7 Native American Inventions That Revolutionized Medicine And Public Health

November is National American Indian Heritage Month, a time of recognition for the substantial contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S. But, the month and remembrance, like many Native influences, still frequently go unrecognized in our day-to-day lives. Whether it’s the invention of vital infrastructure such as cable suspension bridges or sport for fun like lacrosse, so much of what exists in modern culture today is a direct result of what was created before newcomers occupied these lands.

And the world’s health ecosystem, ranging from preventative measures to administration of medicine is no different, owing much of its practices and innovations to those ancestral peoples and healers.

Here are seven inventions used every day in medicine and public health that we owe to Native Americans. And in most cases, couldn’t live without today:

1. Syringes

In 1853 a Scottish doctor named Alexander Wood was credited for the creation of the first hypodermic syringe, but a much earlier tool existed. Before colonization, Indigenous peoples had created a method using a sharpened hollowed-out bird bone connected to an animal bladder that could hold and inject fluids into the body. These earliest syringes were used to do everything from inject medicine to irrigate wounds. There are also cases in which these tools were even used to clean ears and serve as enemas.     

2. Pain Relievers

Native American healers led the way in pain relief. For example, willow bark (the bark of a tree) is widely known to have been ingested as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. In fact, it contains a chemical called salicin, which is a confirmed anti-inflammatory that when consumed generates salicylic acid – the active ingredient in modern-day aspirin tablets. In addition to many ingestible pain relievers, topical ointments were also frequently used for wounds, cuts and bruises. Two well-documented pain relievers include capsaicin (a chemical still referenced today that is derived from peppers) and jimson weed as a topical analgesic.

3. Oral Birth Control

Oral birth control was introduced to the United States in the 1960’s as a means of preventing pregnancy. But something with a similar purpose existed in indigenous cultures long before. Plant-based practices such as ingesting herbs dogbane and stoneseed were used for at least two centuries earlier than western pharmaceuticals to prevent unwanted pregnancy. And while they are not as effective as current oral contraception, there are studies suggesting stoneseed in particular has contraceptive properties.

4. Sun Screen

North American Indians have medicinal purposes for more than 2,500 plant species – and that is just what’s currently known between existing practices. But, for hundreds of years many Native cultures had a common skin application that involved mixing ground plants with water to create products that protected skin from the sun. Sunflower oil, wallflower and sap from

De Gea facing fitness check after coming off injured in Man Utd’s win at Southampton

Dean Henderson was subbed on to make his Premier League debut for the Red Devils at St Mary’s

David de Gea is an injury worry for Manchester United, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitting the goalkeeper will be assessed by the club’s medical team after coming off injured against Southampton.

The Spain international did not come out for the second half – being replaced by Dean Henderson – after appearing to damage his knee when beaten for a second time at St Mary’s on Sunday.

De Gea dived to his right in a bid to keep out James Ward-Prowse’s free kick, but failed to make the save and collided with the post.

Henderson was seen going through a rigorous warm-up at half-time, and was subbed on for his Premier League debut for the club.

Goal 50 Revealed: The best 50 players in the world

Following the game, Solskjaer spoke to Sky Sports about De Gea’s injury and said he is unsure if he will be fit to face Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday evening.

“Let’s have a little check on him (David de Gea),” Solskjaer said . “Hopefully he can be okay for Wednesday but I’m not sure.”

While United trailed 2-0 at the break, they produced a thrilling fightback and thanks to a goal from Bruno Fernandes and brace from Edinson Cavani were able to secure a 3-2 win.

United dominated after the interval, meaning Henderson’s Premier League bow for the club was not overly taxing, but Solskjaer felt the 23-year-old was polished in what he did.

“Dean played well though,” the Norwegian said. “He’s a keeper who has been used to being vocal. He wants to organise the team. 

“He had a couple of tidy saves to make. He was safe with his hands. After the first half, we played well again.”

