Medicines are synonymous with health and medicines are synonymous with cure. When medicines cure, one will get health. Health is synonymous with wellbeing or wellness.Everyone wants wellness or wellbeing but not many are willing to spend money or to do something to achieve wellness. Men are known to be more insensitive to their health than women are. Men are more willing to spend their money on their cars rather than on their health. Men are only willing to spend on their health when they really get sick and bed ridden. When sickness has made him unable to work and earn a living then only men are willing to seek medical advice. As long as the sickness does not stop him from earning his living, he thinks he is still healthy and to seek medical advice to him is still not necessary. Most of us will only seek medical advice when we really become very sick. Otherwise we think to go to the doctor is a mere waste of times and money.
When a person is sick, he or she will have symptoms of the diseases. The symptoms could be pain, fever, headaches, dizziness, discomfort or any other symptoms. We think when the symptoms disappear we are healthy and to remove the symptoms we go to see the doctors. The doctors prescribe us with some medications that remove the symptoms and when the symptoms disappear, we think we are again healthy. The current understanding that I should only see the doctors when I am sick is incorrect. We should see the doctors even when we are not sick because the prime reasons we should see a doctor are not only for removing the symptoms of the diseases but to cure the diseases and to achieved total wellness. We think it is costly to see a doctor when we are not sick but we should remember that it is much costlier to see a doctor when we really get sick. It is a much difficult task to cure diseases than the task of preventing ourselves from getting diseases. In order to achieve total wellness we have to prevent and to protect ourselves from sickness and this can be achieved when we know what is wellness and the reasons why we becomes si
Wellness is a complete wellbeing of the body, mind and soul. We are well when our body, mind and soul are well. Allah makes us in the womb of our mother. Initially Allah creates our body and the creation of our body is influenced by the genetics of our parents. After we are conceived for about four months in the womb of our mother, Allah installed into our body, our mind and soul. When we are born the body, mind and soul continue to develop and reach its maturity when we are about six years old. The soul and the minds influence the body. When the soul and the minds are well then the body will also becomes well. When the mind and soul are not well then the body will also becomes not well. Many patients reports to the doctors that they are sick but after complete medical investigations are done on the patients the doctors founds no signs of any diseases. The doctors have to discharge the patients as well and healthy. The doctors are only able to investigate the health of the body but not the mind and the soul. When the soul and mind is not well, the body also becomes not well.
Current medical treatments cannot treat the diseases of the mind and soul and most current medical treatments only eliminate the symptoms of the diseases and not curing the diseases. Current medical treatments cannot cure many disease and patients of those diseases have to take medications until they die. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w said in the meaning all diseases can be cured except death. Our observations and experiences maybe wrong but the words of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w cannot be wrong. The current medical treatments cannot cure many diseases because the treatments only involve with the treatments of the body. The treatments of the soul and mind are not included in the total treatments of the body. When the diseases of the soul and mind are not treated then the diseases of the body cannot be cured. We have to treat the body holistically means we should also treat the mind and the soul when we treat the body. When the soul departs the body, the body is dead. Therefore, we cannot treat the diseases of the body without treating the soul and mind. When diseases of the body are treated holistically then all diseases can be cured except death. Medical treatments that treat mind, body and soul are known as the Great Medicines. The soul and the mind influence the body but the body cannot influence the soul and the mind. We have to develop the science of treating the body, mind and soul. Until we can treat the body, mind and soul holistically we cannot cured all diseases.
