"A wise man ought to realize that health is his most valuable possession." - Hippocrates
It is a sad statement of modern society when many of man's "most valuable" possessions are his house or car, which can be taken away in an instant!
If a man has his health he can rebuild his house or buy a new car. It's also sad that we usually provide the normal regular maintenance to our cars, (that we will usually sell or junk within 5 years), but we fail to maintain the bodies we will keep for 70, 80 or even 100 years!
Hippocrates was a Greek physician and philosopher and has the honor of being called the Father of Medicine. Honestly, it is with good reason that the medical profession must take a Hippocratic oath, I just wish they read it once in a while!
Hippocrates was an amazing man, surviving 20 years of being jailed! He was the first person to say that diseases were of environmental factors such as diet and how the person lived, not curses from the gods.
Hippocrates has truly shaped much of my philosophy in practice. His quote, "Look to the spine first in health and disease", has been my guiding light for chiropractic and my treatments. I try and remind all my patients the value of their health, there really is not a greater possession.
