The Old Man's Guide To Health

The British Library
Reproducing the 1750s health-guide for men by physician John Hill. With some hysterical notes - ‘carrots are to be avoided, for no old stomach can digest them’ - much sound advice remains, including the prescription for ‘a warm bath and a glass of wine if you are having difficulty getting to sleep’, and ‘use medicines only as a last resort – address diet and lifestyle first to resolve illness’.

Hardback, 74 pages, 19 black-and-white illustrations.
6 ¾" x 4 ¼".
£6.95

The book was very informative about dietary practices and medicine in the eighteenth century. What was abundantly clear was that former generations had a considerable fund of wisdom when it came to nutritional matters. We do not have the monopoly of wisdom in these things! The reader is given a very useful insight into what the daily menu was like.
