Aims and Scope
Nature is the ruler of everything and offers an alternative to traditional medicine. While professors continue debating the appropriate medical methodology, easily obtainable natural remedies can lead to a speedy recovery.
This is the basic attitude of Theodorus Priscianus (around AD 400) whose recipes are based on natural remedies promise a successful treatment from head to toe (or more precisely: from hair loss to toe graft) to restore beauty and health. The author can be seen as a pioneer of a popular Naturopathy.
