Modern Medievalism.... in medicine?

This is the first time I've ever considered medicine to fall within the purview of Modern Medievalism. But yes, an old Anglo-Saxon treatment (from a work called Bald's Leechbook, no less) works effectively against MRSA. See link here.

"Take cropleek and garlic, of both equal quantities, pound them well together… take wine and bullocks gall, mix with the leek… let it stand nine days in the brass vessel…"
