Description from the publisher:
Good health 1000 years ago required attention to the same habits as today as explained by Avicenna in his Laws of Natural Healing (Canon of Medicine), Lecture 12. It also contains O. Cameron Gruner’s extensive endnotes.
The “Prince of Physicians,” Avicenna (Ibn Sina) was born in 980 C.E. in Afshana, near Bukhara. By the age of ten he had learned the entire Quran as well as grammar and then began the study of logic and mathematics. Once these subjects were mastered, he studied physics, metaphysics and medicine.
