    Biomedical in health care is medical care and disease is seen as to conquer and cure disease it is to focus on disease not person. And concerned with what is normal and maked judgements about teh boundary between them. It is secured through a lengthy formal training. And the use of the biomedical model can be successful.

    When you be sick go visit the doctors or hospital you expect to be examine and the doctor to tell you what is wrong with you what kind of disease do you have?

    Why don't you try copying and pasting it into a Word document. I believe many places will be indicated as needing correction. On my computer they would be underlined in green.

    You should start by rewriting the passage, correcting the errors in your best English. That will make you more aware of what linguistic features you need to explain.
