Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable Compound (introduced 1875) was a patent medicine including a large amount of alcohol. It was supposed to treat PMT, the menopause and other feminine problems - and modern herbalists concede that, at worst, it doesn't make them worse. Indeed, it contained an ingredient called black cohosh which has been shown to have some efficacy in this area. And if it gets you drunk, well I guess you don't notice the ailment so much. Because patent medicines were exempt from the prohibition regime in the USA, they became especially popular at that time. Mike McGear and Roger McGough wrote Lily the Pink as a cleaned up version of an earlier American folk song, The Ballad of Lydia Pinkham. Among the verses they dropped were these two ... Mrs Jones she had no children And she loved them very dear So she took three bottles of Pinkham's Now she has twins every year And Peter Whelan (Peter Whelan) Was sad because he only had one nut Till he took some of Lydia's compound And now they grow in clusters 'round his butt
