The Secrets of Egyptian Traditional Medicine

The Egyptian civilization was a beacon in history by its science and its cultural manifestations. The Egyptians built the pyramids, the paths hidden in the mazes and a very strong system of traditional therapies, the many unknown factors and results of which seem downright mystical to the modern society. As we study the Egyptian culture, we see even nowadays that the Egyptian civilization attained a peak of development in the history of humankind. Their deeds and their achievements, though, do not seem to fit in their age and in the history of the society of their time.

Beliefs in Ancient Egypt

The Egyptians thought that man is born physically healthy. Disorders occur because of a polluted living environment, and of a planet that broke its connection with divinity. Very developed though they were, the Egyptians did not think they had enough culture to understand divinity. According to the Egyptians’ beliefs, the human body gets sick both because external and internal factors. Diet was vital for health; food abuse or starvation harmed equally the body. If food is not well digested in the stomach, the putrefaction processes occur, a thing that may lead to death. Among the external factors, they also mention polluted air, maggots that are transmitted from animals to everything, causing infections, and insects that make blood exchanges between various species.

The Egyptian physicians thought there were special channels for blood circulation. The divinity blows energy into them constantly, thus maintaining the human body. They ascertained the patient’s health condition by feeling his pulse and by comparing it with their own pulse. They gave a special attention to each patient. They could tell a pregnant woman and they could tell the fetus’ gender by using bamboo leaves and salt. The gender was ascertained with great accuracy every time; there was no mistaking it ever. Taking into account the fact that the pregnant woman’s urine helps cereals grow, the testing was done in the following way: were the pregnant woman to give birth to a boy, wheat grew stronger where she had urinated; were a girl to be born, barley grew. It is a proven and genuine testing method, one that Europeans successfully used, too, in the Middle Ages

An Egyptian woman gave birth crouched in a squatting position, supported by another woman; the latter one held her hands upon the pregnant woman’s knees, holding her. Women used to breastfeed their children until the age of three. To ensure fertility and the future baby’s health, the Egyptians used extracts of various herbs mixed with crocodile fat and acacia juice, ingredients that have proven their therapeutic value to this day. However, this formula, containing several more herbal admixtures, has potent effects for both sexes.

Diseases and Treatments in Ancient Egypt

The main data about a person’s health were provided by the mobility of the neck. Where there was reduced mobility, the physicians started running tests, because it was the first sign of disorder.

Again, the Egyptians proved to be among the first civilizations mastering the embalming technique, by methods unequalled to the present day, as well as the method of preserving the human body.

The Egyptian physicians also had notions of surgery. They performed surgeries successfully and treated multiple injuries countless times. The flesh wounds were sewn by thread and needle, using special techniques. On the first say of sewing, the wound was dressed in animal meat to prevent bleeding. Animal meat has a coagulant effect in contact with human flesh.

As bandages, the Egyptians used dressings of vegetal fibers as well as medicinal herbs for treatment and quick recovery. In the treatment of the skeletal system they used a mixture of honey and tree resin, which served as plaster; the mixture dried and held the bone immobilized until recovery. Honey was widely used, because it has certain properties: it absorbs water, dries the wounds, destroys the microorganisms and stimulates the production of leukocytes and antibodies.

In the case of infections, the Egyptians used various herbal mixtures with antibiotic effects, but it was compulsory that they should contain wheat mould. The Europeans will borrow the technique later, yet it would be incomplete, because you have to live in Egypt to know all he secrets of the Egyptian medicine. As antiseptic, they used frankincense, wine of dates, turpentine, and acacia tea.

Power of Nature Based Treatments

The herbal mixtures with hallucinogenic and analgesic effects were used as anesthetics in the more severe cases. In the less severe cases, they used mixtures of medicinal herbs and acupuncture. As anesthetics in amputations, they used a mixture of water and vinegar to which they added marble powder. The mixture triggered a chemical reaction releasing a gas that froze the wound. Therefore, the Egyptians were the first who used cryogenics and who knew the methods.

