"For ten years I had been constant?

the forehead and temples, which great?
ly interferred with Sny work and made
my life miserable. I consulted the best
talent available without the slightest
benefit. I was treated hy one special?

prints was such a strain on my sight
that I had to give it up every few
hours. It almost drove rr.e to distrac?

paying for it dearly afterward.
"Two years ago I had an attack
which resembled vertigo. I thought
that there was some organic trouble,
and consulted my phy.?ician. After a
thorough examination, he declared
a bilious condition was responsible
for the attack and treated me accord?

so severe, continued for several weeks.
When they ceased the old dizziness
and pains remained.
"Then, about six or seven weeks
ago. another severe attack of the same
nature was experienced. I felt my?
self staggering wlldlv. as if some irre?
sistible force was trying to throw me
to the ground. That time I saved my?
self from a bad fall by leaning against
the wall until the spell passed. For
three weeks these ?targering spells
continued. T?ey oftep came upon me

that I have not had a single attack
since he first applied his method and
