Bassano sits in a stunning location by the River Brenta with Monte Grappa in the background. It is about 35 kilometres north east of Vicenza. The town's symbols are said to be the Palladian bridge, white asparagus, ceramics and the Grappa liqueur. If
you like to be slightly off the tourist track or prefer a more rural setting for short break or as a base for a touring holiday, Bassano is ideal.

It is often assumed that the city takes its name from the well known liqueur Grappa. However it is named after Monte Grappa. The mountain's name originates from "crapp"
or "greep", meaning crag in an ancient pre-Latin language. The name of the liqueur - which is produced in Bessano in quantity - stems from "grappolo", meaning a cluster of grapes.

Grappa liqueur has been produced in Bassano since 1779 when Bortolo Nardini bought a Grapperia on the Brenta River bank. Grappa is made from the by-products of wine
making, the seeds, stems and skins. The company is still run by members of the Nardini family.

Ponte Vecchia has become synonymous with Bassano. The bridge is first mentioned in the 11th century. The bridge has been rebuilt several times due to flooding or destruction during wars. It is still the original design by Palladio from 1569. The bridge is built of wood, making it more resilient to the fast flowing River Brenta.

There is a record of the city on St Mary's Hill from the 10th century. From the 14th to 18th century the city was under Venetian rule. It became well known for the manufacture of ceramics, wool, silk, iron and copper. The Remondini family ran one of the most up-to-date printing houses in Europe from the17th to the 19th century.

The Town Hall was first constructed in 1405. Bartolomeo Ferranci installed the present clock mechanism in 1743. The interior walls are adorned by frescoes of 120 coats of arms.

White asparagus was first produced in the 16th century after Bassano experienced a hailstorm, which destroyed the asparagus crop. The farmers dug up the part of the
plant below the earth and discovered that it was so tender and delicious that they started to grow it underground permanently.

During the First World War the Italians took a last stand against the Austrians in Monte Grappa where they entrenched themselves in tunnels and bunkers to repel the Austrian
attackers. Over 12,000 Italian and 10,000 Austrian soldiers lost their lives in the numerous battles.

During the Second World War Italian partisans hid in Monte Grappa, organizing raids on the main supply route from Germany to the German troops stationed in Italy. In 1944
the Germans took revenge by marching up the mountain behind women, children and elderly local inhabitants. Any partisans discovered or civilians suspected of assisting
partisans were killed. There were public hangings and shootings with families forced to watch.

In 1946 the Italian prime minister awarded Basssano the gold medal for military valor. Every year the city commemorates these events during September.

The Museo degli Alpini was established in 1948 in memory of the Italian Alpine Troops It is located on the eastern side of the Ponte Vecchio. You have to enter it through a cafe. Originally the collection was very small but has grown as more war relics have
been gathered together. There are many original photos, uniforms and armoury.

Museo della Cermica is near the eastern side of the Ponte Vecchio. The building was constructed as the residence of Ferrari family, owners of a local silk factory. The entrance hall is adorned with a fresco by Giorgio Anseli. There are pieces of engraved
ceramics from medieval times, Mainardi majolica pieces from the 17th and 18th century, along with modern pieces.

The Civic Musuem is one of the oldest in the Veneto region. It was built in1828 on the site of the convent of St Francis. It houses a collection of paintings by the Da Ponti family, Guariento and Magnasco, a collection of prints by the Remondini family. There is also an archaeological section and pieces by Antonio Canova.

Bassano boasts several churches. San Donato built in 1208, San Francesco, started in the mid 12th century, and the Cathedral of Holy Mary dating from the 17th century.

So, Bassano may not be the ultimate destination of your journey, but it is highly recommended to travelers and tourists who are in the Veneto Region and want to experience an authentic northern Italian river town. Put it on your travel map, why not?

Sea water tonic

Ionic Sea Water solution

The sea houses all minerals in existence in ionic solution, which is best form for absorbtion into human and animal bodies. I use a sea water solution called Dalai Iso (an iso tonic, there is also a hypertonic, which is the product Dalai Iper) distributed by Promopharma in Europe. I use it as a trace and major mineral supplement in most everyone with allergies, candida overgrowth, chronic fatigue, eczema, sinusitis, mucus membrane disturbances and anyone who tests to need the sea water solution (which is almost any sick person).

