must guard constantly against kidney
trouDie because we often cat too murtt
rich food. Our blood is filled wiih
acids which the kidneys strive to filter
out; they weaken from overwork, be
come sluggish, the eliminative tisfuf
clog and the result is kidney trouble,
bladder weakness and a general de
cline in health.
When your kidneys feel like lumps
of lead; your back hurts or the urine
is cloudy, full of sediment, or you are
obliged to seek relief two or three
times during the night; if you suficr

rheumatism when the weather is bad,
begin drinking lots of good soft water
and get from your pharmacist about
four ounces of Jad Salts. Take a
tablespoonful in a glass of water be
fore breakfast for few days and
your kidneys may then act fine.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used
for years to help flush and stimulate
clogged : kidneys, to neutralize the
acids in the system so they no longer;
are a source of irritation, thus often
relieving bladder disorders.
