Obviously, women have had cramps during “that” unpopular time each month. Supposedly, Dr. Bradfield’s Female Regulator fixed every symptom imaginable in the 1800’s! I wonder what else was in the bottle because the only ingredient listed on the label was the presence of 15% alcohol. So let’s see if I follow the logic…
Every month, a woman becomes hard to live with (Ladies, you know this is true) because she’s in pain due to something that is totally beyond her control (Well worth the price for giving birth to beautiful babies). Not all women suffer this affliction, but enough do to warrant a remedy. That’s when you take some of Dr. Bradfield’s Female Regulator and get tipsy enough to take the edge off the pain.
The best part of all is that you can do it in the privacy of your own home “away from the eyes of a physician” because no one wants to see you getting drunk if you decide to take more than the directed amount.
Haven’t we come a long way?
I’m not so sure that some doctors have changed at all.
When I was nineteen years old, I had a doctor tell me that my “cramps” were all in my head. Did you just gasp? Well, it is the truth and I would tell you his name, but I might get sued for slander. I did, however, tell everyone for the past twenty eight years this story and I always include his name. I think of it as my little form of justice. I wouldn’t have spent all that time sharing the incident except that at nineteen I was naive enough to think that he might actually be right because he was a DOCTOR. My mother assured me that he was not correct and that is when I finally took responsibility of my health.
Thank you Mom.
The next time a “doctor” diagnoses you or gives you a “medication” to help you, do not believe every word without doing your own research. The person that knows your body the best is YOU! Be responsible for your health by asking intelligent questions after researching your symptoms or condition. Doctor’s need your input so that they can use their knowledge to help you There are many really excellent physicians that help millions every day.
Remember that YOU are your body’s best advocate.
Otherwise, you may just be taking some of Dr. Bradfield’s concoctions from someone who only sees you as a few more dollars added to his wallet. After all, doctors are human too and not all of them are honest or good at practicing medicine.
