This section of the book is from the "Handbook of Nature Cure Volume One: Nature Cure vs. Medical Science" book, by John L. Fielder.
Under this heading we find physical culture, weight lifting, sports and gymnastics. Running, Jogging, Swimming and all non-violent sports are the ideal form of exercise. Violent movements should be avoided. Those exercises which rotate, flex and stretch the spine are the most valuable as personal systems of exercise. Conscious posture correction has great value in overcoming some of the wrong postural habits of civilised life.
