section 25


Item there are members in paralysis that ointment cannot be rubbed on, such as the tongue, the womb, and the nerves623 of the bladder; in this case they say to rub the remedy on the back of the head, and to rub624 the tongue and wash frequently with usquebaugh and a gargarism. Let the usque baugh be rubbed often on the back of the head, the tongue, and the paralysed limb, and it restores the speech, as has been proved on many people. A little of this water625 is meet with honey, or wine, at times to reduce the disease and at times in the middle of a meal, mixed with soup or syrop, or an electuary.
