Medicus curat, Natura sanat morbus
(Physician treats, Nature cures)
The words below belonging to a great Dutch doctor Hermann Boerhaave inspire me.
He who doth with the greatest exactness imaginable, weigh every individual thing that shall or hath hapned to his Patient, and may be known from the Observations of his own, or of others, and who afterwards compareth all these with one another, and puts them in an opposite view to such Things as happen in a healthy State; and lastly, from all this with the nicest and severest bridle upon his reasoning faculty riseth to the knowledge of the very first Cause of the Disease, and of the Remedies fit to remove them; He, and only He deserveth the Name of a true Physician.
(31 Dec 1668 – 23 Sep 1738)
