INDEX

 

Pleasant companionship is essential to the best progress of these 

patients, especially in their walks, as much more exercise may be taken 

without an unpleasant sense of fatigue with a cheerful companion than 

when alone. Solitude should be avoided at all times as much as possible. 

 

Diet.--So much has already been said upon the relation of diet to 

chastity and its influence upon the sexual organs that it is unnecessary 

to add many remarks here. Nothing could be more untrue than the 

statement made by some authors that the nature of the diet is of no 

consequence. 

 

The science of physiology teaches that our very thoughts are born of 

what we eat. A man that lives on pork, fine-flour bread, rich pies and 

cakes, and condiments, drinks tea and coffee and uses tobacco, might 

as well try to fly as to be chaste in thought. He will accomplish wonders 

if he remains physically chaste; but to be mentally virtuous would be 

impossible for him without a miracle of grace. 

 

One whose thoughts have been so long trained in the filthy ruts of vice 

that they run there automatically, and naturally gravitate 

downward--such a one must exercise especial care to secure the most 

simple, pure, and unstimulating diet. 

 

The following precautions are necessary to be observed in relation to 

diet:-- 

 

1. _Never overeat_. If too much food is taken at one meal, fast the 

next meal to give the system a chance to recover itself and to serve 

as a barrier against future transgressions of the same kind. Gluttony 

is fatal to chastity; and overeating will be certain to cause emissions, 

with other evils, in one whose organs are weakened by abuse. 

 

2. _Eat but twice a day_, or, if supper is eaten, let it be very light, 

and of the most simple food, as fruit, or fruit and bread. Nothing should 

be eaten within four or five hours of bed-time, and it is much better 

to eat nothing after three o'clock. The ancients ate but two meals a 

day; why should moderns eat three or four? If the stomach contains 

undigested food, the sleep will be disturbed, dreams will be more 

abundant, and emissions will be frequent. A most imperative rule of 

life should be, "Never go to bed with a loaded stomach." The violation 

of this rule is the great cause of horrid dreams and nightmare. 

 

3. _Discard all stimulating food_. Under this head must be included, 

spices, pepper, ginger, mustard, cinnamon, cloves, essences, all 

condiments, salt, pickles, etc., together with animal food of all kinds, 

not excepting fish, fowl, oysters, eggs, and milk. It is hardly to be 

expected that all who have been accustomed to use these articles all 

their lives will discard them wholly at once, nor, perhaps, that many 

will ever discard them entirely; but it would be better for them to 

do so, nevertheless. The only ones which should be tolerated under any 

circumstances should be lean beef or mutton, salt in very moderate 

quantities, and a moderate use of milk. Use as little of these as 

possible--_the less the better_. 

 

4. _Stimulating drinks_ should be abstained from with still greater
