REVIEW ARTICLE: The Past and Present Use of Plants for Medicines

Issue: 

INTRODUCTION

In early civilizations, illness was usually believed to be due to divine punishment. The Aztecs Indian of South America, for example, believed that particular diseases were linked to specific gods; thus their god Tlaloc was associated with diseases caused by water, such as oedema (4). Similarly, Greek physicians, such as Theoprastus, were generally followers of Asclepius, the god of Medicine. Thus the use of plants for healing became strongly associated with the gods.
