Around 65-70 years ago my then 40 year old father had a stomach condition n everything he ate gave him stomach pain except canned spinach n saltine crackers. Dad ate only that for more than a year until he was told about Willard tablets. My mother quickly sent an order by mail for this medicine. It came in a couple weeks and dad was faithful to take as directed. In a short time dad begin to try other foods and within weeks back to his normal diet without any pain and a very happy man. Growing up I recall having Willard tablets always on hand just in case. My father told everyone he met about the miracle they had performed for him. Thank you, for my Dad.
