chants. For a description ofjthe qualities
ot these pills, he refers to the following
advertisement of Doctor Ralph, viz:—
‘‘The very general demand for Dr.
Ralph’s Hygeian Pills, can only be ac
counted for by reason of the unexam
pled benelit and ernes which thousands
have experienced from their use. More
over, they are founded on the wisdom
and experience of the British College ot
Physicians and Surgeons, of London:
and are recommended by the writings
and practice of Sir Astley Cooper, Mr.
Abernethy, and Dr. Babingtoiijas well as
by the greater part of the more eminent
practitioners ot England and the Conti
nent.
The limits of an advertisement will not
allow of entering upon an explanation
of the principle on which this medicine is
suited to so many different complaints.—
It must suffice to mention, that each
package of the pills contains three boxes,
two of which are gently opening, with it
strengthening quality combined, adapted
to the most feeble constitutions; while the
other is purgative, but more or less so ac
cording to the dose. Thus, by varying
these Pills, and altering tho doses agree
able to the directions given, it is aston
ishing to witness the number of diseases
which arc cured or much alleviated by
them; while there is no disease whatever
which can possibly be injured by their
use. They contain no mercury, and may
be taken without the inconveniences or
caution which other medicines general
ly require. The particular diseases in
which their efficacy has been proved and
tested,in many thousand individual cases,
arc the following:—
Dyspepsia, and the whole of those nu
merous maladies which arise from habitu
al constipation of the bowels; Apoplexy,
and all affections ol the head; Gout;
Rheumatism; Scrofula, with every spe
cies of Salt Rheum and Disorder of the
Skin; threatening Consumptive Cough;
Liver Diseases, whether the eflect of in
temperance Jor hot climate; Fever and
Ague; Common Fever, &c.; Inflamma
tions; Cholera Morbus. &c.; Jaundice;
Dropsy; Piles; Gravel; Gleet, and certain
other complaints of the Urinary and Ge
nital organs, &c. &c.
This medicine is also eminently useful
in tlie whole class ofdisorders peculiar to
the female constitution, especially in Ner
vous and Hysterical disorders. Epileptic
Fits,!St. Vitus’s Dance &c. &c.;Suk Head
Aclic, certain obstructions, sexual weak
ness, &c. In smaller doses, it may be
relied on as the best and safest medi
cine in pregnancy, and for the common
disorders of children.
The directions given with these Pilis
are remarkably plain and particular—the
proper dose and management ol them be
ing carefully ment ioned under the head
each disorder separately.
