The Nature Doctor by Alfred Vogel
The classic text on natural health
A manual of traditional and complementary medicine
Alfred Vogel came from a Swiss family where the secrets of herbalism were known and practised. From early childhood he was eager to learn about healing powers of plants and bit by bit he collected and expanded the traditional and empirical knowledge of European folk-medicine.
From 1929 he reported his experiences and observations as a nature practitioner, nutritionist, researcher of medicinal plants and discoverer of natural healing powers, in his monthly periodical Gesundheits Nachrichten (A. Vogel’s Health News).
'It is never too late to support Nature in its tendency to cure since the laws of Nature command the preservation of life.’
