Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There Is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness Is caused by an Inflamed condi
tion of tho mucous lining of the Eusta
chian Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or Imperfect
hcarlnir, and when it Is entirely closed.
Deafness Is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to Its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever: nine
cases out of ten are caused bv Ca:aiTh,
which Is nothing but an Inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
