    We will also find that there must be mindful conditions as respecting the diet, that those things or conditions that cause too much heaviness or weight - either in stomach or intestines - are not taken.  Things easily assimilated, but those that are very nourishing and blood building.  Would be well either to use honey in honeycomb as one of the conditions in the diet, or to use the Yogut [Yogurt?] as is prepared by the Battle Creek Institute for the cleansing of the colon.  This combined WITH those, to be sure, of the charcoal and the other ingredients.  Ready for questions.
(Q)  Gas and pain in lower intestines is much less, but not entirely gone.  Is this satisfactory and to be expected?
(A)  It must be expected that this will not be relieved all at once, for the formations of gases are from acidity - or from indigestion combined WITH the drying of secretions, as are indicated by conditions in the throat that exist now, also BELOW the diaphragm as well as above the diaphragm; but with the keeping of those things in system that absorb this - as of the charcoal, as of an intestinal antiseptic, and those light forces that keep an even balance - it will gradually disappear entirely.  Do not take foods that DO NOT digest!
