Medicine and doctors can be traced back to the very beginning of civilization. Initially in each practically every family there was someone who functioned as a doctor or healer. They eventually came to be those that recognized as being better and they became the village healer. These people were thought to both have a personal connection to the world and to the energy flowing through the world. There use became so prevalent that there came a Time when they were the most important people in society, and the kings, queens and emperors would depend on the skills and the counsel to rule.
Problems developed because many Faith Healers made so many outlandish claims about their abilities but ultimately they proved to be incapable of following through on those claims. As a result the profession suffered greatly. Coupled with this was the emergence of medical doctors who had standardized treatments and formalized education. They were soon filling the communities with a new type of medicine that was based on historical fact and trial and error.
