Even In Its Wont 9tas
There Is probably no disorder tn the- lurt
of stomach ailments so prevalent ms Ca
tarrh of the Stomach. This disease 1
often caused by an Irrational mode of liv
ing: fast eating, resulting In Imperfect
mastication of the food: overloading tne
stomach with too large quantities of
rich or hlchlv spiced dishes; Ice-cold or
strong alcoholic drinks; the abuse of to
bacco, especially chewing, all ten to Irn
tat the stomach, and to cause catarrhal
condition of the digestive organs.
Ecn people of regular habits may de
velop gastric catarrh. An. unhealthy con
dition of the mouth, and more so of the
teeth, is liable to produce the disease. De
cause the food cannot be chewed thor
oughly and becomes sour. As a rule the
disease develops slowly, the appetite be
comes variable, a sensation of fullness
after meals, palpitation of the heart and
shortness of breath is experienced, also a.
burning sensation at the pit of the stom
ach, bad taste In the mouth. and.Yomltirur
or nausea after morning1 meal. There Is
considerable headache, a heavy. feeling; In

one can taVe at their own home without
consultation and under guarantee to cure.
