Give the stomach rest. The patient should take no food for twenty-four-hours, or, at the most, nothing but a few sips of water-gruel or something of a very light, starchy character. The warm full bath will greatly mitigate the patient's suffering by relieving the congestion of the head. Care should be taken to keep the feet thoroughly warm by means of hot jugs, bricks, etc. Very hot, or alternate hot and cold applications may be made to the head, as in many cases the application of the two will give most prompt relief. Fomentations over the stomach and bowels should be applied for several hours at the beginning of the attack. It is generally not best to administer remedies to stop the vomiting, at any rate at first, as it is a remedial effort of nature to remove from the stomach the offending matters which would do great harm if allowed to remain. The violence of the retching may be greatly relieved, and the stomach more quickly and thoroughly emptied, by making the patient drink large quantities of lime-water. When the character of the matter vomited shows that the stomach has been emptied of the decomposing food which it contained, the patient may be allowed to take a few sips of hot water or very weak tea, or to swallow bits of ice or sips of iced-water, as may be most grateful and is best tolerated by the stomach. The vomiting may be checked almost immediately in this way. It is well also to administer large warm enemata for the purpose of relieving the bowels as quickly as possible. They are almost always found to be obstinately constipated in these cases. Persons subject to frequent attacks of gastric catarrh have what is known as bilious dyspepsia, and must carefully avoid all the causes enumerated if they would recover health. All kinds of articles of food difficult of digestion, especially fat meats, fried foods, and most animal foods, together with butter, sugar, hot drinks, spices, and condiments, must be discarded from the dietary. As the digestion is very slow, meals should be placed sufficiently far apart to give the stomach plenty of time for digestion. Two meals a day are for such a person far preferable to more. Nothing should be taken under any circumstances after five o'clock in the afternoon, and nothing after four o'clock if the patient is in the habit of retiring early. Most patients will derive great advantage from a diet composed almost wholly of fruits and grains, avoiding meats, and coarse vegetables. About the only vegetables which are tolerated by persons subject to gastric catarrh are potatoes and asparagus. The wearing of the umschlag, or wet girdle, constantly during the night is an excellent curative measure which may be adopted with benefit by persons suffering from this distressing affliction. When catarrh of the stomach is the result of taking cold, the most prompt and efficient measure is a sweating bath of some kind, as the warm blanket pack, the vapor or Turkish bath.
