Note: I’m writing a fictional story about a character that’s known as the village’s healer (or sometimes called their village’s witch). I’m NOT a medical professional, so do not take this as a factual guide of what natural remedies to try at home or whatnot. This research is just listing down what people, specifically ‘healers’ were most likely using back then to treat various medical problems. As well as some modernize remedies in case I want to write a character that’s a bit advance in their knowledge.
Some of these old-time remedies have been proven to truly work, which most people still use to this day, but others were a bit ridiculous and far-fetch. Such as gathering as many pebbles as you had warts, rub one pebble on each wart, take them to a crossroads and throw the pebbles over your left shoulder. The warts were supposed to go with them.
