Prehistoric Iroquois Medicine
Hosbach, Richard E.; Doyle, Robert E.
Conservationist, 30, 4, 33-35, Jan-Feb 76
Study of pre-1750 medicine reveals that Iroquois diagnosis and treatment of disease was more advanced than the medicine of their European counterparts. The Iroquois developed a cure for scurvy, treated hypertension, and head lice, and even designed sauna baths. Indian psychiatry also included modern day techniques such as dream analysis. (MR)
