The Science of Being Well


This volume is the second of a series, the first of which is "THE
SCIENCE OF GETTING RICH." As that book is intended solely for those who
want money, so this is for those who want health, and who want a
practical guide and handbook, not a philosophical treatise. It is an
instructor in the use of the universal Principle of Life, and my effort
has been to explain the way in so plain and simple a fashion that the
reader, though he may have given no previous study to New Thought or
metaphysics, may readily follow it to perfect health. While retaining
all essentials, I have carefully eliminated all non-essentials; I have
used no technical, abstruse, or difficult language, and have kept the
one point in view at all times.

As its title asserts, the book deals with science, not speculation. The
monistic theory of the universe--the theory that matter, mind,
consciousness, and life are all manifestations of one Substance--is now
accepted by most thinkers; and if you accept this theory, you cannot
deny the logical conclusions you will find herein. Best of all, the
methods of thought and action prescribed have been tested by the author
in his own case, and in the case of hundreds of others during twelve
years of practice, with continuous and unfailing success. I can say of
the Science of Being Well that it works; and that wherever its laws are
complied with, it can no more fail to work than the science of geometry
can fail to work. If the tissues of your body have not been so destroyed
that continued life is impossible, you can get well; and if you will
think and act in a Certain Way, you will get well.

If the reader wishes to fully understand the monistic theory of the
cosmos, he is recommended to read Hegel and Emerson; to read also "The
Eternal News," a pamphlet by J. J. Brown, 300 Cathcart Road, Govanhill,
Glasgow, Scotland. Some enlightenment may also be found in a series of
articles by the author, which were published in _The Nautilus_, Holyoke,
Mass., during the year 1909, under the title, "What Is Truth?"

Those who wish more detailed information as to the performance of the
voluntary functions--eating, drinking, breathing, and sleeping--may read
"New Science of Living and Healing," "Letters to a Woman's Husband," and
"The Constructive Use of Foods," booklets by W. D. Wattles, which may be
obtained from the publishers of this book. I would also recommend the
writings of Horace Fletcher, and of Edward Hooker Dewey. Read all these,
if you like, as a sort of buttress to your faith; but let me warn you
against making the mistake of studying many conflicting theories, and
practicing, at the same time, parts of several different "systems"; for
if you get well, it must be by giving your WHOLE MIND to the _right_ way
of thinking and living. Remember that the SCIENCE OF BEING WELL claims
to be a complete and sufficient guide in every particular. Concentrate
upon the way of thinking and acting it prescribes, and follow it in
every detail, and you will get well; or if you are already well, you
will remain so. Trusting that you will go on until the priceless
blessing of perfect health is yours, I remain,

Very truly yours,
