Cleopatra’s Pool / Hierapolis
natural cures
Image by Nickmard Khoey Historical Archive
Cleopatra and Mark Antony visited Hierapolis and swam in this pool on their honeymoon. Back then this pool was part of an elaborate bathing complex fed by natural spring water. Since then the columns (Ionic) have collapsed (Earthquake in the 7th century ACE) but the pool and spring remain leaving this amazing pool full of collapsed columns. You can still swim here to this day.

The water in the thermal pool is 36-57 C°, pH value is 5,8 and radon value is 1480 pCi/l. Spa water has its inside bicarbonate, sulphate, carbon dioxide, partly with iron and radioactive combination. And also, the water in this spring is suitable for taking shower and drinking cures, 2430 MG/liter melt metal value.

Apologies for the relfections. I dropped and smashed my polarizer the day before.

DANGEROUS POWDERS Under this head may be mentioned a large variety ofpowders and tablets recommended as a cure for head-ache, catarrh, depression, etc. In placing these goods uponthe market, they are represented as containing a harmlesscombination of mild ingredients, whereas their supposedvirtue lies chiefly in the presence, in dangerous quantities,of such powerful and demoralizing poisons as cocaine,opium, or acetanilide. These are the worst sort of patentmedicines, the most deceptive in their character, and themost deadly in their effects. BETTER REMEDIES Drug medication is a curse. Within our reach are betterremedies than these. Nature will respond to Gods reme-dies. Pure air, pure water, exercise, rest, and many othernatural curative agencies are within our reach.

HOME TREATMENT Many little ailments and minor diseases can be treatedsuccessfully in the home without the aid or advice of atrained nurse or physician. The extent of such home treat-ments and their success depend upon the knowledge themembers of a family may possess of the use of rationalremedies. It is well worth while to become intelligent inthis home-nursing art, for it often saves the trouble andexpense of calling a physician. Besides, if the illness isnot serious, the patient may be quite as well off in thehands of a good home nurse as in the hands of a doctor. WHEN TO CALL A DOCTOR An ignorant or unscrupulous doctor should never becalled. The services of the best physician procurable shouldbe secured whenever symptoms of serious diseases appearwhich can not be treated intelligently without professionaladvice. If some member of the family is skilled in giving treat-ments, most up-to-date physicians will cooperate with thefamily by prescribing simple, natural treatments, if theyar

The flowering has come and gone for another year. . . . the leave vary in form–but I love the symmetry of this one.

Interesting:
"Bloodroot is one of many plants whose seeds are spread by ants, a process called myrmecochory. The seeds have a fleshy organ called an elaiosome that attracts ants. The ants take the seeds to their nest, where they eat the elaiosomes, and put the seeds in their nest debris, where they are protected until they germinate. They also get the added bonus of growing in a medium made richer by the ant nest debris."

Shibu Onsen, Yamanouchi, Nagano Prefecture

Image by David McKelvey
Shibu Onsen is a historic and attractive hot spring town in Yamanouchi, which has retained a traditional atmosphere. Nestled in a small valley, Shibu Onsen is spread out on a gentle slope beside the Yokoyugawa River, with Yudanaka Onsen located below and the Jigokudani Monkey Park above.

During its long history, the area has been visited for its hot spring water by a lot of people, including priests, samurai and poets. Some of the ryokan (Japanese style inns) that line Shibu’s narrow streets, date back over 400 years, adding greatly to Shibu’s atmosphere. Guests of the ryokan are encouraged to take a stroll around town in the traditional onsen clothing of yukata robes and geta sandals.

One incentive to walk around the town is to make use of the public bath houses, of which there are nine. The public baths are locked and, except for one, only accessible to locals and overnight guests, who are provided with a master key by their ryokan. The bath houses are small buildings, divided into a women’s side and a men’s side, and the baths themselves are quite simple. The bath houses are numbered, but also have special names and cure different ailments. Source: www.japan-guide.com

Yamanouchi is a municipality in northern Nagano Prefecture with a variety of tourist attractions. The area’s Jigokudani Monkey Park draws many visitors because of its unique wild monkeys, who bathe in the park’s natural hot springs. The monkeys are not the only ones enjoying the water, as the nearby towns of Shibu Onsen and Yudanaka Onsen are centered around the bathing experience.

