Dear GetWell Friends! Dr. Shelton published a 7 - Volume Set entitled "The Hygienic System" throughout the 1930s and 1940s. GetWell offers Volumes I and II, now republished by The Florida People. Volumes III, IV, V, VI, and VII are now available through The GetWellHStayWell, America! Website. Volume VI was published in 1939. It is 440 pages. In Volume VI, Dr. Shelton uses an elegant word: "BIOGONY" to mean "the struggle of life." And he teaches the meaning of "wellness" by showing its flip-side acute and chronic disease and how to reverse these processes. VOLUME VI is a detailed, SHELTONIZED elaboration of DR. TILDEN'S LANDMARK LITTLE BOOK in the hygienic movement TOXEMIA EXPLAINED.

"The disciples of Natural Hygiene strive to deserve the blessings that the dupes of the drug-mongers attempt to buy across the counter; instead of changing their hospital or their course of medication, the Hygienists will change their habits; and their loss of faith in a few popular superstitions will be compensated by an abundant gain in health." Dr. Felix Oswald, Early 19th Century.