I've also used this a lot in cats, subcutaneously in cases of dehydration, as an aerosol in cats with sinus and lung problems, and directly on the skin in cases of skin problems in both cats and humans. I also use it as part of the base therapy for all sick cats. The dosage varies based on cat size, illness and kinesiological testing, but it is usually between 2 and 5 ml per day for a cat, given in food or water.

Please see the detailed info regarding sea water solution after the cnn article below.

Studies look to sea for cystic fibrosis treatment

Inhaled saline solution works where drugs failed, doctors say

By Peggy Peck
MedPageToday Managing Editor

Wednesday, January 18, 2006; Posted: 5:50 p.m. EST (22:50 GMT)

Surfers chasing waves off the coast of Australia gave researchers a clue to a cheap, effective treatment for cystic fibrosis.

Two studies published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine report that cystic fibrosis patients who inhaled a specially mixed saltwater solution at least twice a day had half as many hospitalizations for lung problems and significantly improved their ability to clear mucus from the lungs.

The patients in the studies also had marked improvement in lung function, said Dr. Scott Donaldson of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Some people mistakenly believe that this nasal spray contains a mixture of water and salt. This, however, is not the case. Salt is highly irritating to the mucus membranes and it has no anti-inflammatory or healing properties. The spray contains Isotonic Solution.

It can be used at any age: by infants, children, teenagers, adults and elderly people.

Press down the nozzle gently to release spray.

From the onset of any nasal congestion or the appearance of runny or stuffy nose, spray 4 to 6 times a day into each nostril.

Acute sinusitis: see Colds.
Chronic sinusitis: Spray 3 to 4 times a day into each nostril. Avoid milk, beer, sweets and junk foods.

Spray once into each nostril on a regular basis, morning and evening.

Spray 3 to 6 times a day as needed.

Medical treatment can be supplemented by spraying 3 to 4 times a day into each ear.

SKIN moisturization.:
For tired, dry or devitalized skin, spray on face or other parts of the body. Allow to dry.

I - If taken orally

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) First 10 days: 1 vial a day.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Following 10 days: 2 vials a day.

After that, if the skin eruptions begin to fade, continue to take 2 vials a day. Otherwise, alternate between 2 vials a day and 3 vials a day until eruptions begin to fade. If necessary, 3 vials a day may be taken. In obstinate cases of psoriasis, it is recommended that the dose be increased to 4 vials a day. To minimize the influx of toxins it is important to carefully watch the patient's diet for signs of inappropriate choices.

When the lesions have disappeared, gradually taper off the number of vials taken
until complete healing has occurred.

External application of ginkgo biloba cream to psoriasis blemishes will help fade them more rapidly.

II- If injected (subcutaneously. intravenously or intramuscularly).

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) First 2 weeks: 20 cc (2 vials) every second day.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Following 2 weeks: 30cc (3 vials) every second day.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) When the eruptions have faded: 3 vials every third day, then 2 vials every second day, then 2 vials once a week. Decrease the dose gradually until healing is complete.

Seawater Isotonic Solution is available in boxes of 30 vials and containers of one (1) liter.

Rene Quinton's shock treatment for psoriasis (subsequently used successfully by
many physicians) is as follows:

Subcutaneous administration in the retro-trochanterian area.

6 weeks of treatment. 10 ml vials:

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) First week: 3 vials every second day 3 times a week.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Second week: 5 vials every second day 3 times a week.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Third week: 7 vials every second day 3 times a week.

The improvement is spectacular, the lesions fade away without the use of standard medical treatment.

In the light of the results obtained, the dose should be adapted to the patient's
individual response as follows:

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Fourth week: 12 vials every second day 3 times a week.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Fifth week: 18 vials every second day 3 times a week.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Sixth week: 20 vials every second day 3 times a week.

Where there is mild persistence of symptoms, the initial treatment may be repeated
after a pause of 2 months. To ensure that adequate and appropriately correct nutrition is obtained, it is recommended that the patient consult a knowledgeable Health Professional (not necessarily nutritionist).

