Medicine has been around since life began on this planet. Humans have been practicing it since they could reason. With intelligence and intellect, the knowledge of healthcare became evermore available and the practice of it magical.
The very first western style medical school did not exist till the twelfth century. Long before that, the Chinese, Egyptians, Persians and countless others learned, educated, practiced, and researched medicine for thousands of years. The Academy of Gondy Shapur in ancient Persia, for example, was home to a teaching hospital, library and a center for medical education and research. It was established in the 3rd century and was the primary medical center in the 6th and 7th centuries of Persia and what was then Mesopotamia.
All through history, medical practitioners and healthcare providers served humanity, not for monetary gains or financial reasons, but for the pure life of service to their fellow men. For, to them it was an obligation, not a vocation. Even in the old American frontier many white travelers sought the help of Indian medicine men.
Since the privatization of healthcare however, much has changed to the detriment of patients and providers alike. Telehealth and telemedicine could further break up the integrity and sanctity of this structure. Or it could strengthen the cohesion of it.
The magic of medicine is still very much alive and present. Time to control and ensure its survival is now. In this book, Practicing from the Heart in the age of Technology, I reveal the beauty and rewards of this magic. Come with me to see how and where you can be a part of it.
