Greek Medicine is traditionally considered as the source of modern medicine and, more recently, also of the Mediterranean diet. Though essentially correct, this idea hides more than it tells about Greek Medicine. A search of ancient manuscripts in libraries worldwide has revealed a whole wealth of texts that had been overlooked thus far, whereas they offer a much more complex vision of ancient Greek Medicine characterized by a fundamental wisdom in the management of daily life, health, and disease.
