Relaxed And Atrophied Conditions





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

I alluded, above, to a distinction between a relaxed and an
atrophied condition of an organ. There is such a distinction, which
should be carefully observed while treating parts so affected. An
atrophied muscle or organ becomes soft and flabby from lack of
nourishment. But this condition is not properly one of relaxation. It
is rather a diminution--a thinning out of atoms, by wasting without
replenishment. Such a condition is always negative, and requires
treatment under the negative pole. On the contrary, relaxed parts, such
as appear in prolapsus uteri, and in the sagging down of the diaphragm,
with the thoracic and abdominal viscera, exhibit no lack of nutrition or
of vital action. Relaxation is a loosening of atoms from each other,
more or less, without loss of aggregate weight; and implies a condition
electrically positive in excess, and calls for treatment with the
positive pole.
