Medical – An Overview

The MEDICAL field is one of the best, reputed and respected professional fields in India and abroad. If you possess a mind that bends scientifically and if you would like to serve HUMANITY, then MEDICAL is your right choice! Medical is otherwise called as Medicine & Health Sciences. You know, when we talk about Medical, an image of MBBS rises in our mind. It is NOT so!! Because, there are various courses other than MBBS in the Medical field. However, MBBS is mostly preferred by the students.

The Origin of Medicine :

At this modern age it’s very easy to get treated for a disease. And there are so many disruptive medical revolutions in the recent times. So, how did we get ourselves evolved in Medicine? What is the origin of Medicine? It is actually suspected that, at first, early humans did not think of diseases at all. They thought it’s a part of natural existence or it’s because of God’s curse, and hence there was no need to treat a disease. In fact, when early humans were affected by diarrhoea and eventually when they fell sick during the western civilization, the westerners told them that it wasn’t perfectly normal, it is NOT a part of natural existence and it was not because of GOD either. It was due to PARASITES! So, as a result of fear of dying, Medicine evolved gradually through Indian Vedas, herbs, roots, Chinese & Egyptian texts, Witch Doctors and now Medicine as it is seen today!
