This is the 25th edition of the book that was originally publishes in the 1880's by Elma Stuart. The book is about Elma’s personal experience of curing her chronic diseases by adopting a diet of only meat and water as prescribed by Dr. James Henry Salisbury. It was observed to help everything from diabetes to epilepsy to rheumatism to gout to migraines to insomnia to asthma to cancer. Elma was bedridden for 9 years with what today would be labeled Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She went to 43 doctors but none of their recommendations ever did anything for her. She then learned about Dr. Salisbury’s diet through an ad in her local newspaper and ordered his book, The Relation of Alimentation and Disease. Elma says it took her about a year on Dr. Salisbury’s all-meat diet to regain her health. She continued to eat nothing but meat and hot water for over a decade by the time this edition was published.
