SINUSITIS Is an infraction of the sinuses (air cells) of the forehead and nose. In a normal and healthy person there, can be no sinusitis. In sinusitis the human framework is entirely out of mechanical balance. The body is not in plumb. There is muscular and nerve irritation which causes faulty posture. The arms and legs are of uneven length--thus creating a sacro-illuc or sambro-sacral d I s t o r lion. The cure consists in mak- irie scientific mechanical corrections, so as to relieve and correct 'the true cause ot this ailment. This is accomplished by scientific manipulation and in reasonable time the sinuses are normal and remain so and correction Is GUARANTEED to be soothing: and painless.
