Cache-Control: public, max-age=1024000 Pharmacopoeia Extemporanea: Epileptic Ale

Epileptic Ale

Take Male-Piony roots fresh gather'd, 4 ounces; Peacocks-Dung half a pound; Raisins 12 ounces; prepare for a bag for 2 gallons.

It's held a specific against Epilepsie, and Vertigo.

Peacocks Dung is of two distinct parts, one dark coloured and chaffey, which consists of the undigestible Relicts of the food, and is good for nothing; the other white and uniform, which being the recrement of the blood, thrown off in the last digestion, and enriched with volatile salt, is the only part that hath virtue in it.
