irritation of the mucus membrane lining the interior cavity of the
uterus. Mucus surfaces, under chronic irritation, are electrically
negative. Therefore, in this case, if it be an old one, taking the A D
current, very mild force, apply the uterine electrode, N. P., to the
os uteri, and treat over the lower dorsal and upper lumbar vertebrae
with P. P., long cord. Treat five to eight minutes, three times a
But I should add, that recovery from this infirmity, when occasioned by
uterine irritation, will be much aided by commencing each sitting with
