Walking is man’s best medicine.”

― Hippocrates

 

Known as the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates was a Greek physician from the 4th-century BC. He is recognized for his lasting contributions to the medical field by establishing it as a scientific study and not just a philosophy. One of his most important books was ‘Aphorisms,’ in which Hippocrates wrote short proverbial principles on health and medicine. He discussed the secrets to long life, the importance of a healthy diet, appropriate amount of sleep, cures for pleurisy, pneumonia, melancholia, vertigo, dysentery, epilepsy, coughs, and which season each disease is most likely to occur.

 

This 1735 English edition of Hippocrates includes the aphorisms from Celsus’s “De Medicina”, translated and collected by Conrad Sprengell.