From 1952 to 1957, the French physician Jean Montfort studied over 600 clinical cases of this complaint as part of a medical team. Results of his research revealed that improvements tend to appear after the first injection as well as the third week. Dr. Jean Montfort treated his patients exclusively with Ocean Plasma without the addition of corticosteroids or antibiotics.

He emphasized the absence of iatrogenic side effects in using Ocean Plasma as well as the surprising results obtained. Many of these patients showed no signs of relapse after 20 years.

Ocean Plasma is a powerful reminalizer and is, therefore, particularly suitable in cases of bone and joint disorders. In such cases, however, it must be remembered that wear and tear on bones and joints have occurred slowly over long periods and, consequently, the remineralization process will also be gradual. Adults suffering from arthrosis or osteoporosis should consider taking the Plasma regularly over a period of 6 months to a year. An increase in bone density is observable using densitometry after only 6 months of treatment.

Growing pains in children:

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) 2 vials daily - 3 to 4 vials daily in periods of crisis

Ocean Plasma and the Seawater therapy itself constitute a valuable adjunct in the medical treatment of these diseases. While it is certainly not organ-specific, it does normalize cell electrolytes, pH values and mineral imbalances as well as increase overall vitality. Ocean Plasma has a rapid beneficial impact on the entire body system.
Therefore, it should not be discussed as a specific cancer cure but be seriously considered for its great regenerating potential.
Any therapy for degenerative diseases should always be combined with a wholesome, LIVING, RAW and saltless diet. Any cooked and processed foods would only hinder the process of healing. A competent practitioner in natural nutrition should be consulted even before starting the Seawater therapy or any other.

4 to 6 vials must be taken regularly every day over a period of many months.

In certain cases, the Plasma should be administered by injection for maximum efficiency. Injections of 30 to 60cc (3 to 6 vials) may be given every second day throughout the first two months. Advanced stages of the disease may require higher doses. Subsequent treatment, when appropriate, may be tapered off from a single injection twice a week to once a week.

Modern advances in Physiology and Molecular Biochemistry make it easier to comprehend the great similarity in mineral content of the inner environment and sea water with their common origin. This similarity makes it possible for any organism to select or reject what it needs in a natural way.

The assimilation or elimination of marine ions is made possible through cellular receptors with a high degree of accuracy by the identifying polarity derived from biocenosis.

Cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water is usually eliminated through the kidneys. This eliminated sea water tends to be twice as concentrated and twice as voluminous as artificial physiological serum.


The advantages of Seawater Isotonic Solution in colonic hydrotherapy:
(9% - this is 1/3 of normal salt/mineral concentration of original seawater)

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Physiological irrigation and cleansing of the intestinal membranes.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Anti-anaphylactic action of sea water.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Re-absorption of micro-nutrients and minerals through the portal vein.

Using Seawater Duplase (21% - i.e.2/3 normal salt/mineral concentration of original seawater):
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) An immediate REVITALIZING and ENERGY-BOOSTING effect is obtained.

Undiluted seawater may be used exclusively for the entire Colonic Hydrotherapy session. Alternatively, the fluid may be used only in the final stages of the irrigation.

The almost 100 year clinical history of the Ocean Plasma ensures the high quality and safety of the product.

Mesotherapy is defined as:

"Method of treatment with sub-cutaneous injections from several small needles".


Dr. Pistor, who created the method of mesotherapy, defined it as: A special means for the intradermal introduction of a water soluble drug into the system. This definition reinforces the theory behind the technique for the administration of Ocean Plasma. The technique advocated the use of cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water for sub-cutaneous administration.

Mesotherapy introduces small quantities of active ingredients usually transported
by an artificial physiological serum.

The superiority of Ocean Plasma over synthetic serum has been clearly demonstrated by abundant clinical bibliography. Such a bibliography indicates all the advantages that may be acquired by a practicing "Mesotherapist" in using cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water.

The clinical practice of rehydration has been in existence for almost a hundred years and the best way to carry it out is by "Hypodermoclysis". Nowadays, this application is coming back into use after having been unjustifiably assigned to medical oblivion.

Specialized medical journals reflect this trend accurately.(l)

The aim of Mesotherapy is "to bring the remedy as close as possible to the site of the disease." This method must, therefore, take into account the advantages of using cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water.

