Eric Yarnell will present and discuss the ancient Egyptian Ebers Papyrus and its historical and medical significance to modern naturopathic medicine.

The Ebers Papyrus is generally regarded as the oldest extant book of any kind, and it happens to be an herbal formulary. After reviewing the history of the scroll and understanding something about it linguistically (including problems with its translation), we will review some of the prescriptions and consider their meaning in a modern herbal therapeutic context. Some of the ancient Egyptian materia medica will be reviewed.

Eric Yarnell, ND, RH (AHG), is a core faculty member in the Department of Botanical Medicine at Bastyr University. He co-owns Heron Botanicals and has authored many botanical medicine books and articles. He maintains a naturopathic medicine practice with a special interest in men’s health.
