What Is the Oculist's
BEFORE proceeding with the examination of your eyes he
asks you, "Is your digestion good? Do your bowels move
The Oculist knows that eye strain is frequently caused by a disor
dered stomach or by constipation. Any doctor will tell you the.
Constipation throws the whole system out of gear. Us effects are
felt almost immediately in biliousness, headaches, blurred vision,
nervous 'depression, and other symptoms of auto-Intoxication.
Laxatives and cathartics won't cure constipation. They irritate the
bowels into action and give temporary relief, but at the expense of
upsetting completely the normal processes of evacuation.
A far safer and more effective means of restoring norma) , bowel
movements is the mineral oil treatment, advocated and prescribed
for years by eminent specialists both in this country and abroad.
Nujol is the purest form of refined white mineral oil. . It is not a
drug nor a bowej stimulant. It acts solely as a mechanical lubri
cant, facilitating the passage of waste matter and helping to restore
normal bowel activity. '
Nujol is odorless, colorless and tastetess. It is not absorbed by the
system, hence may be taken in any quantity without harm.
Write for booklet The Rational Treatment of Constipation." If
jour drugg-iit hain't it. we will send a pint bottle of NUJOL
prepaid to any point In United States oo receipt of 75c money
order or stamps.
