good Cardui has done me. As a young girl, I always had
to suffer so much with all kind of pain. Sometimes, I was
so weak that I could hardly stand on my feet. I got a
bottle of Cardui, at the druj; store, and as soon as I had
taken a few doses, I began to feel better.
Today, 1 feel as well as anyoi.2 can."
