An excerpt from a review in The Dublin Journal of Medical Science,Volume 101, published in 1896.
The rarity of arsenical springs, and their value in the treatment of certain classes of disease, give special interest to this tract. There is, if we remember aright, a mineral water containing arsenic in England, but it has not been utilized for therapeutical purposes. In France several springs-at Mont Dore, La Malou, Vals, Vichy, Plombieres, St. Nectaire-have traces of arsenic in their composition; but the spring of Choussy-Perriere at La Bourboule is an arsenical water. Its characteristic is a high percentage of the sodium arsenate and sodium chloride, with a small amount of iron.
This copious spring-discharging 23,310 litres in the hour-has a constant temperature of 60° C. Its composition per litre, as analysed by MM. Bouis and Lefort in 1878, is as follows:-Sodium arseniate, 0.02847 "(equal to 7 milligrammes of arsenic"); free carbonic acid, 0.0518; sodium chloride, 2.8406; potassium chloride, 0.1623; magnesium chloride, 0.0320; sodium bicarbonate, 2.890; sodium sulphate, 0.2084; "bicarbonate of lime," 0.1905; ferric oxide, 0.021; silicic acid, 0.1200; with traces of lithium chloride, manganese and aluminium.
The water of this spring is carefully bottled for export; but its good effects will be more surely produced on the spot, where internal administration is combined with baths. These are taken at a temperature of 35° C, and, as a general rule, continued for half an hour at a time.
For a list of the diseases likely (or certain) to be benefited by the use of the arsenical water of La Bourboule, we must refer our readers to Dr. Brown's pamphlet. It seems to include most of the diseases to which flesh is heir; and, perhaps, a grain or two of sodium chloride may be taken with the author's sanguine description. The temperature and composition of the water, however, will suggest to the practitioner cases in which the spring may be recommended with prospect of favourable results.
In clear, easy-to-grasp language, the author covers many of the topics that you will need to know in order to launch and run a successful business venture.
A mother knows when something is wrong with her child. If the problem is physical, she takes the child to a doctor. But if the problem is a misunderstanding of her child's mind, where does she turn for help?
This is Ben's story.
He was a happy, healthy boy -- a mother's dream come true. Yet by the age of three, Ben's development was significantly delayed: He couldn't make sense of the simplest phrases, and he still hadn't started talking. When Karen Foli finally took her son, Ben, to a speech and hearing clinic, she was told that he was "probably retarded and perhaps autistic." But Karen knew that Ben was highly perceptive, even frustrated by his inability to communicate. Trusting her "mother's intuition," Karen set out on a journey to learn the truth about her son's condition....and what she found was APD.
A person with auditory processing disorder receives jumbled and distorted sounds. But the ability to hear is usually normal. Even though it affects millions of Americans, APD can be difficult to diagnose and challenging to treat. Through years of research, and personal interviews, Karen Foli learned everything she needed to know about APD in order to help her son achieve the greatest gift of all: communication. "Like Sound Through Water" is her story -- winning, inspiring, and true.
