A CHANGE OF FOOD CLEANS TIIE SOIL'S
When the body is clogged up by the use of 'Im
proper food and sickncss sets In there is nothing
so gcod as a "house cleaning" and the right way
to do this is to change the food, for although tak
ing medicines may afford temporary relief a com
plete cLange of food is mueh the surest and safest
The highest medical authority in the world, "The
Lancet" of London, says of Grape-Nuts: "Our
analysis shows it is a nutritive of a high order
since it contains the constituents of a complete
food in very satisfactory ami rich proportion and in
an easily assimilable state." "About two years
ago," says a resident of Springfield, Ind., "I had
terrible stomach trouble and although I tried all
kinds of medicines none of them cured me. I was
?o run down 1 co?ld not eat, got very little sle;*p.
and wax dlzxv-heade?l and miserable all of th.? time.
About that tim? a friend told m? that the only way
to cure my trouble was to change my food and
"From my very tirst meal of Grape-Nuts my
stomach began to get better and all the Improve
ments that come from a healthy stomach in place
of an unhealthy one soon followed, and this was
not all. for just as great an Improvement came
in my brain. All of the dizziness is gone and my
brain is now clear and active. I can eat anything
I want, sleep well and am altogether a new man
mentally and physically.
