DevNotes: The Bodyguard / Combat Medic was overperforming in HPS output, so it needed some changes to various abilities.

First, we reduced the effects of Proactive Medicine / Preventative Medicine, in addition to reducing the overall healing done by Healing Scan / Advanced Medical Probe and Progressive Scan / Successive Treatment. Finally, we reduced the healing and critical healing bonuses given to the discipline through passives, which brought the Bodyguard / Combat Medic to its target HPS.
