Wapointe (Healing)

Poku Afirmu (Clan Crest) The Poku Saeruo Degonjo have extensive knowledge in the healing arts. They balance their medical practices against their cultural and theological views.

They have an in-depth knowledge of biology, botany, chemistry, and genetics. Their genome was decoded long before they took to the stars. The clan are proficient in surgery techniques, organ transplants, even limb reattachment techniques.

The policy for treatment and care is governed by the Wapointe Jyaon (Healing Rules).

Radiant Medicine

The Hidden Sun Clan learned how to detect the actual dynamic energy or life force in living things. They call this energy mygouos which literally translates to energy of life. This discovery was actually not part of medical research, but rather theological. However, once the discover was made and confirmed. The medical research began and a new series of diagnostic tools was developed.

After they learned to identify the various energy emissions life forms emit, they then investigated creating energy forms that had a controllable effect on the body. These methods are typically reserved for medically trained personnel.

See more details on Wapointe Gean'te (Radiant Healing).

Transplant Medicine

The Poku Saeruo Degonjo has long practiced organ replacement and later and limb replacement medicine to restore their members to fully productive lives. Originally they used organs from compatible donors. Later they learned to grow replacement limbs and organs from the patient's own genetics negating most chances of complications. This is the only form of cloning that the Clan accepts at this time.

Transplants are produced using Vanate Gyparo (Transplant Grower).

Crisis Exception

“Some two hundred or so years ago, the Tanoi lifted the ban on cloning. This was because of the Weakening. Between death and infirmaty, we lost 20% of our people. So we created new Qaktoro, but they were not citizens. The were not property, but were what we call Râyjo Vonai or Bound People. As such they were cared for and protected. With time those that wished were permitted to undergo the Baqnor and become citizens. Others chose to remain as they were.” Tesgi

Cybernetic Medicine

Cybernetic medicine has a very limited inroad in the Poku Saeruo Degonjo culture. The only commonly acceptable implant is the Iginâ Yoqa (Neural Link). They do use small implants to treat auditory, or even visual issues. However, these are uncommon since it is possible to replace with new grown replacements.

Minor temporary implants such as stints, and cardiovascular valves are seen as temporary stop measures until a more permanent treatment can be arranged.

Major cybernetics, artificial limbs while technically feasible are generally perceived as inferior to the natural body, almost an abomination to Siamaka. While they can manufacture such items, currently there is no market as few members would ever consent to using them.
