What do girls do who don’t have mothers to advise them about their health?

She was unable to attend school” “Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound was recommended to me for my daughter.  She had trouble every month which left her in a weak and nervous condition, with weak back and pain in her right side.  She had these troubles for three years and frequently was unable to attend school.  She has become regular and feels much better since she began taking the Vegetable Compound and attends school regularly.  She is gaining steadily and I have no hesitancy in recommending Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and Lydia E. Pinkham’s Blood Medicine.”  Mrs. John Toms, Ball St., Cobourg, Ontario.

Every True mother realizes the fact that her baby’s health depends upon her own, that the very vitality of her child is influenced by her own physical condition.  Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound has brought health and strength to thousands of others.

“I could not do A single bit of work” “I was troubled with weak feelings, headache all the time, a cough, fainting spells and pains in my back and side.  I could not do a single bit of work and had to be helped out to the hammock where I lay in the fresh air from morning until night and I had to be carried up and down stairs.  After other medicines had failed a friend advised me to take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound as she said it was excellent for any one in the family way.  Before the first bottle was taken I could walk alone and as I kept on with it I got stronger until I was able to do all of my work.  My baby is now six weeks old and is a big fat healthy fellow.  I am sure Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound has done wonders for me and I recommend it to any woman in that condition.”  Mrs. Murray J. Barton, R.R.  No. 1, Cumberland Bay, New Brunswick.

An evidence of confidence in a friend is to follow her advice, especially if it is not hearsay evidence but something which she has tried out on herself and proved.  Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound merits such confidence.  Women all over Canada as well as in the United States take our medicine and tell its worth.
