My world crumbled, a stable, happy and peaceful life disintegrated in to millions of pieces- from a man I became a patient”. These were the words of one of my patients who suffered an unexpected heart attack. The pain and sadness hidden in these words permeated into the core of my consciousness and my professional evolution- from a physician to a healer began. The Hippocratic Oath is taken by all physicians. In the original form, it requires a new physician to swear by a number of healing gods. The concept of healing is deeply embedded in the Hippocratic Oath. This book reflects my journey to help patients heal from the ravages of disease. Condition: Very good.
