Title in English: The Healing Process: Organ of Repair
Abstract / summary in English:
After finalizing the series BOLK’S Companions for the Study of Medicine for the moment, this module on The Healing Process introduces a new series of BOLK’S Companions that studies the Practice of Medicine. In it, we research the healingprocess itself. There proved to be an enormous volume of scientific literature on the subject. It is easy to loose oneself in the countless details included in the descriptions of this process.
The phenomenological method of systems biology makes it possible to examine physiological and pathological processes in terms of the processes themselves. We collected the data and, with the aid of phenomenological method, classified and interpreted them. This results in a characterization of the various phases of the wound healing process. Out of this, new insights into the origin of health and disease emerged that also offer possible leads for medical practice.
