The regulation of the diet is of the first importance in this as in most diseases of the digestive organs. He should abstain entirely from the use of vegetables, cheese, meat, corn-bread, and bread made of coarsely ground graham flour. The patient should subsist chiefly on milk, the yolk of egg, oatmeal, pearl barley, and similar food. Fats of all sorts should be carefully avoided. Next in importance as a measure of treatment, is the proper employment of enemata. We have seen more benefit derived from the injection of large quantities of hot water - as hot as could be borne, and in as large quantities as could be retained-than from any other single measure of treatment Fomentations to the bowels should be applied once or twice a day, and the abdominal girdle should be worn night and day. The patient should take great care to thoroughly clothe himself, wearing woolen undergarments the year around. Cathartics and emetics should be scrupulously avoided. When the disease is produced by cold, it is best treated by sweating baths, as the Russian, Turkish, vapor, or hot-water bath. The warm-blanket pack is also an excellent remedy in these cases. The hot or cold water used in injections should be employed in considerable quantities, either as hot as can be borne or quite cool. Dr. Mesmer, an eminent physician, employs cold-water injections altogether. We have used both hot and cold water successfully in both acute and chronic diarrhea, sometimes one and sometimes the other being best adapted to the particular case. If one does not give relief, the other should be tried. The physician mentioned employs in acute diarrhea about one quart of iced water at a time, injecting it slowly, and having it retained as long as possible. Cool sitz baths employed daily for from fifteen to thirty minutes, the temperature being gradually lowered from 92 to 85, are an excellent means of treatment in chronic intestinal catarrh. In the acute form of the disease, when fever is present, and there is evidence of considerable inflammation, the cool wet-sheet pack, and continuous application of cold compresses over the bowels, are excellent measures of treatment. Vomiting and other symptoms should be treated as when they occur in connection with other diseases. When symptoms of typhlitis, or catarrh of the rectum, appear, applications of ice compresses should be made to the parts affected during the first stages of the disease, but after it becomes evident that suppuration must take place, the ice compresses must be exchanged for fomentations, so as to hasten suppuration, and thereby terminate the disease.
