Health


World Health Organization:

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. It is not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

A healthy individual is a man who is well balanced bodily and mentally, and well adjusted to his physical and social environment.
He is in full control of his physical and mental faculties, can adapt to environmental changes, as long as they do not exceed natural limits; and contributes to the welfare of society to his ability.

Health is, therefore, not simply the absence of disease; it is something positive, a joyful attitude towards life, and cheerful acceptance of the responsibilities that life puts upon the individual.


Sri Sri Ravisankar:

Health is:
a disease free body
a quiver-free breath
a stress-free mind
an inhibition-free intellect
an obsession-free memory
an ego that includes all
a soul that is free from sorrow.


 
To be a doctor, means much more than to dispense pills or to patch up or repair torn flesh and shattered minds. To be a doctor is to be an intermediary between man and God. - Felix Marti-ibanez.


On Yoga: Body is the bow, asana is the arrow, and the soul is the target. Yoga is bending the body to control the mind! - B.K.S Iyengar

A person asked God, "What surprises you most about mankind?"
God answered:  "They lose their health to make money and then lose their money to restore their health. By thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live neither for the present nor the future and they live as if they will never die, and they die as if they had never lived..."



A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctors book. ~Irish Proverb


Ode to Facioesthetic Surgeon


Nature the Master Sculptor
Occassionally takes time off her duty
To create human faces of exquisite beauty.
And thus from the time of antiquity
We have heard of the beauty of Nefertiti
Also the handsome face of Adonis
And the youthful transformed Narcissus.
Their striking beauty shone forth bliss.
Such were the showpieces of nature’s aesthetic skills
But a capricious remorseless nature
In pursuit of cruel jest,
Mischievously brings forth a misshapen face
And for the victim, a big disgrace.
The hapless victim is forced to ask,
“Why have I been given this simian mask?”
And from Nature’s mangled mess
He seeks retribution and redress.
Like a night in shining armour appears
The Orthognathic Surgeon…
To try to relieve his desperate burden.
Armed with his scalpel and his chisel
He hammers away the unesthetic protuberances
To smoothen and to restore a face so gory
To its original pristine glory.
That even the angels and cherubs from the seraphim above
Applaud and cheer the Orthognath’s love.


 
It is difficult to know what counts in the world. Most of us count credits, honor, dollars. But at the bulging center of mid-life, I am beginning to see that the things that really matter take place not in the boardrooms, but in the kitchens of the world. - Gary Allen Sledge



The patient should be made to understand that he or she must take charge of his own life. Dont take your body to the doctor as if he were a repair shop. - Quentin Regestein
