I have delved deep into the probable mechanism of emotions so that it becomes easy to understand how our emotional health can fail just as our physical health does. As the physiological reactions taking place in our liver or lungs can go awry, so can they go wrong at the emotional level. Our brain can produce too strong an emotional response for a small stimulus or it may produce a very weak response against a strong stimulus. The response may persist for too little a duration or too long a duration.
Consistent with the statute, benefits will include at least the ten essential health benefits specified in the Affordable Care Act. The monthly premium and cost sharing charged to eligible individuals will not exceed what an eligible individual would have paid if he or she were to receive coverage from a qualified health plan (QHP) through the Marketplace. A state that operates a Basic Health Program will receive federal funding equal to 95 percent of the amount of the premium tax credits and the cost sharing reductions that would have otherwise been provided to (or on behalf of) eligible individuals if these individuals enrolled in QHPs through the Marketplace.
Les chaînes de transmission. Au mois de mai 2020, une épidémie d'encéphalite a éclaté dans l'Ain, à cause de… fromage de chèvre. En réalité, c'est toute une chaîne de transmission entre espèces animales qui s'est établie, jusqu'aux humains. En effet, comme le montre une enquête de Santé Publique France, l'encéphalite a été causée par des tiques, qui l'ont transmis à des troupeaux de chèvres du bassin d'Oyonnax. Le virus s'est ensuite propagé chez l'Homme par la production de fromage. Ces chaînes de transmission sont fréquentes chez les maladies qui touchent les humains (certaines grippes, potentiellement le nouveau coronavirus, etc.) et la compréhension des mécanismes de transmission inter-espèces est primordiale pour aider à développer de meilleurs traitements.
Cette initiative promeut donc une vision holistique et intégrée de « La santé » (c'est-à-dire sans isoler la santé humaine, de la santé animale et de celle de l'environnement, et en cherchant à mieux comprendre et utiliser les interactions complexes qui existent entre ces trois domaines). Elle encourage une collaboration transdisciplinaire ou multidisciplinaire (à co-égalité) et une communication interdisciplinaire entre les domaines vétérinaires et médicaux (en incluant les médecins ostéopathes, dentistes, la santé mentale, etc.) ainsi qu'avec d'autres scientifiques concernés par la santé, les soins et l’environnement (santé environnementale) et avec des éthologues, anthropologues, économistes, sociologues, etc.
L'objectif du concept One Health, illustré par ces différents travaux en cours au sein de l'Inrae, est simple : “produire des connaissances et éclairer dans leur prise de décisions l'ensemble des acteurs concernés par ces enjeux de santé publique”.  A l'automne prochain, l'Institut fera un nouveau point, cette fois-ci concentré sur les substances toxiques se retrouvant dans notre chaîne alimentaire.

This may seem a bit idealistic to some, but here we are talking about the ideals. But even this definition does not cover it all. Let me give an example. There are lots of people around us who catch a cold with every change of season or with every sudden change of temperature. Now in common parlance, we say that these people have low immunity. But the fact is that most of these people have normal blood counts and normal immunological tests. So when these people are not down with cold they are in perfect health as per the above definition. And yet they are not perfectly healthy. Their system breaks down with every stressful condition. So we can add another aspect to the above definition of physical health:
The first definition of health has a basic fault in it – it tries to define a primary state through a secondary state. Health is a primary state. It cannot be fully defined through a secondary phenomenon, disease. And then there is a larger question. Does being free from any disease which can be given a name, makes one healthy? I think, no. I know so many people who have no known disease and yet they are not healthy. I know a woman who likes to show off her tons of jewelry to those who can’t have it; a woman who snobs at everyone. She has no known disease. But would you call her healthy? I know a man, who is a couch potato. He goes to his job and does nothing else. He does not help his wife with family responsibilities. He behaves with her as if she is his servant. He has no known disease. But would you call him healthy? I know a man who brags about his achievements till everybody around drops dead. He has no known disease. But would you call him healthy?
L’Inrae (Institut national de recherche pour l'agriculture, l'alimentation et l'environnement) a récemment fait le point sur les recherches en cours issues du mouvement One Health - une seule santé. Dans un contexte délicat, l’approche One Health vise à impliquer l’ensemble des acteurs de la santé humaine, animale et environnementale dans une réflexion commune.
2. Life-style and Social factors – Our contemporary life style is the second biggest factor for failing health of people. Increasing sedentary habits, long working hours, reduced rest hours; diet containing highly processed food, poor in fiber content and with loads of artificial colors and flavors; increased anxiety and tensions related to education, career, job, performance, etc are some of the factors that are responsible for decreasing the health status of our society at large. Coupled with environmental factors and allopathic drugs, these factors are playing havoc with our health.
3. Allopathic Drugs – Even allopaths say that allopathic drugs are one of the biggest cause of health problems today. Allopathic drugs not only have their side-effects, but their excessive use is decreasing the immunity level of our society at large. The pill-popping culture is an open invitation to chronic ailments. People keep suppressing their ailments and keep working until their body finally gives up.
Various modalities of body cleansing are currently employed, ranging from physical treatments (e.g. colon cleansing), to dietary restrictions (i.e. avoiding foods) or dietary supplements. Some variants involve the use of herbs and supplements that purportedly speed or increase the effectiveness of the process of cleansing. Several naturopathic and homeopathic preparations are also promoted for cleansing; such products are often marketed as targeting specific organs, such as fiber for the colon or juices for the kidneys.
