‘Health’ is an elusive word. Most people who consider themselves healthy are not. And many people who are suffering from some known disease, may be relatively healthy. Health is a concept which does not merely relate to the absence of disease, of healthy working of organs, or having good thoughts. Health is a holistic concept. It relates to a person as a whole. Not just the person you see, but also the person you ‘feel’. Health is a tri-une of three parts:


Samuel Soubeyrand, lui, est directeur de recherche de l'unité Biostatistique et Processus Spatiaux. Il pratique l'épidémiosurveillance, une méthode d'analyse mise en avant pendant la crise du SARS-CoV-2. “L'alerte sanitaire que la Chine aurait pu émettre à l'époque aurait certainement permis de déceler cette maladie émergente, désormais connue sous l'appellation de Covid-19. La bataille de la détection a été perdue”, déclare-t-il. “La gagner nous aurait permis d'anticiper l'épidémie, d'adapter les plans d'actions et de lutte sanitaire, ou encore d'initier des recherches de laboratoire spécifiques au SARS-CoV-2.” Pour détecter de manière précoce les potentielles épidémies futures, l'épidémiosurveillance repose sur deux leviers, d'après M. Soubeyrand : l'analyse des données métagénomiques des populations, et l'analyse des “autres” données, celles des réseaux sociaux, des recherches internet de symptômes, de la fréquentation des parkings hospitaliers, etc.
While discussing physical, mental, and emotional health, I did not discuss the causes for the derangement of health. I left that part because there is hardly any cause which affects one plane without affecting the others. Our mind and body are so closely integrated that when one is affected there are bound to be repercussions on the other. Let me give some examples to elaborate this. Even a small cut in your hand (physical plane) can make you worry (mental plane) about the bleeding or injury in general and can make you angry (emotional plane) with yourself that you were not careful enough. Again, mental anxiety (which often results from emotional problems) is a well known cause for peptic ulcers and hypertension. These are not isolated examples. Nearly every known disease, be it physical or psychological, can be associated with signs and symptoms on the other planes.
The Programme is implemented by means of annual work programmes agreed with countries on a number of annually defined priority actions and the criteria for funding actions under the programme. On this basis, the Consumers Health Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (Chafea) organises calls for proposals for projects and operating grants, as well as calls for joint action and tenders. Direct grants are signed with international organisations active in the area of health.
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.

Le mouvement One Health souhaite développer des synergies qui feront – selon lui – mieux progresser les soins de santé au 21e siècle ainsi que la recherche biomédicale, tout en améliorant l'efficacité des dispositifs de santé publique, grâce notamment un à élargissement et meilleur partage des connaissances scientifiques, l'amélioration de la formation médicale et de l’efficacité des soins cliniques.

L'agence française Anses a annoncé le 24 octobre 2017 qu'elle allait à partir de janvier 2018 coordonner l’EJP One Health. Ce projet conjoint européen de recherche portera sur les zoonoses alimentaires20. Il est centré sur les risques d'intoxication microbienne zoonotique d'origine alimentaire, y compris par des toxines naturelles et/ou via les réservoirs animaux domestiques ou encore via d'éventuelles importations illégales de produits animaux21. Les agents biologiques étudiés seront les virus, les bactéries, les parasites, les champignons, les prions et les séquences de nucléotides / matériel génétique conférant la résistance aux antimicrobiens21. Ce consortium issu d'un réseau européen préétabli (NoE, FP6) qui a été élargi à plus de 40 partenaires venant de 19 États-membres sera soutenu par la Commission européenne et travaillera autour du concept One Health. Ces partenaires doivent améliorer la connaissance des zoonoses alimentaires, de l'antibiorésistance et de divers risques émergents21. De 2004 à 2009, l'Anses avait déjà coordonné un réseau d’excellence dans le cadre du 6e programme cadre de recherche et de développement (PCRD) de la Commission européenne. Elle a aussi aidé à créer l'association Med-Vet-Net qui en regroupant des instituts de recherche en santé publique et vétérinaire a préfiguré l'EJP One Health20. Les partenaires font déjà partie d'une réseau organisé de communautés de chercheurs et de laboratoires de référence travaillant sur les zoonoses alimentaires, l'antibiorésistance et des risques émergents. Ce programme One Health doit produire des données destinées à mieux caractériser, évaluer et hiérarchiser les risques sanitaires par les agences nationales et européennes21. Il doit aussi faciliter et accélérer la validation et diffusion des données au sein de la communauté scientifique, faciliter l'éducation et la formation, la gestion des connaissances, l'accès aux bases de données, mais aussi aux souches vivantes, aux biobanques, à certaines installations encore expérimentales21. Le projet pourra aussi contribuer à harmoniser et standardiser certains protocoles et tests21, en lien avec deux institutions européennes pertinentes pour des domaines : l'EFSA et l'ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control)21.
Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country is CDC’s largest single investment to ease health disparities that affect American Indians and Alaska Natives. Tribes and tribal organizations work on effective community-chosen and culturally adapted strategies to reduce commercial tobacco use and exposure, improve nutrition and physical activity, increase support for health literacy, and strengthen community-clinical links.
To begin with, yes! I do believe in human spirit and God too. Wait! Don’t jump to any conclusions. Not yet. There is a big question that follows this one. What do you understand by God and human spirit? Well! I don’t know if there is something ethereal like God and spirits. For me God means ‘Good Deeds’. I don’t believe there is any God in idols and churches or heaven. I believe if there is any God, he is within us. The ‘Goodness’ in you is the God you think about.  I do not know and can not know if there is a dynamic human spirit that animates us. What I know is that life itself is dynamic. And the spirit I believe in is the summary of our physical, mental, and emotional health. For me ‘human spirit’ is what a person really is, apart from what he appears to be. I believe what goes around, comes around. What you sow, is what you reap. So if there is a hell, it’s right here and if there is a heaven, it’s right here. I am not aware of my past-life or after-lives, if I had any. But I have this life to live – the life that I am aware of – and I want to live it healthily. That’s my spirit!
A leader in the eradication and elimination of diseases, the Center fights six preventable diseases — Guinea worm, river blindness, trachoma, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, and malaria in Hispaniola — by using health education and simple, low-cost methods. The Center also strives to improve maternal and child health in Sudan and Nigeria and improve access to mental health care globally.

This understanding of the human being is why I like Homeopathy so much. And this is the reason why Homeopathy is so different from every other system of medicine. The dominant medical school still has to realize that just as the parts of a human body can not work in isolation, they also can not fall ill in isolation. There can not be a disturbed liver or a damaged lung unless and until there is a primary disturbance which affects the person as a whole. We can not forget that every part in our body and every cell in those parts has come from a single cell. A cell which had a life force of its own. How can any one dissociate the body parts which have all come from one single cell?
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 premise of body cleansing is based on the Ancient Egyptian and Greek idea of autointoxication, in which foods consumed or in the humoral theory of health that the four humours themselves can putrefy and produce toxins that harm the body. Biochemistry and microbiology appeared to support the theory in the 19th century, but by the early twentieth century, detoxification based approaches quickly fell out of favour.[6][7] Despite abandonment by mainstream medicine, the idea has persisted in the popular imagination and amongst alternative medicine practitioners.[8][9][10] In recent years, notions of body cleansing have undergone something of a resurgence, along with many other alternative medical approaches. Nonetheless, mainstream medicine continues to view the field as unscientific and anachronistic.[9]
