The guilt of failing to cure the child was probably easier to endure than the helplessness of doing nothing. There are many recipes for foods I fondly remember eating as a child. Note the many recipes for a single serving that involve lengthy and labor intensive preparation. Refrigeration was uncommon and the temperature of iceboxes was well above freezing, so food had to be consumed quickly. Many recipes use uncooked meat and eggs that can lead to several diseases. Obvious typographical errors have been corrected but contemporary spelling and usage are unchanged. Page headers are retained, but are moved to the beginning of the paragraph where the text is interrupted. Page numbers are shown in brackets [ ]. The author claims the material is directed toward non medical "family" members, but many passages are obviously copied from medical textbooks. The following glossary of unfamiliar (to me) terms is quite lengthy and does not include incomprehensible (to me) medical terms and many words and names I could not find in several reference books. The book's own 16 page dictionary is on page 893. I recommend the article on "hydrophobia" as an interesting history of the Pasture treatment.
