The French Whisperer
Sleep and ASMR Storyteller
This bedtime/ASMR story is about medicine and healing since the Neolithic. I tell you about Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, the figure of Imhotep, India, and the principles of Ayurveda, or Chinese Medicine. We also take a look at medicine in Ancient Greece, and how this legacy passed on and was further developed in the Islamic World, Byzantium, and Medieval Europe. Also included, are the Renaissance and the steps that would lead to a scientific approach to medicine and the many discoveries of the 19th and 20th centuries that came with important social change and professionalization.
