54tum alia mutatione resumendi aegrotantes adhibito usu aquarum naturalium atque natatione maritima et uaporatione locorum natura spirantium, quo etiam sudores moueantur, non ob uirium fatigationem, sed quo possit calida spiratione ac naturali ⟨re⟩corporatio fieri patientium partium.

54Then make another change and apply restorative measures, having the patient use natural springs and also swim in the sea. And let him make use of the vapors from places having natural emana­tions. These warm, natural emanations will induce sweating and will have the effect, not of fatiguing the patient, but of promot­ing the metasyncrisis of the affected parts.
