The same principles must be observed in treating sciatica as in any_ other diseaso if a really permanent cure is looked for. The correct treatment goes a step beyond the relief of tho symptoms, and cures tho cause. Sciatica is a nervous disorder, just like neuralgia. It is often spoken of as neuralgia of the sciatic nerve. One. medical writer of high repute has said it is the cry of tho nerves for food. The complaint indicates that tho nerves ars weak and run down, or laok tone, as the medical man puts it. Sometimes a blow or injury to the leg sets tho trouble going. The affected leg should have as much rest as possible. If the patient can keep to bed or a couch so much the better. Dr Williams' Pink Pills should be given to build up the blood, as it is from the blood the nerves get the " food" the medical writer says they are crying for. Thin blood causes nerves to become weak; building up the blood resfcires_ nerve force. Under Dr Williams' Pink Pills improvement is usually noticed in a short time, and the treatment should be continued until all traces of the complaint have disappeared. You can get Dr_Williams' Pink Pills at your nearest chemist.—[Advt.]
