nursenyra has been researching water cures and the curiously named Dr Lust, who appears to be rather xenophobic, has this to say about hot baths
(typical bathroom at the gimcrack)
‘The Japs make cleanliness of body the first of all virtues. These brown brothers look in astonishment at any stranger that neglects to take at least one bath a day. Some people believe that hot baths predispose one to cold but it is not the case. This type of bath produces a temporary paralysis of surface circulation and prevents contraction of the capillaries. It is proved by the fact that the Japs run naked through the streets after bathing and suffer no ill effects. A custom of the Japs which seems repugnant to Occidentals is the promiscuous habit of communal bathing. Yet there is no suggestion of indecency which is attributed to the child-mindedness of these interesting people.
still on the subject of water, Precious Prill Beads are a strange and mystifying water additive touted by The Life Enthusiasts.
“Placing common water in contact with Precious Prills causes a remarkable thinning of that water. The resultant liquid is known in nature as “Dew”. Dew is about half the thickness of common water.
The water made when Precious Prills comes in contact with common water is a wonderful moisturizing liquid which has the power to reduce pain. Precious Prills were designed to make water wetter.
Put two gallons of Prill water into a bath and fill the rest with hot water for an exquisite soak and rejuvenation. When you drain the tub, the waste water goes into the water system to begin the process of transforming the water in your area. Prills produce a water that is de-clustered to virtually single molecules of water that have the hydrogen and oxygen atoms bound extremely close and it is superior to the “clustered water” that you may have worked with before.
One problem is chlorine in tap water is heavier than air, so the Prills only push chlorine to the top and it sits there until you blow or fan it off. The lid has to be off the jar all the time for the chlorine to escape. If you don’t have time to blow and fan your Prill Water, get a carbon filter for the chlorine.
Precious Prill treated water is very thin and remarkably heavy, which can be demonstrated with a hydrometer. It is at least as good as the water that it was made from, which we all know is perfectly safe because the city experts say it is.
