Hundreds Claim Its Grip Broken!
Do you have Arthritis? Have you a relative or friend that is suffer
ing from this painful, distressing ailment?
I came upon a simple remedy, that ended my long search and battle
to rid myself of Arthritis. 1 had my teeth pulled, tonsils out, serum
shots, electric fever treatments, special built shoes, hot baths, pills and
salves. The Arthritis withstood them all, and examination In several of
the best known clinics could detect nothing. Flnitlly, I discovered Sulgly
Mlnol. Today, after seven months 1 am more free of pain and soreness
than at any time In twenty years. Can work ten hours a day. with
nothing more than tired feet. Lens, hips, back, neck and arms are
practically free of pain and soreness. This has cost me less than six
This is all I did, and all you will have to do to try Sulgly-Mlnol.
Just rub It on the soles of both feet before going to bed. A bottle
will last about a month and will be enough to tell whether it will help.
If It helps, keep It up for a month, and after that, Just as you feel. If
my feet feel sore from too much activity, I rub some on for a night
or two. In my opinion, the benefits of Sulphur are more sure and com-
Slete on the soles of the feet. The results obtained have been acclaimed
y many as a Qodsend.
Often I have asked the question, "Why can't something be done to
help me?" I sincerely believe that here Is something that will help
people who are suffering from Arthritis and want to tell as many as I
can about It. I am sure you do too.
