A new linguistic style.
The author, Vernon M Neppe MD, PhD, has communicated via an unusual paragraph style: the
conversagraph. How do we provide paragraphs for dialogue? Do we deliberately create different
paragraphs for every dialogue portion even when we use no quotation marks as in this book? Or do we
introduce conversagraphs where the relevant dialogue on a single topic remains in the same paragraph.
The following are examples from the book:
These are examples of dialogue that continues through two dialogue sessions and
when there is a theme change, a new conversagraph is started:
How long has she been this way?
For a couple of days. She was at home until this evening. You
can see she is dehydrated-look how dry her skin is. Part of this
fluid deficiency is her not drinking water and the other side
is her diarrhea. I think her diarrheal soiling may be because
of her non-caring.
What do you mean, Doctor?
She's in a state where she totally neglects herself. She doesn't
move and cannot care even for such functions as excretion of body
fluids. Without treatment, Priscilla would die in a week or less.
So what should be done?
The two conversagraphs above can be contrasted with a single conversagrah below:
We will give her very high doses of the specific B vitamins that
she's deficient in-thiamine and nicotinic acid in large amounts,
several thousand milligrams through an intravenous line.
We need to give her nothing else? What about strong psychiatric drugs?
No. Ed. We're treating the actual cause. Watch for a miracle.
This is remarkable, Doctor! But why does Pellagra happen?
Because the brain's biochemical pathways are not able to perform
what should be done. The specific deficiency is niacin, and previously
in the deep south in the United States, where it was prevalent
in the 1920s, this B vitamin was actually called "pellag
ra preventive factor". As you saw, Edward, Priscilla had
totally slowed down to an absolute statue, until we could give
her the right fuels to re-invigorate her.
