ASTHMA: It 'has been oyer ten
years since the subject, of asthma has
had any consideration to speak of in
the Home Health Club lectures.
There have been many sufferers
among our readers that have fre
quently asked for help, but the
pressure of other matters seemed to
great that the sufferers were simply
referred to the Home Health Club
book of lectures of -Vol. 3 of the ser
ies of club .books arid in that way
they have not only found the greatly
desired relief but have had the books
for the treatment of other ailments.
Naturally any one that comes in
contact with such a vast variety of
ailments as I do by reason of the
Home Health Club is bound to find
some very curious and unusual con
ditions. Sometimes It taxes the in
genuity to the utmost to discover the
real or predisposing cause of suffer
ing or disease but at the Home
Health Club headquarters it is con
sidered necessary to "know the
cause" before anything can be ac
complished in the way of a cure.
I have in mind the case of a wom
an past 60 years of age. She had
been remarkably healthy always but
she developed asthma and what was
called by her family and friends,
"fainting spells." The local physl
clan seemed unable to account for
the trouble as her heart, Jiver and
kidneys appeared normal and diges
tion was good. After a number of
months a letter was written to the
Home Health Club and in an ob
scure phrase the writer remarked
that the fainting spells were becom
ing so frequent that she sometimes
had them in her sleep. That was
the most important part of, the let
ter. The local doctors did not at
tach any importance to it but that
meant epilepsy. Am the women had
always been normal and healthy,
there must be an immediate cause.
The X-Ray machine was brought
into use at my request and it was
found that nearly half of her 17
teeth were abscessed, had pus at the
roots. I at once recommended a
skillful dental surgeon that uses Dr.
Herbert Petts' ((Northwestern Uni
versity College of Dentistry) method
of injecting novocain with adrenalin
into the trunk or largest nerve lead
ing to the teeth; by the use of this
method all of the teeth were extract
ed at three sittings without the
slightest pain or the use of nitrous
oxide or laughing -gas. As soon as the
gums healed the woman was well.
The cause of both the asthma and
the epilepsy had been removed and
Nature did the curing. No medi
cine could have been compounded
that would have brought about the
same results unless it would first stop
the process of pus formation and its
passage into the food.
At about the same time a man
aged a little over 50 years came to
the Home Health Club. He had
suffered terribly with asthma for
about three years, also with a bad
cough and a stringy tenacious secre
tion of mucus that threatened at
times to choke him to death. His
case had been pronounced aFthma
and consumption. Here he was told,
that the first thing necessary was an
X-Ray picture of his teeth. It was
taken immediately and although they
all looked sound on the outside there
was not a single tooth thai was
sound at the roots. Everyone was
taken out and in six weeks the
man's asthma, cough, mucus and
consumption were all things of the
If you have asthma, go to some
capable physician that knows how to
look for the cause or source of in
fection. It may be in the teeth; it
may not. In many cases of rheu
matism the source of Infection may
be in the tonsils, the prostate, the
liver, kidneys, but no matter, find it
and then the right sort of treatment
will remove the cause. Nature will
do the curing.
Medicines are all right and quite
necessary but it is much more neces
sary to find the cause before uslny

IN UPPER COURT

I must tell you of the benefit I got
from the jar of Plaht iodide. I used
it freely and thoroughly for about
two weeks and the sore or pimple
disappeared. There is no eruption
left;, it seemed to draw it out till it
was an eighth of an inch high, but it
got thinner every day till one day it
was gone altogether. During thresh

one beside his nose as big as a rasp
