Caption: Sebastian Kneipp (1821-1897), German priest. Kneipp was one of the founders of naturopathy, promoting hydrotherapy, herbalism, exercise, nutrition and spirituality. Kneipp claimed his hydrotherapy (short dips in the icy waters of the Danube) cured his pulmonary tuberculosis by taking. This may have been due to the stimulation of his immune system. In 1886 he wrote 'My Water Cure', which brought thousands to his ministry in Bavaria. He also developed a whole-wheat recipe called Kneipp Bread. Artwork from the 20th volume (second period of 1897) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
