Define: Medicine

I felt compelled to read up on the meaning of the word ‘medicine’. Not because I’m not aware of the meaning, but because I was curious of the alternate meanings of the word. Out of everything I found, this is my favorite:

Medicine: any object or practice regarded as having magical powers. An object held in traditional American Indian belief to give control over natural or magical forces.

Yessss. Who doesn’t want magical powers?

I also like this:

Medicine: the science and art dealing with the maintenance of health and the prevention, alleviation, or cure of disease.

I believe that sounds like the definition of Naturopathic Medicine. Reading the dictionary is so enlightening.
