6 Horrible Past Treatments  Of Past You Would Never Believe


Normally we regard our ancestors to be one among nature, healthy and strong. The treatment for any illness such as cold, fever or anything just needs a cup of herbal tea or a chicken noodle soup. No great illness and no pills; this is what we think about them.  But there have been some horrible medical practices and treatments that you could never believe

 

Do you consider dental treatments to be painful? Normally our dentist would ask us to wear braces and some headgear. Now look at this one, see how painful it can be. This invention is called as Dr Clark’s spinal Apparatus. This invention was used for the people who suffered from scoliosis.

 

Now, look at this now. Ever thought of a heroin as a medicine? On olden days heroin was used as a medicine for coughs, cold and to heal pains. In reality, heroin can ruin our lives and make us a slave to it.

If you are allergic to heroin, then there’s another miraculous drug that can heal you. It’s radioactive water! This was a quack medicine which was sold to gullible people.

Can you believe that in 1885, Lloyd Manufacturing sold cocaine drops as a medicine to relieve toothaches?

 

Not every time the drugs were used, machines were also used to cure a certain illness like polio. This is called as Iron

Lung.

The process of tanning first came into use in 1925. This is used to treat vitamin deficiency during the winter season.
