Henry Lindlahr

Henry Lindlahr (1862–1924) was the author of one of the cornerstone texts of American naturopathic medicine, Nature Cure, which includes topics about disease suppression versus elimination, hydrotherapy, and the importance of fresh air and sun bathing.

Henry Lindlahr devoted himself to healing after being helped by Father Sebastian Kneipp (1821–1897),[1][2] in Europe. He graduated from the National Medical University in Illinois.[3] In 1902, he opened his practice in Chicago. In 1914, he founded the Lindlahr Sanitarium, in Elmhurst, Illinois.[4][5]
