Brown’s Celebrated Magic Pain Curer Embrocation, The best liniment in the World This is a superior compound for the cure of Rheumatism, sprains, bruises, burns, scalds, stiffness of thee joints, quinsy, tooth-ache, head-ache, sore-throat, wounds, lumbago, neuralgia, & all nervous disorders. A remedy which no Family should be Without. It is unrivaled by any preparation of the kind new introduced before the Public, and the price at which it is sold brings it within the reach of all. It only needs a trial to prove the above, and to recommend its Merits and Healing Powers. There is no person who has ever used the liniment but who speaks in its highest praise. In fact it is an article that will Recommend Itself. No remedy has ever been invented so useful and efficacious in Curing rheumatism, sciatica, stiff and weak joints, bruises, sprains, swellings, or any other complaints requiring an external application. For rheumatism and gout. With these diseases the diet ought to be light and cooling, and all stimulating drinks abstained from, except when the patient is much reduced and debilitated, when the Celebrated usquebaugh bitters and a more generous diet may be allowed. If there is much inflammation and swelling, a gentle purgative should be taken. If the disease is in the feet or legs, take as little exercise as possible for a few days, & when sitting place the feet in an elevated position; keep the affected parts as cool as possible. It is a mistaken idea, and very injurious to wrap them up in flannels, and calculated to retard a cure. Bathe the parts affected freely with the liniment morning and evening, and rub with the hands fifteen or twenty minutes at each application If the joints are enlarged or hardened, it has a good effect to heat the Liniment before applying it. The disease in its worst forms, will soon yield to its miraculous powers; as it equalizes the circulation of the blood and nervous fluids, and thus striking at the very root of the disease, soon eradicates it. For sprains Bathe the parts freely with cold water (showering is the best) after which excite a reaction by friction, and then apply the Liniment as previously directed, four or six times a day. For bruises Bind on a piece of linen well saturated with the Liniment, which will soon remove all soreness, and cause the wound to heal rapidly. For quinsy and sore-throat Having first bathed the throat freely with the Liniment, bind on a piece of soft flannel well saturated in liniment and kept so. Ulcerated or putrid sore throat a gargle of yeast occasionally and frequent gargling of warm water is of decided advantage. The bowels should be kept open and the diet light and simple. A timely application of this Liniment has never failed to cure. Curs, wounds, sores and ulcers Of Every Kind are readily cured with this Liniment. Headache May often be cured with this Liniment.
