His body no medicine needs.

Life in body lasts with pleasure.
Know digestion; with keen appetite 944
Eat what is suitable and right.
With fasting adjusted food right 945
Cures ills of life and makes you bright
Who eats with clean stomach gets health 946
With greedy glutton abides ill-health.

Suffer from untold diseases here.
Test disease, its cause and cure 948
And apply remedy that is sure.

The sickmen, sickness, season and treat.
Patient, doctor, medicine and nurse 950
Are four-fold codes of treating course.