The largest ski resort in Japan, Shiga Kogen, is also located within Yamanouchi. One single ticket gives skiers and snowboarders access to dozens of runs, some of which hosted events during the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics. Shiga Kogen and other parts of Yamanouchi are part of the Joshinetsu Kogen National Park, which offers hiking and other outdoor activities when there is no snow on the hills.

Of Plenty and Paucity: Civil War Medicines and Their Makers Exhibit

Image by W&M Libraries
Shown here is an image from the exhibit "Of Plenty and Paucity: Civil War Medicines and Their Makers," on display in the Nancy Marshall Gallery just outside the Special Collections Research Center on the first floor of Swem Library at the College of William & Mary. This exhibit is part of "From Fights to Rights: The Long Road to a More Perfect Union," Swem Library’s project to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. The exhibit is on display from October 28, 2011 through April 16, 2012.

The following is a transcription of the label text presented in this exhibit.

Apothecary scales, circa 1860s

The pharmacist would weigh out the ingredients on
apothecary scales, using the appropriate weights, and mix the ingredients as instructed. These scales are hand-held and would typically have been used in the field. Sometimes, the doctor only included the main ingredients and left it to the pharmacist to
determine what diluting agents or excipients to use.

Orders of the Medical Department, C.S.A.
Petersburg, Virginia, 1862-1863

Recognizing the supply issues early in the War, the
Confederate medical department ordered stewards to purchase botanical medical supplies locally, as seen in the price list for herbs from the records of the Confederate hospital at Petersburg.

Richard Morgan to Celia Morgan
Camp Butler, Springfield, Illnois, 1865

Pharmacists could do their work in a variety of locations from camps and hospitals to the field. Swem Library has a small number of papers relating to Richard Morgan, a Union apothecary at the post hospital at Camp Butler. In an 1865 letter to his estranged wife Celia, he described filling prescriptions all day and examining highly-contagious patients. He also boasted of having the keys to the liquor cabinet, a fact unlikely to amuse Celia, who had left him because of his drinking. Alcohol was a key ingredient in liquid medicines.

Richard and Celia Morgan Papers, Mss. 2010.237

Mortar and pestle, circa 1860s

Stewards used large metal mortars and pestles to pound chopped, dried herbs or vegetables used for medicines into smaller particles. They used smaller porcelain mortars and pestles to create and mix powders.

Prescription ledger, 1863-1864

This prescription ledger belonged to Captain Edward Restieaux, a Boston druggist who was
assistant quartermaster of the 2nd Division of the 5th Army Corps in Washington. The record he kept for himself in the ledger did not include all the parts of a prescription.

Quinine: The Miracle Drug

Quinine sulfate, made from a derivate of the bark of the
cinchona tree, was probably the favorite drug of Civil War surgeons. They used it to treat a great variety of ailments from fevers to stomachaches to lack of energy.

Cinchona did not grow in the United States, which in the 19th century imported supplies of the bark from Peru. Dogwood and other barks proved ineffective
substitutes, and Confederate soldiers died from malaria at much greater rates than Union soldiers.

Most soldiers accepted quinine as a treatment and
energizer. Researchers later discovered that quinine is not nearly as effective as was commonly believed during the Civil War. It is, however, useful in treating malaria, a problem that plagued soldiers serving in the swamps and lowlands of the South.

Reading a Prescription

A complete prescription would include:
1.Rx: an abbreviation of the Latin for recipe
2.In Latin, a list of ingredients (often abbreviated) and the quantities of each, using the apothecary measures followed by lower-case Roman numerals:
Joseph Janvier Woodward

The Hospital Steward’s Manual
Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1862, 280
3.In Latin, directions for how to mix together the
ingredients and prepare them for the patient
4.In English, directions for how the patient should take the prescription

Resources of the Southern Fields and Forests
Richmond, Virginia: West and Johnson, 1863

The Confederate Surgeon-General’s office
produced Resources of the Southern Fields and Forests to guide surgeons and stewards in making the best use possible of the South’s natural resources.

