Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1795 edition. Excerpt: ...in bad habits of body, and after long continuance; but is usually more offensive, and redundant in quantity. The whites often afflict maids of a weakly constitution, as well as married women and widows; and indeed there are few of the sex, especially such as are sickly, who have not known it more or less. For whatever disease renders the blood poor, foul, or viscous, and reduces a woman to a languid condition, is commonly succeeded by the whites, which, when they come in this manner, continue to weaken the body more and more, and are in great dangar, without speedy remedy, of wearing away the patient, and making her a miserable victim to death. Let no womani therefore, neglect this disorder, when she finds it on her, but endeavour to obtain an immediate cure. The regimen and general management are pointed out in the Medical Part of my Family Physician, page 220; but, in lieu of all other medicines, make a decoction of tormentilroot, bistort, #cbmfrey, and red-rose leaves; take a gillglass three parts full, and add to it thirty or forty drops of the Lunar Tincture, which must be persisted in morning, noon, and night, for ten days; then take it morning and evening only for ten days more; after which discontinue the decoction, and take the Tincture iBvery morning for a month, twenty drops in a wineglass glass of cold spring-water, the disease will;be found gradually to abate: and, upon any symptoms of a return of it, take fifteen to twenty drops of the Tincture in a wine-glass of cold water every morning for R week, and it will go entirely off; as hath been verified in a great number of patients, who are ready to testify that they owe their cure, even in the most obstinate cases, entirely to the Lunar Tincture.
