Description
The indications or uses for this product as provided by the manufacturer:
It cures all diseases that originate from the suppression of the Menses, by taking cold or from any other cause. It cures the Lucorrhea, or Whites, in a very short time. It regulates and tones the up the system without the pernicious use of mineral drugs. It is good to use before childbirth, it prepares the system for the event, relieves of more than one-half the labor and pains, and every woman who has once used it, would not consent to do without it. It is a medicine that all middle-aged women need the regulate and relieve them of the pain and ill feeling, incident to that critical period called the turn of life. Two or three powders taken before the periodical return of the Menses, will prevent all sickness incident to such cases. It is purely vegetable and absolutely harmless, and would not hurt a well person; for it only acts on the sexual organs, and will regulate and tone them to healthy action. Thousands of girls in passing from girlhood to womanhood, take a slight cold, which supresses the natural courses, causes them to decline for one, two or three years and finally sink into an untimely grave, and the family physician calls it consumption; when one half box of this remedy taken at first, would have restored them to health and usefulness.
