of Analyzing the Cause of Human Ills
and how to abolish them is certainly
the most comprehensive and com
mon sense system practiced today.
It is based upon a thorough understanding of the
nervous relations existing between the various organs of
the body. It proves that more than three-quarters of hu
man ills are not DISEASKS at all, but that some organ
of the body is not doing its work properly, because of a
lack of nerve force..
This system also proves that it is possible in nearly
all eases to restore the proper balance of the nervous
system, and all discomfort will cease. An Ophthalmologist
is one who has learned how to measure the amount of
disturbance existing in the nervous system, and how to
remove the cause of the disturbance.
