About this Item

1646 RARE Diaeteticon Nonnius Diet Food Prep WINE Fish Hygiene & Health Medicine A rare 17th-century medical book designed to be an aid in dietetics and gastronomy by Ludovicus Nonnius. Nonnius was a Belgian physician who is considered to be the founder of dietetics as a medical field. His study on dietetics in Diaeteticon (1627) was the culmination of his work and was the first systematic study of how food effects health and hygiene. Diaeteticon is divided into four main sections, each of which focuses on a different type of food and its effects on health Principles of nutrition types of breads, benefits of fruits and vegetables, preservation properties of salt Treatment of meat, specifically pork, and how much should be eaten and prepared Treatment of food from the sea and river fish Treatment of drinks water, wine, beer; whether rainwater is safe to drink; how much safer wine is to drink that water Nonnius claimed that mineral water had healing powers, specifically in healing kidney stones and recommended drinking spa-water as a remedy. While many of Nonnius s health assumptions are considered antiquated, his hypotheses and research on mineral water and fish consumption are still accurate and used today.
