I know we are in the 21st century and our technology is progressing more and more. Our advances in the field of medicine are more noticeable, since we now have cures against diseases that were never thought to be found. But the truth is that before all this there was only one way to be able to alleviate of the illnesses and all this we go back to the prehistoric time, where its only resource was the nature like means of survival.
