Muscular Pains






Source: Papers On Health

These pains occur usually when a patient has been for
some time in one position, sitting or lying, and rises suddenly in a
particular way. They sometimes take such hold of the breast or back
muscles as to make it appear as if some serious disease were present;
even in the limbs they may cause great distress on any sudden motion.
They may arise from a gradual overdoing of the muscles concerned.
They are similar to what is commonly called a sprain, but as they are
gradually produced their cause is often overlooked, and needless
distress of mind caused by taking the pain for that of cancer or some
such trouble. We write to point out that pains do not always mean
serious disease, and before any one becomes despairing about their
health, they should make sure they understand their case thoroughly.

These pains, too, refuse to yield to ordinary hot and cold methods of
treatment. The remedy is found internally in half a teaspoonful of
tincture of Guaiacum in a teacupful of hot water three times a day.
After two or three days, a teaspoonful of the tincture may be taken in
the cup of water. Continue until two ounces of tincture have been used.
Or the tabloids of Guaiacum and sulphur, now found in our drug shops,
may be taken, one tabloid representing the half-teaspoonful of
tincture.

Externally, rub gently yet firmly the affected muscles with warm oil
for ten minutes or so once a day for a week or ten days. Of course,
rest must be taken, and the overstress which caused the trouble avoided
in future.
