Medicine emerging to Ancient Egypt

Medicine emerged into Ancient Egypt around the 12th century. Commonly used to heal are herbs,acupuncture,and prayer. The herbs worked the best. They used the medicine to treat injuries and sicknesses. They used that because the herbs worked better than the medicine,in some cases.

The mummification process

First,the body is taken to a special tent called an 'Ibu'. Then the embalmers clean the body with a scented wine, then washed off with water from the Nile. Then, the embalmer`s men cut into the left side of the body and remove most of the internal organs. Then, they cover and stuff the body. After forty days, the body is covered with water from the Nile and covered with oil to keep the skin elastic. They place the organs in hollow canopic jars. Lastly, they wrap the whole body in linen.

This is important to us today

This Is very important to us today because today we might have not have discovered that herbs healed better that early. Next, we wouldn't have as much knowledge about medicines until probably around the 1300`s or so.
