physical exhaustion, dizziness and tremors. Was easily tired. Mental

for previous 5 years. Blood pressure too high. Given 2 Titus-Pearls
3 times a day. 2 weeks later the medical report on this man was:—
general health better, more vigor; dizziness much less and returning
of power. Treatment continued and 2 weeks later L. S. reported
again, this time to say that all weariness and exhaustion had gone;
he felt fresh and buoyant.. His blood pressure had fallen, and at 60
y«a« of age he had regained the physical power and virility that
he had known m the prime of his life.
