Black pepper

Black pepper, like many eastern spices, was historically both a seasoning and a medicine. Long pepper, being stronger, was often the preferred medication, but both were used, for such illnesses as constipation, diarrhea, earache, gangrene, heart disease, hernia, hoarseness, in digestion, insect bites, insomnia, joint pain, liver problems, lung disease, oral abscesses, sunburn, tooth decay, toothaches, and suffering from strangury.
