Children are very sensitive to external stimuli. Whether it comes to environment or climate conditions, emotional stress, strong fright or excessive joy, overplay in the park or envy with the little brother or sister and so on; but the impact on the delicate little organism might be severe. Especially with the uro-genital system the consequences should not be underestimated.
The little children often will not be able to tell what or whether it hurts, how and when the pains appear, is there a burning at the beginning or at the end of urination etc. This is the biggest trap before the accurate treatment. Moreover, in some cases the child will not be able to pass urine at all. Some of the children will scream before passing urine, others will tell they have no urge to go to the toilet. It is possible that the quantity of fluids they drink doesn’t change during the day but there is only but little micturition.
The second part of the article for spasmodic retention of urine continues the exposure of the most prominent remedies for retention of urine due to spasmodic disorders or paralysis of the bladder.
Stoppage of urine may arise as a consequence from some urinary disorders caused by mechanical injury, inflammation of the kidneys, kidney stones, stricture of urine passages, inflammation of the bladder or of the urethra, paralysis of the bladder, enlargement of the prostate gland etc. The urine comes out in drops or doesn’t come out at all; there is violent burning pain in the urethra, swelling and heaviness of the bladder, frequent but ineffectual urging for urination, febrile symptoms. There may be present accompanying complaints from other organs and systems in the body, like headache, nausea, retching, vomiting, colic pains in the abdomen, distention of the abdomen, kidney colic and others.

It has deep profound action on the human organism, marked with many twitching, spasms, convulsions, dizziness and weakness.
“The constant straining and desire for a stool are caused by inflammation of the large intestine, and not by the presence of faeces as in a healthy person; this disease is not, as commonly believed, diarrhea, but just the reverse, it is constipation.”