The Egyptians took from the depths of the Earth what materials they needed for the manufacture of their medical utensils: they went inside caves; they descended almost as deep down as lava pits; they took the metal and made various instruments out of it, including the medical ones. They knew that burning a wound with a hot metal would stop the hemorrhage. In traumatology, they used various rods for immobilization, made out of various materials. Thus, a series of drawings were found in architect Ipudji’s sarcophagus of various layouts of the rods around the bones. There is also a mummy with screws dating back to this period; the screws were used to fix in place and to reconstruct the broken bones.

For the treatment of burns, the affected areas were dressed in sheepskin. Before dressing, the patient was disinfected with goat milk, acacia flowers and leaves. They changed bandages for 14 days. After 14 days, the wounds were completely healed, no scar left.

For the treatment of cough, they did inhalations with honey, yoghurt, goat milk, maroons and milled seeds of dates.

For migraines and severe headaches, they mixed herbs with catfish powder (made up of dried and milled tissue). The effect was spectacular. For earaches, they used warm onion juice.

Egyptian Medical System 

The Egyptian medical system was well organized; there was a distinct hierarchy: the physicians were called “metseni”, out of which derived the term of “medicine”. The physicians’ symbols were a scalpel, the medical bag and a man sitting. There were women, too, in the history of the Egyptian medicine, who stood out in the medical practice. The first famous female physician is Peseshet of the 6th dynasty. Medical practitioners were in the greatest number; they treated people working in mines and on ships. There were physicians specialized in all the branches of medicine, but they only intervened where general practitioners could not cope. The physicians of upper rank did stomatological treatments. The physicians were assisted by bandagists (it is a job mentioned as such in the papyri). It is generally assumed that nurses fell into this category as well as all practitioners of average medical training. The Egyptians managed herb production and the range of herbal products, a science similar to modern pharmacology.

Medical Facts Recordings

In the papyri named after their finders (Ebers, Edwin-Smith, Hahun) as well as in the Berlin papyrus, they describe ORL disorders and treatments, dating back to the year of 1,300 before our era. The Greek Hermes, who was a physician himself, translated the six books of papyri containing the Egyptian physicians’ code. The Egyptians described brain pulsations and brain with plenty of details.

The respective material is also described in the Edwin-Smith papyrus, 1,200 years before Hippocrates’ time. Therefore, the hypothesis was debated that Hippocrates studied medicine with the Egyptians, in Egypt, but at a later age to that of the Egyptians’ huge discoveries.

In Ebers papyrus, they speak about blood circulation, thousands of years before William Harvey (16th century). They also describe the method of cranial percussion 30 centuries before Leopold Auenbrugger (17th century). This is the only hermetic book ever discovered. In his works, the Greek Kliment mentions about the existence of the 42 hermetic which are hidden to the public eye, as they are written by Imhotep himself. The Book of the Dead is among them, also written by Imhotep. In the Egyptian medicine, Imhotep is known for his discoveries; he is also called “the physician of everybody’s life”. Imhotep’s duty was to take care of the pharaoh’s health. Nobody knows when he was born or when he died. They even built a pyramid to the Egyptian gods, named after Imhotep.



Nowadays the Balkans is an area spared of the active, polluting industry of the rest of the planet. Thousands of years ago the Balkans were very sparsely populated, which made it possible for anyone to occupy it and settle there.

Because of the favorable climate, the Balkans was occupied by Slaves, Greeks, Turks and by other smaller migratory nations who came from the Asian parts as a rule. All of them found here good earth and climate for development and for the future. In the Balkans, both the climate is very good and the drinkable water is pure, taking into account that there are many mountainous massifs that make it possible.


Traditional medicine has deep roots in each nation’s cultures and customs. In the past it used to be very closely connected with religion. As a rule, the priests of various religions (and we must mention here that each nation had its deities) were also physicians. As a matter of fact, medicine and religion have been intertwined or very closely connected ever since there was a recorded history of Earth. Here we must mention the examples of Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islamism. It is a proven fact that, in all religions, irrespective of the deities they believed in, the physician was also a priest in 70% of the cases.

Obviously, it is easy to understand why there used to be such a close connection at the beginning of the civilizations. The reason is that religion means unity, connections towards a goal, namely mysticism and deities. Or, medicine means treatment of the body. In old times, mysticism and treatment of the body were connected. Traditional medicine is as old as the human being, because – when the human being has been born – he needed medical care; only the traditional medicine could provide such care. The Balkan physicians treated rich and poor alike; it didn’t matter how rich you were, it mattered only how ill you were and what the priorities were.

