THE ELECTRO CHEMICAL BATH,
DIRECT 8t TO & FRO ELECTRO MAGNETIC MACHINE,
I A MRS HAKIMS. Ei.KcrHirr.iN", of Towanda, re-poct
fully informs the public that he has lately procured
from New York the celebrated Electro-*'heuiical Bath,
which has proven to he one of the in i-t "important and
wonderful discoveries of tin" ape, from its ability to extract
minerals from the human -y-tem.
Some eipht years ago. a physician of Cincinnati disco
vered tiie process of extracting minerals from the body,
by galvanism 5 more recently, M. Verges, of New York,
an electro-gilder. having suffered from the introduction of
poisonous minerals into bis sy.-tem in the prosecution of
his art. conceived the idea of removing them by the same
processes, he succeeded in doing so. and quickly recovered.
He then applied the same means to others similarly af
fected, with like results. His success exceeded his most
sanguine expectations, for not only did these Baths remove
mineral poisons, hut cured many diseases, some of which
were the result of minerals, and some were not.
More recent experiments have fully confirmed the sin
gular power of this Bath to draw from the system all mi
nerals that may lie lodged therein, to tin- great detriment
of health. Very often persons are atllieteil ly diseases
which are bcyoud the comprehension of the most skilful
physicians, and hich are the effect of poisonous mine
rals accumulating in the system lor years, taken in the
shape ot calomel, lead. Ac. Ac.
The following are some of the disease- cured by these
baths: Hhcumutism, Paralysis, Palsy, Painter's i 'lodic,
Chronic fleers, Glandular Swellings. Scrofula. Cancer,
Xeuralia in all its forms, Salt Kheuui and llumors of ail
Ho has also S. B. Smith'sncwlv invented BIRKCT AND
TO-AN I> EUO KI.K< TKO M AGXETIC MAC IIIN E, which
is a great iniprovcinent on the Magnetic machine- hereto
fore in use. With the aid of the Bath and Machine, we
have at command all the available medical efficiency of
Electricity. The medical power of the Machine is vcrv
great, in introducing medicines into the system through
the pore- of the skin—applying it directly to the parts af
fected, which gives an increase of medicinal power over
that ol taking it into the stomach,rendering it particular
ly efficacious in all local disease*.
I am now prepared to apply these Baths, and also the
Mae hi iws, at my house in the south part of the borough
of Towanda, or 1 will visit patients at a distance, who are
unable by reason of disease to come to this place, at mo
I am also sole ageut for Bradford county, for the above
