Creating Waves of Awareness

A Physician As Defined By Dr. C. F. S. Hahnemann

To be a genuine practitioner of the medical art, a physician must: 
 1. Clearly realize what is to be cured in diseases, that is, in each single case of disease (discernment of the disease, indicator),
 2. Clearly realize what is curative in medicines, that is, in each particular medicine (knowledge of medicinal powers),
 3. Be aware of how to adapt what is curative in medicines to what he has discerned to be undoubtedly diseased in the patient, according to clear principles.
 In this way, recovery must result.

Adapting what is curative in medicines to what is diseased in patients requires that the physician be able to:
 1. adapt the most appropriate medicine, according to its mode of action, to the case before him (selection of the remedy, that which is indicated), 
 2. prepare the medicine exactly as required,
 3. give the medicine in the exact amount required (the right dose),
 4. properly time the repetition of doses.
 Finally, the physician must know the obstacles to recovery in each case and be aware of how to clear them away so that the restoration of health may be permanent. 
 [If the physician has this insight, discernment, knowledge and awareness ,then he understands how to act expediently and thoroughly, and he is a genuine practitioner of the medical art.

Hahnemann's basic definition:

The physician's high and only mission is to restore the sick to health, to cure, as it is termed.1

1 His mission is not, however, to construct so-called systems, by interweaving empty speculations and hypotheses concerning the internal essential nature of the vital processes and the mode in which diseases
originate in the interior of the organism, (whereon so many physicians have hitherto ambitiously wasted their talents and their time); nor is it to attempt to give countless explanations regarding the phenomena in diseases and their proximate cause (which must ever remain concealed), wrapped in unintelligible words and an inflated abstract mode of expression, which should sound very learned in order to astonish the ignorant - whilst sick humanity sighs in vain for aid.

Of such learned reveries (to which the name of theoretic medicine is given, and for which special professorships are instituted) we have had quite enough, and it is now high time that all who call themselves physicians should at length cease to deceive suffering mankind with mere talk, and begin now, instead, for once to act, that is, really to help and to cure.

 Definition by wikipedia : A physician—also known as medical doctor, or simply doctor—practices the ancient profession of medicine, which is concerned with maintaining or restoring human health through the study, diagnosis, and treatment of disease or injury. This properly requires both a detailed knowledge of the academic disciplines (such as  anatomy and physiology) underlying diseases and their treatment—the science of medicine—and also a decent competence in its applied practice—the art or craft of medicine.

Both the role of the physician and the meaning of the word itself vary significantly around the world, but as generally understood, the ethics of medicine  require that physicians show consideration, compassion  and benevolence for their patients.

Life is short, and Art long;
the crisis fleeting; experience perilous, and decision difficult.
The physician must not only be prepared to do what is right himself,
but also to make the patient, the attendants, and externals cooperate.
