OBJECT OF TREATMENT In plain and simple terms-To relieve and so far as possible, undo the effects of the catarrhal condition that may be associated with deafness, and thus to promote relief from the impaired hearing that has resulted from that condition. Each unit or part of The Elmo Treatment has its particular function in the general plan, and if it is found possible to make these aids or some of them effective, nature should relieve the poor hearing or to some extent at least, unless the organs of hearing have been damaged beyond relief.
