• All along the history of medicine, the really great physicians were peculiarly free from the bondage of drugs. – Sir William Osler (1849 – 1919)
  • For 30 years, I have tried every single application upon myself. Three times – this I acknowledge openly – I found myself induced to change my system, from great to still greater softness. According to my present conviction, now fixed for 17 years and tested by innumerable cures, he who knows how to apply the water in the plainest, easiest, and most simple way, will produce the most profitable results. – Sebastian Kneipp (1824 – 1897)
  • There is a vast difference between curing and treating. There is a vast difference between doing something for the patient and just merely doing something to the patient. – Otis G. Carroll (1879 – 1962)
  • Never go to bed without trying to learn something new each day. – John Bastyr (1912 – 1995)
  • In curing, we are trying to get somewhere, we are looking for answers. In curing, our efforts are specifically designed to make something happen. In healing, we live questions instead of answers. We hang out in the unknown. We trust the emergence of whatever will be. We trust the insight will come. The challenge in medicine is not the choices between one and the other. We need both. – Paul Epstein
