Chlorosis Green Sickness
Source: A Newly Discovered System Of Electrical Medication
This is a disease mostly or entirely peculiar to young women who have
not menstruated, and disappears on the establishment of the monthly
Take the A D current. If any symptoms exist of an effort of nature to
bring on the menses, note the time of them, and regard it, in the
treatment, as the proper monthly period. If no symptoms of such a period
are perceptible, the practitioner must fix upon a time for it, and
regard it accordingly. About four to six days before the periodic time,
commence to treat as follows, using a moderate force: Insert the
uterine electrode, N. P., wet in warm water, per vagina, until it meets
the uterus; and manipulate with P. P. over the dorsal and first two
lumbar vertebrae, and more or less over the back on both sides of the
spinal column, some six or eight minutes daily, down to the period fixed
upon for the catamenia to appear. If they do not start, let the patient
rest for some four or five days, and then begin with general tonic
treatment. (See page 95.) Continue this, three times a week, until
within a little less than a week of the periodic time, when the same
treatment with the uterine electrode as was at first employed should be
resumed, and again be continued to the time assigned for the menses. If
no success should appear, return, after a few days, to general tonic
treatment as before. Let these forms of treatment be prosecuted until
success crowns the effort. Ordinarily, not many months--perhaps not more
than one or two months--will be required; especially, if the treatment
be aided, on the part of the patient, by a good degree of moderate
exercise in the open air, and a free, nourishing diet.
