The Works of Aristotle - CONTAINING PROPER AND SAFE REMEDIES FOR THE CURING OF ALL THOSE DISTEMPERS THAT ARE PECULIAR TO THE FEMALE SEX, AND ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT HAVE OBSTRUCTION TO THE BEARING OF CHILDREN.

CONTAINING PROPER AND SAFE REMEDIES FOR THE CURING OF ALL THOSE DISTEMPERS THAT ARE PECULIAR TO THE FEMALE SEX, AND ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT HAVE OBSTRUCTION TO THE BEARING OF CHILDREN.

 

 

HAVING finished the first part of this book, and therein I hope amply made good my promise to the reader, I am now come to treat of the distempers peculiar to the female sex, in which it is not my design to enlarge; as to treat of all the distempers they are incident to, but those only to which they are most subject when in a breeding condition, and those that keep them from being so; for each of which distempers I have laid down such proper and safe remedies, as with the divine blessing may be sufficient to repel them and since, as amongst all the diseases to which human nature is subject, there is none that more diametrically opposes the very end of our creation, and the design of nature in the formation of different sexes, and the power thereby given us for the work of generation, than that of sterility or barrenness, which, where it prevails, renders the must accomplished midwife but a useless person and destroys the design of our book; I think, therefore, barrenness is an effect that deserves our first consideration.
