“It is always a much easier task to educate uneducated people than to re-educate the mis-educated.”
Herbert M. Shelton, Getting Well

“Surgeons can cut out everything except cause.”
Herbert M. Shelton

“You don't need treatment. The fever, inflammation, coughing, etc., constitute the healing process. Just get out of their way and permit them to complete their work. Don't try to 'aid' nature. She doesn't need your puny aid—she only asks that you cease interfering.”
Herbert M. Shelton, Getting Well