If De Gea is ruled out of the PSG game, it will hand Henderson a major stage to operate on.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and co. are likely to provide a stern test of United’s defensive resolve, particularly as PSG trail the Red Devils by three points in Champions League Group G.

A commanding performance from Henderson could make him difficult to dislodge – with a rapid turnaround of games on the horizon.

Following PSG’s visit to Old Trafford, the Red Devils take on West Ham, RB Leipzig, Manchester City, Sheffield United, Leeds United and Everton before Christmas.

Zillennial entrepreneur: Sal Toner of FC Chaos Boxing & Fitness . . . and make sure you smile!

(Zillennials — part of Gen Z — exhibit independence and decisiveness, and are more likely to focus on solving problems and creating ideas, says Joseph Pidoriano, 23 and a businessman himself. The New Dorp resident is one of four young entrepreneurs who we’ll be highlighting who head up local businesses and are demonstrating insight and perspective into their professions during a challenging time.)

Today: Sal Toner of F.C. Chaos Boxing & Fitness

F.C. Chaos Boxing & Fitness is a training facility owned by Sal Toner, 24, and home to one of the most unique fitness communities on Staten Island. With a culture centered around creating healthy and happy customers, F.C. Chaos has two rules: you have to smile the entirety of your workout and you cannot quit.

F.C. Chaos started as Toner Boxing & Fitness after Toner worked 10 years in the fitness community.

“I was inspired to start Toner Boxing & Fitness after a realization that my training not only made people healthy but also played a crucial role in making people happy. Very often my clients would say how training was the highlight of their day. After I learned how much of an impact I had on people, I decided to leave my full-time job in the non-profit sector and partnered with two great people and created ‘Chaos,” said the Graniteville resident.

If you ask any of Toner’s clients what makes the gym unique, they’ll say the same thing: It’s a community when you walk into the gym. You immediately join a group of people with common goals and values. Everyone is there to help one another. It’s not unusual to find a complete stranger cheering for you as you finish that last push up or throw punches on the pads.

Sal says when he shut down in March, the business was only two-and-a-half months old and was steadily growing at the time. Historically, March through May is always busy in the fitness industry as people prepare for summer.

“We weathered the COVID storm well and quickly pivoted to virtual workouts and eventually park workouts. As we return back to the gym the community has never been stronger and we’re quickly growing to a membership larger than before COVID.”

Toner entered the fitness world at age 13 growing up in a boxing gym with a dream of one day opening his own.

Fast forward eight years after saving two paychecks from his job fundraising for a great veterans organization IAVA, and he opened a small boxing and fitness studio. A year later he quit his full-time job, opened a second location and followed his dream to create a company that could make an impact through health, fitness and wellness.

F.C. Chaos is located at 10 Brick Court in Charleston and 12 Bradley Ave. in Meiers Corners. On the web at www.fcchaos.com and on Instagram @Fcchaosfitness and Facebook F.C Chaos Boxing & Fitness

Avoid medicine sold online: doctor

RISK:
Only 10 percent of men with erectile dysfunction seek medical help, with many attempting to treat the condition with pills purchased online, a physician said

  • By Yang Yuan-ting
    and William Hetherington / Staff reporter, with staff writer

A New Taipei City doctor has advised people to avoid purchasing medication on the Internet, citing a patient who had bought counterfeit pills for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Taiwanese Association of Andrology director Chen Yu (陳煜) said the patient, a 40-year-old man, had used the pills for three months without knowing they contained mostly starch.

About half of Taiwanese men above 40 have some degree of erectile dysfunction, Chen said.

Erectile dysfunction is categorized by severity, with those mildly afflicted being able to have intercourse, but not becoming fully erect, he said.

Those moderately afflicted might become partially erect, but are unable to engage in intercourse, while those with severe erectile dysfunction are completely unable to become erect, Chen added.

The rate of occurrence of erectile dysfunction in men under 40 is three times what it was five years ago, he said.

