Healing and Resonance in Ancient Egypt

  • Healing and Resonance in Ancient Egypt
  1. £4.95

A full appreciation of the richness, and current relevance of ancient Egyptian healing practices has yet to find its way into contemporary literature. Not only did the Egyptians practice surgery, but they also engaged in modes of therapeutics which are today being employed by complementary and holistic healers.

Egyptian medicine was very pragmatic: a patient considered to be in need of medicinal drugs was so treated, surgical procedures applied when needed, and if a patient exhibited serious mental or psychological symptoms, resonance and ritual therapeutics were utilised ranging from affirmations, to therapeutic dreaming, and specialised ritual.
