Contribute to a class "remedy journal" by researching interesting, out-dated medical treatments. Include information on how treatment of certain diseases and medical conditions has improved over time. Each page of the remedy journal should contain information on the type of condition, its causes, and how it was treated in the past. Include a "current treatment" section to show how the condition is treated today.
Visit these web sites for information on how certain illnesses and medical conditions were treated in the past. You may need to do additional research if you choose a specific topic. Make sure your teacher approves all Internet searches before you begin.
