Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Complete Herbalist: Or the People Their Own Physicians by the Use of Nature s Remedies; Describing the Great Curative Properties Found in the Herbal Kingdom About three hundred years before the Christian era, the Ptolemies founded a medical school in Alexandria, Egypt. The most famous Of the professors were erasistratus and herophilus, who dissected the bodies Of criminals Obtained from government. They Opposed bleeding and violent remedies, trusting more to nature than to art. Herophilus paid particular attention to the action Of the heart, and was the first to give anything like an accurate description Of the various kinds Of pulse, though Praxagoras Of cos, the last Of the Asclepiadae, had before Observed the relation which exists between the pulse and the general condition of the system. From that time to the present the pulse has been, as it were, the guide for determining the character, ex tent, and probable cause Of the disease af?icting the patient, and the description Of treatment required to produce a change for the better. I, however, derive great assistance from the temperament, age, sex, etc. We pass over the days Of the Dogmatics and Empirics, the Pneu matics, and other sects of medical practitioners (who, though they em ployed herbal remedies as a general rule, were strangely given to the promulgations Of theories and doctrines utterly at variance with the most ordinary ratiocinations Of Philosophy and Reason), until we come to the period when galen first made his appearance, at the request of the Emperor aurelius. Galen was a native of Pergamos, born a.d. 130, having traveled much and written largely on Subjects directly or indirectly connected with medicine before settling himself at Rome. He was entirely independent in his Opinions, paid very little respect to authority, and so great was his learning and wisdom, and rare skill in medicine, that he came to be regarded by many as an Oracle. Thoroughly educated in all the schools Of philosophy, he selected from them all except the Epicurean, which he totally rejected. His treatment Of disease was principally by Herbal remedies. From Galen have sprung the sect that is now generally known as Eclectics, who do not confine remedies exclusively to the herbal practice, but employ many Of the mineral substances upon which the Allopathic and Homoeopathic sys tems of medicine Of the present day are based.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Complete Herbalist: Or the People Their Own Physicians by the Use of Nature s Remedies; Describing the Great Curative Properties Found in the Herbal Kingdom In presenting this work on Crude Organic Remedies-the Constituents of Plants, and their Officinal Preparations-I do not propose to run a tilt against any of the systems of Medical Practice, however much some of them may be opposed to common sense and reason, and to the Divine ordinances of Nature; nor shall I treat with contempt the teachings and practices of great and wonderful names, or oppose the pride, interest, expectation, and conscientious convictions of a learned, honorable, and influential profession; my object is simply to present many new and curious, if not startling facts, not only well worthy of the earnest consideration of the more intelligent portion of the community, who demand reasons the most profound to lead them to conviction of a Truth, but of the great mass of humbler people, who desire, amid all the great Reforms in human society, above all things to secure a sound mind in a sound body, and to feel something of that exalted state of happiness which alone can arise from the possession of the most robust and rubicund physical and moral Health. It must be palpable to every thinking mind that Therapeutical and Pharmaceutical science is the very foundation of the Healeng Art Divine. In the language of Holy Writ, The Lord has created medicines out of the earthy and he that is wise will not abhor them. Yea, happy he that can the knowledge gain, To know the Eternal God made naught in vain. The use of medicine is no doubt coincident with the History of the Human Race; but writers generally agree that medicine first became a profession among the Egyptians.
