A Short History of Ancient Herbal Medicine

I was beginning to get restless because I could not find WeKratom in any of the stores that I frequently buy from. A couple of online pharmacies also told me that they were out of stock and it would take some time for them to restock on the product. I did not want to be too late and so I was checking out on the internet when I read how historically medicinal practices have evolved over time.

It is fascinating how different cultures corresponding to the various civilizations boast of their own herbal medicinal practices, yet today, an herbalist is at liberty to use any kind of traditional medicinal practice in order to help alleviate his patients fear, anxiety, discomfort, and pain.

The article that I was reading talks about how traditionally herbalism was the mainstay till, in the nineteenth century, the germ theory was evolved. Courtesy this theory, modern medicinal therapies follow a scientific method in order to be able to gather as much information to investigate and analyze the cause for the disease. This has also resulted in the use of pharmaceutical drugs instead of the erstwhile used plant-based herbal medicines.

What is heartening, however, is that in spite of the larger reach of conventional medicinal practices, the traditional form of medicines is still in great demand.

Food as medicine:

Historians and ethnobotanists alike are of the consensus that the earliest primates up to the cavemen used medicinal plants in their diet as a response to remedying their discomfort. Of course, history was not noted back then but archeologists have been able to unearth certain tell-tale signs of it especially in the graves at the various sites where the great civilizations of yore had sprung up in Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, India, etc.

Historians have come across rich Chinese texts referring to hundreds of oriental plants; 365 to be precise that have been used as medicinal herbs and have been gloriously documented into manuscripts some of the most celebrated of emperors like Shennong who wrote great treatises on such medicinal plants.
