    take up the art of healing / You've had it, that's that!

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to share with me your authoritative opinion concerning my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following two sentences?

    1.He wondered what devil had inspired him to take up the art of healing.

    to take up the art of healing = to become a doctor
    art = craft

    2. “I mean it.” the doctor said. “You’ve had it, that’s that.”

    you have had it, that’s that = it can't be helped = nothing can be done about it = there's no more to be said or done; the matter is finished,

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Yes, in a sense he becomes a doctor of naturopathy who can cure diseases like Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Trauma & Addiction. These are not curable by normal medicine therapy(allopathic treatment) but mostly by Yoga Therapy (naturopathy)which includes some amazing exercises on breathing techniques that help regulate mood and energy level followed by intense sessions consisting of posture holding and meditations that break deep into held trauma and emotion (the cause of depression)
    There are other kinds of treatments such as chiropractic care, acupuncture, and Thai massage.

    2. “I mean it.” the doctor said. “You’ve had it, that’s that.”


    you have had it, that’s that = it can't be helped = nothing can be done about it = there's no more to be said or done; the matter is finished,
    Yes, it means so. what would you do if you are a patient suffering?

    Go to the doctor treating naturopathy.



    Thank you for your efforts.
