INDEX

The idea, the remembrance of its being a _danger_, and the determination 

to wake, closely united the evening before, were never dissociated even 

in sleep, and he awoke in time; and this reiterated precaution, repeated 

during some evenings, absolutely cured the complaint." 

 

Several other cases of the same kind have been recorded. Doubtless the 

plan would be found successful in many cases when coupled with a proper 

regimen. 

 

A still greater control is exerted over the thoughts during sleep by 

their character during hours of wakefulness. By controlling the mind 

during entire consciousness, it will also be controlled during 

unconsciousness or semi-consciousness. 

 

Dr. Acton makes the following very appropriate remarks on this 

subject:-- 

 

"Patients will tell you that they _cannot_ control their dreams. This 

is not true. Those who have studied the connection between thoughts 

during waking hours and dreams during sleep know that they are closely 

connected. The _character_ is the same sleeping or waking. It is not 

surprising that, if a man has allowed his thoughts during the day to 

rest upon libidinous subjects, he should find his mind at night full 

of lascivious dreams--the one is a consequence of the other, and the 

nocturnal pollution is a natural consequence, particularly when 

diurnal indulgence has produced an irritability of the generative 

organs. A will which in our waking hours we have not exercised in 

repressing sexual desires, will not, when we fall asleep, preserve us 

from carrying the sleeping echo of our waking thought farther than we 

dared to do in the day-time." 

 

Bathing.--A daily bath is indispensable to health under almost all 

circumstances; for patients of this class, it is especially necessary. 

A general bath should be taken every morning immediately upon rising. 

General _cold bathing_ is not good for any person, especially in the 

morning, though some may tolerate it remarkably well, being of 

exceptionally hardy constitutions; but the advice to try "cold bathing" 

often given to sufferers from seminal weakness, is very pernicious, 

for most of them have been reduced so low in vitality by their disease 

that they cannot endure such violent treatment. 

 

Sun baths, electric baths, spray, plunge, and other forms of bath, are 

of greatest value to those suffering from the effects of indiscretions. 

These are described, with additional observations concerning 

temperature of baths, etc., etc., in works devoted to this subject. 

 

Improvement of General Health.--Patients suffering from emissions and 

other forms of seminal weakness are almost always dyspeptic, and most 

of them present other constitutional affections which require careful 

and thorough treatment according to the particular indications of the 

case. The wise physician will not neglect these if he desires to cure 

his patient and make his recovery as complete as possible. 

 

Prostitution as a Remedy.--Said a leading physician in New York to us 

when interrogated as to his special treatment of spermatorrhoea, "When 

a young man comes to me suffering from nocturnal emissions, I give him
