The lady told me that about forty years previously, after child- birth, there was considerable sagging of the abdominal organs, and that ever since she had been terribly constipated.

Allopathic literature is now admitting that quinine only suppresses the attacks. The malarial Parasites in peripheral blood are only a phase of the malarial cycle. The parent germs are somewhere in the liver and as yet no medicine has been discovered against it.