New York, New York, 1864

The North usually had ample supplies of quinine, as seen in the list of supplies issued at the Union depot at Norfolk in 1863.

Civil War Collection, Mss. 39.1 C76

Southern Shortages

Shortages of drugs plagued Confederate stewards. The United States traditionally had imported some key drugs, including opium and quinine. The Union blockade of Southern seaports and efforts to prevent overland smuggling caused severe shortages of these drugs in the South by late 1863. Even for drugs that the South was able to produce, transportation and communication problems meant that stewards in Confederate hospitals and military units frequently could not obtain what they needed.

Despite the Confederate pharmacists’ best efforts, drug
shortages were a severe problem during the later years of the War. No adequate substitute based on local botanicals was found for many drugs. However, some of the local substitutes did treat symptoms, even if they did not cure the underlying diseases.

Pa amb Sobrassada
natural cures
Image by Juan Antonio Capó
Sobrassada
La sobrasada (del mallorquín sobrassada) es un embutido crudo curado, elaborado a partir de carnes seleccionadas del cerdo, condimentadas con sal, pimentón y pimienta negra. Se embute en tripa y presenta una lenta maduración.
Este producto es tradicional de Mallorca y las Islas Baleares, y está protegido con el sello de Indicación Geográfica. En la cocina mallorquina tradicional, la sobrasada suele consumirse el mismo día de matanza o poco después: tostada en invierno, o untada en pan y cruda en verano. Aunque pueden durar varios años en un lugar seco, lo habitual es consumir la longaniza durante el primer invierno, la sobrasada en verano, y las más grandes cuando se hace la matanza del año siguiente.
Historia
Este producto surge a partir de la necesidad de guardar los alimentos durante largos periodos de tiempo, utilizando las técnicas del salado para embutir carne picada. El origen de su nombre se encuentra en Sicilia, donde se practicaba una técnica conocida como sopressa, que significa "picado", aplicado a la carne para embutir. De esta zona, pasó a la península Ibérica gracias al comercio marítimo, y de Valencia se expandió hasta Mallorca, donde ve su mayor desarrollo a partir del siglo XVI.
Aunque en las primeras sobrasadas se prima el cerdo, al poco tiempo se introduce el uso de pimentón como signo distintivo para la conservación de los alimentos, ya que la carne adquiere su color rojo característico. Con el paso del tiempo el proceso de elaboración se perfecciona, y en 1993 el Gobierno balear reconoce la Denominación Específica para la sobrasada mallorquina. En 1996, la Unión Europea le otorga el sello de Indicación Geográfica.
Ingredientes
Cada familia y pueblo elaboraba su propia receta en base a sus costumbres y peculiaridades al ser un producto de matanza. Sin embargo, existen unas características específicas reguladas por la Denominación Específica mallorquina: un 60% de carne magra por un 30%-40% de tocino, 20-30 gramos de sal por kilo de pasta, 60 gramos de pimentón por kilo, y pimienta picante u otras especias al gusto de cada uno. Cuando es más grasa, suele tener más pimentón. El alimento es natural, por lo que la Denominación de origen prohibe expresamente el uso de colorantes.
Elaboración
El proceso consta de dos fases diferenciadas. En la primera se elabora el propio embutido, que consta de las etapas de picado de la carne de cerdo, mezclada con los otros ingredientes y el embutido en las tripas. En la segunda, se produce la maduración y desecado del producto.
El picado tradicional se hacía a mano pero con la mejora de la producción se realiza mecánicamente, con una máquina trituradora programada para lograr partículas inferiores a los 6 milímetros. Después, la carne es sazonada y se le añaden las especias. La masa se embute en las tripas, y se somete a un proceso de curación en los secaderos.
