pains all over, and suffered with an abscess. Three phy
sicians failed to relieve me. Since taking Cardui, I am in
better health than ever before, and that means much to me, t
because I suffered many years with womaniy troubles, of
different kinds. What other treatments I tried, helped me
for a few days only."
Don't wait, until you are taken down sick, before tak

symptoms of womanly weakness and disease, always mean

You would always keep Cardui handy, if you knew
what quick and permanent relief it gives, where weakness
