MEDICINE AND MAGIC
Egyptian doctors knew that the heart pumps blood to the body and knew the nervous system.
They believed that humans thought with the heart and the brain was useless.
To become a doctor they passed their knowledge from father to son
They prepared drugs to cure diseases and also recommended rest and above all hygiene.
Illnesses were caused by evil spirits entering the body. So prayers to the Gods were important to cure the people.
