Preventative Health & Emunctology

Preventive Health is the field of Health Science based on Evidence Based Health (EBH) and it is practiced by all Health Care Practitioners to restore and keep their patients in health. Preventive Health focuses on the health of individuals by preventing illness and promoting health.

There is no better way to treat a disease than to avoid it in the first place. As many diseases are largely preventable. Preventive health specialists are trained health care professionals who possess core competencies in research into causes of disease, and the practice of prevention in clinical health. They apply knowledge and skills gained from the Evidence Based Health.

Longevity of the Physical Body, and how this can be achieved in the Clinical Application of Health Treatment Protocols.

Emunctology Practitioner Scope of Practice


Perform Hydropathic treatments, health promotion and wellness care interventions as a routine part of practice, by the use Hydropathy. These include advice on the 5 main tenets of the Kneipp Method of Hydropathy:

Hydrotherapy - Kneipp was able to heal many people with water
Phytotherapy – The use of botanical medicines was another of Kneipp's specialities
Exercise - Promoting health of the body through movement
Nutrition - A wholesome diet of whole grains, fruits & vegetables with limited meat
Balance - Kneipp believed that a healthy mind begot a healthy person


Neuropathy was first made part of the Hydropathic Practice by the legendary Hydropath Dr James Manby Gully.


Dr James Manby Gully published "An exposition of the symptoms, essential nature, and treatment of Neuropathy, or nervousness".


Dr. Frederick Hollick published "Neuropathy, or, The true principles of the art of healing the sick : being an explanation of the action of galvanism, electricity, and magnetism, in the cure of disease : and a comparison between their powers, and those of drugs, or medicines, of all kinds, with a view to determine their relative value and proper uses".


Dr. Frederick Hollick published “The nerves and the nervous a practical treatise on the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, with the nature and causes of all kinds of nervous diseases: showing how they may often be prevented, and how they should be treated, including also, an explanation of the new practice of neuropathy; or, the nerve cure”.


Dr Andrew P. Davies, MD, DO, DC combines Osteopathic Manipulation and Chiropractic Adjustment into Neuropathy.

"The word Chiropractic practice is simply hand practice of a peculiar character to relieve nerve pressure from the spinal nerves. Having taken full courses of instruction in Chiropractic science, and having six years’ experience in its application, and having evolved from the Chiropractic the Osteopathic and Ophthalmic sciences a system we name Neuropathy, we hesitate not to state that out system of practice embraces all there is known in Chiropractic science as taught by its originator, and all there is in Osteopathy, and all there is taught in Ophthalmology". - Dr Andrew P. Davies, MD, DO, DC in "Neurology Embracing Neuro-Ophthalmology, the New Science for the Successful Treatment of All Functional Human Ills" 1905  page 142.

Emunctolog Aim

The Emunctologist aims to have all the body emunctories functioning in their normal manner.
For this the trained Emunctologist applies in its practice the Foundations and Principles of:

80% Hydropathy Treatments
20% Neuropathy Treatments

What do Emunctologists do?

Most of the time Emunctologists work one-to-one with patients in treatment sessions lasting from a few minutes to up to an hour depending on what needs to be done.

Responsibilities include:
- Taking a detailed Health History
- Carrying out a physical examination using standard Health Care Procedures
- Forming an evaluation based on the history and examination
- Explaining this to the patient
- Planning a course of care in partnership with the patient
- Carrying out any Hydropathy treatments seemed necessary, which may include any manual (Osteopathic Manipulation or Chiropractic Adjustment) or other treatments.
- Keeping accurate clinical records
- Liaising and referring with other health practitioners when the matter is either:

1. Beyond their experience or skills,
2. Surgical or,
3. Out of their scope of practice.

The Specificity of Emunctology

The specificity of Emunctology can be illustrated by the commonsense approach in treatment to the so-called Sciatica condition.
Sciatica can be caused by mainly 2 ways or manners:
1 - From a musculoskeletal source where pain is felt on the lumbar region and leg.
2 - From a colonic inflammation source, where pain is felt irradiating from the hips area and leg.
An Emunctologist would treat the Musculoskeletal sciatica with Chiropractic Adjustment Treatment and the Colonic Inflammation sciatica with Hydropathic Treatment.

Concerning Allopathic Medicine

1. "The cause of most disease is in the poisonous drugs physicians superstitiously give in order to effect a cure." - Charles E. Page, M.D.

2. "Medicines are of subordinate importance because of their very nature they can only work symptomatically." - Hans Kusche, M.D.

3. "If all the medicine in the world were thrown into the sea, it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity" - O.W. Holmes, (Prof. of Med. Harvard University)

4. "Drug medications consists in employing, as remedies for disease, those things which produce disease in well persons. Its materia medica is simply a lot of drugs or chemicals or dye-stuffs in a word poisons. All are incompatible with vital matter; all produce disease when brought in contact in any manner with the living; all are poisons." - R.T. Trail, M.D., in a two and one half hour lecture to members of congress and the medical profession, delivered at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.

5. "Every drug increases and complicates the patients condition." - Robert Henderson, M.D.

6. "Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature's protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time." - Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.

7. "The greatest part of all chronic disease is created by the suppression of acute disease by drug poisoning." - Henry Lindlahr, M.D.

8. "Every educated physician knows that most diseases are not appreciably helped by medicine." - Richard C. Cabot, M.D. (Mass. Gen. Hospital)

9. "Medicine is only palliative, for back of disease lies the cause, and this cause no drug can reach." - Wier Mitchel, M.D.

10. "The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the disease and once from the medicine." - William Osler, M.D.

11. "Medical practice has neither philosophy nor common sense to recommend it. In sickness the body is already loaded with impurities. By taking drug - medicines more impurities are added, thereby the case is further embarrassed and harder to cure." - Elmer Lee, M.D., Past Vice President, Academy of Medicine.

12. "Our figures show approximately four and one half million hospital admissions annually due to the adverse reactions to drugs. Further, the average hospital patient has as much as thirty percent chance, depending how long he is in, of doubling his stay due to adverse drug reactions." - Milton Silverman, M.D. (Professor of Pharmacology, University of California)

13. "Why would a patient swallow a poison because he is ill, or take that which would make a well man sick." - L.F. Kebler, M.D.

14. "What hope is there for medical science to ever become a true science when the entire structure of medical knowledge is built around the idea that there is an entity called disease which can be expelled when the right drug is found?" - Dr John H. Tilden, M.D.

15. "The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and medicines, is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be abandoned." - Charles Armbruster, M. D.

16. "We are prone to thinking of drug abuse in terms of the male population and illicit drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and marijuana. It may surprise you to learn that a greater problem exists with millions of women dependent on legal prescription drugs." - Robert Mendelsohn, M.D

17. "The commonly prescribed drug therapies do not treat an underlying cause of disease. If you don’t know what the underlying cause of an illness is, then how can you implement a treatment regimen? " - Dr. David Brownstein, M.D.
