This manuscript consists of three chapters. They describe body diseases, their prevention and treatment (e.g.: tremor, convulsion and others). Each disease is explained and analysed separately, along with its means of prevention, causes and treatment with herbs and drugs. The book contains a collection of illustrations of such herbs and flowers as clove and anemone. The author gives an explanation of each of these flowers. There are also illustrations of certain types of fruits. At the end of the book, the author describes some of the flowers and herbs used in the treatment of some common diseases of his time. One of these herbs is a seed called Indian Bastal. It helps urine to flow easily, in case of dysuria and urinacy tract infections.
