Welcome to The Nature Cure Kingston File Website.

This is the Unofficial Website of the Incorporated Society Of Registered Naturopaths (ISRN). The original purpose of this website was to provide information about the Kingston Nature Cure movement, the Thomson Kingston Publications and to offer, through the Kingston Files, an unofficial forum for discussion in greater depth about Nature Cure.

The concept was the vision of Alec Milne – practitioner, co-director of the Kingston Clinic in Edinburgh and author – who passed away at home in his 90th year in 2010.  It is a testament to his dedication and enthusiasm for the Nature Cure way of life that so many people were moved to write and you can read the contributions from practitioners and patients and other interested parties in the Files section. This site now serves as a snap shot of Nature Cure in the first decade of the 21st century – one hundred years after James C Thomson established his first practice in Edinburgh.


Nature Cure related events are organised from time to time and can be found on the Nature Cure in Scotland website.

Building on the success of our retreat at Wiston Lodge last September we are holding a second event this year at a different venue. Set in its own grounds this beautifully appointed house will offer peace and tranquility for our guests as well as forestry and riverside walks on the doorstep. There will be fully qualified members of the Incorporated Society of Registered Naturopaths on hand to offer support and advice in one-to-one sessions. Food will be vegetarian and organic. Numbers are limited to 12 so apply soon to avoid disappointment.
