Philosophy Of Disease And Cure





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

In every part of the animal economy, polar derangements in the
electro-vital principle are liable to occur. These derangements are
always the real foundation of disease. They may be occasioned by a
thousand agencies, which act as the procuring cause of disease; but
the proximate and sustaining cause is polar disturbance--derangement
of the electro-vital poles. Parts which, in health, are relatively
positive, may become negative, and that which should be negative may
become positive. Or again, a part, naturally positive to its
counterpart, may become excessively so, and that which should be
relatively negative may become negative to a morbid degree.

To correct these polar disturbances and restore the normal polarization,
is to cure the complaint. This is, under the treatment of most
physicians, often accomplished by the use of medicines, and by
mechanical or surgical agency. We accomplish it by the proper
application of the poles of our electrical apparatus. In cases where
there is virus to be destroyed, or abnormal growths to be removed,
we also secure the chemical action appropriate to these ends by the
proper selection of our current. It often happens that mechanical or
surgical action is demanded. In many such cases, we do not profess
to secure normal polarization and consequent cure by means of
electricity alone. Yet, in a large proportion of the cases where
mechanical or surgical agency is usually thought to be indispensable,
we are able to cure by electric action only, since by it we can exert
very considerable mechanical force at will; and can also, in many
instances, attain much more happily, by means of electricity, the very
ends or the best ends which would be aimed at by skillful surgical
operations.
