DISCUSSION ON GASTRIC DISEASES.

DISCUSSION ON GASTRIC DISEASES. Dr. Charles V.

When a child is vomiting ten or fifteen times a day, the milk or any other food it is given, I think it is absurd for the physician to prescribe any food at all. I refer now to an extreme case of frequent vomiting or diarrhea, in order to take this simply as my point of departure and then we will take a slighter case. In such cases it is absolutely absurd to give the child food. All these artificial foods, prepared from cream and water in all the different ways, are simply due to the
