The medical writings of Moses Maimonides have been treasured by generations of physicians. This book looks at his medical practice demonstrating how he conducted his consultations, diagnosis, and treatment. It gives readers a clear understanding fo the efficacy of his medication and how he understood the problems of his patients. Here, his writings on diet and exercise are examined with scientific rigor and his approach to medical ethics, women's diseases and leprosy are also considered. Compiled by scholars familiar with Maimonides' writings, and with material from the Cairo Genizah, a comprehensive picture of the context of his medicine emerges.
