New York:: The Lowrey-Marden Corporation, 1921., 1921. Small 8vo. 117,  pp. Ads. Blue gilt-stamped cloth; covers freckled. Some pencil marginalia pages 26, 52, 38, 80. Alsaker published many of his "miracle health books' under a pseudonym, Frank E. Morrison before opting to use his name. Although he was a medical doctor, he excoriated the medical establishment so harshly that a 1921 JAMA article (volume 77, No. 24 pp. 1909-1910) proclaimed: "the average reader might well reach the conclusion that all other physicians, except Alsaker, are either fools or rogues, and that from Alsaker alone flows the only pure, unadulterated 100 per cent medical knowledge." Alsaker argues that organic diet and exercise, alone, are sufficient for good health, and that medicines "are a delusion and a snare" (p.74). An excellent example of turn-of-the-century anti-medicine medicine.
