Most medical interventions were either bullshit or actively harmful for most of history. Today, we have a greater array of useful interventions than in the past (useful meaning they have a small positive effect on outcomes), but we still have lots of interventions that are popular despite lacking sufficient evidence to demonstrate efficacy.

It was shit until the modern era. No anesthetic, no germ theory, no X-rays, no pills. Some work from the Pre-modern era is still used, like Hippocrates suggestion of diet and exercise to combat sickness and leeches can be used efficiently with modern knowledge.

When can you actually say modern medicine started to be a thing?
Very late 18th century?
