This edition of a work first published in 1906 has been revised and keeps pace with the discoveries and change in practices in the treatment of minor maladies, including coughs, colds, sore throats, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, neuralgia, headaches and minor glandular disturbances, and concludes with chapters on general health and treatment in advanced years. While the therapeutic methods suggested at times do not conform with the generally accepted beliefs, the methods employed are satisfactory and will usually be found beneficial. Each subject is considered with sufficient thoroughness to aid in assuring adequate therapy. The book will continue to find its field of usefulness.
