Example text

The faculty is completely lacking in neurasthenic patients. We will now outline the exercises we use to help patients acquire the ability to concentrate. Exercise No. 1 At first, trying to concentrate on an idea is too difficult. So the first exercise consists of mentally following a curved line, for example a figure eight or the geometric sign of infinity. It is hard to imagine that such a simple exercise can present any problems, yet many patients are incapable of doing it correctly. Chapter 8 Page 57 If the exercise is carried out properly, a double regular wave pattern will be felt through hand contact; if done incorrectly, you will feel interruptions in the wave pattern, almost always occurring as the patient reaches the outer edges of the curves.

Chapter 6 Page 44 Chapter 6: Controlling actions Learning to control actions is the first step in re-educating the brain; it the simplest way to achieve this and, although it may often seem almost childish at first, it does provide appreciable results.

Pain varies in intensity and form: patients sometimes feel as if they are about to explode - the skull feels too small to contain the pressure; or they may feel as if a steel band were being progressively tightened around their head. One patient described it as feeling like a violin string which has been tuned too tightly, and which vibrates with pain. Chapter 4 Page 38 Fatigue is a perfectly normal result, considering the extreme tension; this cannot go on indefinitely, and when it stops patients experience intense fatigue, which they end up fearing as much as the pain itself.
