I saw a programme on TV a while back about the Prince Regent and his partiality for good food. He would throw huge, extravagant banquets at Brighton Pavilion and employed a French chef to create these sumptuous meals.
Several decades later than our period I know, but you might enjoy the following link:

Oh I've been to Brighton Pavillion :D. I think. Sumptuous banquets cooked by a French chef sounds exactly my kind of thing *sighs*

I found this website and it talked about the food in the 18th century. They eat peacock. From a book I read in the medieval times it was about quantity, not taste a presentation. In the 18th century it was more about the presentation and taste quantity came second. I wish I could find that blasted link! When I do I'll post it up.

constant bleeding could be from fibroid tumors, those are often brought on by severe hormone imbalance caused by menopause, could be precocious and stress induced. and we all know the inhumane stress endured by our Queen. also this can cause the thinning and greying of the hair and skin. as they say happened to her. I believe her body was stressed beyond what is humanly bearable. During stress, there first goes estrogen, and ovulation stops, progesterone stops, and flabbyness ensues. General rapid aging when estrogen is low, but pouring unchecked. fibroid tumors can begin to grow and there is clumpy bleeding all the time. I know this is not about cuisine, but I was responding to the mention of cancer. Fibroids are a cancer that causes constant heavy bleeding and could be absolutely stress induced.

It depends on her age. If she is a teenager she could have endometriosis, that usually happens with 20-30 years old. She could very well have fiberoids, hopefully non carcengenic, all I can say is that your sister will have to examined by a gynecologist.

I remember reading that until in the medieval times the what mattered was the quantity of food on the table versus the 18th century what mattered was the flavor and quality of the food.
