Charles E. Page, M.D.


Charles Edward Page was an American physician, hydrotherapist, natural hygiene advocate, and anti-vaccinationist. He was an early advocate of therapeutic fasting and abandoned the drugging practice for Hygiene and its principles. 

Dr. Page witnessed many outbreaks of typhus, various fevers, and pneumonia, and his extensive writings describe the human body’s ability to heal. Raising a large family, Dr. Page understood the importance of guiding children to health and wellness. His writings, describing how to raise healthy children, were successfully summarized in his book How to Feed the Baby, A Nursery Guide.

Through his work, he became a cornerstone of the Natural Hygiene movement, which provided the foundational base of the National Health Association as we know it today.

“What are commonly called diseases and the common practice used by allopathic doctors, of ‘controlling the symptoms with drugs,’ is like answering the cries and gesticulations of a drowning man with a knock on the head.”
