RamBam

"The eternal providence has appointed me to watch over the life and health of Thy creatures.
May the love for my art actuate me at all times;
may neither avarice nor miserliness, nor thirst for glory or for a great reputation engage my mind; for the enemies of truth and philanthropy could easily deceive me and make me forgetful of my lofty aim of doing good to Thy children.
May I never see in the patient anything but a fellow creature in pain.
Grant me the strength, time and opportunity always to correct what I have acquired, always to extend its domain; for knowledge is immense and the spirit of man can extend indefinitely to enrich itself daily with new requirements.
Today he can discover his errors of yesterday and tomorrow he can obtain a new light on what he thinks himself sure of today.
...Thou has appointed me to watch over the life and death of Thy creatures;
here am I ready for my vocation and now I turn unto my calling."

 

~ The Oath of Maimonides (a traditional oath for physicians)

 

His full Hebrew name is Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon (Hebrew: רבי משה בן מימון‎‎), whose acronym forms "Rambam" (רמב"ם). The Doctor that was Maimonides: History records Maimonides as a clinician of great skill and caring. His renown resulted in an appointment as court physician to the Sultan Saladin, even as he declined an invitation to serve as personal physician to King Richard the Lion-Hearted. Yet he catered to royalty and common folk alike. He treated both rich and poor, Jew or Gentile. Medicine was a sacred calling. He disapproved of the use of charms and amulets, denounced the practices of charlatans and quacks, and taught his students to always treat the patient as a whole person. (to read more, click here)

It is from Rambam that we draw the inspiration to provide a home for the information humanity seeks to heal.  Both in this website and on the land of the New Hampton Healing Farm, you will find an abundance of references to ancient medicine and a breadth of herbal resources growing wild on the land.  It's nature's invitation to come and learn about the gifts we've been given so that we may return to a natural state of Being.
