WELLNESS QUOTES FROM HIPPOCRATES TO POLLAN THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR HEALTH!
Wellness Quotes DO make a difference!
I have found that having some Words of Wisdom, in this case Words of Wellness, to fall back on in life helps while struggling to stay on track, in any endeavor. Here is a short list of my favorite wellness "words of wisdom" that I have accumulated to help get you on the right track and keep you there.
WELLNESS QUOTES BY TOPIC
(IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER)
The Father of Medicine (460-357BC)
This is my favorite wellness quote of all-time!
"If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health."
"As I mentioned previously, the tools that allow for optimum health are diet and exercise."
This is my second favorite wellness quote of all-time!
"What is food to one man is bitter poison to others."
"It's far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has."
"The garden suggests there might be a place where we can meet nature halfway."
"The correlation between poverty and obesity can be traced to agricultural policies and subsidies."
And, this is my third favorite wellness quote of all time.
"Let food be your medicine and medicine your food."
"At home I serve the kind of food I know the story behind."
"High-quality food is better for your health."
"Corn is an efficient way to get energy calories off the land and soybeans are an efficient way of getting protein off the land, so we've designed a food system that produces a lot of cheap corn and soybeans resulting in a lot of cheap fast food."
"Now that I know how supermarket meat is made, I regard eating it as a somewhat risky proposition. I know how those animals live and what's on their hides when they go to slaughter, so I don't buy industrial meat."
"Let's face it, in America today we don't have a health care system, we have a sick care system."
"Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease."
DIANA SCHWARZBEIN, M.D.
"Degenerative diseases of aging are not genetic but acquired. Because the systems of the human body are interconnected, and because one imbalance creates another imbalance, poor eating and lifestyle habits, not genetics, are the major cause."
MENTAL LEADS PHYSICAL
"Mental is to physical, as 4 is to 1"
"Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."
"How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?"
"Walking is man's best medicine."
"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
"America's health care system is in crisis precisely because we systematically neglect wellness and prevention."
"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."
"Whenever a doctor cannot do good, he must be kept from doing harm."
RALPH WALDO EMERSON
"The first wealth is health."
"My work has also motivated me to put a lot of time into seeking out good food and to spend more money on it."
"When you go to the grocery store, you find that the cheapest calories are the ones that are going to make you the fattest - the added sugars and fats in processed foods."
TREATMENT OF ANIMALS
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
"I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being."
ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI
"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."
"He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals."
Gandhi's, Lincoln's, Assisi's and Kant's words didn't fall deaf on this woman's ears:
Natalie at the Heart And Soul Sanctuary
"For at the same time many people seem eager to extend the circle of our moral consideration to animals, in our factory farms and laboratories we are inflicting more suffering on more animals than at any time in history."
WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
