Without encouraging them to make themselves felt, the Herald-Tribune syndicated columnist discusses symptoms in particular (which vary according to age, sex, occupation, etc.) but then goes on to provide an overall account of the common diseases and disturbances. From headaches to chest pains, from the sensory organs to the heart, the digestive system, etc., etc. this closes with mental and emotional conditions. All the way, from head to too, it has covered the various parts of the body and their attendant organic or functional disorders in a fashion which does not unduly alarm, allay or delay securing a professional opinion. Sound.
