Excerpt from La Sorcière: The Witch of the Middle Ages

The only physician of the people for a thousand years was the Witch. The emperors, kings, popes, and richer barons had indeed their doctors of Salerno, their Moors, and Jews but the bulk of people in every state, the world as it might well be called, consulted none but the Saga, or wise-woman. When she could not cure them, she was insulted, was called a Witch But generally, from respect not unmixed with fear, she was called good lady or fair lady (belle dame belladonna tie), the very name we give to the fairies.
