Hippocrates on health

Living in Greece is quite the experience. Not only do most all medical words come from Greece, but the basis FOR medicine began here.

Just as we believe with the natural self healing system of BodyTalk, Hippocrates said:

Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.


A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses.


It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.


Everything in excess is opposed to nature.


When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.”

― Herophilus
