Poliomyelitis

Bryan Applications, P

Inflammation of the gray matter in the spinal cord is called poliomyelitis. Acute anterior poliomyelitis is better known as infantile paralysis (q.v.). Chronic anterior poliomyelitis resembles progressive muscular atrophy. See: Infantile paralysis..

Application and treatment:

Poliomyelitis is an acute infectious disease of the central nervous system caused by virus invading the anterior horn cells of the spinal cord by way of the digestive tract.

A person may have fever, body uneasiness, and disorders of the breathing and digestive areas which subside after 4 days. Fever may recur in 3 to 6 days, with headache, drowsiness and vomiting – known as the pre-paralytic stage. Then there is muscular pain, excessive skin sensitiveness, and in children, objection to be carried or moved.

Fever subsides after a week and weak muscles set with paralysis and limbs are in trouble. In most cases the lower limbs are affected on one or both sides. Reflexes are lost on the affected side. Recovery begins after one to two weeks. Some are relieved after one year, while others may be left with muscular atrophy and eventual deformity. Use double positive over the entire body for 5 minutes followed by negative polarity on spleen and positive polarity over heart for 3 minutes. Then apply energy to the following: Use frequencies via water pans at 5000 to 10,000 Hz for 30 minutes every three days to give the lymphatic system a chance to function and recover.
