prudent, moderate, wise. [Nola/Pérez. 1994:80:189]

      Nola, on page 80 of the Pérez' translation  from Catalan into Castillan advises:

'When sick do not call a physician who knows a good deal about science but is has little practical experience. By killing some, those practicing the trade of bloodletting learn how to cure others. Take care to find a prudent, experienced and wise quack prone to waiting for the conclusion (of bloodletting). If he wants to experiment with you, do not consent to that nor to  having a quack or a surgeon who goes around dressed with jewels and rings; those things are not healthy and it is embarrassing paying a meager fee to one adorned in such riches.'

After being bleed, it would be wise and prudent to feed the patient any of Nola's 10 recipes for the sick such as:

1 tsp dried leaf oregano crushed
1 tsp. celery seed
1/8 tsp black pepper

Rub the chicken with hen’s fat. Mix the herbs and rub the chicken with that. Start roasting the chicken. In the meantime mix the orange juice, rosewater and the remainder of the fat. Beat the eggs and add them to the juice. When the fowl is done in abut 45-60 minutes, add the juice. Leave it during the time it takes to recite the *Creed. Remove it and serve it to a sick person who has lost his appetite (and to others who do have one!).

*The Apostle’s Creed takes just under 1 min, while the Nicene Creed takes 1.25 min.
