DON'T GET SICK! Is one way of explaining the medical side of ancient Rome.

As you might have figured out ancient Roman Doctors were not really advanced. Of course they had not invented anaesthetics, but they had not even thought of knocking you over the head with a bit of wood before under going surgery. You had to sit there and watch the Doctors hack you apart.......

Roman Doctors did have medicines, they had to mix them with honey to disguise the awful taste. I would not want to even think what was in the medicine.
Most of the time the medicines did not work anywayz.

Romans were not stupid though, before going into battle, they carried with them a first aid kit.

FACT: Ancient Romans were the first to invent fake teeth.
