Bloodletting

Blood-letting was a common practice for almost 2000 years  as a "cure" for ailments such as, but not limited to,  hyptertension, fever, apoplexy, and headache.  "Bleeding" a patient to health was modeled on the process of menstruation. Hippocrates believed that menstruation functioned to "purge women of bad humors".
