Where biliousness prevails, without any symptom of real
liver disease, it is well first to look to the state of the stomach and
bowels. Take a teacupful of hot water twenty minutes before meals, and
the liquorice mixture (see Constipation) after meals. Then give a
strong blanket fomentation to the feet and legs for an hour in the
evening. If there be pain or feverish heat in the region of the bowels,
press cold cloths over the painful part while the feet are fomented.
When the liver is really swollen, hardened, or painful, the pulse will
either be quick with feverish symptoms or slow with coldness. If it be
a feverish case, press cold cloths over the liver, changing them when
warm, for an hour: at the same time foment the feet and legs as
directed above. See that there is heat enough to make the patient
comfortable under the cold applications. Inflammation of the liver will
readily yield to this treatment.
When the case is a cold one with slow pulse, use no cold cloths, but
apply fomentations over the liver, as well as to the feet and legs.
Smoking and alcoholic drinks must be entirely given up--these habits
are peculiarly severe on the liver. The treatment will not be likely to
cure in a day or in a week, but patient perseverance with the
fomentations should eventually effect a cure. Too rich food throws a
great strain on the liver, and a plain and spare diet with prolonged
mastication is necessary with above treatment if a cure is to be
