Diseases of the Skin - James Compton Burnett
The treatment of skin diseases as merely local affairs concerning the skin only, as is now current with nearly all medical men of all schools and all the world over, is, nothing less than a crime against humanity, and eminently characteristic of the cultured shallowness of the medical profession today. . The skin is a very important organ of the body. . It stands in intimate, though ill-understood, relationship to all the internal organs and parts. . Its healthiness is conditioned by the general healthiness of the organism i.e., a healthy skin on an unhealthy body is inconceivable. . Being biologically within the organism, being fed from within, having its life from within, having its health from within, & having its diseases from within, it must also be treated medicinally from within.
