The bowels should be kept open by some mild catharsis, as castor oil 

or a pill of aloes. If there is pain and fullness of the head during 

the discharge, or before it, use the following: 

 

Tincture of aconite leaves, Two drams; 

Tincture of belladonna, One dram; 

Tincture of cantharides, One dram; 

Morphia, Three grains; 

Simple syrup, Quarter ounce. 

 

Mix. Dose: One teaspoonful three times a day. If the pain is severe it 

may be taken every two hours. 

 

Between the monthly periods, if the system is weak, the following may 

be taken: 

 

Precip. carbonate of iron, Five drams; 

Extract of conium, Two drams; 

Balsam Peru, One dram; 

Alcohol, Four ounces; 

Oil wintergreen, Twenty drops; 

Simple syrup, Eight ounces. 

 

Dose: Two teaspoonfuls three times a day. Shake the mixture before 

using. 

 

 

CHLOROSIS, OR GREEN SICKNESS. 

 

This disease generally occurs in young unmarried females who are weak 

and delicate. It manifests itself about the age of puberty, and is 

accompanied by feeble appetite and digestion. There is no menstrual 

discharge, or else it is very slight. 

 

It is caused by innutritious food and residence in damp and 

ill-ventilated apartments. It may be hereditary, all the females of 

the family being liable to the same disease. Those who drink largely 

of tea, coffee, diluted acids, bad wines, and indulge in tight lacing; 

are predisposed to this disease. Among the exciting causes may be 

mentioned disturbing emotions, unrequited love, homesickness, 

depression of spirits, etc. When we take into consideration the fact 

that the cause of the disease is impoverishment of the blood, the 

treatment will not be difficult. 

 

 

TREATMENT. 

 

Exercise freely in the open air; protect the body from chilliness with 

warm clothing and plenty of it. The patient should sleep on a mattress 

in a well-ventilated room. The diet should be nourishing without being 

stimulating. It is important that the habits should be regular, and 

the mind kept cheerful by society and innocent amusements. Before the 

medical treatment is commenced the exciting causes of the disease must 

be removed. A complete change must be made in the existence of the 

patient. If she is confined closely at school, she must be removed; if 

she is inclined to confine herself to the house, send her to the 

country. Picture to her the danger she is in by the continuance of 

such a life; give her plenty of outdoor exercise. The mental and moral 

causes are the most difficult to remove, but a change of scenery and 

new friends will do much towards it. For those who are shut up in 

factories, or who work all day in a stooping position, a change of
