High Blood Pressure
-Hardened Arteries

-How to Remedy


(Specialist in Health Conservation) Dear Doctor Alsaker :

Last week I had two severe shocks. One of my friends had a stroke of apoplexy and is now in a very serious condition; another one dropped dead. Both of them are a little past fifty, and both of them have suffered from high blood pressure for some time. I am anxious because I too am past fifty, and my blood pressure runs from 190 to over 200. From time to time I have discomfort in the region of the heart and pains in the head.

A third friend tells me that he followed your directions and recovered. He is active and looks healthy, but I can hardly believe this, for my physicians—and they are good ones--have informed me that high blood pressure can not be reduced. Please write me frankly by return mail. I want to linger here a

T here are exceptions who can not recover. This is because they have abused themselves so long that either the kidneys have failed beyond recovery, or the heart valves or heart walls have been too much injured, or the walls of the arteries themselves have become as brittle as chalk in spots. But the vast majority—at least four out of five on the average can get into such good condition that they they are enjoying good health.

Publisher's Announcement and Personal Guarantee—R. L. Alsaker, M.D., is a new type of physician. He specializes in health and teaches those who come to him for advice how to live so that disease will vanish. He has written several health-building handbooks that explain the cause of disease and show the sick how to recover. One of the most important is “Curing Diseases of Heart and Arteries.” This book is really a course of instructions on the correct home treatment of Heart Disease, Hardened Arteries, High Blood Pressure and Apoplexy. It gives specific advice on the care of the body and the proper foods to eat to produce a cure. All forms of heart disease are discussed and a correct home treatment prescribed. It is marvelous what the common foods will do for the sick when properly combined and intelligently eaten. Send $2.10 for “ Curing Diseases of the Heart and Arteries.” Follow the doctor's advice regarding the care of the body and especially The Alsaker Way of food combining and eating, for 30 days. If you are fully satisfied with the good results obtained keep the book; otherwise return it and I will refund your money. George G. Porter, a prominent business man of Syracuse, N. Y., writes, “Measured by the usual fees charged by physicians for a single consultation and prescription, Dr. Alsaker's health-building handbooks are worth $50 to $100 each.” Mr. Porter has purchased and distributed among sick people more than 200 copies of The Alsaker Handbooks.

America's Obligation and Opportunity (Continued) holds; for it is generally recognized that whatever affects the prosperity or happiness of one nation affects in some degree the prosperity and happiness of other nations. It is to the benefit of all that each nation be as prosperous as possible. American capital invested abroad will perform an invaluable service by helping other peoples to help themselves. This is a humanitarian work and a patriotic duty as well as good business ; for do we not wish our flag admired and respected in the field of commerce as it has been honored and victorious on the battlefields of Europe?
