Cures; The Story of Cures That Failed, Now Available!

This book is a compilation of medical history spanning several thousand years, from the practices of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians up through the then nearly modern period of the late 19th century. It speaks at length about theriac, calomel, Mesmer and mesmerism, blue light therapy, leechcraft, healing spells, and many other fascinating methods of medicine used in past times.

This book is occult in two manners; first its treatment of superstitious, sometimes spiritual medicinal folk practices, and secondly for its statements on the all encompassing placebo effect, which after all plays a significant role in religion and human spiritual systems, not just medical ones!
