A healthy man usually evacuates about 30-40 ozs. of
urine daily, the excretion being greater in the winter than in the
summer, owing to the checked perspiration. The urine should be of a
pale straw colour and transparent. Where any irregularity in the urine,
either in quantity or quality, is suspected, it is wise to use soft
boiled or distilled water only, for drinking, and to take frequent sips
of it throughout the day, and especially early in the morning. Either
pure hot water, hot water and lemon juice, or whey, will help the
action of the kidneys when this is sluggish.
Where the bladder is irritated and painfully sensitive, a large hot
BRAN POULTICE (see) should be applied to the lower back. While the
patient lies on this, cold towels (see Towels, Cold Wet) should be
changed over the bladder in front. While giving such treatment once or
twice a day, rest must be taken, if a cure is to be obtained. For a
patient to say that rest cannot be had, is to say that cure is
Where there is a tendency to stoppage of the urine, a warm sitz-bath
should be taken. The patient first sits in three inches deep of
comfortably hot water. More water at the same temperature is poured
gradually in at intervals, until it rises well up over the abdomen.
This will usually relieve even a bad case.
Treat with bran poultice and cold towels, as above recommended, after
the warm bath has given relief. It should be remembered that the cold
is the healing power, bracing the bladder and all its muscles and
vessels. Hence more than a slight cooling is needed. But the cooling is
only possible when good heat is kept up on the base of the back. This
treatment also cures the swelling of the bladder which often
accompanies restriction of urine.
Where a positive growth interferes with the urinary discharge, this may
often be actually melted away by soaking with weak ACETIC ACID
(see), when it is at all possible to reach it. The power of cure
possessed by acetic acid is incredible, except to those who have seen
it exercised, and its persistent use would, we are use, save many
lives, if people would only try it.
We would also advise the four-ply flannel bandage, with two plies damp
and two dry. This round the body has a wonderfully soothing effect. So
has a nicely applied lathering with SOAP (see). As in most other
troubles, special care must be taken to keep the feet warm.
