The use of medicine is no doubt coincident with the History of the Human Race; but writers generally agree that medicine first became a profession among the Egyptians. The priests of the earlier nations were the practitioners of the Healing Art, but it does not seem that women were excluded from the right of administering medicine for the purpose of healing the sick, since mention is made of a certain Queen Isrs, who became greatly celebrated among them, and was worshipped as a goddess or health. Although the practitioners among the Egyptians, Assyrians and Jews, were in the habit of employing incantations, which, of course, produced their good and bad im pressions through the medium of the imagination, yet their efii (iency in curing diseases was mainly due to their knowledge of the medical virtues of many of the vegetable products of Nature. They seemed to look up as high as the stars to know the reason of the operation of the Herbs in the various affections of the human race.
