We’ve come full circle

I have a malady: 
2000 B.C. - Here, eat this root.  
1000 A.D. - That root is heathen, say this prayer.
1850 A.D. - That prayer is superstition, drink this potion. 

1940 A.D. - That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill.  
1985 A.D. - That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic.  
2010 A.D. - That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.