Writing on little stone slabs dating back thousands of years bear evidence that physicians in the Balkans made an oath before gods, an oath by which they engaged themselves to treat all patients, irrespective of their wealth. Skulls were found, dating more than 5 thousand years back, bearing marks of surgery, namely trepanations, which had been so accurately performed, that surgeons envy the precision of the intervention even today.

Hence a lot of questions arise: what devices could the first generations possibly have had, as long as metals and metalwork were discovered only much later? How did the surgeons at that time know to perform this kind of surgeries, when the science of surgery discovered them only much later? How could possibly exist writing techniques so advanced that the stone slabs were made to last for thousands of years without being completely eroded?

Physicians of those times were a highly respected category. We can infer it from the drawings that were found, depicting the deity, the priest and the physician as well as the figure of the last one wearing a crown on his head, which meant that he was the king of the people. We find in the same writings that 1) a sick man was treated according to his ailment (it is what we call diagnosing today); things like: 2) how the ailment occurred (we call it the cause of the disease today), 3) how to get rid of the ailment (treatment) and 4) the history of the disease and the methods to eradicate it (which stands for pathology today).

In old times, people used to guide themselves in the traditional medicine after certain principles such as: life is full of pain and suffering; life is the cause of all this pain; pain can be eradicated and, not in the least, there is a direction or a way leading to the eradication of all pain. In other words, unless we eliminate the causes of pain, we cannot find the real salvation or the salvation in truth. At the beginning, they practiced traditional medicine as moral duty towards each suffering man, not as somebody’s duty, somebody who would be praised for that. Later, this moral duty became a job, and it has remained a job to this day. The first civilizations may have been right. The traditional medicine should have been and should be only the moral duty of every man to help his kin even nowadays.

At the beginning, the first civilizations who settled in the Balkans created a special branch in the medical field: health and the role of medicine for a healthy population. Because there were – and are at present, too – many nationalities in the Balkans, each of them had a god of health. Therefore several deities are known as the god of health, such as: Telecfor, Iazo, Panaceea, Asclepios, Macsaon, Podalirii and others. Orpheus, the Thracian god of medicine and music is well-known. At a much later date become known the works on philosophy and medicine written by Plato, Socrates, Pythagoras, Aristotle, Hippocrates and Galen.

One of the greatest physicians ever known, one who successfully treated every disease in the old times was Orpheus. He used to treat a great number of affections through herbs. The herb by means of which he treated the best is known as HABERLEA RHODOPENSIS today, or commonly called the Orpheus’ flower. It successfully treats generalized cancer, but only if it is used in combination with very many other herbs. Orpheus’ successor, Zamolxis – both a physician and a high priest – was the patron and the representative high figure of Thracian medicine.

Information can be found in Herodotus’ works about Zamolxis and about the downright wonders he worked through traditional medicine. In Plato’s writings, in Harmid to be more precise, they say among other things: Zamolxis was the Thracians’ emperor, but also their god. As their god, he helped his subjects get cured of every disease, by means of herbs. In the course of time, the Balkan medicine has proven that it can treat any affection by its methods, namely by herbal hydro-alcoholic extracts, dressings of medicinal herbs, in natural state or chewed. At the same time, it proved that you cannot treat the eye without treating the body, but also that you cannot treat the body without treating the soul.

Obviously, the Greek people acknowledged after a long time that the condition of one part of the body influenced the condition of the entire body. The Balkan traditional medicine proved that the soul is the source out of which everything, good as well as evil, would reflect upon the body and which would generally define the personality. The Balkan traditional medicine proved that we had to treat the problems of our head in the first place. Consequently, the rest of our body would be healthy. In the way he set up the medical science, even Hyppocrates, 460-377 before our era, father of modern medicine, was directly influenced by Zamolxis’ treatment principles.

Fundamentally, the Balkan traditional medicine employed water, herbs, music and the dialogue with the patient. The sick man was taken out in the sun, in the middle of the forest, when they applied him various procedures, it is a known and acknowledged fact. As he was treated, he could also listen to the song of the birds and to the music of the nature.

