Abstract

The science of medicine is probably linked more closely to the daily life of man than any other science. The sheer necessity of healing brought forth first remedies, and whether the art of healing was practiced by the wise-woman, the priest, or the medicine man, the practitioners of this art were undoubtedly a very important factor in the lives of their contemporaries.
