General Directions Of The Current





Category: PRINCIPLES OF PRACTICE.
Source: A Newly Discovered System Of Electrical Medication

Negative affections, as a general rule, are best treated with the
upward-running current--the positive pole being placed at a lower
point than the negative. Inflammatory affections, and other plus
conditions, for the most part, should be treated with the down-running
current, keeping the negative pole at a lower point than the positive.
But these rules admit of frequent exceptions, which every practitioner's
experience will soon reveal.

The downward current, running with the downward and outward course
of the nerves, tends to depletion and weakness, for the reason that
it runs off from the system the electro-vital fluid. The upward
current, on the other hand, running against the nerves, inward towards
their source, feeds the system with fresh electricity, and gives a
tonic effect. Yet for this purpose, it must not be too long continued,
nor of too severe strength, lest it overtask and irritate the
nerve-sheaths.

In treating a paralyzed organ, the current should commonly be run from
a healthy part, whether that require it to be directed downwards or
upwards. For example: In treating a paralyzed foot or leg, the positive
pole should be upon the lower part of the spine--at the coccyx--or even
under the sole of the opposite foot. It is best to alternate between
these positions. So in treating a paralyzed hand or arm, let the current
be run from the upper part of the spine, and frequently also from the
opposite hand. With the negative electrode, treat all over the
paralyzed parts. Yet it is well, in these cases, often to reverse the
direction of the current for a brief period at the close of the
sittings, say one to two minutes, for the purpose of rousing the nervous
susceptibility, and to prevent exhaustion from too continuously running
off the electro-vital fluid.