The Slave peoples, the Bulgarians, the Serbians, the Macedonians and the Thracians believed that it was demons that caused the disorders and the affections. They also thought at the beginning that the evil spirits’ kiss brought the herpes or that evil spirits make children cry or make them trip and break a bone. They also believed that fairies or moires helped people get cured and helped them find the healing herbs. Later they believed that Tangra, their supreme god, taught them how to treat their kin and what herbs they should use. Much later, the medicine of these peoples came to a balance and the category of physicians was born who treated the population by means of herbal extracts, water or other things. The sick men were treated at their home or on the battle field by the traditional medicine physicians. The first known hospital dates back to the year of 369 our era. Later, the sick men were treated in an organized manner and within the precincts of every monastery.

In the course of time, the Balkan traditional medicine has had a very important role in the world. The herbal treatment is very rich in minerals, vitamins and many other things. The traditional medicine knows approximately 750 thousands medicinal herbs on Earth, out of which about 300 thousand ones are from the Balkans. In the traditional medicine, each part of the plant, such as the leaf, the flower, the stem, the fruit or the root – is used for something, either by itself or in combinations. Modern medicine has studied the effect of each herb scientifically. That is why we often find combinations between the herb or a part of it and biochemistry. Traditional medicine rejects this combination because – while by herbal extract or plain pure herbs the result is guaranteed – by combinations it is nothing but experiments.

It has been proven so far that, through its experience and history, the Balkan medicine has treated and it still treats over 5.000 affections. According to each particular issue area, the Balkan traditional medicine has its specific and its benefits. The traditional medicine specialist learns and trains himself in traditional medicine, which means that he knows the traditional medicine in all its complexity. Although very complex, the traditional medicine brings and will always bring the solution to each human health problem.

Why Human Diseases Occur?


The human being is healthy only during the intrauterine life. Upon the baby’s first breath, the cells of the body start to die. The human body has the ability to purify itself of the residue left by the death of the cells until the age of 17. After this age the human being loses this ability.

The residues accumulated in the body deposit on the internal organs as fats or as calcifications. When the internal organs are full of these fatty residues, the body starts to gain pounds and in time obesity occurs.

For people who maintain a relatively normal weight during their lifetime, the residues are deposited as calcifications causing the healthy tissue to become fibrous and producing the sclerosis of the internal organs and of the entire body.

The diseases are a result of our life style and of the stress this puts on the human body every day. Under this pressure, the organ most affected by the residue deposits will collapse by falling ill. Thus, the direct connection between the brain and the sick organ is broken. The sick organ starts working chaotically, as its activity is no longer coordinated by the brain properly.

Considering the fact that the health of an organ depends on the health and normal activity of another, the entire human body becomes ill after one organ falls ill. This chain reaction is started when the first organ gets sick and at first will produce metabolic imbalances. In time, the other organs will get ill, as the connection between the brain and the organs is interrupted.

The traditional medicine that I practice balances the body’s activities and it’s functions so that the process of purification is restored and the residues accumulated in the body can be eliminated. At the same time, the connection between the brain and organs is restored and they will able to resume their functions at optimal levels. When the treatment is finished the cellular structure of the internal organs is completely renewed.

The results of this treatment are influenced on the gravity and stage of the body’s affections and imbalances.

The town of Gabrovo is situated at the northern foot of the central part of the Balkan mountains, on the Yantra river, in the immediate proximity of the geographical centre of Bulgaria, approximately 220 km from the capital Sofia and 300 km from the town of Varna. It is an attractive tourist centre, famous for its mountain clear air, historical and ethnographical sights and cultural monuments. Gabrovo and the area around it is considered one of the most ecological regions in Bulgaria. It is also popular as the Capital of Humour and Satire.

Gabrovo originated during the 14th century. According to a legend, the settlement was established by Racho Kovacha (Racho the Blacksmith) However, archaeological remains in the city centre proved that the settlement existed as early as the 12th century.

