An involuntary or undue contraction of a muscle is described as a spasm. It may occur in involuntary or voluntary muscles, and the usual cause is irritation of the nerve cells or nerves supplying the muscle. If the contraction is sustained the spasm is said to be a tonic one, but if contractions and relaxation rapidly succeed one another it is said to be clonic. When spasm is more or less general over the body the occurrence is called a convulsion or a fit. A localized spasm, when painful, is called a cramp: The stiff or sticky gait observed in paraplegia is described as a spastic gait and is due to chronic excess of tone in the paralyzed muscles.
Application and treatment:
After vigorous exercising or in swimming, chills and pressure changes brought on, painful cramps may occur. Sciatic nerve passes along the lower back to the buttocks and the backs of the thighs before going into the lower legs and controls the muscles the muscles of the calves. Malfunction of the sciatic nerve causes back pain and calf cramps which can become chronic.
A hot towel or a hot air dryer will relieve minor cramps. Major cramps should be removed by use of polarity – applying positive first and alternate with negative for 5 to 30 minutes. First press with both pads. Then press in on the other points with thumbs or use polarity to control the sciatic nerve. Repeated and forceful pressure on the big toes is effective.
Cramps caused by the bends may require additional forces to relieve the negative polarity stress of compressing negative poisons of the body into the joints. Polarity may be of great aid in relieving pain with the alternate use of the positive direction and the negative direction of polarity to the affected areas of pain.
A cramp is a muscular contraction and to offset this force, in general, use the negative and the positive on both sides at the same time in some cases. It may follow by loss of much water and salt.
To relieve the salt deficiency take 1/2 teaspoon of whey (organic sodium) and 1/2 teaspoon of rice polishings (organic potassium) in 1/2 glass of polarized positive water. The nerves of the body are 50% sodium and 50% potassium so that any deficiency will be readily helped. When working and sweating in warm areas, this drink may be taken oftener to avoid fatigue and salt loss.
Convulsion is a violent involuntary series of contractions of the voluntary muscles coming from hysteria, infantile disorder of early infancy, a lesion of the central nervous system and other spasms from infections or disorders such as; epilepsy, asphyxia (suffocation and coma), (worms in the brain), poisoning, lockjaw, (tetanus bacteria), hydrophobia (rabies), apoplexy (brain stroke or hemorrhage), meningitis (inflammation of the 3 membranes that envelope the brain), head injuries, nutritional deficiency, slow pulse from brain anemia (blood is deficient in quantity or quality of red blood cells) in the brain, indigestion, worms, rickets, diarrhea, breath holding in children, and fever.
Try electromagnetic polarization to control all of the above. Use positive over entire body followed by negative on spleen and positive over heart for 3 minutes. For systemic regeneration use 5000 to 10,000 Hz for 30 minutes. A piece of wood placed between the teeth will prevent him from biting. If vomiting, place him on his side. Loosen his clothing around neck and chest. When recovering, assure him that he will be OK again.
