The Humors: Are They Truly the Enigmatic Fluids of the Body? There is not a more misunderstood concept in the history of medicine than the humoral theory. One of the large misconceptions is that the humoral theory started in Greece in the fifth century BCE with the works of Hippocrates and was expanded on by Galen. Such complete attribution to the Greeks is very common in the Western literature since most writers do not bother to check pre-Greek resources nor do they have access to non-Western literature.

Most of the biochemical reactions of the cell will take place only within the proper narrow ranges of temperature and acidity. For example, the cellular enzymes that are responsible for catalyzing all biochemical reactions are the most sensitive to changes in temperature, acidity, and hydration. The levels of metabolic chemicals must be maintained in very narrow ranges to be compatible with life. Therefore, disorders and diseases are measured by very small but significant differences in these levels, within narrow ranges.
