Nerve Centres Failing






Source: Papers On Health

Many diseases flow from this cause, but at
present we only consider one. That is where a "numbness" begins to show
itself in fingers and toes, and to creep up the limbs. No time should
be lost in treating such a case. It arises from failure in the spinal
nerves, and these must be nursed into renewed vitality. This will be
greatly helped by wearing over the back next the skin a piece of new
flannel. Rub (see Massage) the back with warm olive oil night and
morning, working especially up and down each side of the spine. Pursue
this rubbing gently but persistently, but do not fatigue the patient,
which may easily be done. Cease rubbing the moment fatigue manifests
itself. Continue this treatment for weeks even, and also treat, as in
next articles, mind as well as body. (See Locomotor Ataxia.)
