Doctor David Ransom began his practice in Buffalo, New York in 1846. He produced Dr. D. Ransom's King of the Blood, claiming to cure cancers and cancerous tumors "without the surgeon's knife," as well as scrofula and consumption! Then there was Dr. A. Trask's Magnetic Ointment for croup, sore throat, diphtheria and rheumatism. Other magnetic balms and Indian balm pills followed.
