Dr. Jackson's Method

Fortunatelyóin the providence of God, no doubtóthere had come into their hands, probably through an "exchange" of papers at the Review office, either the Yates County Chronicle, of Penn Yan, New York, or some journal quoting from it, an extended article entitled "Diphtheria, Its Causes, Treatment and Cure." It was written by Dr. James Jackson, of Dansville, New York. Eagerly James and Ellen White read it. It made sense, and they immediately followed its treatment in every detail. The treatment outlined was simpleóit required only a washtub, towels, sheets, and blanketsóbut demanded diligent attention and earnest labor. In great detail Dr. Jackson pointed out the procedures that would bring relief and finally a cure. These were attained by the simple means we today call hydrotherapyówith proper baths, packs, rest, fresh air, and, above all, absence of anxiety.
