Origins of Naturopathic Medicine, the first of a twelve volume series entitled The Hevert Collection: In Their Own Words, returns to print prominent contributors to the journals published by Benedict Lust between 1900 and 1923. Topics in this first volume include the medical laws of Naturopathy, discussions of therapies, descriptions of health resorts and clinics founded, colleges and school needs, medical legislations of the time, legal issues faced, strategies to discredit Naturopathy, issues of medical freedom, Convention business, physical therapy, and much more. Many illustrations and an index are included. Benedict Lust (1872-1945) at the age of 29 had already founded North America's first School of Naturopathic Medicine in New York City (1901). From 1896 to his death, his journal, The Naturopath and Herald of Health, provided a sophisticated, widely utilized forum for the Naturopathic profession in the early 20th century and helped to establish the educational foundation and framework for the naturopathic profession. Organized and selected by Sussanna Czeranko, ND, The Hevert Collection gives readers access to the issues which were faced by the early Naturopaths and which shaped and coalesced the profession, preparing those who followed these extraordinary pioneers to endure many obstacles. Many valuable lessons from this restored literature guide and teach us a century later—when many of the same issues continue.
