Rheumatism is in reality an internal inflammation a diseased condition of
the blood cells which supply the nourishment and strength necessary to sus
tain our bodies. Uric acid, an irritating, inflammatory accumulation, gets
into the circulation because of physical irregularities, and then instead of
nourishing and invigorating the body, the blood irritates and inflames the
different nerves, tissues, muscles and joints, because of its impure, acrid
condition. The pains and aches and other disagreeable and dangerous symp
toms of Rheumatism can never be permanently cured until every particle of
the cause is driven from the blood. S. S. S. does this because it is a perfect
blood purifier. It goes down to the very bottom of the trouble, purifies and
cleanses the circulation, invigorates the blood, and completely drives Rheu
matism from the S3-stem. Plasters, liniments, soothing lotions, etc., may
be used for the temporary relief and comfort they bring, but a cure cannot
be effected until S. S. S. has removed the cause. It frees the blood of every
impurity and makes it a rich, health sustaining fluid, to bring permanent
relief and comfort to those who suffer with Rheumatism Book on Rheuma
