WASH THE KIDNEYS!
All the blood in the body passes thru
the kidneys every few minutes. This is
vhy the kidneys play such an important
role in health or (lisease. By some mys
terious process the kidney selects what
)ught to come out of the blood and
takes it out. If the kidneys are not
ood-workmen and become congested
polsons accumulate and we suitor from
backache, headache, lumbago, rheu
natisn or gout. The urine is often
loudy, full of sediment ; channels often
:et sore and sleep is (listurhed at night.
So it is that Dr. Pierce, of the Invalids'
lotel and Surgical Institute in Buffalo,
N. Y., advises "Washing the Kidneys,"
)y drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals and then if you want
to take a harmless medlicne that will
dear the channels and cure the annoy
ing symptoms, go to your druggist and
et Anuric (double strength), for -Oc.
'his "Anuric," which is so many times
inore potent than lithia-will drive out
the uric acild poisons and bathe the kid
teys and channels in a soothing liquid.
If you desire, write for free medical
idvice and send sample of water for
ree examination. Experience has
:aught Doctor Pierce that "Anuric" is
i most powerful agent in dissolving
inc aid. ns hot water melts sugar.
Send Dr. Pierce 101e for trial package.
