This is the accumulation of gases in the body, usually

caused by fermentation of the food at some part of the digestive

process. A failure of the vital energy in the stomach and related

organs is generally the cause. Over-exertion, worry, grief, any

prolonged strain, will cause this failure. As first treatment, then,

the cause should be removed, if this be at all possible. Do less

work, cultivate simple faith in God instead of worry. Do not sorrow

over-much. The best material remedy is to take tablespoonfuls of hot

water every few minutes for several hours. If cold, the feet should be

bathed (see Bathing Feet), or fomented, for about an hour at a time.

These two simple remedies will generally prove sufficient, if

persevered in.
