Kidney, Bladder and Uric Add troubles bring misery to many. When
the kidneys are weak or diseased, these natural filters do not cleanse the blood
tufficiently, and the poisons are carried to all parts of the body. There follow
depression, aches and pains, heaviness, drowsiness, irritability, beadachea,
chilliness and rheumatism. In some people there are sharp poina In the back
and loins, distressing bladder disorders and sometimee obstinate dropsy. The
uric acid sometimes forms into gravel or kidney stones. When the uric add
affects the musclee and joints, it causes lumbago, rheumatisn, gout or wisUrg
"Anurio" conquers uric acid as hot water melts suptr.

neuralgia and rheumatism in the left shoulder, and for the past six months
have not even been able to raise my arm and couldn't sleep at night, the
