Black bile

The ancient Greeks, Romans and Persians believed that four “elements” or humors – blood (haima), yellow bile (chole – “choleric”), black bile (melan chole – “melancholy”), and phlegm (phlegma – “phlegmatic”) – influenced a person’s health and temperament.  If the elements were out of balance, a person’s health and mood would be affected.

Medieval drugs, potions, and poisons mostly fell under the category of "folk medicine," because the majority of them weren't approved or created by trained physicians. The basis of learned medieval medicine was mostly from Ancient Greek and Roman teachings, focusing on "The Four Humors" (blood, phlegm, yellow bile, black bile) instead of the herbs, plants, spells, and incantations that were associated with medieval potions and drugs. Most couldn't afford trained physicians. - Spencer Hawk
