Egyptian medicine

Egyptian health cannot be characterized by one word – good or bad. Generally speaking about the medical system in this country, it works well, but if you try to analyze the situation in the modern Egyptian state, it is difficult to believe that the medicine of Ancient Egypt was considered the most progressive and developed. Today, the health situation leaves much to be desired, professional help can be obtained only in large Metropolitan areas of the country, the regional centres and in some hospitals catering to tourists.

Egypt has a required number of educational institutions that provide the country with medical specialists, for the most part they are gaining experience in regional hospitals, working there with doctors of advanced age. Experienced and promising doctors with the necessary skills can be found only in large medical centers of the country.

The health insurance system in the country exists but it is developed very poorly and, in fact, access to free medical services is not all the indigenous people of Egypt, they have to turn to the paid care that is widely practiced. It is impossible not to notice that prices for private clinics and other medical services is quite high. Access to besplatnamuzika has most (but not all) employed citizens of the country.

About misconceptions and present medical situation in the country

The allegation that the medical situation in Egypt is perfect unfavorable, somewhat exaggerated.

Introduction and cultivation of medicinal plants.

Introduction of medicinal herbs provides an introduction to the culture of wild plants both within the area and in new areas where these species do not occur. It includes two main aspects:

— the study of biologic peculiarities of plants in new conditions;

– development of a system of farming cultivation of medicinal plants;

The term “introduction” is closely linked to the notion of “acclimatization”, “naturalization” and “cultivation”.

ACCLIMATIZATION – adaptation of plants to new climatic conditions.

NATURALIZATION – the highest degree of acclimatization, during which the plant not only grows well, grows and reproduces independently, without compromising the cenoses of other species in the struggle for existence.

CULTIVATION – cultivation of medicinal plants (RL) to industrial scale according to the recommendations of agrotechnics of cultivation in the circumstances for the purpose of obtaining high quality raw materials.

Introduction is a complex process. The biological aspect includes the following questions:

– the limits of endurance of introducint;

– adaptive features (response to light, temperature, humidity soil, air, etc.); Continue reading


A health treatment that does not fit into standard western medical practice is called “alternative” or “complementary.” This includes many different therapies:

Traditional healing practices such as ayurveda (Fact Sheet 702). Chinese acupuncture (Fact Sheet 703). and Native American healing (Fact Sheet 708)

Physical therapies such as chiropractic, massage, and yoga

Homeopathy or herbs (See Fact Sheet 704 on Chinese Herbalism)

Energy work such as polarity therapy or reiki

Relaxation techniques, including meditation and visualization

Dietary supplements, such as vitamins and minerals (Fact Sheet 801)

Some health care providers like to use alternative therapies along with western medicine. They think alternative therapies can reduce stress, relieve some of the side effects of antiretroviral drugs (ARVs), or have other benefits.

Some health care providers don’t like alternative therapies. They think there hasn’t been enough research on them. They think that patients always do better if they use only western medicine.


Alternative therapies are very popular. In the United States, over 70% of people with HIV have used some kind of an alternative therapy. Many people use them regularly. Some healthinsurance plans pay for therapies such as chiropractic or acupuncture. Continue reading