These advantages include the following:
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) use as an active ingredient
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) use as a vehicle for other active ingredients

The topical action of Ocean Plasma has already been demonstrated particularly in dermatology: in the treatment of psoriasis, eczema, rashes and burns.

In cases of psoriasis, the clearing up of lesions is significant. It takes only a few days for a distinct improvement in pruritis to be observed. The method involves administering small 1ml doses intradermally around the lesions. Cleansing the lesions with Seawater Hypertonic Solution is recommended as the next step.

As a vehicle for the transportation of active ingredients, the Plasma replaces synthetic physiological serums.

Dr. Bernard Guez (2) perfected the technique of tumescent percutaneous hydrotomy which was used in 80 000 instances of medical treatment. The technique is the best example of the therapeutic role of water using cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water for its carrier effect. Where Seawater Isotonic Solution is concerned, this method is also directed towards:

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) providing a natural topical liquid similar to interstitial fluid.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) providing a vehicle for other active ingredients.
WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) freedom from physician-induced complications.

In articular Mesotherapy, the principal function of Seawater Isotonic Solution is to provide a remedy for "dysirrigation", in particular, processes of bone deterioration such as arthrosis and osteoporosis, or to improve anoxia of the tissues.(2)

The topical application of the Solution to the affected areas makes it possible to provide healing elements which will regularize the condition of the lesion.

According to Doctors Jarricot, Rene Quinton and others, the effect of an Isotonic Plasma injection lasts about 12 hours. In the following first, second or third hour, the patient may get chills, which may be strong reactions or completely absent or anything in between.

The body temperature occasionally rises from 1 to 2 degrees Celsius during the 4-5 hours following the injection but it then drops below the original temperature. Thirst is also to be expected and therefore appreciable quantities of water (1-3 liters or quarts) could be consumed by the patient. Lack of appetite, slight headache, or nausea are among the possible after-effects of the injection. However, these reactions should not be of any concern, since the improvements which follows these reactions will be proportional to the time of progressive recovery.

Twenty-four hours after the injection, the patient may feel tired but an improvement clearly shows up in the next 36 to 48 hours. This improvement will persist and intensify on the third and fourth day. In certain cases, it may even be spectacular. On the fifth day, the patient might feel a bit down again. That is when the second injection is given. The cycle will repeated again but the adverse reactions will gradually diminish while the improvements rapidly increase.

In many cases, important recoveries were observed after the third or fourth injection. Wounds and ulcers start to heal. Eczema stops to ooze, dead skin starts to peel off etc. Although the symptoms of illness have completely disappeared, the injections should not be interrupted at once. They should be continued for one or two more weeks and given again, from time to time, depending on the patient's state.

An analysis of the failures of Rene Quinton's therapeutic methods shows that:

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) In a large majority of these cases, the therapist did not employ the necessary or commended dosages of the injections.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) A double (second) injection during a twenty-four hour interval was not attempted.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) An inappropriate diet was used (particularly in the case of infants and the elderly)

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) The treatment injections were interrupted too early.

At the start of a series of treatments, injections (subcutaneous, intra-muscular, or intra-venous) are usually given every second day - 2 or 3 times a week.
In case of terminal stage patients and cholera, they are given twice a day up to ten days in a row. The injections are then reduced to 2-3 times weekly. As the situation improves, injections are given less frequently, however they should not be abandoned too soon.

For children over five, adolescents and adults, the injections usually start at 25-30cc and are gradually increased to 50, 75, 100 or even 200cc if the response is not entirely satisfactory. In case of eczema, the dosages should always remain low. High dosages will cause strong adverse reactions. Cholera and patients in terminal stage require a high starting dosage, typically 2 x 250cc per day. For children under five, the dosages start at 20cc.

When health state improves, the injections may be given only once or twice a week. Even if the illness symptoms have disappeared, the treatment should not be discontinued immediately.

(according to Rene Quinton)

The description in the following page faithfully reflects the original therapeutic protocol as it was utilized by Rene Quinton himself one hundred years ago or so.

Treatment protocol (translated from the French):

? The marine treatment which we have practiced in the Parisian hospital services
(St. Louis, Beaujon, Hotel-Dieu, Tenon, Maison Dubois, Pitie and the Asylum of Mouleau) consisted of injecting our seawater (now available as Ocean Plasma) which we reduced to organic isotonic consistency, per dosage for this mixture, to one hundredth to one hundredth and a half of the body weight.