Una vez finalizado, la sobrasada se presenta en forma de longaniza con una textura untuosa. En relación a las características de la tripa o el envase utilizado se distinguen las siguientes presentaciones de Sobrasada de Mallorca: longaniza, rizada, semirizada, cular, bufeta, bisbe, poltrú o tarrina.
====================================
Sobrassada
Sobrassada is a raw, cured sausage from the Balearic Islands made with ground pork, paprika and salt and other spices. Sobrassada, along with botifarró are traditional Majorcan sausage meat products prepared in the laborious but festive rites that still mark the autumn and winter pig slaughter in Majorca. The chemical principle that makes sobrassada is the dehydration of meat under certain weather conditions (high humidity and mild cold) which are typical of the late Majorcan autumn.
Ingredients and varieties
Sobrassada is made with a choice of pork loin, pork bacon (xuia), minced and mixed with paprika, salt and (in modern times) black pepper. Some makers also add cayenne pepper to the mixture and market it as picant, hot. Then the mixture is put into a pork intestine, and hung from a pole for some weeks until it is cured. The string which is tied around the intestine can be used to differentiate between the hot and dolç (literally "sweet", though in this case meaning "not spicy") varieties, the red or red and white string being the hot one.
Small, thin sobrassadas are called llonganissa, and are made from the small intestine. Bigger and thicker ones are called cular or pultrums, and the largest type are huge pork bladders called bufetes.
Sobrassada outside the Balearic islands
Four geographical areas in the Mediterranean, apart from the Balearic islands, have close links to sobrassada for different reasons:
1.- In colonial Algeria, sobrassada was part of the pied-noir cuisine and extremely popular. The French version was named soubressade. Upon the independence and re-islamisation of the country this pork product became less and less important and can today only be found in continental France in butcher shops run by pied-noirs.
2.- In Catalonia, due to cultural links with the Balearic islands, sobrassada is sometimes found together with other autochthonous pork products. The eastern Pyrenees are known for a mountain version of sobrassada.
3.- The village of Tàrbena, in the province of Alicante, was re-populated after the expulsion of the Moriscos with colonists from Majorca who brought along several traditions from the island, including their own variant of the Catalan language and foods such as the sobrassada, which is still being made there in the same way.
4.- In the island of Sicily, either a predecessor or a contemporary product is found under the name sopressada at least since the 15th century. There is debate over exactly where the product originated.
Short history of sobrassada and Mallorquin penchant for pork
Other pork products typical from the cuisine of Mallorca are camaïot, veria negra and xuia (pancetta).
After centuries of Muslim (non-pork) culture, Mallorca quickly returned to pork consumption in the Middle Age, with the key ingredient paprika added after the discovery of America in the 15th century. Sobrassada is thought to have originated and expanded, as a culinary concept, in the Catalan-controlled Western Mediterranean (Sicily, Balearic Islands, Sardinia) after the 14th century, as different forms of the same product persist in this region still today.
In a traditional Mediterranean diet, containing little meat, as Mallorca had until the 1950s, sobrassada and its affiliated pork sausages were usually the main and exclusive pork meat source for Mallorquins. Larger meat cuts like pork or lamb roasts, pork steaks or beef cuts were largely a festive dish, or restricted to the well-off. Even today dishes such as porcella rostida, a whole roasted suckling pig, are only served on special occasions.

