    I'm trying to find information about a man, and movement, from the 19th century, maybe in Germany or maybe Russia or another European country, who advocated time outside in nature, including during winter with minimal clothing, as a treatment for many diseases. The closest I've found is Sebastian Kneipp and the Nature Cure, but I don't think that was the guy because I remember seeing a picture of the guy I'm thinking of outside in winter with no shirt on and he had a big grey beard that I don't see in any of the pictures of Kneipp.
    Guy in his 50s or 60s, barrel chested, grey beard, standing outside in the winter in some European country in the 19th century to cure disease. Anyone know who I'm talking about?

    Very interesting.

    The only famous cold thermogenesis guru I can think of is the modern day Iceman Wim Hof, a Dutchman.
