(By L. H. SMITH, M. D.)
There is no question but that many
people suffer from auto-intoxication
and ptomaine poisoning. These are
big words which are easily explained.
Through the failure of the liver to
properly perform its work the twenty
seven feet of intestines become
clogged. This stagnation throws pois
ons into the blood and the circulation,
and one suffers from bad breath, foul
taste in the mouth, and even yellow
coated tongue, headache, nausea or
fullness. Gas often presses the dia
phragm against the heart and causes
pain there, or acid dyspepsia follows;
often the inactive liver causes yel
low skin and eyes, and one feels lan
guid, tired and debilitated. At such
times some people ara advised by
their doctors to take a mineral oil,
often called "Russian Oil," but expe
riments by R. F. McDonald have
shown, as lately reported in a govern
ment publication of the U. S. Public
Health Service, that mineral oil may
act as an irritant that produces gas
trointestinal disturbances and that it
may cause tissue proliferation, simu
A better method, which I always
advise, is to take as much outdoor ex
ercise as possible, drink half a pint of
hot water morning and night and
plenty of water between meals and
take a pleasant laxative pill occa
sionally. Such a one is made up of
the May-apple, of vegetable calomel
and other concentrated herb extracts
that give tone to the bowels. This
was first made and sold by almost all
druggists nearly 60 years ago as Doc
tor Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. Such
simple means will remove that bug
bear, auto-intoxication, constipation
and the ills that follow, by favoring
healthy action. Advertisement
