He asks us to excuse his writing. We do more than that—we congratulate him on being able to write at all at his age, especially as he has been suffering from rheumatism. This is what he says in his letter:—
“Three years ago I was in bed for six weeks with inflammatory rheumatism. Since that time I have been taking Kruschen Salts, and have not had another attack. But the complaint left me with bad feet, and it hurts me to walk. My hands are also somewhat stiff. I take Kruschen every morning before breakfast, and shall continue to do so, because I am sure they have kept me in good shape for three years. Excuse this writing, as I am ninety years old, and use both hands to write.”—J.R.G.
Rheumatism, like gout and lumbago, has its origin in intestinal stasis (delay)—a condition of which the sufferer is seldom aware. It means the unsuspected accumulation of waste matter and the consequent formation of excess uric acid. If you could see the .knife-edged crystals of uric acid under the microscope, you would readily understand why they cause those cutting pains. And if you could see how Kruschen dulls the sharp edge of those crystals, then dissolves them away altogether, you would agree that this scientific treatment must bring relief from rheumatic agony.
Moreover, Kruschen so stimulates the organs of elimination that every trace of uric acid-forming waste material is regularly and completely expelled. Kruschen keeps your inside clean and serene. Mischievous uric acid never gets the chance to accumulate again.
