LOSE BAD BREATH – Keep Your Friends

In spite of all that has been written about bad breath, thousands still lose friends through this unpleasant fault. Yet sour stomach with its resultant bad breath is frequently only the result of constipation. Just as loss of appetite, early weakness, nervousness, mental dullness, can all be caused by it.

Don’t Punish Your Stomach to Relieve Constipation! (Dec, 1937)

Racist Laxative Ad (Dec, 1937)

Setting aside the ridiculously stereotyped language of the porter, a laxative to cure a cold? Really?

She caught cold on her honeymoon
BRIDE: Wouldn’t you know? I’m catching cold! Guess I’ll arrive saying, “Califordia, here I cub.”

GROOM: What you need — pronto — is a laxative and something to help counteract acidity. If only…

PORTER: Pahdon me, fo’ overhearin’ yo’, but Sal Hepatica does BOTH dose things. It’s a min’ral salt laxative and it helps Nature counteract acidity, too. Las’ trip a doctah tole me.

GROOM: Well, honey, here’s California. Got everything?

BRIDE: Everything except that cold. Lets tip that porter double for telling us about Sal Hepatica. Lucky for me he had Sal Hepatica on board!

1. Cleanse the intestinal tract.
2. Help Nature counteract acidity.
Sal Hepatica does BOTH!

Ever Had Your Colon “House Cleaned?” (Nov, 1934)

Once, by my Roomba, but we both promised never to speak of it again.

Ever Had Your Colon “House Cleaned?”

Large Per Cent, of All Ills and Ailments Have Their Source in the Neglected “Cellar” of the Human Body

IT’S only natural to neglect the cellar of the house, the part you don’t see. Yet, as a matter of fact it’s more important to keep the cellar clean and airy than any other part of the house.

The colon, or large intestine, may be called the cellar of the human body. It’s there the rubbish or waste matter from digested food collects for passage out of the body—only the body waste is no mere rubbish, but highly toxic or poisonous waste.
