Daily Health Talks
A Single Remedy Often Cures
Many Diseases
, By Valentine Mott, M. D.
It is almost impossible to give a
list of the endless diseases that fol
low indigestion. Perhaps a whole
column in this newspaper would be
required to print them all. You j
eat to keep alive to supply blood
and flesh and bone and muscle and
brain. It is easy to see that if your
food is not digested and taken up
By the delicate organs and distrib
uted where it is needed, a disease
of some sort is sure to come. Dys
pepsia is a common symptom, and'
so are liver complaint, loss of flesh,
nervousness, bad memory, dizziness,
sleeplessness, no appetite. Many
times, when neglected, indigestion
results in coughs, throat diseases,
catarrh, bronchitis and even more
dangerous things. And all these
disorders arise because the food is
not properly digested in the stom
ach. It is plain even to a child
that relief and cure are to be had
only by setting up a healthy condi
tion in the stomach. Dr. Pierce,
of Buffalo, N. Y., many years ago
combined a .number of vegetable
growths into a temperance remedy
for indigestion, and called it Golden
Medical Discovery. It is probably
the most efficacious discovery ever
made in medicine, for the list of
people all over th world who have
had their countless ills overcome by j
Dr. Pierce's Golden Modioal Dis
covery makes an amazing total of J
I know of no advice better than
this: Begin a home treatment today
With this good vegetable medicine.
It will show you better than I can
tell you what it will do. "When tak
ing Golden Medical Discovery, you
can rest assured of one very im
portant thing it contains neither
alcohol nor opiates. There is noth
ing in it but standard roots and
herbs that possess curative prop
erties of a high order. A safe medi
cine is the only kind you can af
ford to take.
