Electrical Classification Of Diseases

Sources: 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.
