Now, a* a rule, pa tients with varicose veins are ad vised to walk as little as possible, but Dr. Marchals has changed all this and as the result of experiments be ha* successfully carried out on twen ty-one patients he asserts that tbs moat effective cure tor varicose vein* In the legs consists of walking. He shows that. In order to obtain lasting results, It Is necessary to go back to the cause of the affliction, which Is the hypertension of the blood In the veins. It Is, be says, possible even for those badly af flicted to cure themselves by rational daily walking exercises, preceded by massage of the legs. Keeping the Funnier Efforts.
