Modern medicine has gone to the extent of preserving life and curing the most incurable diseases. Cancer is not a curse anymore. Heart attack? Have an open heart surgery or an artificial valve or a vein grafted from your leg.  Does a fetus have an anomaly? Don’t worry. Doctors have robotic arms to perform surgery with incredible precision. They will also put the baby back into the mother’s womb. Incredible isn’t it. 

But modern medicine comes with a price tag and a whole lot of reactions if put all together can be named into a new disease. This makes us think, what did our ancestors do right that humankind has survived millions of years and has not gone extinct?

The most famous herb is Camellia Sinensis or simply called tea. Originated in China but now spread across the world. Back tea, green tea, oolong tea and yellow tea are all different cured forms of the same leaf.
