Lugol's Solution of Iodine
"Folk Medicine in Vermont is interested in three R's-Resistance, Repair, and Recovery. First the individual asks himself whether his resistance to disease is as it should be. Next, is he able to repair tissue injury due to accident should it occur? Finally, if sickness should come, is his body able to bring about recovery? Somehow during the passing years he has learned that iodine is related to the ability to resist disease."

"If you care to go to school go to the honey bees, fowl, cats, dogs, goats, mink, calves, dairy cows, bulls and horses and allow them to teach you their ways, you will gain an insight into physiological and biochemical medicine not to be learned from medicalbooks. Verified by observing results in animals, this medicine, which is passed from generation to generation by word of mouthenables great numbers of Vermonters to continue carrying heavy daily work loads and to go on well past the Scriptural three-score-and-ten years into good physical and mental vigor, good digestion, good eyesight and good hearing, avoiding senility to the very end."Dr. D.C. Jarvis
"I believe the doctor of the future will be a teacher as well as a physician. His real job will be to teach people how to be healthy." from Folk Medicine by Dr. D.C. Jarvis
