Health is so much more than not being at ‘dis-ease’ or less-than-firm (infirmed). The etymology of the words health and heal are from the O. E. (Old English) hal “whole”, and O. N. (Old Norse) helge “holy, sacred”, prompting us to reestablish a whole, holy, and sacred relationship to “a dynamic state and/or process of complete physical, mental, spiritual and social wellbeing”, a definition based on the World Health Organization Resolution EB101.R2.
• “Water is fundamental for life and health. The human right to water is indispensable for leading a healthy life in human dignity. It is a pre-requisite to the realization of all other human rights.” The United Nations Committee on Economic, Cultural and Social Rights, Nov 27, 2002
• “Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have.” ~ Winston Churchill
• “A gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles.” ~ Wiliam Hazlitt
• “If all the medicine in the world were thrown into the sea, it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
• “The groundwork of all happiness is health.” ~ Leigh Hunt
• “Effective health care depends on self-care; this fact is currently heralded as if it were a discovery.” ~ Ivan Illich
• “Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn't organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.” ~ Ivan Illich
• “Healthy people are those who live in healthy homes on a healthy diet; in an environment equally fit for birth, growth, work, healing, and dying ... Healthy people need no bureaucratic interference to mate, give birth, share the human condition and die.” ~ Ivan Illich
• “The best of healers is good cheer.” ~ Pindar
• “A sad soul can kill quicker than a germ.” ~ John Steinbeck
• “The people think of wealth/ and power as the greatest fate,
But in this world a spell of health/ is the best state.
What men call sovereignty is a/ worldly strife and constant war;
Worship of God is the highest throne,/ the happiest of all estates.” ~ Suleiman the Magnificent
• “We should resolve now that the health of this nation is a national concern; that financial barriers in the way of attaining health shall be removed; that the health of all it's citizens deserves the help of all the nation.” ~ Harry S Truman

Chakra & Mudras

Poster text:
Sanskrit for Wheel, the word Chakra represents the 7 energy centers of the body.

Chakras are believed to contain energies called Prana, corresponding to higher cerebral functions. Practitioners of various Yoga styles nurture what is considered to be the spiritual energy known as Prana-Kundalini, which resides coiled in the base Chakra or Muladhara. The location of each Chakra over specified points on the cerebrospinal axis, referred to as Merudanda corresponds to the nerver groupings emanating from the spine.

Mudras - Intended to guide the flow of energy to the brain during meditation, hand positions ccalled Mudras assist the practitioner in estabishing strong mind and body communication.
Each finger represents one of the fie basic elements of which our bodies are made. Mudras are used to coordinate these elements and restore properties.

We're interested in helping people stay healthy. Learning how the human body works is amazing, but learning what to do when it isn't working properly is the key. If we work hard and pursue our dreams, someday we'll be taking care of patients. We may even help find a cure for cancer. We have the power to be somebody!

The Microscope, Inventions that Changed the World, Poster

The Microscope -

Just as the telescope opened up the world of outer space, so the microscope lead to the discovery of the world of “inner space.” And with this discovery came a new and better understanding of how the human body works. Without the microscope, modern medicine would not be possible.

Very simply, a microscope is any instrument that magnifies extremely small objects so they can be seen easily. The earliest microscopes were nothing more than glass globes filled with water and used by engravers about 3,000 years ago. But the modern microscope can be traced back to the development of the so-called "compound" or “multiple lens” system of the late 1500s. Two Dutch lensmakers named Hans and Zacharias Jannsen made a compound microscope by placing a magnifying lens at each end of a sliding tube. But the real credit for using the microscope as an instrument of science goes to Dutch amateur biologist Anton van Leeuwenhoek, shown here. Leeuwenhoek spent countless hours making lenses and assembling microscopes by hand. His microscopes used only one lens, but they still produced a better image than the compound microscopes of the time. With his devices, Leeuwenhoek examined pond water, blood cells, and muscle fibers. He called the tiny creatures he observed “animalcules,” noting that they were “1,000 times smaller than the eye of a louse.” Because Leeuwenhoek was the first person to record what he saw through the microscope, he is often called the “father of microbiology.”

Thanks to the microscope and the work of pioneers like Leeuwenhoek, scientist were able to discover the true causes of many diseases. This led to countless medical breakthroughs – such as vaccines, which have virtually wiped out once-dreaded diseases like smallpox and polio.
