Ana, my question was more specific. I am well aware both of _Physica_ and of 
_Causes and cures_.

However, I want to know, where exactly Hildegard wrote about the topics you 
mentioned and what exactly she wrote.

Please quote the work and the relevant passage in question.

One of the reasons I am asking: there is much strange folklore floating around 
about Hildegarde, therefore I am trying to check the evidence from her works.

Thank you!
