Clothing II

"Perfect health depends upon perfect circulation."

Special attention should be given to the extremities, that they may be as thoroughly clothed as the chest, and the region over the heart, where is the greatest amount of heat. The limbs were not formed by our Creator to endure exposure, as was the face. The Lord provided the face with immense circulation, because it must be exposed. He provided, also, large veins and nerves for the limbs and feet, to contain a large amount of the current of human life, that the limbs might be uniformly as warm as the body.

There is but one woman in a thousand who clothes her limbs as she should. Chilled extremities were depicted as the unsuspected cause of a surprising array of ailments.

Conditions associated with chilled extremities

  • Upper airway inflammation
