Fiarfaigter ann so cesa fhearr in t-aer seimh glan, oir adeir Galen curob aer seim solas is maith do comead na slainti, & go nglantur fuil & spiruda uadha; mas ead is aer glan is maith isan aimsir so. Item cach ni laigdiges & indarbus truailled na lennann arcena is inmolta he; mas ead o do-ni in t-aer glan & fuindeogach na neithi sin, is e is fearr ann. Item adeir Almusor cach aimsir a fagaid piasta in talman a fuachaisi & na h-inaid a mbid fo talam, mar atait lochaid & blathnada, esoga & bruic & coininedha, & na heoin bis fo talam amail ataid bonnain lena & caislain coradh , & fagaid a n-uighi & a nid & teithid o deathaighib truaillighthi in talman cum an aeir glain t-solais, amail muines in naduir doib; mas ead o thuiges naduir na n-ainmintid mbruidamail curob aer glan is fearr ann, tuigid in naduir daenna curob e is fearr ann; mas ead is aer glan is fearr annsan aimsir seo. Item adeir Gillibertinus, da mbia in t-errach fuar fliuch, maille re h-aer dorcha & re nellaib dorcha reamra duba gu minic gu signidi sin plaigh in bliadhain sin; mas ead is e a contrardha so is fearr ann. Item adeir Ipocras cach uili ni o comfurtachtaigter in craidhi, & indarbus a gallra mar ata singcopis & cardiaca pasio & a cosmaili is maith e; mas ead o do-ni in t-aer glan na cumachta so, is e is fearr isan aimsir seo. Item adeir Galen na cuirp bis arna glanad ona n-imarcrachaibh remhra, amail atait lucht lenna fuair & lenna duibh, bid slan annsan aimsir seo; mas ead iss e in t-aer glan o

Teagar ana aigid so a h-ugduras Galen a lebar na fiabras, oir adeir curub é in t-aer fliuch dorcha reamar is fearr annsan aimsir seo & dearbtur so; oir cach uile ni seimh tolltanac is e is tusca teid d'indsaige in craide & na mball spirudalda, & cach ni remur dunaidh & dallaidh na poiri & ni gabann in corp truaillid1 na {MS folio 201a} morgadh uadha, amail ata in t-aer remar, mas eadh iss e in t-aer remar is fearr and.

Mas ead o do-ni in t-aer remar na neithi sin do remrugad & do medugad is e is fearr ann. Item aderat na doctuiri co ndleaghthar a n-aimsir in tedma teidhid a nglenntaib & a cailltib dorcha & a n-inadaib fliucha da reir sin iss e in t-aer remar is fearr ann. Item cach uili ni o folmuigthear in corp amail ata lanamnus & saethar mor & obair ceardcha & fothrugudh tirim & betha tirim & a cosmaili is olc e isan aimsir seo; da reir sin is e in t-aer remur is fearr ann. Item gach uili ni remhraigis na spiruit & toirmiscus in codlad, amail ata boltnugad na n-uball cumra & pomum ambre & sitoni & blath lili & balad coindli & musgus & blath nenufar & uiola & duillebar soileach, & blath rosa gil & blath truim, is maith e isan aimsir seo; mas ead o do-ni in t-aer remar na neithi so iss e is fearr ann, amail adeir Iohannes Mesue.
