Many people reproach the Hippocratic oath, knowing neither the oath, nor the fact that it stands for. I’ll fill in for You the gap to a converted Soviet ideology oath of the doctor, not hung over Your mind. A literal translation of the Latin literary … Warm sea lulling, monotonous rustling of the waves. This flat stone was his favorite place. Sea spray did not reach him, but he felt the humid air filled with tiny droplets of salt water. Hence it was seen a Temple of Asklepios and the road to it parted in olive trees on the island of KOs. The endless horizon of the eternal sea on one side and the road to the Temple on the other were the foundations of his philosophy – a philosophy of life. “Someday…” – he thought, – “…of all the healers of bodies and souls will be doctors of philosophy. Only confessing philosophical approach to learn the balance, the violation of which leads to disease. Because the disease always comes either from excess or lack, i.e., from the unbalance. Part of the disease comes from lifestyle. And humanism, mercy and humanity is originally a philosophical concept”. On the beach, laughing and talking loudly, were his disciples. He gave them one last job, him a exam and now eagerly for the results. The disciples drew near and reverently bowed their heads. The most senior of them began his speech: “we Revered and deeply respected Teacher! You gave us an assignment to summarize what we have learned and all that we delved into these years. To put together Your wisdom, knowledge and experience that You gave us. Are You ready to listen to us?” The teacher silently nodded and smiled: “I’m ready!”. First student solemnly began: “We decided to call it a vow. And we start it with profound gratitude to those who taught us and will to learn! I read taught me medical art equally with my parents, to share with him their wealth and, if necessary, to help him in his needs, his progeny assume their brothers, and this art, if they want to study it, to teach them gratuitously, and without any contract; instructions, oral lessons and everything else in the teachings to tell his sons, the sons of his teacher and students, bound by obligation and oath to medical law, but no one else.” Next came the second student: “I direct a mode of patients to their benefit in accordance with my ability and understanding, refraining from harm and injustice. I won’t let anyone ask me a lethal drug and does not show the way for such a purpose; similarly, I will not be awarded to any abortion pessary. Pure and undefiled I will conduct my life and my art. I in any will not do section in patients with stone disease, giving it to the people involved in this . In whatever house I entered, I will enter there for the benefit of the patient, being far from all intentional, unjust and damaging, especially from love Affairs with women and men, free and slaves.” It was the of the third: “What would the treatment — and without treatment — I neither saw or heard about human life that should not ever disclose, I keep silence about believing such things a secret. Me performing the unbreakable vow, Yes, this is happiness in life and in art and glory to all people in perpetuity, the same transgressors, and giving a false oath Yes will reverse this…” – a third disciple sighed and continued, “But we all came the question of whether this oath to raise the issue of the remuneration of the physician?”. The teacher frowned, “I taught You to be not just doctors. I taught You to be philosophers, like my teachers Gorgias and Democritus. Name me one philosophical current where you want shining to others to burn out and into a candle? To do so can only the Gods. And You… people. Re-read “the Oath”… If You swear to honor Your teachers along with Your parents, do those whom You will help, after coming such a long way of learning and knowing the truth – will not honor You? It is not even discussed… You passed the test and pleased me. Write the oath in different languages and tell about it to as many people. The world is so imperfect. I don’t want over time, future lieproof twisted these words to fit their flawed ideology and imputed to the physician in charge to be poor… I think people are wise enough not to crucify their saviors…” the Wind changed its direction. The sea was rough. The sun hid and covered the solemn and eternal Temple of Asclepius. The teacher was wrong… the summer ends 380 BC… Natalia Yaremchuk (C), our medical History🚑💉💊
