Quote Paraph: "administer a daily clyster, and prescribe a specific three times a day. His (Willis) favored specific was peony, which he gave in various oral preparations. He also recommenced that it be worn around the neck. The most simple Medicines, and which experience has prov'd to be very efficacious, are the Roots of the Male Peony, and its Seed: Take Roots of the male Peony dryed and powdered from a Dram to two or three Drams, let it be given twice a Day in the following Tincture. Take leaves of Mistletow of the Oak two Drams, Peony Roots slic'd half an Ounce, castoreum a Dram, let them be put in a close Vessel with Betony water, or simple Peony water, and White-wine of each a Pound, Salt of Mistletow of the Oak, or of common mistletoe two Drams, let them digest in a close vessel by a Sand heat for two days; let him take three Ounces with a Dose of the Powder before prescrib'd."
