Usually the kidneys and bladder are re sponsible—or largely so. And in euch cases, the kidneys and blad der are the organs, that need and must have attention. Those torturing, enervating sick tieadaches, dragging pains in back, jgroin and limbs, bloating and swell jlng of the extremities, extreme iiervousness or hysteria, listless Uess and constant tired, worn-out feeling—are almost certain symp toms of disordered and diseased kidneys, bladder and liver.
