Natural Foods

In the following I shall give the outline a natural diet regimen which has been found by experience to meet all requirements of the healthy organism, even when people have to work very hard physically or mentally.  In case of disease, certain modifications may have to be made according to individual conditions.  Persons in a low, negative state, whether physical, mental or psychical, may temporarily require the addition of flesh foods to their diet.
