Dealthee INSTRUCTIONS to be Observed in Physick Chyrurgery When you enter upon the Cure of any Disease let this be your Method SEE what superfluous humor doth abound that have respect to either by Vomit or Purge with a meet Medicine for it As if Fleam abound it must be holpen with such a Medicine which expels Fleam And so if Choler abound or Melancholy the same must be considered Likewise if the distemperature of the Liver or Spleen do weaken the Stomack then the cure consisteth only in the healing of those members and not to administer any thing for the Stomack at all And let not any man ground himself only in the knowledge of an Urine in the distinguishing between the Disease and the Cause thereof as namely the Ague or Cholick or Flux and such like and so to minister Means or Medicine according But let him search out if by all means possible the cause it self For in all inward Diseases there ought to be as much care taken of the pulses and of the State and of the Disposition of the Brain of him that is sick as of the Urine Also the egestion sweat and spittle and other excrements ought not to be neglected for they may shew that which the Urine shew not As for example in a Plurisie or Inflammation of the Lungs or in a Squinzy or such like there is more known by the spittle than there is by the Urine And again in a Lask or in a bloody Flux or in a Chollick or Illiack there is more certain judgment to be given by the egestion or ordure than there is by the Urine For Urine is nothing else but only the washy part of the blood for it is separated from the blood in the Liver and sucked from thence into the Reins from whence it distilleth down into the bladder and so passeth forth Seeing therefore that Urine is the excrement that is separated from the blood there is good reason why it should shew the state of the Liver and also of the blood
