Essential oil of juniper, Twelve drops. 

 

Make into twelve pills with syrup or mucilage, washing down each pill 

with a cupful of pennyroyal tea. 

 

 

CESSATION OF THE MENSES--CHANGE OF LIFE. 

 

By the phrase, "change of life," or, the critical period, we 

understand the final cessation, or stoppage, of the menses. It usually 

takes place between the ages of forty and fifty, although in some 

cases it may occur as early as thirty, and in others not until sixty. 

However, we can expect the change about the forty-fifth year. 

 

The symptoms will vary according to the constitution of the woman. In 

some the change occurs by the discharge gradually diminishing in 

quantity; in others, by the intervals between the periods being 

lengthened. A woman may pass this period without having any more 

unpleasant symptoms than an occasional rush of blood to the head, or a 

headache. Others, however, may have very severe symptoms arise, which 

will require the care of an intelligent physician. These disagreeable 

sensations should receive a careful consideration and not be hushed up 

with the reply that these complaints arise from the "change of life" 

and will vanish whenever that change takes place. The foundation of 

serious trouble may be laid which will make the remainder of her 

existence a burden and cut short a life which might have been 

conducted to a good old age. While this change is in progress, in 

probably the majority of cases there is more or less disturbance of 

the health. It is sometimes quite impossible to say exactly what is 

the trouble with the patient, except that she is out of health. The 

following are some of the symptoms which may arise: Headache, 

dizziness, biliousness, sour stomach, indigestion, diarrhoea, piles, 

costiveness, itching of the private parts, cramp and colic of the 

bowels, palpitation of the heart, swelling of the limbs and abdomen, 

pains in the back and loins, paleness and general weakness. 

 

 

TREATMENT. 

 

Eat and drink moderately; sleep in airy, well-ventilated rooms; 

exercise daily in the open air, either by walking or riding; avoid 

violent emotions; shun exposure to wet, stormy weather, wet feet, etc. 

 

Keep the bowels regulated with the following: 

 

Mercurial pill, one grain; ipecac powder, one-half grain; compound 

rhubarb pill, three grains. Mix for a pill to be taken every night. 

 

Or, one ounce of hicra picra, or powdered aloes with castella, mixed 

in a pint of gin, which should stand for four or five days, after 

which a tablespoonful in a glass of water may be taken every morning 

or second morning, as the case may be. 

 

If the patient is large and fleshy, of full habit, the following is 

recommended: 

 

Sulphate of magnesia, one and one-half ounces; compound infusion of 

roses, five ounces; cinnamon water, one ounce. Mix, Dose: Two
