The Maine
An artful dialogue about the wonders of the state.

Groaner

GROANER: A foghorn with a prolonged moan and only one tone. A two-toned horn, listed on charts as a diaphone, is called a grunter.

Tuesday 207: Looking & Feeling

“What makes treatment with water so unique is that it is always as available as the nearest running water. Moreover, water therapy is painless, and hundreds of different health problems can be treated immediately, naturally, and at little or no cost. Water therapy can stop a cold before it starts, help overcome a sore throat, generate energy, relieve pain, vanquish nervousness, help induce sleep, awaken a fogged brain, reestablish internal good health, and even help us to feel sexier; in short, it can restore and tone the body. Water therapy creates circulation and overcomes sluggishness; it also unblocks an energy barrier so that the body can function in a freer and normal fashion. By acting to detoxify — that is, to rid the body of any accumulated poisons or toxins that may be the start of disease, or linger after a disease — water therapy increases our body’s natural defense mechanisms.”

Dian Dincin Buchman, Ph.D. in The Complete Book Of Water Healing
