Diabetes A Kidney Disease
Source: A Newly Discovered System Of Electrical Medication
This disease occurs in two forms--diabetes insipidus and diabetes
mellitus. In the first named form, the disease is readily cured. In the
latter, it is very formidable, and is rarely, if ever, cured by
medicines; especially when of long standing. In this latter variety of
the disease, the urea is absent from the urine, and in its place is
found more or less of sugar--often large quantities: Dunglison says
2-1/2 oz. in a pint.
The electrical state of the disease, in both of these forms, is negative
1. D. insipidus. Use the B D current, of moderate force. Place P. P.
at the coccyx or on the upper dorsal vertebra, or on both in
alternation, which is better, and treat over the kidneys with N. P.
five to eight minutes, once a day for three or four days. If this should
fail to cure, (as it seldom will), go on with the same treatment three
times a week.
2. D. mellitus. Take the A D current, of mild force. Place P. P. as
in d. insipidus, and treat the kidneys with N. P. about five to eight
minutes, three times a week; supplementing this with general tonic
treatment, once or twice a week.
Be patient and persevering. In bad cases, months will be required to
effect a cure; but persistent effort, as above prescribed, will rarely
if ever fail, unless the vital force is nearly expended.
