Superstitions About Rheumatism
There is a good deal of isuperstithm in regard to the treatment of rheumatism. There are shops where magic rheumatic rings can be purchased ; while some sufferers are content to carry some supposed charm in a pocket. Superstitions in regard to rheumatism probably persist because they are many things that are still unknown about rheumatism, from a medical standpoint. The treatment of it is still far from satisfactory. Doctors realise this, but nobody is more fully aware of it than the sufferers themselves. A tendency to rheumatism once established, the pain often returns with every change, of weather, showing that the poison is still in the blow] awaiting favorable conditions to become active and cause trouble. One fact is known and acknowledged, by all medical writers, and that is the rapid thinning of the blood when the rheumatic poison invades it. Building up the blood is the best remedy for rheumatism, as the enriched ' blood is able to overcome or thiwv off the poisons of the disease. For this reason rheumatic sufferers should be interested in the success which Dr Williams' Pink Pills have had in the treatment of this painful disease. They increase the blood supply and impart energv, and sufferers have proved that through a" course of them the system has been enabled to throw off the rheumatic poison. They have also noted that the complaint did not return with the next damp weather. Dr Williams 1 Pink Pills aro sold bj all dealers everywhere.—
