Health Inspiration

I found some health quotes by Hippocrates and wanted to share them with you.

Hippocrates was a Greek physician born in 460 B.C. and died in 377 B.C.  He became the founder of medicine and was regarded as the greatest physician of his time.  He believed in treating the body as a whole and not in parts.

Here are a few of Hippocrates's quotes.
Nature itself is the best physician.

If you are not your own doctor, you are a fool.

Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.

To do nothing is sometimes a good remedy.
Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work.
The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.  Our food should be our medicine.  Our medicine should be our food.  But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness.
Enjoy your day!
