About the Book

The sweetness of wellness is better realized through the bitterness of illness. The book, Health and Medical Care, dispenses first-aid care and preventive measure in many of our common illness. This book along with its four companion books—Nature Is My Teacher; Of Human Nature and Good Habits; Life, Living and Lifestyle and How to Win Nature and Enjoy Good Life—constitutes a series that tells the nature-human connection and its implication in our daily life, in the related set of separate episodes.

Health and Medical Care deals with health and medical care services, and primarily, aids to prevent diseases and stay healthy and thrive. The book contains chapters: Men’s Health (Recent findings suggest that men’s shorter life span is not due to genetic reasons only; it has partly to do with their behavior, lifestyle, and living conditions.); Women’s Health (Although in medical terms, it does not deem that the developing embryo or fetus is as a child, an expecting mother is so attached to the pregnancy so early on that when the miscarriage happens, the woman loses not just a pregnancy but a child of her own—the very dream of her motherhood. Someone she loved, was never born!); Children’s Health (Research indicates that 22% of babies who were exposed to antibiotics before 6 months of age have an increased likelihood of being overweight by age 3, compared with unexposed infants.); Medical Care (The health care will represent 20% of the total economy in 2025.); Human Organs (The eye is the extension of the brain. It is the most sensitive part of our central nervous system (that connect to the brain). Over 80% of our learning (and perception) is mediated through our eyes.); Blood Pressure (Most physicians consider a blood pressure of 120/80 as ideal.); Heart Attack and Stroke (To protect from cardiovascular illness, please do: (1) exercise, (2) eat healthy, (3) Lower your B.P., (4) lower your cholesterol, (5) control your blood sugar, (6) maintain a healthy weight, and (7) don't smoke.); Diabetics (Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong chronic condition where the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Type 2 diabetes is also a lifelong chronic condition where the pancreas produces the insulin, but the body is partially or completely incapable of using that insulin, or the cells ignore the insulin altogether.); The Cancer (Cancer is not just one disease but a set of allied diseases in which a group of cells (a) demonstrate uncontrolled growth and divide beyond the normal limits; (b) invade adjacent tissues; and sometimes (c) metastasize, which is very dangerous because it involves an interaction between rogue cells and healthy cells.) Old Age and Death (The inevitability of death infuses us with a meaning and an urgency. Let Mother Nature give you the last kiss of life. You leave the earth dramatically alone and absolutely by yourself.)
