor or to the pharmacy and take medicine (which is always toxic) in order to get relief from their illness. They sometimes actually do feel better but not because they removed the cause of the illness but because their body has stopped creating the symptoms and instead it is trying to deal with a new emergency, the toxin that was just ingested, the medicine.
Sometimes it's actually a placebo affect that helps as the consumer takes a pill that was marketed to do something, quite often it does what the consumer expects. This is a mental change and not a physical one.
Natural hygiene on the other hand proposes to eliminate the cause of the illness and eventually it will go away. That seems to make perfect sense to most people but in practice they almost all go directly to the pharmacy to buy more toxins to cure their illness. Logically it doesn't make a lot of sense to take a pill to heal something when you continue to cause the problem. It will just come right back.
This philosophy works not only in health but in many other fields as well. For example if you have children and they act poorly, or misbehave, punishing them is not what will remove the cause of their poor behavior. This might make them behave for the short term to avoid another punishment but it certainly will not permanently change their poor behavior.
If parents of a misbehaving child find out the cause of the bad behavior then they could easily remove the cause and the poor behavior will stop. This could be a simple change in diet, exercise, sleep, sunshine, or one of the other essentials. It could also be something else. Whatever it is, children can be made to behave once the cause is removed.
The same goes for animals, or pets. If they behave poorly they also need to be analyzed and the cause found so that it too can be removed. Once the cause of the bad behavior is found and removed the bad behavior will change.
The same goes for most everything in life. If your relationship is not going as you truly wanted, find the cause of the problem and remove it. If your automobile is not performing as expected then find the root cause and remove the problem. If we approach most of our problems in this way, we'll receive much better results and less difficulties with these problems coming back.
