What kinds of plants did people, before modern medicine was around to lean on, use to cure themselves and fight through illness? While it is true that our lifespan on average has increased over the years with newly emerging technology, the fact remains that there are some times nature's cures may be a lot more beneficial to us.Because of the time that prehistoric medicine came about, this means that a lot of cures would be considered today to hold mystical and superstitious properties. It is difficult for many scientists to accept and further research older healing theories, even if they seemed to work at the time. They may credit this fact with the placebo effect, and the rest of it with some minor benefits natural foods and minerals may have on the body.Why Should You Purchase And Read This Book? = > 1.

However, there are some clues provided to us through archaeology and historical texts like the Bible about what people had used so long ago to treat their ailments. Prehistoric medicine may have its perks, but the fact remains that much of it is not scientifically grounded. For some cures to work, the presence of a spiritual medicine person was often required, a shaman of sorts, who was willing to step outside a normal plane of consciousness to fight illness in unconventional ways. Rituals were performed and different types of plants were administered to treat these issues. While it may not have any scientific backing, these rituals worked well enough for these prehistoric cultures that they were continued.

However, there are ways that the logic of prehistoric peoples was sound, and the herbal medicine they practiced does have its own merit.

Ancient Herbs in the J Paul Getty Museum Gardens

Author: Jeanne D'Andrea
Publisher: Getty Publications
ISBN: 9780892360352
Release Date: 1982-01-01
Genre: Gardening

The Getty Museum building recreates an ancient Roman villa on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, where guests can feel that they are visiting the Villa dei Papiri before it was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. The climate of southern California has made it possible to plant the gardens with dozens of herbs, flowers, and fruit trees known to the Greeks and Romans. In classical times they were practical as well as beautiful, providing color, perfume, home medicines, and flavorings for food and drink. Martha Breen Bredemeyer, a San Francisco Bay area artist, was inspired to paint two dozen of the garden's herbs. Her watercolor gouaches combine vibrant color with the fragile delicacy of these short-lived plants while her pen-and-ink drawings share their wiry grace. Jeanne D'Andrea discusses twenty-one of the herbs in detail after presenting their place in myth, medicine, and home in the introduction.

Every medication we use, no matter how common or well-researched, comes with intended and unintended effects. Some of these effects, such as the intended effects, are desired, like pain relief when taking pain relief medication. The problem is the unintended effects these medications cause in the body. I am not a doctor or a pharmacist, but I tend to rely on my common sense. Grant it, natural remedies have not received the same amount of scientific testing lately that modern medicine has.
