“THE several years that have passed since the second edition of this work was issued have brought daily proof of the success of the claims then made. In this, the third edition, the author trusts that improved form, more numerous citations, and greater detail will serve to stimulate both the scientific and the popular mind to a realization of the importance of systematic investigation of the theory and the practice of Fasting for the Prevention and the Cure of Disease. Stress must be laid upon the truth in the statement that the fast is but a means to an end. Full vigor and complete recuperation are not to be had in a moment, and the completed benefits of the treatment are seldom enjoyed until three, four, or six months after the end of abstinence. Patience, self-denial, and faith are the moral requirements, with physical regeneration as the reward for their in describing the symptoms of disease and the anatomy of the body, it has been necessary to use terms that are technical in character. To render the text perfectly intelligible to the lay mind, a glossary has been appended which contains the definitions of all words difficult of interpretation. The facts presented and the arguments made are intended primarily for general intelligence; but, since the facts are corroborated, it is hoped that earnest investigation will follow by those who seek truth in its every phase”.

Olalla, Washington, December, 1912.

GLOSSARY

The book generated quite a lot of controversy, but it did go into four editions. There were people who were appreciative of this new technique of seeking cure from all kinds of diseases. At the same hand the book was severely criticized. The publishers are not taking any stance on the issue and leave it to the good judgement of the readers to make their own minds as to the techniques presented in the book. However, before following, expert advice must be sought as in any other technique of alternative healing.
