Although cleanliness in the Middle Ages was primitive compared to what modern people enjoy, it doesn't mean medieval hygiene didn't exist. Despite living in an era long before indoor plumbing, shampoo, and nail salons, people used the best hygiene practices they could. Unfortunately, they didn't have a lot to work with. Peasants had it especially bad and weren't often able to afford luxuries like more than one set of clothing. For the lower classes, personal hygiene in the Middle Ages meant keeping clean however you could, even if it wasn't easy.

@*• Sugary Miinxio •* and within a week knowing absolutely nobody the poor peasants would over take you and relieve you of your riches or you could buy yourself a personal security force but don't think the upper class might gather wind of you at which point your knowledge might be much more rewarding than your gold ever could be, just saying

At that time, india was much more ahead in hygiene ( apart from outdoor toilets), champoo was originated there along with super cheap clothes and neem brush, coal soaps, itar (perfume-for nobels), etc and in hindu tradition person cannot enter kitchen to cook without taking a bath

Wow! First time I've been disappointed by you guys at Weird History. I've studied history and have found all your stuff functional, factual and funny..... oh you were one of my by gone lecturers..... but this time you disappoint, you have given natural therapies, my second Masters degree, a bit of a hard wrap, admittedly, administered by fools in the cases you site but guys..... come on, before chemicals reproductions were developed thatsvwhere we had and used properly with a heathly lifestyle, I am sure you will find have great potential to rise again to replace the all too common crap we put in our bodies in the last 20 life times. How about an episode about natural therapies. But beware because as in all things there are a lot of shisters out there...... Start here ...Saint Hildegard of Bingen, who knows you may learn a thing or too along the way PS How about an episode on Alvin Toflers, Future Shock? Please Keep up the good work Eric☆

By the year 3019 there might be some people that are gonna list down 25 reasons why living in the 21st century sucks. Of course the world is huge and there are definitely gonna be negativity in every time period. I’m fine with focusing on the present which is the 21st century now.

I think we should stop using the term "doctor" for those Medieval pseudo-scientists who basically were as ignorant regarding sicknesses and their causes as any other person during that period. Knowing a bit about human body doesn't make them doctors as they were absolutely into the dark and couldn't help with most diseases. I assume most elders and people with knowledge about herbs and their medical uses were actually more useful in treating diseases

in medieval times i think you pretty much bunch up a fist full of herbs and stuff your pants and armpits like a holiday turkey and walk around crunching leaves and twigs in your places.
