Headword: Ὑγεία
Adler number: upsilon,23
Translated headword: health
Vetting Status: high
It is two-fold, the one in the doctor, the other in the body which is being healed. And the one in the doctor creates the one in the body; exactly as the order in the universe came out of the order in the creator.[1] What is 'healthy' is one of the things expressed in many ways; for 'healthy' [can be] what creates health, like the medicine; or something preservative [of health], like the way of life; or something that indicates [health], like colour, pulse, ease of breathing, urine.[2]
Greek Original:
Ὑγεία: διττή ἐστιν, ἡ μὲν ἐν τῷ ἰατρῷ, ἡ δὲ ἐν τῷ ὑγιαζομένῳ σώματι. καὶ ἡ ἐν τῷ ἰατρῷ ποιητική ἐστι τῆς ἐν τῷ σώματι: οὕτω καὶ ἡ ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ τάξις ἐκ τῆς ἐν τῷ δημιουργῷ τάξεως γέγονε. τὸ δὲ ὑγιεινὸν τῶν πολλαχῶς λεγομένων ἐστίν: ὑγιεινὸν γὰρ τὸ ποιητικὸν ὑγείας, ὡς τὸ φάρμακον: τὸ δὲ φυλακτικόν, ὡς ἡ δίαιτα: τὸ δὲ σημαντικόν, ὡς χρῶμα, σφυγμός, εὔπνοια, οὖρα.
