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.

AG,
Way to go. Thanks for the link.
I'll be all over this one like a cheap suit.     

You are very welcome. Glad to be of service.

Faith,
if it has not works, is dead, being alone.
