I Touched a Dead Body Today
I will be dissecting a human cadaver in anatomy and physiology class and was given the opportunity in lab today to meet the cadaver we will be working with. A&P lecture/lab will allow me to further understand the human body, how it works, and how its built up. This is especially important for a naturopathic doctor, which I intend to achieve, as a keystone to healing is using the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Oregon Health & Science University has set up a body donor program which has partnered with my university (National University of Natural Medicine [NUNM]). The body we will be working with is an 80+ year old male who died of lung cancer a year ago.
Meeting this individual's body was an extremely surreal experience and rather humbling. I went through a whole new series of feelings that I'd never experienced before, all of which were for the better. Join me in today's episode as I go into full detail of my experience meeting this cadaver I hope to learn great things from.
