Sometimes mere internal inflammation is mistaken for this

disease. In the case of inflammation of the bladder, apply a large hot

BRAN POULTICE (see) to the lower back, and change cold towels over

the front of the body where the pain is. Afterwards rub all parts over

with hot olive oil, and wipe dry. Take only plain food, oat or

wheat-meal porridge, Saltcoats biscuits, etc.



Where actual stones are formed, or a tendency to their formation

exists, all water drunk should be distilled, or boiled rain water.

Where stones are present the heat may be applied to the back, but no

cold in front. The soft water tends to dissolve the stones, the heat

assists in their expulsion from the body. Diet same as in GOUT (see).
