Secrets of the Cherokee Medicine Man

Cherokee legend says animals created human disease when they grew tired of men hunting them. The medicine man observed the effects of plants on animals when diagnosing treatment for sick tribesmen. In 1971, the Food and Drug Administration concluded a study on 2,000 Cherokee medicines and found 39% to be effective.