The first injections I practiced (July - August 1897) were intra-venous injections. In my absence, in a desperate case of cirrhosis, death being anticipated for that same day, a temporary intern obtained complete success after a sub-cutaneous injection of my preparation which he administered without any hope. The patient left the hospital on his own two weeks later.

I don't provide my formula as being final or the best one could use. I thought one had to inject the isotonic way in order to avoid unknown or troublesome factors, however I learned from physicians of the Marine Service who have had excellent results from simply injecting my preparation in its natural form (now available under the name of Seawater Hypertonic Plasma - a revitalizing dietary supplement). This practice would have the advantage of reducing by two thirds the volume to inject - a comparative experience would have to be tried. I limited the dosage to one hundredth or one hundredth and a half of the injection volume because it seemed to me that this dosage (same concentration as human plasma) was sufficient to produce the immediate effects of a double or triple dose, however, it is not established that a stronger dose by itself would have any advantages, which I have not had the occasion to observe.

The quality of the liquid to be injected provided more precise observations which could be summarized with finality. It no use to contemplate the composition of an artificial seawater. It must be treated according to my protocol and reduced to approximate organic isotonicity (available now in the form of Seawater Isotonic Plasma).

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Minimal injection dose: 700g, for an adult with an average weight of 65 kg.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Frequency of injections: When the injections must be repeated: every five days, then every six, seven, eight days etc., according to the readily discernible duration of its effects (see details further down).

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) When several injection are to be done on the same patient, it is best to inject at the same place. The local pain of the first injection will only be slightly felt during subsequent injections.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) An injections is followed by a reaction that lasts about twelve hours. At a certain variable moment (one hour, two hours or three hours after and sometimes even while performing the injection itself if it is done slowly), the patient will feel chilly, sometime violently so, with chattering teeth and more or less intense thirst. Body temperature will rise without interruption during four or five hours (about 1.5 to 2.0 degrees C) and then will come down as it came up to finally stabilize below the initial temperature. The thirsty patient will drink 1 to 3 liters of water. He typically has absolutely no appetite, may have some nausea or slight headaches. The more this reaction is felt the more benefit will be derived from the injection. In any case, it is not to be feared regardless of the weakness of the patient or his initial temperature. In the case of febrility, when the temperature before the injection is 39.5 degrees C, it can rise to 41.5 C and even remain for six consecutive hours at 41 degrees C without the slightest inconvenience.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) Twenty-four hours after the injection, one finds the patient generally down, due not only because of the crisis which just happened but also due to the resulting partial insomnia. The improvement is however evident by certain symptoms that begin to clearly show, in favorable cases, around the 36th hour or the latest on the second day. The improvements are constant and are progressive during the 3rd and 4th days. One can witness sometimes a veritable resurrection of the patient. Striking by its suddenness: all pain or uneasiness that may have been present before the injection have left; strength returns; appetite - non-existent before the treatment - becomes exaggerated with sudden hunger and the patient, bedridden for weeks, arises and walks around for several hours.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) On the fifth day, in the morning - complete change. The scene is dominated by the same general weakness as prevailed before the treatment, except in acute cases where one injection suffices to produce a definite improvement. A second injection is therefore administered. The described cycle of effects occur once again but with more pronounced improvements.

WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) The injections are spaced out in this natural manner for five, six, seven, eight days - according to the benefits that are obtained.

The difficulties which I had to face, when the Arcachon station could no longer send me the seawater that was treated according to my protocol, have successively interrupted many of my [clinical] trials. As a collective group, my preparations nevertheless seem to have proven to be a powerful adjunctive therapy. In three particularly grave acute cases, infectious gastro-enteritis of indeterminate nature, oxalic acid poisoning, advanced liver cirrhosis, success was immediate and complete. In the case of syphilis, one early malignant syphillitis and one advanced case, the injection was followed, right from the second day, by very rapid healing of the lesions which covered the patient's body. In one case, healing was mostly complete after seven days. We obtained the same results in cutaneous tuberculosis.

The therapeutic action of seawater is therefore evident. Future trials should measure and evaluate it further. ?
