Definitions and explication of Naturopathy by Ludwig Staden, Naturarzt:
„Naturopathy’s materia medica consists of the principal elements which are derived from nature: light, air, water, heat and clay, beside non-stimulating diet, exercise and rest, electricity, magnetism and massage, calisthenics, physical culture, mental culture, etc.
–Ludwig Staden (Staden, 1902, p.16-17)
A true Naturopath before all must be a teacher of health.“
-Ludwig Staden (Staden, 1902, p.71)
