Monastic medicine: medieval herbalism meets modern science

Monastic medicine: medieval herbalism meets modern science

By Susan Watt and Eleanor Hayes

Science in School, Issue 27 (2013)



Quote
Introduction: Most people think of herbal medicine as a distinctly ‘alternative’ option – something that you might try for a cough or cold that won’t budge, but not for life-threatening illnesses.

Medical historian Dr Johannes Mayer, however, takes it all much more seriously: he believes that the herbal remedies described in medieval texts can provide excellent starting points for highly effective modern treatments, even for diseases such as cancer  :o.

And he is not alone, as his work has already attracted the attention (and funding!) of pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline.

Read it all for your health AND your pocketbook.
