Henry Lindlahr (March 1, 1862 – March 26, 1924) was the author of one of the cornerstone texts of American naturopathic medicine, Nature Cure, which includes topics about disease suppression versus elimination, hydrotherapy, and the importance of fresh air and sun bathing.

Henry Lindlahr was born March 1, 1862 in Cologne, Germany.[1] He devoted himself to healing after being helped by Father Sebastian Kneipp (1821–1897),[2][3] in Europe. He graduated from the National Medical University in Illinois.[4] In 1902, he opened his practice in Chicago. In 1914, he founded the Lindlahr Sanitarium, in Elmhurst, Illinois.[5][6] He died in Chicago on March 26, 1924.[7]
