When workmen excavating the ruins of Pompeii eagerly gathered the native medicinal plants growing there, Wilhelmina Jashemski discovered that this was another example of the continuity of life in the shadow of Vesuvius. Many of the plants used for herbal medicine around Pompeii today are the same ones that ancient authorities such as Pliny the Elder and Dioscorides recommended for treating the same types of disorders. In this book, Jashemski presents an herbal of thirty-six medicinal plants, most of them known to the ancients and still employed today. She describes each plant's contemporary medicinal uses and compares them to ancient practices as recorded in literary sources. Scientific, English, and Italian names and the plant's mythological associations complete the entries, while elegant, full-page portraits depict each plant visually.

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.

In Contraception and Abortion from the Ancient World to the Renaissance, John Riddle showed, through extraordinary scholarly sleuthing, that women from ancient Egyptian times to the fifteenth century had relied on an extensive pharmacopoeia of herbal abortifacients and contraceptives to regulate fertility. In Eve's Herbs, Riddle explores a new question: If women once had access to effective means of birth control, why was this knowledge lost to them in modern times? Beginning with the testimony of a young woman brought before the Inquisition in France in 1320, Riddle asks what women knew about regulating fertility with herbs and shows how the new intellectual, religious, and legal climate of the early modern period tended to cast suspicion on women who employed "secret knowledge" to terminate or prevent pregnancy. Knowledge of the menstrual-regulating qualities of rue, pennyroyal, and other herbs was widespread through succeeding centuries among herbalists, apothecaries, doctors, and laywomen themselves, even as theologians and legal scholars began advancing the idea that the fetus was fully human from the moment of conception. Drawing on previously unavailable material, Riddle reaches a startling conclusion: while it did not persist in a form that was available to most women, ancient knowledge about herbs was not lost in modern times but survived in coded form. Persecuted as "witchcraft" in centuries past and prosecuted as a crime in our own time, the control of fertility by "Eve's herbs" has been practiced by Western women since ancient times.
