How Uric Acid Causes Gout, Rheumatism, Lumbago
(By L. H. SMITH, M. D.)
It was not until the discovery by Sir Arthur Gerod, in 1848, that the blood of gouty patients contained
uric acid in an excessively large amount, that much attention was paid to this subject. Later scientific men
learned that in gout, also rheumatism, the kidneys do
not work properly to throw off the uric acid poison ;
consequently uric acid crystals are deposited in and
about the joints, in the muscles, where an inflam inflammation
mation inflammation is set up in the nearby tissues.
Hague has said, that "gout is rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout." If uric acid is formed in excess
within the body it is passed onto the kidneys, which
act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such storage are in the
joints, muscle sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,
est, weakest, and where also the alkalinity of the blood is lowest.
Consequently we must do everything to throw off this
uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. Flush
the kidneys by drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded.
Eat less meat, drink more water, and take Anuric
(double or triple strength), after each meal and at
bed time for several weeks at a time and you will be

lame that I could hardly work. I also
had frequent, severe headaches. A
friend told me about Doan's Kidney

very glad that I did so for they gave
me more relief than all the other med medicines
