Dr. William H. Adams provides his original translations of several ancient texts by Hippocrates in, The Natural State of Medical Practice, Volume 2: Hippocratic Evidence ($43.99, hardback, 9781545667293; $37.99, paperback, 9781545667286; $9.99, e-book, 9781545667309).

In Volume 1 of this series, Adams contended that the Greeks might have reached our current level of medical knowledge much earlier if they had been permitted to continue their research unimpeded. These translations provide more in-depth evidence for this claim.

“This volume contains the author’s new translations of several important Hippocratic works that reveal the clinical perspicacity of Hippocratic physicians in the 5th C BC,” said Adams.

He is currently a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, and holds a post-graduate diploma in clinical medicine of the tropics (London).
