DYSTOCIA


DYSTOCIA. The best and quickest action, in a remedy well selected in high potency, is seen in the most alarming emergency cases, in a few moments, and seldom needs to be repeated. If there is no change after the remedy has been administered, the proper remedy has not been given. The time between remedies is a matter of judgment according to the emergency, may be a few moments to one-half hour.


About 1928, while my family and I were driving through various parts of Kansas on our summer vacation trip, I stopped and called on Dr. W.A. Yingling at Emporia. He was then still quite active, alert and enthusiastic, though past eighty years of age. His office was not pretentious, but nice. As I recall, he told me that he had been bankrupt and was just then paying off his last obligations. He also stated that his original home was at Findlay, Ohio, and he knew number of people that I knew, all of which was a great surprise and thrill to me as Findlay was my home county town. I can still see the genteel gentleman in my minds eye and am thrilled and inspired each time I think of this interview.

In Biblical forecast from the beginning of mans sojourn upon this earth, we read:

“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children.” Gen. 3:16.

The original ovum and sperm each contain characteristics of parent or donor at time of fusion and mitosis, and modify each other, and are carried as such through their entire development. The characteristics of both are thus inherent in the new body.+”and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the childrens children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.” Ex.34:7.

The obstetrician, if conscientious, can save himself and his patient a great deal of distress and worry if he knows, or acquaints himself with, the effect of the application of the various indicated homoeopathic remedies on the various cases of pregnancy and accouchment for which he is responsible. The remedy, like magic, will transfer real pain into the the expulsive force of labor without undue suffering.

Dr. W.A. Yingling says: “While most irregularities of labor cases can be controlled by he remedy alone, it will not enlarge the bony structure, nor remove malformations, congenital, or induced by the manner of living, nor will it instantaneously remove the effect of local morbid growths, cancer, etc. Common sense discrimination must be exercised. The cases without the sphere of action of the Homoeopathic remedy are comparatively few. We have a universal law, and in no class of cases will the prescriber get better or quicker results than in those of labor.” The symptoms of your patient are outstanding at this time. She is calling for her remedy which the accoucheur will see, providing he knows his remedies.

Yingling again states that it is the only means whereby abnormal labor may be made as natural as the condition and circumstance will permit. It will not change the bony structure, but it will restore the soft parts to a normal condition, unless otherwise prevented, often magically indeed. In emergency cases, Nature speaks plainly, the more danger the more plainly, and the more speedily will the homoeopathic remedy act. But the remedy must be well selected.

The best and quickest action, in a remedy well selected in high potency, is seen in the most alarming emergency cases, in a few moments, and seldom needs to be repeated. If there is no change after the remedy has been administered, the proper remedy has not been given. The time between remedies is a matter of judgment according to the emergency, may be a few moments to one-half hour. Change or repeat only after a reasonable length of time. A true Similia prescription will act promptly and it is usually easy to tell whether or not the proper remedy has been selected.

The symptoms of location frequently furnish quite characteristic symptoms, and they deserve particular attention, since every remedy acts more, and more decidedly, on certain parts of the organism. When dealing with an acute condition we must limit ourselves to dealing with an acute state alone and not at the same time attempt to dip into what has been a chronic state.

Acute manifestations show themselves with surprising clearness as a rule.
