Traditional Medicine in the Colonial Philippines
Traditional Medicine in the Colonial Philippines, 16th to the 19th century by Ma. Mercedes G. Planta is compiled from the records of Spanish missionaries who collected and studied Philippine medicinal plants and herbs that Filipino traditional medical practitioners or herbolarios had been prescribing since the precolonial period. Because the herbolarios left no writings about their practices, the missionaries' works have become the primary sources for studying Filipino traditional medicine.
