The first section contains ten chapters (111 pages) is background; why the soil is depleted, letters from his mentor, a brief introduction to iridology, and an explanation of his sanitarium experience.
What he called a sanitarium, today we would probably probably call a medically supervised spa. His patients lived at the sanitarium; he oversaw their nutrition, exercise, water intake, and numerous aspects of their daily life. As a result, he was able to constantly monitor their progress, and the impact of his recommendations.
The second section is where he gets to the most usable and important information. He describes 16 chemical elements that he believes we must obtain from food, and that are necessary for proper health. He gives them all nick names, such as calcium, the "knitter," iodine, the "metabolizer," and manganese, the "love" element. Each chapter is an in depth discussion of the element, its benefits, which foods provide it, what a deficiency causes, what an excess causes, and numerous case histories of people who recovered from chronic illnesses caused by nutritional issues. There are many striking before and after photos. While he can ramble and repeat himself, I refer to these 16 chapters on a regular basis.
His chapter on iodine is the best description of the relationship between plant based iodine (seaweeds) and thyroid health that I've ever read. If every endocrinologist read this chapter, there would never be another thyroidectomy (thyroid removal) due to goiter again.Read more ›
I've used the information in "The Chemistry of Man" since my receipt of the book in December of 2014. As a result, I feel much better and hope to continually improve.
I love the breakdown of the chemistry. I have printed each nutrient reference such as calcium, nitrogen, magnesium, etc. From the list of those mentioned, I try to add something to my diet daily.
The book is a great one for reference and is an asset to my family and me. I would definitely refer it to others to use in their library as I am doing in mine.
