I received this e-mail from a Doctor friend of mine. She knows that we sell
herbs and stuff so she forwarded this little thing our way. I thought that the
list might enjoy this.
A patient says: "Doctor, I have an ear ache."
The physician's response over history would be like this:
2000 B.C.- "Here, eat this root."
1000 B.C.- "That root is heathe, say this prayer."
1850 A.D. - "That prayer is superstition, drink this potion."
1940 A.D. - "That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill."
1985 A.D.- "That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic"
2000 A.D. - "That antibiotic doesn't work anymore, eat this root!"
