Medieval remedy for modern day superbugs

I found this
article amazing. It shows, at least, that before the modern scientific method, there were people experimenting with cures for diseases as the modern
scholars found that any single ingredient in the ‘potion’ had hardly any effect on modern superbugs. It raises the question once again that how much
do we actually know in the modern era since it seems highly unlikely that this cure was arrived at by chance. I guess the researchers will spend some
time deciphering why the cure works as well as it does since the cause of the effectiveness of the remedy is still unknown.

What think you ATS? Are there more cures for ailments awaitng discovery in old manuscripts around the world? Should we take a more serious stance
towards ancient knowledge even though that knowledge was not cooked up by the modern scientific method?