During the National Revival period, Gabrovo was an important centre of crafts and trade. It had connections all over Europe and the Middle East. Its inhabitants embraced the advanced ideas of the period and the town became the cradle of Bulgarian education and culture. In 1835 the first Bulgarian non-clerical high school was opened in Gabrovo by Vassil Aprilov, who donated the money for the building.


After the Liberation of Bulgaria in 1878 the textile, leather and machine-building industries were fast-growing in Gabrovo. Education was further developed too. The famous Aprilov School became well-established and one of the first technical schools in Bulgaria was opened. It was named after the Gabrovo patriot Dr. Nikola Vassiliadi, who donated the money for the building.

Gabrovo cherishes the tradition to be the educational, cultural and spiritual centre of the region. It is famous for the Festival of Humour and Satire, held every year in May and opened by a glamorous carnival along the central streets of the town.

Preventing violence in long-term care


Violence is a daily occurrence at many healthcare facilities. The traditional flashpoint for violence has typically been the emergency department of an acute care hospital, however other facilities such as assisted care facilities and skilled nursing facilities encounter crime and violence on their campuses as well.

Due to the wide range of facilities that provide long term care service, numerous factors can influence the type of crimes most often encountered in these settings. Common violence encountered in the long-term care service industryis residents assaulting staffor each other.

Maintaining adequate security in these facilities can be challenging for a variety of reasons including campus design, residents who may suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments, the potential for criminal activity due to patient valuables and residents’ inability to recall details.



Assisted Care- Sometimes referred to as assisted living, retirement homes, or personal care facilities, are suitable for individuals who need very little daily care. Residents may need medication assistance and some assistance with activities of daily living. Assisted care facilities allow individuals to remain independent as long as possible in an environment that maximizes the person’s autonomy, dignity, privacy, and safety, as well as emphasizes family and community involvement.1


nursing homes-Nursing homes, also called skilled nursing facilities, provide a wide range of health and personal care services. Their services focus on medical care more than assisted care facilities. These services typically include nursing care, 24-hour supervision, three meals a day, and assistance with activities of daily living. Rehabilitation services, such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy, are also available.2 Although it may differ with individual companies, security is frequently left in the hands of staff and administrators in these types of facilities.

Continuing Care Retirement Communities – Often referred to as a CCRC or life care communities, these offer different levels of service in one location. Many of them offer independent housing (houses or apartments), assisted living, and skilled nursing care all on one campus. Healthcare services and recreation programs are also provided. In a CCRC, where you live depends on the level of service you need. People who can no longer live independently move to the assisted living facility or sometimes receive home care in their independent living unit. If necessary, they can enter the CCRC’s nursing home.

Some of the largest CCRCs can be compared to a small town or community. These campuses can sprawl hundreds of acres with on-site amenities such as banking and postal facilities, golf courses, restaurants and bars as well as beauty salons and massage therapy studios. Many also have a full-time security department with uniformed security officers who provide a wide-variety of security services to residents and staff. Some officers may be trained as first responders with additional skills such as emergency medical technician training.

Rehabilitation Facilities – These are typically part of a skilled nursing facility. Common patients include those recovering from joint replacement surgery or those that have been hospitalized for a long period of time. Other commonly encountered patients are those suffering from the effects of a stroke and traumatic brain injuries. These types of patients can result in an increased risk of violence toward healthcare providers. Assaults on staff, and patients displaying aggressive behaviour are commonly reported incidents encountered by staff when interacting with these patients.4



Providing safety and security to residents of a skilled nursing or assisted care facility can be challenging yet rewarding. Personnel at these facilities provide protection for a vulnerable population who are dependent upon others for their safety and security. While crime and violence may occur in all types of health care facilities, assisted care and skilled nursing facilities are unique due to the many residents who may suffer not only from physical disabilities associated with aging, but also from differing degrees of cognitive impairment. It is imperative that facility administrators and those that are responsible for security, recognize the threats and vulnerabilities associated with these facilities and ensure proper prevention and mitigation steps are in place.

Promoting Senior’s Independence

Promoting independence

Older adults are scared of losing their independence more than they fear death.

Promoting independence in self-care can provide older adults with the capability to maintain independence longer and can leave them with a sense of achievement when they complete a task unaided.

