An acute fever occurring in tropical and subtropical countries, and particularly in the Americas and Africa, yellow fever is also known as black vomit and yellow jack. American physicians believe the disease is due to a filterable virus, but the British profession believe (or believed) it is caused by a microorganism, Leptospira icteroides (discovered in Ecuador by the Japanese scientist, Hideyo Noguchi, of the Rockefeller Institute). This consists of a fine filament thrown into a very fine spiral formation.
It is carried by a mosquito known as Stegomyia fasciata, or Aedes argenteus (Aedes aegypti). If this insect bites a person suffering from yellow fever during the first three days of the illness, it will very probably pick up the infection, and after an interval of twelve days will inject the organisms into any person it may chance to bite.
The incubation period lasts from three to five days, and the disease usually begins abruptly, though sometimes the patient may have been out of sorts for a day or two. The temperature shoots up, and there is headache and perhaps pain in muscles and in the joints of the legs. The face is flushed and the eyes injected. There is uneasiness or pain in the pit of the stomach and perhaps vomiting. The pulse is raised more or less in correspondence with the temperature.
Albumin may appear in the urine as early as the second day.
On the second or third day there is a decline in the severity of the symptoms and, in favorable cases, this may go on to recovery, but in other cases there is again a rise of temperature, and a return of the vomiting which increases in severity; the vomited matter containing altered blood and constituting the so-called black vomit; Large quantities of albumin may be present in the urine, which may become very scanty.
It is a remarkable fact, however, that though the temperature may be stationary or even rising, the pulse rate drops, perhaps as much as 20 per minute in a space of 24 hours. Jaundice becomes apparent when the face loses its flush at the re-mission and increases in intensity from day to day. Death is commonest about the sixth or seventh day, and may be due to sudden heart failure, toxemia or uremia. When the patient recovers convalescence is slow.
The incidence of yellow fever has been considerably diminished by preventing the access of mosquitoes to water in the neighborhood of dwellings. The stegomyia lives in or near dwellings and in coastal or riverside regions. Houses that are known to harbor the insect should be thoroughly fumigated. People suffering from the disease should be screened so that mosquitoes may be unable to get at them. A person who has suffered from yellow fever is rendered immune, but during an outbreak others should receive preventive inoculations.
As regards those who are suffering from the disease, perhaps the condition may be halted if they receive injections of Noguchi serum during the first day or two of the disease; after the third day the serum does not seem to have any effect. The treatment otherwise is largely that of fever (q.v.) and of the troublesome symptoms.
Application and treatment:
Treat as infectious disease. Standard treatment regimen via water pans is suggested, at 72 hour intervals. Expect rapid recovery. Detoxify as needed, especially if symptoms worsen the day following the first few sessions. This is normal, and will pass, when it does, the patient will be much improved, and fever will be reduced or gone.
In general it is thought that to stimulate an area, apply positive. To dilate use positive, to contract, use negative. However, since it is a basic tenet of polarity theory that the hemispheres are of a fixed polarity, (left negative, right positive), you will have to experiment to determine how best to follow these rules in your given situation.
For instance, a common method of applying polarity calls for the negative pad to be placed over the sacrum, and the appropriate vertebrae receive the positive pad. Another method involves placing the negative pad on the left side of the vertebrae the positive on the right, so that there is an inch or so of space between the pads. Still another method is to apply one pad to the opposite side of the appropriate vertebrae from that of the area you are targeting, and allowing the positive pad to be moved all around the region that is being treated. The various materials we have received on this subject contain data that is inconsistent or contradictory.
…for this we apologize. The theory behind polarizing the body is based on Rife’s observations wherein he determined that by using negative polarity on the left side of the body, and positive polarity on the right, microorganisms cease to reproduce There is certainly a perceptible value in that observation.
When we apply this idea to frequency therapy, we might begin and end our sessions left negative, right positive. The Polarity switch that is provided on the Auditor allows the user to alternate the polarity as many times as seems appropriate, within a session, and during use of each frequency. Doing so literally reverses the direction of the flow of electrons, and it is reasonable to assume that this procedure will make the frequency session more effective.
When an injury is encountered, electrons collect around the injury forming masses of negative and positive polarity. If the local force of electrons is predominantly negative, it is likely that an infection will prevent the healing. _ If predominantly positive, healing will proceed. The use of polarity provides the positive polarity in, great force which overcomes the negative and changes it to positive… Application of polarity has shown to be of great benefit even in as little as five minutes time using positive on the right side of the body and negative on the left side – all up and down the body.
In addition, the male is positive the female k negative in the genitalia, the following applies to both male and female.
