The treatment of anaemia and debility will be described elsewhere. Many of these cases complain more of their heart symptoms than of anything else. In a number of them, all that has been said regarding cases of neurasthenia might be repeated. In a great many the anaemia itself is the result of dyspepsia and improper feeding, and whether the full "Weir-Mitchell" treatment is thought advisable or not, all of them are improved by the careful regulation of their diet and an increased amount of nourishment. As a rule, milk forms the best addition to an ordinary dietary, because of the ease with which it is generally taken and digested. In other cases it may be found that the patients are taking large quantities of starchy food and little or no protein, and it seems that to some individuals at any rate some form of meat food is essential for the formation of good blood. In other cases again the anaemia is largely, if not wholly, caused by constipation, and in such instances the regulation of the diet and the amount of fluid taken is a far better, and generally more permanently effectual, means of overcoming this trouble than habitual drug taking.
