    Excerpt from The Lifting Cure: A Scentific Application of the Laws of Motion or Mechanical Action to Physical Culture and the Cure of Disease

    Physically, a human being is a machine; and, being the highest type of organization, is, of necessity, the most perfect machine. The perfect action of the steam-engine depends upon the quality, form, and adjustment of its several parts. These conditions being defective, the action of the machine is imperfect. The same principle applies to man. Perfection and proper adjustment of the parts or organs, obedience to the fundamental law of mechanical action, is strength and health. The reverse is weakness, disease, and premature death. The more perfect the machine, the more delicate in adjustment and complicated in structure, the more serious are the consequences of any violation of the laws of its mechanism. Taking mankind as we find them, weakness and disease is the rule, health and strength the exception. The reverse is the natural order. Hence it is clear that the mechanical, hygienic, and psychological laws which govern man's existence, growth, and culture, are violated. We require, therefore, a system of mental and physical discipline which will put man in harmony with those general laws. The Lifting Cure, a scientific application of exercise with heavy weights, furnishes such a system of treatment.

    This system strengthens the weak organs, and expels disease by a graduated, co-operative exercise of the whole body. The weak organs, by the use of weights which tax their power largely, gain strength, proportionately, more rapidly than the strong and healthy parts, to which the same weights give only a moderate exercise. Moreover, since all parts of the body sympathize one with another, in health or disease, the weak parts are aided in their effort to become stronger by the increasing vitality of the system in general. Thus the strength of the whole body is augmented and equalized, the weak parts are built up, disease is expelled, and the individual becomes uniformly strong, and consequently healthy.
