Kos Worldwide Influence - What Did You Know about It?

Kos worldwide Influence might have reached many countries near Greece and far from it. If this historical experience has reached many countries, it is because of the methods of Hippocrates, the Greek father of medicine. So, it is in general the Greek worldwide influence.

I do not anticipate, but I have some memories (that encourage me to explore this topic) about similar treatments of illnesses simple people practice in other parts of the world, especially that connect to witchcraft and magic to explore what they look at, as natural causes of diseases.

I'll take here only two places, I know about. If you knew of such treatments in other parts of the world, please be helpful to add it here through the form, so other readers could benefit from it too.

In the treatment of Asthma in Sudan for example, Kos worldwide Influence and of course it is the Greek influence, may appear clear. The intuition is that, Asthma happens because of the climate.

That is a natural cause of the disease, and that is why some people consider Asthma to be not a disease. Some call it a healthy disease, though and think that somebody with Asthma will not suffer from incurable diseases.

Other people call Asthma the disease of the prophets. That takes the disease to a religious medium. According to the natural cause, some people use a tree similar to the witch hazel but bigger and has bigger leafs and fine stems to treat Asthma.

The witch tree produces distillate syrup from its bark. But that similar tree produces a tea like surup. Some people with Asthma take the stem and the leaves from the soft branches, boil them in water like tea and drink that liquid to cure Asthma.

Some traditional sheikhs provide these treatments to their patients and friends as well. The stem cells as thought to be cure the Asthma. This doesn't mean that it is the way to cure such illness.

Could the nature be also the cause of dysentery?

Kos worldwide Influence seems to get into this too, as some people and some medicine doctors among them suggest using garlic instead of taking capsules, pills and medical syrups.

The treatments of illnesses that include herbs are indications or measures to explain the connection between nature and some diseases. Religious people from different cultural backgrounds use herbs they call herbs of the Lord, or herbs of Allah to cure such anticipated diseases caused by nature.

Other local fortune-tellers use papers; papers are originally from trees, to write some words on them. The patient should then burn them on embers and then inhale the smoke to cure other diseases especially when the patient is believed to be bewitched or touched by envious eye.

Many practices in this regard could refer to Kos worldwide Influence in many countries in the world. All of this is because of Hippocrates medical endeavours.

Hippocrates in Context: Papers read at the XIth International Hipocrates Colloquium University of Newcastle upon Tyne 27-31 August 2002 (Studies in Ancient Medicine)

Modern studies showed that medical thought and practice of other civilisations in the Mediterranean, such as Babylonian and Egyptian medicine were contemporary experiments to the experiment that the Greek worldwide influence owe to Hippocrates medical treatments.

This reference has a point of interest including the relations between the writings of Hippocratic and other medical authors of the fifth and fourth century BC, such as Diocles of Carystus, Praxagoras of Cos, as well as Plato, Aristotle and Theophrastus.

Hippocrates on Ancient Medicine (Studies in Ancient Medicine)

This reference is useful to scholars of ancient medicine and ancient philosophy, as well as anyone concerned with the history of science and scientific method in antiquity.

It presents an up-to-date Greek text of On Ancient Medicine, a new English translation, and a detailed commentary that focuses on questions of medical and scientific method; the introduction sets out a new approach to the problem of the work's relationship to its intellectual context and addresses the contentious issues of its date, authorship, and reception.
