TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 18 April 1914
TAKE A HOT FOOT.BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. There Is a mode of using hot wa. ter, which is an exceedingly valuable one, according to the late Sir HI-en ry Thompson in "Diet in Relation to Age and Activity." It is the habit of taking a hot foot-bath every night before going to bed, for about ten or twelve minutes as hot as it can be borne, The effect of this on the feet, which should be immersed over' the ankle, Is to fill their vessels with blood rendered apparent by their deep red color-and this affords relief, by withdrawing it from the brain, Es. pecially after intellectual activity re sulting from public life, etc., as above referred to, also after prolong. ed study or. literary labor at night, the tranquillisng effect on the 'nor vous system is very remarkable, and ulet sleep is promoted, Let the high est temperature which can be borne be maintained for at least ten minutes by repeated small additions from the bot-water can close at hand, According to Paris statistics, out of 2,5...
