Definitions of PROVERBS, MEDICAL
Sort: Oldest first
A proverbial expression frequently contains sound sense in its directions. In medicine, the greatest collection is in the Regimen of Health of the School of Salernum, composed in the 11th century, by John of Milan. Yet, although good sense is often inculcated, we frequently meet with the reverse. Most of the proverbs are hygienic.
