  1. I'm not gonna lie here, I found this really funny. I mean like I have a project due tomorrow and I have like 2 hours which if u look at it, should be a long time but I always get sidetracked but this, this was something that made me laugh and not worried that I'm gonna be so embarassed that tomorrow I'm gonna be the only one without a project done. But anyways this is a great way to finish thing fast.

  2. Yeah, that Arabian guy, he was not just a genius for his time
    Some countries were ahead for that time
    But that guy was ahead of them for so many centuries before 😂
    He was something like a joykill 🤣

  3. India. A form of cataract surgery, now known as 'couching, was found in ancient India and subsequently introduced to other countries by the Indian physician Sushruta (ca. 6rd century BC), who described it in his work the Compendium of Sushruta or Sushruta Samhita

  4. Just a note..Hippocrates actually means the one with the power of horse or just horse power from hippos (horse) + kratos (power). Also Ancient Greek medicine was more advanced than the video presents..Greek physicians performed tonsils removal ops (with a hooks that ripped the tonsils out)..treated some sort of cranial wounds (there was a specific tool for that, called skull screw) well as ops to remove limbs among other things (in no chronological order)

  5. Trotula is a group of three texts originally without author names, including a Latin compilation that gathered some of the therapies proposed by Trota of Salerno. Her fame was well spread as far as France and England by the 13th century. Being a rough ensemble of texts without much appreciated identification, Trotula was reworked in new editions including by people centuries later who didn't know they were initially three different texts and some confusion led to even mislabeling its date from medieval to ancient. The first text only mentions male sources: Hippocrates, Oribasius, Dioscorides, Paulus, and Justinus. The second text is the only one of the three that mostly overlaps another known paper which bores an author name: Trota of Salerno, which immediately led to the name Trotula, 'little work of Trota'. The 2nd text itself didn't have Trota's name though, and was apparently a modified copy by another autor. The ensemble spread out of Italy and more confusion ensued as now people started assuming the name of the author was literally Trotula, an ancient sounding name, who wrote all texts. In the third text the author refers to himself with a masculine pronoun and he credits specific practices to Muslim women. Due to a progressive and accumulated lack of knowledge and confusion, as new editions tried to fit assumptions for consistency, the author or authors were in practice given as unknown before Modern times. Then in the 1970s, second-wave feminism rediscovered Trotula and started propagating the conspiracy of Trota being "systematically written out of history". This conspiracy is of course taken to be beneficial to justify the socialist agenda the Green Brothers make sure to push here without you noticing it. You can read wikipedia's articles on Trota of Salermo and Trotula better, more accurate information than what you get here.

  6. All living things with in this system are composed of five elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Life was linked to the movement of special fluids, which was the objects of medical treatments. Life was ultimately built but of a smaller number of elements and good health meant balancing fluids and elements in the right way. And also Trotula became foundational to gynecology and all other topics related to women's health. But you might got know that this foundation text on women's health was written by a woman. Because her identity was systematically written out of history until the late 20th century.

  7. Too much of one of the 4 humors , namely Black bile would cause melancholia.
    If I were constipated I'd be sad as well lol. But balance in important as is preventive medicine as well as proper diet
    and exercise. The balance of the 5 elements are important .
    This is why we take vitamins , they have your metals like copper zinc iron , and minerals
    That is the earth . Drink water stay warm and exercise that is the fire and breathe air which is the intake of the air element. Here all the 5 elements speaks to a modern western use of the 5 elements but the asians understand the true science of balancing these 5 elements and reading the imbalance just by feeling your pulse and the chi with they're hand.

  8. 5:56 just saying Marcus Aurelius was a total badass who had a an immense understanding of discipline and self control. He was probably the most powerful and rich person in Rome during the time, but, he still had such a strong control over himself that he never abused his power (at least from stories I’ve heard of him). If you have the time I would recommend you read his book “Meditations” it had an immense impact on me and can help you have great control over your actions and reactions to to things. Anyways that’s all I had to say I just like the fact that he was very briefly referenced in this video and figured I could leave a comment about him.
