Get a New Perspective on Everyday Medical Treatment

The Medicine offers a unique perspective on modern medicine, exploring the challenges faced by both patients and doctors. Written by renowned medical practitioner Dr. Karen Hitchcock, this book takes you to the frontlines of everyday treatment and provides insightful and deeply humane essays on various aspects of the medical system.

In an overcrowded, underfunded medical system, The Medicine provides valuable insights into how to be healthier and how listening carefully to a patient's experience can be as important as prescribing a pill. From the flu season to dementia, plastic surgery to the humble sick day, this book will give you a new understanding of modern medicine.

Discover the answers to important questions about medicine, such as:

  • What happens when a doctor kills a patient?
  • Are GPs overprescribing antidepressants?
  • Does 'female Viagra' work?
  • What role can psychedelics and cannabis play in treating pain?
  • What is sickness, and how much of it is in our heads?

The Medicine is written by one of the most fearless and illuminating medical thinkers of our time, making it a must-read for anyone interested in modern medicine and health.
