["A Curious Cure"]
John Russell Strand Magazine
Hygiene, Medical Treatment, Health, Heterodoxy
Details the 'curious cure' propounded by an Austrian doctor who claims that clothes are 'anti-hygienic, a source of physical and moral degradation' because the enclosed 'skin is not allowed to act as it is meant by Nature to act'. With men and women segregated, the doctor's 'patients and guests lie with but a rag round their loins and bask in the sun and air and rain'.
