The Need For Truth
by Dr. Herbert M. Shelton

Man must be taught that health is a result of obedience to laws of life that are as unchangeable as the law of gravity; disease is the result of violations of the same laws. Health is to be restored by a return to obedience to organic law.

A knowledge of the vital laws, the special laws of organic nature as distinct from chemical and mechanical laws, will result in the reversal of this practice. Such knowledge will enable people to understand that the best way to care for the sick is to remove the causes of the sickness, and not to suppress the vital struggle against impurities or poisons. It would teach them to provide the body with what it needs and can use rather than to try to force upon it things that it cannot use and does not need and
will have to expel.
