Describing a doctor from the 14th century and what they did.
A DOCTOR FROM THE 14TH CENTURY
Hi! I'm a 14th century doctor!
Doctors help people who are believed to be sick and do the best they can with the limited medical education they have.
Though doctors diagnose patients medically, Christian people believe that illness is a punishment from God, and others rely more on the astrological view of medicine. Many doctors also believed that taking blood out and staying sanitary was the most effective way to cure.
For example, this boy has been coughing up blood recently and needs medical attention. In this case, I would prescribe that the boy receive herbs from my friend, the apothecary to help him.
Doctors during this time period in England don't advance in the medical field like the Romans and others until the 17th and 18th century. Right now, we are limited but we help people as much as we can.
