syringe yourself with a quart or two of warm water. Such a tampon may be 

inserted every other day or every third day, and I have known where this 

simple treatment alone produced a cure. In some cases, however, douches 

work better, and the two best things for douching are: tincture of 

iodine and lactic acid. Buy, say, four ounces of tincture of iodine, and 

use two teaspoonsful in two quarts of hot water in a douche bag. This 

injection should be used twice a day, morning and night. Of the lactic 

acid you buy, say, a pint, and use two tablespoonsful to two quarts of 

water. The lactic acid has the advantage over the tincture of iodine 

that it is colorless, while the iodine is dark and stains whatever it 

comes in contact with. Sometimes I order the use of the tincture of 

iodine and the lactic acid alternately: for one douche the tincture of 

iodine, for the next the lactic acid, and so on. When the condition 

improves, it is sufficient to use one teaspoonful of the tincture of 

iodine and one tablespoonful of the lactic acid to two quarts of water. 

These injections are quite efficient and have the advantage of being 

perfectly harmless. One point about the injections: they should be taken 

not in the standing or squatting position (in which position the fluid 

comes right out), but while laying down, over a douche pan. The douche 

bag should be only about a foot above the bed, so that the irrigating 

fluid may come out slowly; the patient, after each injection taken in 

the daytime, should remain at least half an hour in bed (in the 

nighttime she stays all night in bed.) This gives the injection a better 

chance to come in contact with all the parts of the vagina, and a 

portion of it comes in contact with the cervix, where it exerts a 

healing effect. Avoid the use of patent medicines." 

 

UTERINE DISPLACEMENT. The woman suffering from Uterine Displacement 

should, of course, consult a competent physician and be governed by his 

advice. The following suggestions, however, will be found to be of 

service in many cases: 

 

In the case of PROLAPSUS, or falling of the womb, many women have found 

great relief, and in many cases permanent improvement, by taking 

occasional rests in bed for an hour or so, with the feet and lower part 

of the legs raised at least eight inches above the level of the head. In 

this plan, the Uterus is replaced by gravitation. Some authorities 

advise practicing waist-breathing while lying in this position, thus 

exercising the abdominal muscles. Dr. Taylor says: "Increase the 

pump-like action of the chest, and it will be found that the displaced
