Hygienic Advice

Of the variety of hygienic recommendations the following four should be accepted at this stage:

1. Washing the body with soap daily, if possible, preferably in the morning.

2. Rising early and going to bed early.

3. Not wearing clothes made of synthetic fabrics, especially those that have close contact with skin.

4. Exposing the entire body to sunlight: it brings health, which is quite necessary. In winter one should periodically expose the body to the light of "quartz" lamps, especially in case of ailments (those of catarrhal type, in particular).

Other hygienic recommendations as well as advice on healing oneself of common diseases can be found in the book [11].
