A Treatise on the Mineral Waters of Vichy : For the Use of Practitioners (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Treatise on the Mineral Waters of Vichy: For the Use of Practitioners It is with very great pleasure that I have been asked by Dr. Cota/r to write a few lines of introduction to his work on treatment by the mineral waters of Vichy. Of the various mineral waters seen in an ordinary house, probably none are more common than are the waters of Vichy, especially the Célestins. It is strange, however, that often one finds the busy English practitioner of medicine rather regarding the waters of Vichy as a pleasant beverage, and not so much as a serious method of treatment of disease. The waters of Carlsbad and other German Spas, as a medical means of treatment, are thoroughly appreciated by our British confre'res. It is only by reading a book like the admirable one now brought forward by Dr. Cotar that one can readily realise the great value of a systematic course of mineral-water treatment as carried out at Vichy, in the various medical cases where it is applicable. The book deals with the subject in a truly scientific manner, and there is a most valuable chapter showing the reasons why mineral waters are, from a physiological point of view, a proper method of treatment. I feel sure that the work will be found of value to medical men, as giving them a complete résumé of the whole treatment of disease, by Vichy waters in particular, as well as by mineral waters in general.
