Description

Excerpt from On the Diagnosis and Treatment of the Varieties of Dyspepsia: Considered in Relation to the Pathological Origin of the Different Forms of Indigestion The use of purgative and tonic remedies in the treatment of dyspeptic disturbances, is the direct result of such views as the foregoing regarding their nature and origin; and the manner in which either of these classes of remedies has been employed has depended on the predominance, for the most part, of one or other of the hypotheses to which I have here alluded. It is true, indeed, that many writers since the days of Celsus and Morgagni have recognised various organic diseases of the stomach. The theories, however, which they entertained respecting the origin of these and of their influence on digestion, tended in great measure to a one-sidedness both in pathology and treatment, and rendered the distinction and diagnosis of the disorders of digestion a matter of considerable difficulty. Many of the classifications of the disturbances of digestion included under the title of dyspepsia, have, on the other hand, been based upon an ontological foundation, by which this condition was regarded as a distinct disease, and the place consequently assigned to it in nosological treatises has varied with the pathological views entertained by the authors of these systems.
