CAUSE AND CURE OF NEURALGIA Nerve Pain Means Nerve Starvation. How Modern Methods Succeed in Curing the Cause of the Disease Instead of Treating the Symptoms, Neuralgia means simply "nerve pain," so" there may be great variation in the character" and intensity of the pain and any nerve in the body may be affected. There are a number of causes of neuralgia, but the most common is a general run-down condition-, of the physical system. The discovery i>£ this fact from reliable statistics led to the new. treatment lor neuralgia which builds up the general health by the tonic treatment, and so disposes of the cause of.the trouble. Persons reduced by acute sickness, or by severe mental or physical strain or by loss of sleep are frequently victims -of neuralgia, and it is common In the case of those suffering from anaemia, or bloodiessness. This brings us very close to the actual cause of neuralgia, which is nerve starvation. The blood, which in normal health carries to the nerves all of their nourishment, is unable to perform this duty satisfactorily when it Is weak and Impure. Build up the blood then, and the neuralgic pains will disappear as the nerves become better nourished. The tonic treatment with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, a blood-making tonic, meets this condition most admirably, as the cure of Mrs Alexander Morris, Lake View and Boulder Leases, Golden Gate, Bhows. "Owing to the trying weather on the Fields I got rather run down. I became subject to attacks of neuralgia, up both sides of my face and through my temples. It always came on at the same hour of the day, and often lasted for three days at a time. My face would ache distressingly with it. My appetite went, right away, I couldn't bear the sight of food. I got very thin, and everyone said how 111 I looked, for I had no colour In my face, only a sallow look and a. weary expression. I'd get up each morning feeling so thoroughly tired out that I dreaded to get up, and I'd be drovrey and heavy while my limbs seemed too weak to hold mc. My feet and hands were generaly' cold and clammy. I'd have to lie about all the time. I had no energy or wish to do anything. Three boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills brought back tny strength. I kept on with them when I found that the first box did mc so much good. I found that I could eat better, and the weariness began to go. Before I had finished the second box the neuralgic attacks got less and I had a better colour. Now my health Is very good." The price is 3/ per box, 6 boxes 16/6, and if you' have trouble In getting them, send a postal note for the amount to the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co. of. Australasia, Ltd., Wellington, and they will be sent , post free by return mall. ,v ~
