Alfred W Drayson Nineteenth Century


Health, Medical Treatment

    Suggests that to 'Breathe pure air, sleep and live as far as possible in an atmosphere which contains the proper amount of oxygen, and whenever the atmosphere is vitiated, breathe quickly so as to maintain the normal supply of oxygen' has 'a great deal of common sense' and may provide an 'astonishing immunity from ill-health', and advises that 'the next time my readers have got a headache, or a toothache, or a sleepless attack, let them take long breaths and many of them, and see what will be the result'.
