Take a Glass of Salts to Flush Kidneys
If Bladder Bothers You—Drink
Lots of Water.
Eating meat regularly eventually
kidney trouble in some form
or other, says a well-known authority,
because the uric acid in meat excites
the kidneys, they bei-ouie overworked;
get sluggish; clog uj» and i-ause all sorts
* of distress, particularly backache and
misery in the kidney region; rheumatic
twinges, severe headaches, acid stom
ach, constipation, torpid liver, sleepless
ness, bladder and urinary irritation.
The moment your back hurts or kid
neys aren't acting right, or if bladder
bothers you. get about four ounces of
Jad Salts from any good pharmacy;
take a tablespoon t'ul in a glass of water
before breakfast for a few days and
your kidneys will then act fine. This
famous salts is made from the acid of
grapes and lemon juice, combined with
lithia. and has been used for genera
tions to Hush clogged kidneys and
1 stimulate them to normal activity; al
so to neutralize the acids in the urine
so it no longer irritates, thns ending
bladder disorders.
•lad.. Salts cannot injure anyone:
makes a delightful eft'erv escent lithia
water drink which millions of men and
women take now and then to keep the
kidneys and urinary organs clean, thus
avoiding serious kidney disease.
