Meanwhile, the droppings of dogs and crows were prized for treating colic and dysentery, respectively. Pig urine fought fevers, and the roasted flesh of “well nourished kittens” relieved jaundice.
When letting blood, the “patient” would hold on to a pole to make their veins more visible. The barber would then place leeches on their arm and after a while extract them and wipe the blood up with a cloth. The blood soaked cloth would then be wrapped around this pole. Have you ever seen the outside of a barber shop and a rotating pole with red stripes? Well, it’s believed that it originated from the barber’s old practice of bloodletting.
Physicians would prescribe the leeches for all types of illnesses; everything from headaches to pneumonia. Leeches were prescribed so often by physicians, that the doctors developed a nickname and were actually referred to as “leeches”. Leeches also had a cosmetic role during the 1800’s. Women would apply them around their face, as they believed it gave their face a more glowing, radiant look.
