Disturbances of the Heart: The Resort Treatment of Chronic Heart Disease

JAMA. 2013;310(19):2104. doi:10.1001/jama.2013.5419

Originally Published January 11, 1913 | JAMA. 1913;60(2):124-127.

In line with the continued growing popularity of special resorts and special cures for different types of disease, resort or sanatorium treatment for chronic heart disease has grown to considerable popularity during the last twenty years or more. The most popular of these resorts owe their success to the personality of the physicians, who have made heart disease a life study.

Perhaps the most noted of these resorts for the cure of heart disease is that at Bad Nauheim, Germany, which was inaugurated by Dr. August Schott and Prof. Theodore Schott, and is now conducted by the latter, Dr August Schott having died about twelve years ago. Hundreds of patients and many physicians have testified to the value and benefit of the treatment carried out at this institution.
