Herbal Medicine is a technology in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors that can be researched at the Monastery. Once researched, it increases the healing speed of garrisoned units by 300%, so they heal four times as fast. With Herbal Medicine, towers heal 24 HP per minute, and Castles heal twice as fast, at 48 HP per minute.

Herbal Medicine is available to all civilizations except for the Byzantines, Huns, Teutons, Turks, and Vikings.

Herbal Medicine increases the mobility of defensive troops noticeably. Damaged and worn down armies can retreat into Castles and towers, provide covering fire, and then emerge refreshed.

History Edit

"Although classical societies advanced the studies of anatomy and physiology, prior to the scientific and industrial revolutions of the 18th and 19th centuries, medicine was an inexact science built on practical knowledge. First oral traditions and then written accounts passed down remedies and procedures that had been discovered through experience. The principal agent of healing was herbal medicine, the application or digestion of herbal compounds whose curative powers had been discovered through experiment. The presence of specialists in herbal medicine within a Middle Ages town or village was a boon to the inhabitants’ quality of life."
