Hippocrates.is called 'the Father of Medicine', circa.B.C.E. 460.
He was a Greek physician who laid the foundations for helping restore to health those unwell. He advocated advice which became known as the Hippocratic Oath. healing of scientific medicine by freeing medical study from the constrains of philosophical speculation and superstition, he challenged the notion that disease was punishment sent from the gods, discovered the connection between human disease and poor environmental conditions; his ability to make accurate clinical observations led him to the concept of preventative medicine; he is traditionally but inaccurately considered the author of the Hippocratic oath, an oath of ethical professional behavior sworn by new physicians; among the more significant works of the Hippocratic Collection is Airs, Waters and Places, 5th century BC, which, instead of ascribing diseases to divine origin, discusses their environmental causes; the idea of preventive medicine, first conceived in Regimen and Regimen in Acute Diseases, stresses not only diet but also the patient's general way of living and how it influences his or her health and convalescence
Hippocratic.adjective
Hippocratic oath
In its original form, the so-called Hippocratic oath prohibited participation in surgery or abortions; many of today's medical schools impose a revised and modernized version of the oath as an admonition and an affirmation to which their graduating classes assent.
   One version, approved by the American Medical Association, is as follows: You do solemnly swear, each by whatever he or she holds most sacred that you will be loyal to the Profession of Medicine.(loyal to the association controlling the profession; what about the patient coming first? it's the old story of 'sewing it all up for the self first', still the same today).and just and generous to its members; that you will lead your lives and practice your art in uprightness and honor.(like what happened to bring them to what we see all too often today with the lies, deceit, misinformation, 'protect the association above all' 'cover your ass', 'me first' actions evident today?); that into whatsoever house you shall enter.(they used to come to you; it was unthinkable that a sick person would have to traipse through society from the comfort of his or her bed to get to see a doctor after a wait around other sick people in a doctor's office), it shall be for the good of the sick to the utmost of your power.(today it's to the utmost of drug knowledge possessed), your holding yourselves far aloof from wrong, from corruption.(and so we see a reason for the medical associations - to protect themselves from their errors), from the tempting of others to vice, that you will exercise your art solely for the cure of your patients.(few today are cured, only symptons relieved and so the sickness returns and/or gets worse), and will give no drug, perform no operation, for a criminal purpose.(is it not 'criminal that the medical system kills more people annually than die in vehicle accidents?), even if solicited, far less suggest it that whatsoever you shall see or hear of the lives of men or women which is not fitting to be spoken, you will keep inviolably secret.(secrets are betrayed daily in reports sent to authoritative bodies); these things do you swear; let each bow the head in sign of acquiescence; and now, if you will be true to this, your oath, may prosperity and good repute be ever yours; the opposite, if you shall prove yourselves forsworn....comprised from Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.
