For Griping Pains and Straining (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

For Griping Pains and Straining.

Rarely ever is dysentery without griping pains or strainĀ­ing. In such cases the patient should have every night, before retiring to bed, a quart of warm goat's milk sweetened with sugar. The dish into which the goat's milk is to be milked, must be made warm before milking. Hence it is necessary that the goat's milk be near at hand; whenever such milk gets cold it must not be warmed. This beverage quenches the thirst, gives nourishment, heals the injured intestines, and soothes the strains. It may be drank as long as the pain lasts.

In case the griping pains do not yet cease, the patient should have three or four drops of scorpion oil rubbed over the navel. If this does not help either, then take matronis vulgaris, cut them off from the stem a span high, strip flowers and herbs from the stem, perhaps a good handful, cut them fine, add an egg thereto, also two spoonfuls of flower and three spoonfuls of vinegar, stir it well together and bake it in lard or olive oil until it resembles that of a cake. Then put it as warm as you can stand it upon the navel, and put a cloth folded four times over it. When it becomes cold warm it again in the lard or oil, as before mentioned. With God's aid this will prove beneficent.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
