DRS. WYETH and CREAMER, Eclectic
and Electropathic physicians, respectfully offer
their professional services in all the various branches of
the profession, for the treatment of all acute and chronic
forms of disease.
The remedial means they employ in the treatment of
diseath consist of Magnetic Galvanism, Electro-Magnet
ism, the Swislish method of Localized movement care, a
few Ecle.etio medicines when deemed neceseary, _ and in
fact all the natural curative agents that. may, successfully
be brought to bear upon the disease.
They do not wish to be understood as arrogating to
themselves any superiority of professional skill, but they
believe the remedies they employ in the treatment of dis
ease far superior to those generally employed byphysiciens,
from the fact that they act In perfect .harmony with the
laws governing and eentrolling the human system.- To
this, and the factrhat they confine themselves to no par
ticular pathp or system, they Attribute their success In
controlling disease.
The principal agent they employ !lithe treatment, of
disease, namely, Electricity, is'an agent wonderful in its
phenomena and powerful in Its effects for good or ill It
is an ever present, all-pervrding principle, governing all
things, from rolling worlds down to the invisible particles
of gasseous matter.: We sec it in the lightning's flash and
hear the manifestations of its power in-the muttering
thunder. It is the cause of all decomposit4on, recompo
sition and transformation. It excites all motion. It is the
exciting cause of life, growth, decay and death. It
causes secretion, excretion digestion' It lays hold of the
crude food in the stomach , ' converts it into a state of tin
idity,, transmutes it into arterial blood, and sends it on its
important Mice of supplying nutriment according-to the
necessities of ihe body. It Is the nerve vital ny.l 4 , the
great agent through , which the mind acts upon the body.
It is the cause of all causes except the first great catalog
the Infinite Mind which created It sad brought it into use.'
These may appear like mere assertions, but they are
facts,admitting of strong and irresistible proof. Is It then,
to be wondered at that an agent so Wonderful in its phe
nomena, so powerful in its manifestations and so intimate.
ly connected with all the operations of the Mumma sys
tem, shonid be almost absolute In its power of controlling
.disease? Certainly not. It is a natural sequence and
follows as surely as day follows nigtkt.
Among the thsceses 'Which are found to yield readily-to
Electricity, in conjunction with proper adjunct treatment,
.may be mentioned the following; Incipient Consiimption,
:Paralysis, Elpi.liptic,• Hysteric and other Convolsione;
Neuralgia, in Its worst fones,- - Rhuematism, inflammatory
and chronic; all diseases of the nervous system; Dyspep
