If the dyspeptic would recover, he must seek carefully for each one of the causes of his disease, and carefully remove them. It is of no use to hope for recovery without doing this. If the cause is in the manner of eating, let him take care to eat prop erly. If he has erred in eating too much, or in eating improper articles of food, let him make a thorough reform in this regard. If the difficulty has been in overwork, too much anxiety, too little time to digest, or too sedentary habits, he must get away from his care, his business, his writing-desk, and seek health in out-of-door exercise, coupled with happy, cheerful associations. The careworn, burdened mother must have relief from the tedium of her routine life. A journey, a visit to a friend, or some other means of diversion, must be adopted. Whatever the cause has been, it must be removed. No medicine known, no matter how potent, nor how skillful its administration, can antidote the effects of the transgression of physical laws. Nature is inexorable. She demands obedience, and will not be put off with any sort of subterfuge.

To the great army of dyspeptics, to which almost the whole American nation belong, and a large proportion of other nationalities, we would say, You can get well if you wish to, if you care enough about health to make the effort, and we are about to point out the way; but the man who has been a dyspeptic for years must not expect to get well in a week, nor in a month. He must be willing to persevere in his efforts after he has started in the right direction, never relaxing for a moment his determination to get well. He must also make up his mind to deny his appetite of all things harmful, to wage a constant warfare against the things which have made him ill.
