Mag Carb: for Distemper (Allen)

mag carb by Kent ... Thank the universe for this piece!
I would not speak of it but for the fact that it relates to a class of but for the fact that it relates to a class of cases so very important that you will not be able to get along without it. It is related to the older and deeper psoric sickness. [distemper is probably a very old evolutionary disease… unlike humans, dogs haven't developed new fangled ailments yet.]
It is deep acting and long acting and permeates the economy as thoroughly as Sulphur.
Amelioration from motion; desire for open air, yet very sensitive to cold air; wants to be for open air, yet very sensitive to cold air; wants to be covered during all stages of fever;symptoms recurring every twenty-one days. [like clockwork, distemper puppies will die in 21 days no matter what improvement put care they receive. Maybe this remedy will help them over that hump. Give it at the start and them before the 21st day.]
Like other Magnesias it has most violent neuralgic pains along the course of nerves, pains so violent that he cannot keep still, and he moves about violent that he cannot keep still, and he moves about and is relieved by motion. As soon as he stops moving the pain becomes very severe, shooting, tearing.
There is a kind of marasmus that you will puzzle over if you do not know this remedy. If we study the remedy in general, we will see that it produces a state of the body like that prior to tuberculosis.
He does not undergo, repair, he loses flesh, and the muscles become flabby as if some serious disease were coming. In children of tuberculous parents there is that tendency to go into marasmus. The child's muscles are flabby, the child will not thrive in spite of feeding and medicines.
Finally, it emaciates and the back of the head begins to sink in, as if from atrophy of the cerebellum. The to sink in, as if from atrophy of the cerebellum. The appetite increases for milk and meat and animal broths, and yet they are not digested, and when the milk is taken it continually passes the bowel in the form of white potter's clay, or like putty.
I have observed, especially among illegitimate infants,  they have a tendency to sinking in the back of the head. The occipital bone will sink in, and the parietal bones jut out over it, and there will be a depression. That is not an uncommon thing in children that go into marasmus.
I once had in charge an orphanage, where we had sixty to one hundred babies on hand all tho time. The puzzle of my life was to find remedies for the cases that were going into marasmus. A large number cases that were going into marasmus.
The whole year elapsed, and we were losing babies every week from this gradual decline,  until I saw the image of these babies in Magnesia carb, and after that many of them were cured. __
[if this isn't the very picture of distemper, I don't know what is!]
Probably why Mag carb is drawn by Roo…
