People with diseases like AIDS and cancer feel an urgency in straightening out their lives, examining their purpose, and confronting the reality of death.

For many, it makes them truly cherish life and the ability to give and receive love. ~Jeff Seibert

Everyone should be his own physician. We ought to assist and not force nature. Eat with moderation what agrees with your constitution. Nothing is good for the body but what we can digest.

Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease. ~Hippocrates

I am convinced that unconditional love is the most powerful known stimulant of the immune system.

Most of the time we think we're sick, it's all in the mind. ~Thomas Wolfe
