Curing Lumbago With a Comb – Strength Magazine – February, 1925

There is a solid and substantial satisfaction in having lumbago. For we know, without being told, that we have it, and we don’t have to work our imagination overtime providing it with symptoms. Also, lumbago offers less encouragement to mental or psychological healing than most anything ordinary we could gather up-except a broken leg, a crop of boils, or an abscessed tooth. And the same thing applies to its sisters-in-law, rheumatism and sciatica. Therefore, anything that cures lumbago, rheumatism, sciatica, or similar afflictions, must be able to “deliver. the goods.”
