Publisher's Summary

The Untold History of Healing takes the listener on an exciting, expansive journey of the history of medicine from the Stone Age to modern times, explaining that Western medicine has its true origins in the healing lore of Paleolithic hunters and gatherers, herding nomads, and the early sedentary farmers rather than in the academic tradition of doctors and pharmacists. Anthropologist and ethnobotanist Wolf D. Storl vividly describes the many ways that ancient peoples have used the plants in their immediate environment, along with handed-down knowledge and traditions, to treat the variety of ailments they encountered in daily life.

not what I was expecting when it said anthropology

I've only just started it and it seems to be less an anthropology book and more a bashing modern medicine and science kind of book. I regret not finding reviews before wasting a credit on it. I would really like my credit back.
