Introducing a new series. Things you were never taught in school about native Americans. I hope to impart some glimpse at false history and have some fun educating people as well. These will most likely be short and scattered randomly. I will do two today because I want to start the series off right. This will be all for today. Until next week!

Fact #7

Anesthetics

Starting in about 1000 B.C. Native healers used anesthetics from medicinal plants, including coca, peyote, and datura to ease aches and pains.  They also used aesthetes to cause patients to lose consciousness during surgery.

They didn’t even need Obamacare to afford the doctors or the prescription drug plan.
