ABSTRACT

The author gives a comprehensive history of heliotherapy and then discusses its application. The various forms of tuberculosis that are benefited by this treatment are well described and may be summed up by the author's axiom that all local forms of tuberculosis justify heliotherapy as treatment, even if the lesions are multiple, with the exception of pulmonary tuberculosis. In the treatment for rickets, Alfred Hess' methods are followed, and due credit is given. Short space is given to the value of sunlight to debilitated infants, overweight infants, infants with asthma and those with chronic conditions of the skin. The second part of the book deals with sunlight and fresh air education. It is profusely illustrated and is a beautiful exposition of the excellent work done in the outdoor schools. The author, as president of the National Committee on Fresh Air Schools, knows his subject. The final part deals with actinotherapy
