CHAP. 55.—REMEDIES FOR LIVER COMPLAINTS AND FOR ASTHMA.
Liver complaints are cured by taking a wolf's liver dried, in
honied wine; or by using the dried liver of an ass, with twice
the quantity of rock-parsley and three nuts, the whole beaten
up with honey and taken with the food. The blood, too, of a
he-goat is prepared and taken with the food. For persons suffering from asthma, the most efficient remedy of all is the blood
of wild horses1
taken in drink; and next to that, asses' milk
boiled with bulbs, the whey being the part used, with the
addition of nasturtium steeped in water and tempered with
honey, in the proportion of one cyathus of nasturtium to three
semi-sextarii of whey. The liver or lights of a fox, taken in
red wine, or bear's gall in water, facilitate the respiration.
