Natural Hygiene is an extremely effective system of achieving overall human health and happiness. The name comes from two words: Natural – in harmony with Nature, and Hygiene – the science of excellent health.
Natural Hygiene recognizes that the human body is a fully self-sufficient organism that is self-directing, self-constructing, self-preserving and self-healing; and that it is capable of maintaining itself in superb functioning order, completely free of disease, if its basic needs are properly met.
Natural Hygiene is the only systematic and logical study of what it takes for people to achieve health and excellence in the many different spheres of life. Through discerning observation and careful study of nature, and of mankind’s harmonious place in it, Natural Hygiene has come to encompass all that serves to support and encourage health and personal growth for everyone.
Natural Hygiene teaches us to trust ourselves and our bodies, to observe the body and its vital signs, and to a live simple, natural lifestyle to recover from disease and to maintain health. The focus is on the factors of health – water, food, sunshine, sleep, exercise, etc. – that will enable you to truly get well; to reach and maintain a high state of health. Our bodies can heal themselves, if we learn how to cooperate with it properly. Self-study and self-reliance is encouraged.
“The underlying basis of Natural Hygiene is that the body is self-cleansing, self-healing and self-maintaining. Natural Hygiene is based on the idea that all the healing power of the universe is within the human body; that nature is always correct and can not be improved upon. We experience problems of health (i.e. excess weight, pain, stress, disease) only when we break the natural laws of life.”
– Harvey Diamond, Fit for Life, 1985
The Essential Natural Hygiene Course (ENHC) will provide you with a very solid and substantial foundation in all the basic principles of Natural Hygiene. This course was originally written and compiled by T. C. Fry. It has been significantly updated, revised, edited and reformatted by Dr. Robert Sniadach. It provides you full knowledge of the lifestyle practices that result in optimal health. Important hygienic health concepts and principles are clearly presented, and, just as importantly, erroneous concepts and principles that most of us have previously learned and believe are exposed. It is just as important to get rid of false information as it is to learn the simple truths of optimal health care and lifestyle practices!
This excellent grounding in all the principles and practices of Natural Hygiene will greatly help you to follow through in practice, since being armed with solid knowledge can definitely help to keep you focused on your path to high-level health and well-being. It will also help you to integrate this superb lifestyle into your daily home routine for your loved ones. No doubt you will get many questions asked of you, and this Essential Course will give you many simple and straightforward answers to people’s questions about this lifestyle. Upon completion of the Essential Natural Hygiene Course, you will be well-qualified to assist many, many others in their own search for truthful answers to confusing health questions and painful health problems.
Natural Hygiene offers something very different from the what is normally learned in the conventional health care field. Instead of treating symptoms, it goes to the deeper – to the causes of problems. Unlike the typical therapeutic “fix it” systems of conventional and alternative health care, you will find the principles of Natural Hygiene to be firmly based on the timeless infinite wisdom of nature; it is experientially true and increasingly scientifically understood and proven. Natural Hygiene will often seem to conflict with popular notions about health, but upon deeper examination you will find that the tenets of Natural Hygiene are sound, straight forward and of good common sense. Natural Hygiene works! It is absolutely true that health is only created by healthful living. This is our focus.
The in-depth lessons you receive are rich in Anatomy, Physiology, Biology, Biochemistry, Pathology, Cytology, Physical Fitness, Holistic Living, Nutrition and Health Sciences.

This is a very “student-friendly” program and it is extremely comprehensive.
Each lesson starts with the “theme”, the basic principle expounded throughout the lesson. It provides a clear statement of the lesson’s objectives. All major sections are identified and the instructions are clearly listed.
The material in each lesson presents a strong argument in support of its theme. New vocabulary is clearly defined in separate sections. The key concepts and salient or important facts are fully developed for each lesson. Lastly, a detailed summary of each lesson, questions, supplementary text material and quizzes/work sheets are provided for easy review and to develop mastery of the materials.
The Essential Course is geared toward the newer aspirant in Natural Hygiene, and covers all the necessary ground for a comprehensive understanding of the basics. You will be challenged to learn and understand the basic principles fully, for they are often very different from what most of us have been taught regarding health care. Each lesson is focused on a particular aspect of health. The spectrum of health sciences that these lessons cover makes the full course comparable to having a health library in your own home.
