Moschus What James Tyler Kent says: Moschus cures many hysterical girls who have come to adult age without ever learning what obedience means. - They are self-willed, obstinate and selfish. - When they have been encouraged to resort to crafty cunning, to have every whim gratified from infancy to eighteen years of age they become fit subjects for Mosch., Asaf., Ignatia and Valer.
Moschus - They not only have volumes of real and imaginary symptoms, but they become adepts at producing at will a kaleidoscopic complex of symptoms, increasing in quantity and intensity until all their own desires are attained, and the onlooker, be he or she nurse, physician or bewildered mother, is overwhelmed, dismayed and in retreat. - However much they pretend to be honest and truthful their reported sensations are untrustworthy.
Moschus - They have traded upon their sensations and imagination so long that a direct effort to give a truthful statement is unsuccessful. - The most erratic and unexpected neuropathic phenomena are always in appearance. - The physician cannot measure these cases by his experience and say what is common and uncommon. - He is compelled to fall back upon the one word that covers a multitude of these manifestations viz., "Hysteria"
