Ancient Egypt has many mysterious stories in long history of world civilization, and mysterious veil cannot be lifted until today. What mysterious information does Egyptian pyramid contain?
Why was Sphinx built next to pyramid as a beast to suppress evil? What is connection between pyramids found on Baimo seabed and Egyptian pyramids? All this threw a veil of mystery over Ancient Egypt.
The mystery of ancient Egypt gave birth to endless dreams of scientists of subsequent generations, especially disputes on many issues have been going on for centuries, and there is no winner.
However, through research and analysis by later historians, they found that Egypt had very advanced surgical techniques and medical equipment in the making.
The Egyptians are considered earliest ancient civilizations in world to use surgery and physiotherapy programs, so that Rome, which conquered Egypt before it was destroyed, did not surpass Egyptians in medical skills.The world's first qualified female doctor
In 2700 B.C. e. The first woman doctor appeared in world, and she was Merit Ptah from Ancient Egypt.
The reason she was declared first female doctor qualified to practice medicine, in addition to her superior medical skills, is most importantly that she is a woman. At that time in Egypt there were already initial shoots of gynecology. . . .
Many women of palace nobility had hidden diseases and needed treatment, so emergence of female doctors laid a solid foundation for birth of gynecology.
Of course, there are still very few women doctors in this era, and most of women doctors are mainly employed in work of royal women doctors.
But emergence of female doctors opened a new chapter.After almost a thousand years of maturation, in 1825 BC, a book on obstetrics and gynecology, Cursive Gynecology, appeared in Egypt.
With advent of knowledge in field of obstetrics and gynecology, this further contributed to development of gynecology. They fully demonstrate that development of ancient Egyptian medicine played an extremely important role in guiding future generations.
Based on these theories, ancient Rome began to further deepen level of knowledge of obstetrics and gynecology, and expanded the details of obstetrics and gynecology, such as production, childbirth, child care, rehabilitation, etc., so ancient Egyptian medicine had a profound influence on development of ancient Roman medicine.
Although many medicines in ancient Rome inherited mantle of Egyptians, true transcendence was never realized. In terms of development of gynecology alone, they are all extensions of Egyptian gynecology.
The achievements of ancient Egypt in medicine were mainly associated with surgery, so what is reason for success of surgery in ancient Egypt? How did ancient Egyptians use medical devices to treat patients without anesthesia?The sharp knife of Egyptians
Of course, sharp weapons of Egyptians in medicine are associated with their skillful technology for making medical surgical instruments.
The ancient Egyptians forged extremely sharp basic surgical equipment, be it surgical scissors, a scalpel for evisceration or a looper for threading needles, it's all boutique.
The sharper knife and arrow, less trauma to skin, and, of course, blood loss during surgical incision will be much less.
Looking at these problems from a different angle, using a blunt knife to cut damaged part will naturally increase area of injury, which not only fails to achieve goal of operation, but can also cause secondary injuries.
Of course, no matter how powerful scalpel is, it will cause bleeding and pain, so how did Egyptians stop pain and bleeding? The Egyptians, including entire West, discovered Mafeisan more than 1600 years later than ancient China. How could they ease pain without Mafeisan?
Although anesthetics were discovered late in Europe, analgesic effect of opium poppy was discovered very early by ancient Egyptians. Taking it before surgery stimulated nerves of ancients and had an analgesic effect.
Therefore, under sharp knife of skillful surgeons, success rate of ancient Egyptian doctors was very high, even after many years of decline of Roman Empire, it still did not surpass classical Egyptian surgery.
Of course, poppy was used by ancient Egyptian doctors during surgical operations not as a cure for addiction, but to stimulate brain nerves of people and reproduce pain-relieving effect. The use of this method to make patient lose sense of pain has, to a certain extent, played a role of anesthesia.
Apart from successful use of superior medical skills, sharp scalpels and poppies instead of anesthetics, ancient Egyptians also discovered a more beneficial method of treating disease. It took many years of methods to further consolidate effect of surgery. What is this new treatment?Smokey physiotherapy
The Egyptians generalized many treatments in primitive medicine, such as itching on body, they would use herbs for smoking and frying, and natural herbs for smoking and frying would have a double effect. First, direct smoking bugs and flies causing problems. Second, use burning vanilla cigarettes to treat bite.
In ancient times, medical conditions were extremely poor, and bite of a small insect could cause irreversible and terrifying illnesses. Therefore, it is undoubtedly best to quickly undergo a course of physiotherapy.
During roasting process, patients reported feeling great pleasure. Not only do I smell vanilla, it also makes my body and mind happy, heals a wound, and place where it is smoked is also very comfortable.
The ancient Egyptians began to accumulate information about the effect of different herbs on different healing processes, especially which herbs were used for which diseases, how many herbs were used, how long they were smoked, and so on.
The fumigation treatment of ancient Egyptians is actually what we call physiotherapy in modern medicine. When Egyptians suffered from leg and back pain, they smoked and roasted herbs to treat painful parts of herbs and stretch out under gentle aromatherapy . The principle of thermal expansion and cold contraction was used by ancient Egyptians in physiotherapy medicine.
This type of physical therapy not only treats persistent joint pain and nerve pain, but also plays a very important role in rehabilitation physical therapy after surgery.
The ancient Egyptians used their own medical practice to create their own medical mythology, allowing expansion of ancient Egyptian civilization.Summary
While studying vanilla incense, ancient Egyptians used effect of incense to repel mosquitoes and flies, and also used it in ancient Egyptian physiotherapy, which had a miraculous effect in treatment of diseases.
And they treated various diseases and intractable diseases with help of physiotherapy. Among many mummies, some mummies were found equipped with wooden prostheses, which proved that surgery of ancient Egyptians had developed to unimaginable proportions. .
Despite fact that ancient Egyptian civilization was eventually overrun by Romans, Romans did not adopt medical skills of ancient Egyptians. The Egyptians had mature methods of physiotherapy and surgery with a high success rate, and were not surpassed until decline of ancient Rome.
