Cicuta=(Talamponay). En Filipinas yo no sé que es la Cicuta; á lo menos yo no la he podido encontrar. En este supuesto y siendo indispensable poner un equivalente de ella en este tratado para la curación del Cancro, observé que en la disertación de Linneo intitulada Medicamenta Graveolentia, se propone para aquel caso la Datura de la cual es una especie la que los indios llaman talamponay.

The swiss physician Tissot wrote this book "Advice to the people in general, with regard to their health", to help lay people cure common ailments and diseases if professional medical care is out of their reach. Father Manuel Blanco the noted Spanish priest, who is also known for his book "Flora de Filipinas", translated the book into Tagalog and included comments and notes pertaining to the Philippine situation in the late 1800s.

The book is an interesting read on how diseases and ailments were cured at that time. Some cures are shocking to say the least but maybe there is some scientific basis for it? Afterall, a lot of the so called "miracle cures" that are being discovered now seemed to already have been used in the past!
