VI. Sudorisicks or Hydroticks, whose Basis is an acid Salt, which are given when the Mass of blood is too much shut up or bound too fast by saline fixed Particles, combined with Sulphureous and •crrestrial, whereby its serosities are not easy to be sent away by Sweat, as in continual Fea∣vers, Scurvy, &c. where this Acid meeting with the said fixed Salt in the Body, dissolves the Combinations, and so unlocks the fermenting Blood, disposing it to an Ephidro∣sis or Sweating.
VII. Sudorificks or Hydroticks whose Basis is a fixt or Vo∣latile Salt, which may be given to such whose Blood abounds in a Sercus humor, degenerating into a Sowrness, as in a Dropsie, Cacochymia, and Convulsive affections: for, these Salts meeting with the acid, saline Particles of the humors, and combining with them, unlock the joynting together of the Blood, and by their Heterogenity agitate its Mass, whereby its Scrosities are the more easily sepa∣pated in Sweating.
VIII. Sudorificks or Hydroticks, whose Basis is a nitrous Salt, which may be given in the same Cases with the for∣mer, for that they destroy the Power of the acid Salt, and so dispose the Mass of Blood, that whilst it ferments, its serum and Excrements may be the more easily separated and sent away.
