Subject: Herbal Medicines

From: Pete


I study Life Sciences at McMaster University, yet don't believe that my body's immune system should be worn down with modern day medicine's pills and overuse of antibiotics. What herbal medicine's can I take to improve my stamina, concentration, focus and energy? 

Reply from Dr. Bazos:

Dear Pete:
Let's answer your question from a historical pespective.
2000 B.C. Here, eat this root.
1000 B.C. That root is heathen, say this prayer.
1850 A.D. Prayer is superstition, drink this potion.
1930 That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill.
1970 That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic.
2000 That antibiotic is artificial, here, eat this root.
