1 Review
The author desires to remark that it is not the purpose of this book to undertake to displace the wise family physician, but rather to aid and abet him in the management of a class of maladies which requires, perhaps more than all others, the thorough co-operation of the patient. That this may be secured, it is necessary that the patient should be educated in relation to the nature of his malady and the various methods by which he may render assistance in his own restoration to health. The need of such a work has been made apparent to the writer many times in his own practise. For years past, his patients have been constantly demanding a manual which should constitute, to some degress at least, a guide to them in their efforts to recover a healthy digestion; and it is hoped that this little work will be found to give the information which every sufferer from indigestion ought to have, and which every busy general practitioner cannot but be glad to have his patients suffering from this class of disorders, posses. - The Stomach: Its Disorder and How to Cure Them.The Organs of Digestion.Foods.The Digestive Fluids.General View of the Digestive Process.The Maladies of the Modern Stomach.Important New Discoveries Relating to Digestion.Symptons of Dyspepsia.The Symptomatic Treatment of Indigestion.Treatment of Dyspepsia.Remedies for the Home Treatment of Dyspepsia.Quacks and Nostrums.Graphic Method.Index
