The Influence of Treatment for Intestinal Toxemia on Mental and Motor Efficiency (Classic Reprint)

Mental effects of intestinal toxemia have likewise been noted by various observers. Van Noorden,3 for instance, describes a condition of neurasthenia with polyneuritis due, as he holds, to intestinal toxemia and relieved by the removal of this con dition.
