* Bloodletting
"For many centuries, blood-letting was considered a tried and true remedy for certain conditions. It was recommended for fevers, inflammations, a variety of disease conditions and, ironically, for hemorrhage." While this on-line exhibit from the UCLA Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library mainly features images from the Early Modern period, bloodletting was an important medical practice in the Middle Ages and so the information here might be of interest.
