Of Waking. Chap. 9.

WAking ouer measure is default of might to sléepe, and is an euill of the braine contrary to Litargi. And this euill commeth of too greate moouing of the braine, and drinesse of redde Colera, or blacke, of intemporate heate, and of too salt humours. Of all those commeth inordinate waking, and anguish follow∣eth, coulour chaungeth,* & busie thoughts increase, and rauing and vnreasonable suspecions, the bodye wexeth leane and drie, the vertue of digestion is corrupt, all mans complection chaungeth, the eye liddes and face swelleth, and full euill sicknesses bréed in the bodie. That these perish not, men shall hastelye pro∣uide a medicine to cure them. Men shall annoint their faces and temples with things that bréede sleepe, womans milke is good to bring them on sleepe, the body shall be fed with good meats. Looke afore in lib. 6.
