Sweating Treatments

In the employment of sweating processes of every kind it must be constantly borne in mind that the natural effect of these applications is to produce inactivity of the bowels...caused by diminished secretion of moisture from the intestinal mucous membrane. The constipating tendency... may be largely overcome by copious water drinking. Cold water is preferable to hot as a means of stimulating peristaltic activity. Cold water may be taken freely at the proper hours. p 692
