Every drop of blood in the body passes through and is filtered by healthy kidneys every three minutes. Sound
kidneys strain out the impurities from the blood, diseased kidneys do not, hence you are sick. FOLEY’S KIDNEY
CURE makes the kidneys well so they will eliminate the poisons from the blood. It removes the cause of the
many diseases resulting from disordered kidneys which have allowed your whole system to become poisoned.
Rheumatism, Bad Blood, Gout, Gravel, Dropsy, Inflammation of the Bladder, Diabetes and Bright’s Disease, H
and many others, are all due to disordered Kidneys. A simple test for Kidney disease is to set aside your urine
in a bottle or glass for twenty-four hours. If there is a sediment or a cloudy appearance.it indicates that your
kidneys are diseased, and unless something is done they become more and more affected until Bright’s Disease
or Diabetes develops.
FOLEY’S KIDNEY CURE is the only preparation which will positively cure all forms of Kidney and
Bladder troubles, and cure you permanently. It is a safe remedy and certain in results.
If You are a sufferer, take FOLEY’S KIDNEY CURE at onoe. It will make you well.
Some Pronounced Incurable Had Lumbago and Kidney Trouble
Mr. G. A. Stillson, a merchant of Tampico, 111., writes: “FOLEY’S Edward Huss, a well known business man of Salisbury,Mo., writs*:
KIDNEY CURE is meeting with wonderful success. It has cured “I wish to say for the benefit of others, that I was a sufferer from
some cases here that physicians pronounced incurable. I myself am lumbago and kidney trouble, and all the remedies I took gave me no
able to testify to its merits. My face today is a living picture of health relief. I began to take FOLEY’S KIDNEY CURE, and after the use of
and FOLEY’S KIDNEY CURE has made it such.” three bottles I am cured.” « ,
