Question 1: The Collective Gallifreyan word for Healer is “pengwi” which translates as “One Who Restores Balance.” Why can a Healer be described as someone who balances rather than heals? I think that a healer can be described as one who balances because when someone is sick their body or mind is not balanced. So, the healer uses what is best for the situation and that balances everything out.

 Question 2: Compare and contrast (with the emphasis on contrast) “Healing and Curing.”   According to an article written by Lissa Rankin M.D https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/owning-pink/201110/the-difference-between-healing-and-curing. Healing and Curing are not the same thing to heal means to make someone whole while curing this the is eliminating the disease. Some illnesses and problems can be cured such as a broken bone or an ear infection. When in comes to health conditions that are not easily cured such as Hypertension, Diabetes, or Cancer healing is needed as well. With cancer the cells can be removed but in attention to cutting away the disease their maybe emotional trauma that needs healed.

Question 3: What is the purpose and nature of healing: The purpose of healing is to restore a person to the closest to the best health level of health possible. This is done by healing both the mind and body by taking into consideration the physical and mental.

The Doctrine of non intervention: I will not meddle in the lives of others without their permission, or do harm to them unless their actions are contributing to universal imbalance,

Question 1: What is the relation between the Doctrine of non intervention and Healing? How does one decide when, how, and who to heal?

Healers intervene in the lives of others however we should still get consent of the patient. The patient  should know all of their options for treatment the pros and cons of each.  Sometimes the patient is unable to respond I feel  treatment is ok to proceed with especially if it's a matter of life and death.

Question 2: Is it ethical to refuse healing to anyone who asks? even though they maybe the wrong person. Example, a Dalek asking for healing or a known criminal.
I feel it would be ok to refuse to heal a Dalek because they could turn around and go back to destroying everything once they are healed.

Question 3: How do we prioritize who needs healing? someone who is in more need? someone who is more "valuable to society?" And how do we make those determinations.
I feel that healing should be prioritized severity of the problem the more harm a problem can cause that should be taken care of first. We would make that determination by taking a look at the symptoms of the problem.

Excellent start, Azura. I would like you to follow up on the last answer. What if the symptoms are not immediately obvious, or the patient is not being completely honest about their level of suffering? Or, alternatively, what if there are two patients, one who is in more pain, and one who is in more immediate danger?

If the symptoms are not obvious ideally if there is another healer around one person would take care of the person with the non-obvious symptoms and one would take care of the person with the more clearer problems. In the event it is just me I would get the one where symptoms are showing stable enough to where I can look further into the other person. If I have someone who is not being completely honest about their suffering it such as they are in more pain than they are letting on this could be for a number of reasons. One is they know the other person and is looking out for their well being more than their own, in this case if they are in a life threating situation and the other person they are looking out for is not I would treat the one who is in the life threating situation. If it is obvious they are lying about their pain and trying to seem like it is worse than it really is to be taken care of first  I would pick the one truly suffering more. If it is not obvious I would get them stable just to be sure. When choosing between someone in more pain vs someone in more danger I would choose the one in more danger because that person could die if I choose the one in more pain first.

Excellent answers again, Azura. I would like you to follow up a bit more on the last answer, specifically, why someone would lie about their pain/injury/illness. You mentioned that someone might lie to get Healing first. What are some other reasons someone might lie, and how are Healers to prioritize that?
Examples might me cultural reasons, not feeling like they deserve Healing, wanting a friend/family member who is less injured to be Healed first, etc...
