So You Think You Need a Doctor: 18th Century Medicine That Will Make You Happy You're Alive Today

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

During the 18th century, London was making great strides in medical theory. The days of mysticism, magic, and the humours were phasing out for new scientifically based theories. At a time when evidence-based results meant that the medicine worked when the symptoms went away, many chemicals were used that we would now consider dangerous or toxic. Come learn what remedies a doctor may have prescribed for you if you were to get sick in 18th century London.

Owner, Liddle Sicks
I have been researching 18th century infectious disease in London, since 1994. Over the past 5 years, I have presented throughout the continental US on scholarly medicine, popular remedies, and vampirism in 18th century London. "Liddle Sicks" is my jewelry line, created to support my research and travel costs.
