Hippocrates, famously known as the “Father of Medicine” is one of, if not the most famous philosopher & physician in history and dates back to 460 BC. Hippocrates is widely recognised worldwide for changing the world of medicine by observing each individual patient by case and taking a rational approach to curing health conditions, rather than believing that illness was caused by superstitions, spirits or gods. (A big belief in BC times!)
The Father of Medicine believed that when assessing a patient, all factors of their environment must be noted in order to successfully treat & cure their condition. These factors included work, sleep, diet and exercise. When treating a condition, he always sought to use herbal and natural remedies only if necessary.
Hippocrates is a very important part of the Dokimon brand as it is from his ancient recipes and remedies found within his preserved manuscripts that the essence of Dokimon was born. Many of Hippocrates’ manuscripts have remained within the Vatopaidi Monastery’s libraries for thousands of years, allowing his work to continuously be analysed and put into practice.
Dokimon’s natural skincare range is very much based upon Hippocrates’ methods of natural medicines and plant properties. The formulation of each product brings together potent organic healing herbs such as calendula, chamomile, geranium, lavender & St Johns wort as well as elements of raw honey, beeswax and olive oil that when combined are able to successfully maintain skin health as well as treat and heal various skin conditions.
