over two years with Dyspepsia.
For the last year I could not
take a drink of cold water nor
cat any meat without vomiting

had had recommended Sim

I am now taking the second
bottle, and the fact is that
words cannot express the relief
I feel. My appetite is very
good, and I digest everything
thoroughly. I sleep well now,
and I used to be very restless.
I am fleshing up fast; good,
btrong food and Simmons Liv-
