7 Of The Strangest Medical Treatments Our Ancestors Used

At one point or another, almost every single one of us has required medical expertise and care in order to heal a broken bone, a sickness, or any other ailment we’re currently experience. For the most part, at least within today’s society, we tend to get help from highly trained experts who spent years in medical school for this specific purpose. However, way back when, the strangest medical treatments were used to heal all types of problems. Who knows if they even really helped at all, but they were still popular.

7. Moldy Bread

When suffering from a cut in ancient Egypt, the local doctors would use moldy bread on the wound in order to disinfect the area. They believed this would prevent any bacteria from growing worse within the cut.

6. Crystal Meth
Hitler was particularly fond of Crystal Meth, as he used it for all of his ailments, along with over twenty other drugs. His doctor injected the hardcore narcotics into his butt to keep him “fresh, alert, and active” during his reign.

5. Dead Mouse Paste
Throughout Ancient Egypt, anyone suffering from a toothache would have mashed mice mixed with a few other ingredients applied to the painful tooth in an attempt to remove the harsh feelings.

4. Leeches
In order to remove the “bad blood” while someone was sick, ancient doctors would apply blood-sucking leeches to the afflicted area in order to remove the problem. These are, apparently, coming back in the medical world.

3. Heroine
Heroine, which we all know as a hardcore narcotic, was once used and marketed as a type of home remedy for coughs, colds, and certain pains. There were probably a lot of drug addicts at the time.

2. Ecstasy
During the 1970’s, there was a strong push for doctors to make use of ecstasy while treating insane patients in a form of psychotherapy. Again, a lot of people were probably walking around addicted or with half of their brain missing.

1. Soothing Syrup
Soothing Syrup, otherwise known as Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup, was immensely popular in the late 1800s to sooth children’s painful teething process. Morphine and alcohol were the two main ingredients, unfortunately.
