Cod Liver Oil

Cod Liver Oil, a valuable remedy in most forms of chronic disease in which wasting is a prominent symptom, and as a tonic during convalescence from acute disease. It is a particularly favourite remedy in all lung diseases attended by loss of flesh, in chronic rheumatism, and in scrofula. It is no use giving cod liver oil if it cannot be digested, and although it is more readily absorbed than other fats and oils are, it must fail to be of service where high fever is present. Again, the existence of diarrhoea is a contra-indication to its use.
