PHYSIAL WRECK RESTORED TO
HEALTH BY ORtAt KID
Some time ago I began the use of
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root with the most
remarkable results. For years I was almost
a wreck and was a great. sufferer. The doe.
tors who treated me made me believe that
my great sufferings were due to female
trouble. I was so bad at times I would
faint away and had sinking spells.
Finally a new doctor was caled in and
he said thtt I had kidney trouble and
gave me medicine, of which I took sev
eral bottles. I obtained some relief from
this but I was getting weaker all the
time; I could not sleep and suffered so
much pain that my husband and children
had to lift me in and out of bed. After
this timo two friends sent me word to try
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, which I did,
and I ami glad to state that the first dose
gave me reat relief After taking the
third dose X was helped into bed and slept
half of the night.
I took several bottles of Swamp-Root
and -I feel that I owe my life to this
wonderful remedy. The two family doe
tors said that I could not live three
months; my urine was in a terrible con
dition-thick and slimy-and I would have
to be helped in and out of bed ten to
twenty times every night. After taking
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root for two days I
was entirely free from getting up and
could sleep soundly.
