South winds induce dullness of hearing, dimness of visions, heaviness
of the head, torpor, and languor; when these prevail, such symptoms
occur in diseases. But if the north wind prevail, coughs, affections
of the throat, hardness of the bowels, dysuria attended with rigors,
and pains of the sides and breast occur. When this wind prevails,
all such symptoms may be expected in diseases.
