#1283 The best six doctors

To insure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.   ~William Londen

Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.  ~ Hippocrates

To avoid sickness eat less; to prolong life worry less.  ~ Chu Hui Weng

Fresh air impoverishes the doctor.  ~ Danish proverb

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.   ~ quoted in "The Health Club" in School Life, Vol. IV (January - June 1920)