Erectile dysfunction worsens over time if not treated, and as many younger men are embarrassed about the problem and put off treatment, many of those under 40 that he treats already have advanced conditions, Chen said, adding that 5 percent of them have severe conditions.

Erectile dysfunction can be a sign of imminent heart disease, since it is often caused by blocked arteries, generally indicating circulatory problems, diabetes or other problems, association secretary-general Wu Chia-chang (吳佳璋) said.

More than 60 percent of men with erectile dysfunction develop heart disease within three years of seeking treatment for the condition, he said, adding that patients complain that many aspects of their lives, including work performance, suffer from the condition.

Citing research statistics, Wu said that only about 10 percent of men with erectile dysfunction seek treatment, with many attempting to treat the condition on their own with pills purchased on the Internet.

“Companies selling fake medicine see it as an opportunity, with many putting fake labels on their products to pass them off as real medicine,” he said.

Chen said he once treated a patient who had an erection that lasted several days after taking counterfeit medicine he bought on the Internet.

The patient was left with some permanent physical damage, he said.

Chen said he and his colleagues had sent a letter to the online retail platform that sold the counterfeit medicine, and had reported the company to the Food and Drug Administration.

However, as many firms making such products are located outside of Taiwan, which makes prosecution difficult, Chen advised people to exercise caution and not purchase medication online, but to seek treatment from a medical professional.

Fitness: What makes a two-hour marathoner tick?

Article content

One of the more popular displays at running expos prior to some big-city marathons is an oversized treadmill set at the speed of the men’s world record marathon pace. It’s nicknamed the Tumbleator, and runners are encouraged to hop on and see if they can keep up. For most, it’s a humbling experience, and one that clearly illustrates the difference between the pace at the front and back of the pack.

How fast are the world’s elite marathoners? The best time on record for the 42 km course is 1:59.40, which translates to an average speed of 21.1 km/h, or around 2:50 minutes per kilometre. Meanwhile, the average finishing time of a mid-pack marathoner is 4:29.53, which means moving at a pace of about 6:25 minutes per kilometre, give or take.

Admittedly, only one man, Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya, has finished a marathon in under two hours. He did it as part of a Nike-sponsored experiment that put together the ideal set of conditions — track, temperature, wind speed, pacers, footwear and drafting — in an attempt to break the two-hour mark. But it takes more than just the perfect combination of external factors to become a two-hour marathoner. The physiology of Kipchoge and his fellow front-of-the-packers has been largely unknown, until recently: a British researcher welcomed 16 of the best male marathoners into his lab to find out what makes them so fast.

Two Rivers’ Maggie Klinkner aims to be a pediatric dentist

Name: Maggie Klinkner

Parents: Tim and Sam Klinkner

School: Two Rivers High School

Grade: Senior

GPA: 3.67

What extracurricular activities have you been involved with during high school? Throughout high school, I have been involved in student government, Junior Leadership through The Chamber of Manitowoc County, Boomerang, Fact, National Honor Society, Lights Leaders, Advisory Recreational Board, server at St. Peter the Fisherman, figure skating through the Manitowoc County Figure Skating Club, cross country, and track and field.

What is one academic accomplishment about which you feel particularly good? Being able to be involved in so many different things while still keeping up with all my school work. 

Which class or extracurricular activity influenced your decision regarding the career you plan to pursue? My chemistry, physics and advanced chemistry classes. Throughout middle school, science was never a class I really enjoyed, but my views changed when I entered these high school classes. My teacher had a large part in my choice, as she knew how to make the material we learned enjoyable and easy to learn. 

What advice do you have for those just starting their high school career? Don’t take anything for granted; go to that basketball game, go to that musical. High school is only four years long — make the best of it while you are still there. 

What are your plans after high school? I plan to attend Marquette University, where I will major in chemistry. After graduation, I would like to go to dental school and become a pediatric dentist.

What would you like to be doing 10
