Bromo Quinine

(Grove Laboratories)

The correct name for a cold is coryza, or acute rhinitis. It is an acute inflammation of the nasal cavities. This condition does not occur over night or by getting your feet wet or sitting in a draft. These shocks only bring it to a head. The beginning of it has been many weeks or months before, by allowing the system to "run down" and poisons to accumulate in the system.

The mucous membranes of the nose and throat become inflamed and swollen; then begin to "run." Nature will unload these body poisons at the nearest surface mucous membrane, this being that of the nose and throat.

The old saying is "A cold is three days coming, and three days going." This should be a rule. To stop a cold the first day is doing damage to the body by forcing back into the body these poisons which Nature wishes to expel.

Look out for future trouble if you do this. The nasal passages should run freely the first 24 to 48 hours. If this is allowed then your cold will clear faster, and you will protect the other organs of the body.

An advertisement of Bromo Quinine says "Stop a Cold the First Day. Drive It Out of Your System." You will not "drive it out of your system" by this method, but you will drive it back in. They tell you it is an "internal infection," which is correct; but their "internal treatment" is wrong, as is also their advice.

What is Bromo ? It is Bromide. It is a salt of hydrobromic acid — the bromides of calcium, iron, ammonium, potassium and sodium, used in medicine. They allay nervous excitement, and are employed as sedatives.

What is a sedative ? An agent lessening functional activity.

What is Quinine ? It acts as a stimulant to the nervous system causing, in large doses, cerebral congestion and lessening of the reflexes. It is a slight respiratory stimulant and a depressant to the circulation. In large doses it causes ringing in the ears, a feeling of fullness in the head, dizziness, slight deafness and sometimes disturbances of vision.

These pills also contain a dope or depressant called Acetanilide. With all this going on inside of you, what chance has Nature to throw out the poisons?

Two dopes and a stimulator.

A cold is the result of a condition, more fully explained in the chapter "The Racket In Cancer Control" in this book. It is only secondary. Bromides treat results — not conditions. This type of "therapy" is doubly dangerous.
