Special And Systematic Exercises

For those of us who are not fortunate enough to get our exercise out-of-doors in the form of play, there are many sets of exercises designed to call every muscle into activity which can be performed in the home, without the aid of apparatus. Such exercises have an advantage over games and sports which make […]

The Skin And Its Function

The significance of soap and water and a clean skin for a long life and a healthy one, can only be appreciated if the structure and the functions of the skin are understood. Strangely enough and it is to be regretted in spite of the importance of the skin our knowledge of dermatology is far […]

Bathing And Its Importance To The Body

WE ALL probably judge one another, both consciously and subconsciously, more by the condition of our skin than by anything else. A clear, clean skin is usually indicative of a healthy body and its implications of right living habits, self respect, social mindedness and a keen, alert mind. Moreover, all of us, whether man or […]

Combination Lung And Muscle Exercises

The exercises which we have just described are designed for the purpose of exercising the lungs only, although to be sure some of them also exercise external or skeletal muscles other than those of the chest and diaphragm which are exercised in any type of lung exercise.

B. L. Cascade is very simple to use as simple in its operation as it is effective in its results. However, one […]

Mechanically Acting Cathartics

First of all, let us consider bran, popularly called a “food” laxative. While it was believed for a time to have a chemical action, it has now been established that its action is mechanical. It increases the bulk of the intestinal contents and by reason of the spicate shape of its particles irritates the nerve […]

Chemically Acting Cathartics

Of all the remedies for intestinal ailments having a chemical action, we all would perhaps recall first, that old family standby, castor oil, and we would recall it with a shudder. Children of this generation certainly don’t know how fortunate they are! Castor oil is absorbed principally by the small intestines and therefore its action […]
