me to take Tanlac and I consented.
I have just finished my first bottle,

every way and I aave not had one of
those attacks since I began taking
Tanlac. My nerves are much strong

and heart have been strengthened
and regulated. I have a good ap
petite now, also.

brought a change for the better and

Tanlac worked. I stopped all other
treatment when I began Tanlac. In
