Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ... be directed to the nervous system, by habit, diet, physical and mental exercise, and general moral influences. Regular daily bowel movements should be secured by very slight use of cathartics, considerable use of drinking fluids, and diet that leaves a large residue. Baths (medicated) twice weekly are very helpful. I have made some patients happy and helpful to themselves, by urging them to return to their regular business, which have been stopped by other physicians. Clysters, and high rectal and colonic irrigations, aid wonderfully in evacuating the mucus. Intestinal antiseptics (HgCl2), slight massage and long rests at night are beneficial. Much moral influence and helpful courage is given a patient, when he is told he will not die from the trouble; for thought concenstrated on the disease makes him much worse--produces pathologic physiology--particularly because he is almost always a neurotic. Electricity aids physically and mentally. Sexual activity should be especially limited. Clothing should be carefully regulated to avoid sudden changes. CONCLUSIONS. 1. These diseases should be termed secretion-neurosis or enteritis. The first is of neurotic origin and course. 2. Both secretion-neurosis and enteritis may co-exist. 3. Secretion-neurosis of the colon occurs chiefly in neurotic females. 4. It is closely associated with genital disease. 5. It is frequently preceded by constipation. 6. The continuation of the disease is partly due to an irritable, vicious habit of excessive epithelial activity. 7. The disease is characterized by colicky pains with the evacuation of mucous masses. 8. It is non-fatal, variable, capricious and erratic in attacks, with impossible prognosis as to time. 9. Microscopically, the evacuations appear as membranous,...
