Prehistoric and Egyption Medicine

People lived in harsh land so if a person got an ilness, they could be a mager burrden for other people around them. Usualy there was an elder that learned and knew about herbs to use for situations. Not all of the time would the herbs work but everyone relied on them for pain. Most of the people believed tat the cure first had to come inside of you first and acknoleging ]the situation at hand. Aboriginal medicane says that the immune system can usually stand the virus or bacteria.

A person was not considered cured untill the doctor has applied the underlying problem that have led to the disease. If someone broke a lmb, the Aboriginal doctor reset the brake, making a splint from the bark of a tree. He bound sphagnum moss around the limb with the bark of the bootlace bush or ( mirrdturrain) a fresh cut sheet of bark form thin flexable eucalyptus tree that was wrapped around the limb to make sure it was okay. Minor burns were treated with bark form a tree (the acacia tree). It was layed in cold water then the urn immersed in water. The bark held a suvstance called tannin, which would allow or be a trigger to make skin grwon cround a burn.
