Medicine in ancient time through out the 17th century
Medicine in ancient time
through out the 17th century advanced rapidly. Medicine in ancient times began with the
notation that illness and disease was caused by evil sprits and treatment
consisted on the forgiveness from their god(s) by way of prayer or offerings
this slowly changed as keeping detailed records became more common. While herbs and other concoctions were the
first attempts at a cure, it was not realized until after the 5th century, that symptoms needed to be addressed and not merely discomfort of a
patient (Juntuned, V, 2011).
