For Phlegmatic Illnesses:

Since sikanjabîn syrup is beneficial in phlegmatic and bilious fevers accompanied by vomiting. Make a syrup with sour vinegar, honey and sugar. Cook until the consistency is like syrup. Drink it to relax the stomach, quench the thirst, reduce vomiting and lower fevers accompanied by vomiting or diarrhea. It relaxes bowels and is admirable.

*Balsamic vinegar was used. It is a nice non-alcoholic drink especially in summer to quench the thirst.´
