Description

Excerpt from The Principles of Physiology Applied to the Preservation of Health, and to the Improvement of Physical and Mental Education I had first occasion to feel and to observe the evils arising from the ignorance which prevails in society in regard to it. Impressed afterward more deeply than ever with the interest and utility of the study, I contributed two or three articles on the subject to one of our periodical journals, and resolved to make them the basis, at some future time, of a more de tailed and connected exposition. This I have now attempted; not, I need scarcely add, with the view of superseding the physician by making every man his own doctor, or of recommending the general pe rusal of professional treatises - for both practices in duce many more ailments than they cure - but simply with the hope that the method which 1 have followed, of connecting physiological details with practical ap plications, may be found useful and interesting to both the student and the general reader.
