liil SYSTEM DERANGED
I The entire inner portion of the body Is covered with mucous membrane ;
this membranous tissue is abundantly supplied with blood vessels, veins,
arteries, and capillaries. Each of these is constantly supplying to this tissue
or lining, blood to nourish and strengthen it and keep the system Healthy.
When the blood becomes infected with catarrhal matter it is not able to fur
nish the required amount of healthful properties, but feeds the parts with
Impurities which disease the membranes and tissues so that they become
Irritated and inflamed, and Catarrh, with all its disagreeable and dangerous
ymptoms, is established in the system. There is a constant ringing in the
. ears, a thinwatery discharge from the nostrils, the breath has an offensive
odor, sllsrht fever often accompanies the disease, and gradually the entire
health becomes affected and the system upset and deranged. In its earlier
stages, when Catarrh is confined to the nose and throat, sprays, washes,
inhalations, etc., are soothing and in a way beneficial, because they are
cleanly and usually antiseptic, but such, treatment has no curative effect,
because it does not reach the blood. To cure Catarrh the blood must be pur
ified, and this is just what S. S. S does. It
eoes down into the circulation and attacks
the disease at its foundation ; it removes the
cause and makes the blood pure and healthy.
Then the blood vessels are filled with fresh.
reinvigorated blood, which is carried to all
the mucous surfaces and linings, the inflam
mation and irritation are corrected, the symp
toms all disappear; the health Is improved and Catarrh is permanently cured.
