INITIS - Congestion of the Connective Tissues


This is a reprint of the 1916 book by Dr Andrea Rabagliati of his book INITIS. Nutrition and Exercises.

The book is a delightful mix of the scientific and the esoteric, containing his unique viewpoints on the body and its many ailments. Rabagliati was of the opinion that many of the conditions that afflicted his patients had come about by a congestion of the body’s connective tissue and could be alleviated by changes in diet coupled with simple self-exercises involving massage and movement.  

His work is as valuable today as it was at the beginning of the 1900’s. Indeed we are now seeing the results of overeating in a population that is increasing beset with health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and arthritis.

It is time once again to look at the probable causes of these conditions and take more than a leaf from Dr. Rabagliati’s book which is produced here in its original form with original photographs of his self-help exercises.
