Electrical Classification Of Diseases
Category: FIRST PRINCIPLES.
Source: A Newly Discovered System Of Electrical Medication
There are two, and only two, primary classes of disease--those in which
the electro-vital force is abnormally positive, and those where it is
preternaturally negative. The former class comprises every variety and
phase of hypersthenia, and the latter, every sort and degree of
anaesthesia, or rather, of azooedynamia. Inflammation may be taken as a
general representative of the positive or hypersthenic class--those
forms of disease in which there is too much electro-vitality, or in
which the vital force may be said to be too active. Paralysis may
stand as a general representative of the negative or azooedynamic
class--those in which the vital action is too low or weak.
