Condition Report

A classic work on prognosis. "De praesagienda vita" is a detailed study of prognostics in which attention is focused on the mental state of the patient and his behavior on health, both physical and diagnostic. Alpine has been sufficiently impressed by new therapeutic practices to introduce the "moxa" technique in European medicine.
