Animals who know how to treat people

“Uh-uh, my friend, but you have a neurosis! Take you a cold shower and an hour ride on horseback – as a hand lift!”. Fun recipe, right? Especially about horses. But this is very real advice of highly respected physicians. And what is most interesting, indeed, as arm lift.

Treated at the stables

Even the name of this “cure” is invented – hippotherapy – therapy with horses. It is strongly recommended that, among other things, disorders of the musculoskeletal system, arteriosclerosis, polio, chronic gastro-intestinal diseases, prostatitis, scoliosis and even mental retardation.

Yes, fools from horses grow wiser, but show me a tablet that have the same effect? This is not? So-and-so!

Knowledge of the ancient Egyptians in the field of the body structure were quite high for its time and can only be compared with the achievements of Indians, with the reservation that the Egyptian texts date back to the II Millennium BC. and Indian medical treatises – the first centuries of our era.

In the middle of the II Millennium BC the ancient Egyptians described the major organs: brain, heart, vessels, kidneys, intestines, muscles, etc. However, they are not subjected them to special study, which is due, in all probability, to the influence of the dogmas of religion.

The Egyptians belongs to the first extant description of the brain. It is given in the Edwin Smith papyrus (CA. 1550 BC, is a treatise on surgery), in which the brain moves in the open wound is compared to “a boiling copper”. The ancient Egyptians noticed that brain damage causes painful condition of other parts of the body (for example, paralysis of the limbs), and thus, laid the natural-scientific ideas about the brain.
