Lydia Pinkham--The Rest of the Story

Way back in 2011 when I started this blog, I found a letter to Nora from Lydia E. Pinkham giving her advice on some feminine issues she was suffering, most likely menopause.  Sadly, at a very crucial moment in the descriptive directions, "Lie on face and in-"  we had to stop short because we did not have the last page.  Talk about your cliffhangers.  Well, fear not, over Christmas vacation, Diana and I were fortunate enough to be together and had some time to sort papers in tandem.  Et voila! Diana had the rest of Lydia Pinkham's letter to Nora!  At last we can learn what to do after we lie on our faces.  Please refer to this post for the beginning of the story:  Lydia E. Pinkham and the Menopausal Woman.

Paxtine can be obtained of the Ruth Paxton Co., 68 Chauncy St.  Boston, Mass.  Price 50c.
In obstinate cases of constipation one of the first things to be attentive to is a change of diet.

Exercise freely.

Use brisk friction over the abdomen.  Have regular hours of rising, eating and going to stool.

Use Hunyadi Janos water which you can get at any drug store according to directions on the bottle.

Womb trouble will cause headaches.

Yours for health, 
Mrs. E. Pinkham

Well, there you have it--womb issues and constipation.  Not a cool combo but as I think I mentioned before, Nora lived a very nice, long life either because of or in spite of Lydia Pinkham.