THE URGENCY OF NOW: VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN AND THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER — A KEYNOTE CONVERSATION
Under Vice President Biden’s leadership, the White House Cancer Moonshot Task Force catalyzed novel, innovative and impactful collaborations among twenty government agencies, departments and White House offices and over seventy private sector entities designed to achieve a decade’s worth of progress in five years in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. He helped lead the effort to pass the 21st Century Cures Act that provides an additional .8 billion investment over seven years for the Cancer Moonshot’s scientific priorities.
Now, after more than 40 years of public service, Vice President Biden has recommitted himself to inject a sense of urgency into our cancer research enterprise and to reimagine how the government, academia, non-profits and the private sector can better organize their resources and systems to collaborate to take on cancer. In a 1-on-1 interview, Vice President Biden sits down with Dr. David Agus to talk about the progress made through the Cancer Moonshot and the strategy for the work ahead, including how we must change the culture in the fight to end cancer.

"Pink Heals Tour Picks Up Donated Firetruck in Texas

"Dave Graybill, a firefighter from Arizona, started the Pink Heals Tour in 2007 to inspire men to support the women in their community who are battling cancer. He travels the country in a pink fire engine raising money and spreading cancer awareness. Last week, Graybill went to Tyler, Texas to pick up his sixth truck, a 1969 fire truck that will join his Pink fleet, according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

During the ceremony, Tyler firefighters announced that ,220 in locally raised donations would be allocated to six charities, ,055 would be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in Tyler; ,055 to the American Cancer Society; ,250 to the East Texas Medical Center Foundation for its "Pink Ribbon Getaway" and the "Great Getaway" programs; ,250 to the Trinity Mother Frances Health System Foundation for its "Hopeful Journey" and genetic testing programs; 0 to the Cancer Foundation for Life’s "Fit Steps for Life" program; and 0 to the "Pink Heals Tour", Guardians of the Ribbon. The remaining ,610 will be used to start Tyler Firefighters CARE (Cancer Awareness and Relief Effort) fund to help employees and their family members diagnosed with cancer, according to the newspaper.

This was the second truck donated to the tour from Tyler. Last October, the city gave Graybill a truck named "Tonya" after the wife of Tyler firefighter Wes Malcomb, who died of cancer, according to KYTX. This truck, donated by Sam and Connie Greenberg is being named Chance, after a 5-year old St. Louis boy, according to the paper. Before this, all the other trucks were named after women who have battled cancer.

"Chance, I met on the tour last year and he has a brain tumor behind his eyes so he’s blind after his treatments," Graybill told KYTX. "I’ve got to have a truck for children’s cancer," he added. Graybill and Chance the truck headed back to Arizona. This is a post from Graybill on the Pink Heals Facebook Page "We are home with ‘Chance’. Although we broke down twice and needed to be towed each time, it was a great experience. We pushed ‘Chance’ to the limit, he was a little shy at first, threw a few temper tantrums but what a great truck!!!! Can’t wait to get ‘Chance’ all painted up and drive him across the country, but most importantly to take the real Chance for a ride on his very own fire truck."

Noon Meal near Void [45] We received our orders to move forward on the 4th of October. The 92nd Divi-sion succeeded the 82nd in the town billets and we packed up for the new field of work.There was a little difficulty just before we left as the new division appeared about toappropriate our occupied billets. Bloodshed was missed by a little diplomacy and weslept the last night in our home of the past ten days. It was but a short run to ournew billet, a tent pitched beyond Neuvilly, in a region which was known only to ad-vanced posts before the advance of the week before. It marked the entrance upon ourlast front activity. It was to be the toughest proposition we had yet tackled, and wewere to come out of the tas-k sure of ourselves and of the strength of our section.

HE successful issue of the attack at St. Mihiel had stamped theAmericans as capable of performing a distinctive part in the newoperations of the Allied Armies. To attack on as many fronts aspossible at one time was the secret of victory. The British in thenorth were wearing away the defence at Cambrai, and the Frenchwere advancing steadily further south. It was for the Americansto pierce the Argonne Forest on the left of Verdun and, once outof the ravines and woods south of Grandpre, to cut the railroadconnections at Mezieres and Sedan.

The country was replete with natural defences whose capture wouldrequire the presence of troops never at the disposal of the allied commanders. The forc-ing of the valley of the Aire was thus logically an American task. We were a new army,we

Tlie examiner sits on the side of tlie bed and the arm lies between the widely-separated thighs, sothat the examination is made from directly in front of the pelvis. 5. When an absolutely sterile covering for the hands is desired, it is easily se-cured by boiling the gloves immediately before use. AVOID UNNECESSARY EXPOSURE. In all the steps of the examination and in all examinations and treatments,avoid exposing the patient any more than is necessary. Do not let your study ofthe clinical and scientific features of the case so preoccupy your mind that youneglect this. OTHER POINTS IN THE EXAMINATION 107 The carelessness manifested in this respect by some physicians is extremelyreprehensible. This careless disregard of the natural modesty of the patient isseen both in private work and in clinic work but especially in the latter, where it isjust as reprehensible as in the for
