Public Opinion


The public opinion in 1895 was one that could be best described as outside-in. All approaches to “health” including medicine were based on the idea that sickness, disease and lack of health came from the outside, from the environment,or something in it. that was the case for even the so-called drugless approaches and had been for perhaps a thousand years. Medicine was the most popular and of course the most widely accepted by the public (although not nearly as much as today) It was, and still is, the most powerful. The only argument/approach that disagreed with that idea were those that said that it is what you naturally put into or did to your body that is more important than the external environment.
