Spanish Flu (1918 - 1920)

CAPE ARGUS - 1918, November 6 - 16
CAPE ARGUS - 1918, November 6
The System recovers very slowly, owing to the gradual elimination of the poison with which it is filled. The quickest and most efficient way to get rid of the toxin is through the pores of the skin by the use of the Electric Light Bath, followed by Massage. Ask your doctor to prescribe this treatment and come to the Palace Baths, Markham’s Buildings, Adderley & Hout Streets, Cape Town.

If attacked, place yourself in your doctor’s hands. If impossible, then act on advice outlined in the following unsolicited testimonial.
Stutterheim, 22nd Oct., 1918
Dear Sir, - I feel that I ought to let you know what a lot of good your Nerve-Pain Specific has done in our house for “Spanish Influenza.” I am recommending it to many. I can safely say it is just splendid. The only pity is that so few know of it as a cure for “Spanish Flu.” It simply cures a patient in 24 hours, it takes away the headache, pain in the limbs, and it also takes away the temperature.
I see you have it advertised as a cure for Influenza, but think you can safely say – also for “Spanish Influenza.” For the last 18 months or so I have always had it in the house for Headache and Toothache, and have always found it a certain cure for both.
A dealer writes: “Please send more Nerve-Pain Specific. It is taking a prominent part in coping with the Epidemic.”

DE VOLKSTEM - 1925, 12 Oktober
“Iemand, die nooit Influenza heeft gehad, kan niet beseffen dat lijden, dat erdoor veroorzaakt word en hoe deze kwaal elke geneeskundige behandeling trotseert. Ik weet niets, dat zo’n snelle verlichting geeft als Chamberlain’s Hoestmiddel, omdat, als men het heft gebruikt, de pijn in de borst verdwijnt, de koorts bedaart en het hele lichaam tot rust komt.
En daarbij komt, dat de gevolgen van Influenza dikwels zelfs nog meer te vrezen zijn als de ziekte zelf, maar ook deze kunnen vermeden worden als men CHAMBERLAIN’S COUGH REMEDY gebruikt. Ofschoon het grote gevaar van deze ziekte is, dat zij kan overgaan in longontsteking (Pneumonia), heb ik daarvan in geen enkel geval van Influenza gehoord, als Chamberlain’s Hoestmiddel was toegepast. De hardnekkige hoest, die dikwels een gevolg is van Influenza kan zeer vlug genezen worden door Chamberlain’s Hoestmiddel en men moet vooral niet zolang wachten, totdat de hoest gevaarlik wordt.
Die uwe voor gezondheid,
