Hildegard von Bingen: Cinnamon is warm and has strong powers. Anyone who eats it often has good juices because it suppresses the bad ones. The person who is afflicted with gout and thereby has paralysis, put the wood and leaves of the tree (as long as they have juice in them) in a steel vessel and pour wine over it and let it boil and drink it often warm and he will be cured become. But a person whose head is full so that it is difficult for him to exhale through the nose, powder the cinnamon and often eat this powder with a bite of bread. It dissolves the harmful juices.
