Is that what the apprentice collected? [Jul. 14th, 2005|02:26 am]

To treat infections, the early Chinese used moldy soybean curds, the Mayans used cuxum fungi, while the Egyptians used yeast from sweet beer. A seventeenth century English recipe for an anti infection unguent even called for “moss from dead men’s skulls”.

Re: Some more nice remedies

A geological formation? So like moss taken from rocks then? That's really cool. Can you find like some sort of picture of that?

Mmm. Give me some whooping cough. ;)

And those insanity remedies are insane. ;) Love it. Also they used to bleed people to pull the "poisons" out of the blood. Poisions that cause insanity. I was in a play that took place in 1600's England and my character didn't want to get married so her parents had her tied to a chair and bled with leaches and knives until she was so weak she agreed to marry him.. because she didn't want to bleed to death. Good times.

I can see the poultices... but the ring?
