( from a site about Fenugreek)

The plant has been used in the oldest medical regimes to stimulate lactation in both humans and animals. Unani Tibb, the system of botanical medicine and dietetics developed by the Persian physician Avicenna, lists fenugreek as being an effective curative for coughs, tuberculosis, bronchitis, fevers, sore throat, neuralgia, sciatica, swollen glands, skin eruptions, wounds tumours, sores, asthma and emphysema. In fact, in Eastern medicine, it is prized so highly that The Prophet Mohammed issued the dictum: “If you knew the value of fenugreek, you would pay its weight in gold.”
