Mental disorders have natural causes and should be treated as disease.  Observed and recorded case histories, emphasized diet & climate.  Says body is an organism, and must be understood as a whole.
Picks up 4 humors theory of Empedocles: Health results from harmony of the humors: blood, bile, black bile, phlegm.
