This disease, or its approach, may be known by several
signs: a more or less yellow colour of the skin where otherwise white;
a yellowness of the whites of the eyes, and failure of the bowels to
act sufficiently, with lack of appetite. It may come on gradually, or
may be induced suddenly by some disgusting mouthful or sight which
affects the nervous system, and through this the liver and stomach.
Where a disgust, or, as the Scotch call it, a "scunner," is taken at
any food, especially with children, they should never be forced to eat
it. Jaundice may follow if they are so forced. Those having the care of
children should always remember this.

The cure is found first in nursing the sympathetic nerves, by a
fomentation for an hour of the whole length of the middle of the back,
oiling before and after with olive oil. Four hours later treat the
stomach and bowels in the same way. In another four hours foment the
feet and legs similarly. All this time give a tablespoonful of hot
water every ten minutes. Then rest for twelve hours, and repeat the
cycle of treatment. During the twelve hours' rest, the hot water may be
taken in sips, as desired by the patient. If there is pain in the
region of the liver, foment that region more strongly. If severe, place
a bran poultice on above the liver, and keep it on all day, or even for
twenty-four hours if the patient is comfortable in it. By the second
day there should be a marked improvement.
