  • They did not have very good doctors and finally got medicine in 1800s
  • Really? Is that why everyone that is dead smells bad?
  • People started spreading myths around about health and hygiene that there is around today. 
  • Did you know that disease is spread by bad odor?
  • They assumed that the odor from the body resulted from the sin or souls. 
  • Run! He smells bad!  We're all going to die!!
  • People often meditated prayed, pilgrimages, and other nonmedical methods.
  • Ummmmm. Calm down and relieve my pain. Oh, ouch! That hurt!
  • FIre means yellow bile or choler, water means phlegm,  earth means black bile,  and air means blood. If all these elements are not even, it wouldn't be good for us.
  • That's confusing...
  • Four humors, or body fliuds, were directly related to the four elements:
