TO THE UNFORTUNATE SUFFERER FROM ILLS DESCRIBED IN THIS VOLUME AND TO THOSE WHOM I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF CURING THIS BOOK IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED

BEAUTY'S FALL.

It was an image good to see, With spirits high and full of glee, And robust health endowed; Its face was loveliness untold, Its lines were cast in beauty's mold; At its own shrine it bowed.

With perfect form in each respect, It proudly stood with head erect And skin surpassing fair; Surveyed itself from foot to head, And then complacently it said: "Naught can with me compare."

When lo the face began to pale, The body looked too thin and frail, The cheek had lost its glow; The tongue a tale of woe did tell, With nerves impaired its spirits fell; The fire of life burned low.

In the intestinal canal Waste matter lay, and sad to tell, Was left from day to day; And while it was neglected there It undermined that structure fair, And caused it to decay.

The doctor's words I would recall Who said: "Neglect precedes a fall," And verily 'tis true; For ye who disregard your health, And value not that precious wealth, Will surely live to rue.

PREFACE.

The following chapters were contributions to Health a monthly magazine published in New York City. Certain peculiarities of form and considerable repetition of statement both of which the reader cannot fail to notice are owing to the fact that about two thirds of the chapters were written under the caption "Auto genetic Poisons in the Intestinal Canal and their Auto infection." In revising these contributions for book form I have given to each chapter a caption of its leading thought; but I am convinced that repetition of some of the matters treated, especially if the repetition be in a somewhat different connection, is not such a very bad thing. I have used my blue pencil sparingly, and as a consequence the consecutive reader will find that constipation, diarrhea, biliousness, indigestion, auto infection and proctitis are treated in nearly all the chapters but with varying applications. Therefore anyone suffering from one of these complaints would better read the whole book instead of only the chapter with the corresponding title.

These pages were written for intelligent laymen by a specialist, during a busy, assiduous practice. I take such radical ground, however, going to the very root of the matter, that the general practitioner will do well to give my thesis his careful consideration; he should at least glance at the following Introduction for the gist of my claim.