Older adults that require assistance with activities of daily living are at a greater risk of losing their independence with self-care tasks as dependent personal behaviours are often met with reinforcement from caregivers. It is important for caregivers to ensure that measures are put into place to preserve and promote function rather than contribute to a decline in status of an older adult that has physical limitations.

Caregivers need to be conscious of actions and behaviors that cause older adults to become dependent on them and need to allow older patients to maintain as much independence as possible. Providing information to the older patient on why it is important to perform self-care may allow them to see the benefit in performing self-care independently.

If the older adult is able to complete self-care activities on their own, or even if they need supervision, encourage them in their efforts as maintaining independence can provide them with a sense of accomplishment and the ability to maintain independence longer.


Elderly-friendly interior design plays a vital role in promoting independence among senior people.

One great example for this can be integration of Internet of Things in residential interiors. Smart homes have a plethora of sensors in the house to monitor patterns of an individual. It provides remote monitoring system which allows caregivers to keep a track of the daily activities of elderly even from distant places. Due to this, adults can live on their own confidently knowing the fact that a feedback alarm will be sent to their caregivers immediately in case of any emergency.

This not only allows the aging population to maintain their independence and confidence, but also brings peace of mind to their friends and family.


Enhancing resident independence

Encouraging Independence in Seniors – Maintaining Quality of Life

As a caregiver, it is important to encourage independence in seniors and to provide the opportunity for them to maintain a better quality of life for themselves. By participating in activities with your senior loved one, you show that you care, and you help improve their overall health. In fact, research indicates that keeping seniors physically, mentally, socially and emotionally engaged can help them retain better cognitive function, stay healthier and live independently longer.

As the seniors in our lives grow older, daily interaction is vital to their healthMaintaining Quality of Lifeand happiness. However, when caring for them, it is easy to get into the habit of doing things “for” them rather than “with” them. Let’s face it — it can be more efficient to do everything yourself. Seniors are seasoned pros at doing things for themselves, but due to aging bodies or underlying health issues, aspects of everyday living sometimes become a bit more physically and mentally challenging. Seniors may need your help, but doing everything for them is not a good solution, nor does it cultivate a better quality of life. Instead, we recommend a technique called interactive caregiving.

Interactive caregiving is a method of caring for seniors that promotes physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. When put into action, this philosophy focuses on the person as a whole, helps seniors live the highest possible quality of life by keeping them happy and engaged, and fosters healthy independent living within their own homes.

The true art of caregiving for the elderly extends beyond task-oriented responsibilities and includes engaging in activities that help maintain a healthy spirit and body. Talk to the senior in your life to help determine what his interests are, then form a plan to do those things together. When planning your activities, keep the elements of interactive caregiving in mind.

  • Physical activity, which should always be approved by the senior’s physician, helps reduce the severity of illness, increases strength and reduces the risk of falling. Dancing can reduce high blood pressure, strengthen bones and lower the risk of heart disease. Dancing with friends also provides a social outlet that stimulates the mind and can reduce the effects of dementia. Activities such as gardening and house keeping inspire positive self-esteem and improve quality of life.
  • Socializing with family and friends, as well as attending parties or other events, makes seniors feel less isolated and promotes good memory retention. The effects of being socially active are just as beneficial as physical activity in terms of self-esteem and higher quality of life, which is important to note for seniors who are unable to exercise.
  • Mental stimulation, such as crossword puzzles or other brain games, keeps minds active and facilitates healthy mental and emotional function. Mental well-being fosters a sharp mind and a positive outlook on life.
  • Emotional well-being depends on several factors, such as feeling connected to family and friends, being involved in the community or taking on a hobby. Emotional stability helps seniors feel happy and optimistic, which can keep depression at bay.

Encourage seniors to help with tasks they are able to perform, such as folding laundry and writing a grocery list. Play a game or work on a puzzle, read the paper over a morning cup of coffee or take a walk together after lunch. Shopping together provides another form of exercise and the chance to do something together. Planting flowers and other gardening activities are not only fun, they also provide a sense of accomplishment when you both step back to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

There are many more activities that can improve the quality of life for seniors. Use your imaginations and work together to plan fun things that will transform even the most mundane daily activities into special memories that last a lifetime.
