Since the birth of scientific medicine in the late nineteenth century, disease has been explained in terms of microbial, genetic, and biochemical mechanisms instead of in terms of humoral imbalances. Nevertheless, there is still a place for humoral concepts in describing the subjective experience of illness and facilitating patient-health care provider communication.
