#1 If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts.

# 2 Avoid fried meats which anger up the blood.

#3 Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.

#4 Avoid running at all times.

#5 Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society, the social ramble ain’t restful.
