Thoughts on Health 2

“The first wealth is health.”
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Make a habit of two things: to help; or at least do no harm.”
--Hippocrates

“The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.”
--Hippocrates

“The cure of many diseases is unknown to the physicians… because they are ignorant of the whole.  For the part can never be well unless the whole is well.  This is the greatest error of our day in the treatment of the human body.”
--Plato

"Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
--Constitution of the World Health Organization, July 22, 1946

“The aim of medicine is to prevent disease and prolong life, the ideal of medicine is to eliminate the need of a physician.”
--William James Mayo, MD
