Hippocratic medicine

We have now reached a point of paradigm shift in medicine where disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment must respond to the human organism according to its state of homeostasis (meaning its ability to regulate its own internal environment), taking into account relationships, feelings, exposure to the environment, and especially connection to the wider cosmos. We must explore the self-corrective ways of¬†vis medicatrix nature¬†(‘the healing power of nature’), one of the guiding principles of Hippocrates medicine.
