Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
Hippocrates

There are no drugs more powerful than those you already have in your head! More than
100,000 chemical reactions go on in your brain every second. Your brain contains a veritable
pharmacopoeia of natural happiness-enhancing drugs: endorphins (the brain's painkiller, three
times stronger than morphine), serotonin (which naturally calms anxiety and relieves
depression), oxytocin (the bonding hormone), and dopamine (which promotes alertness and a
feeling of enjoyment), among others. They're just waiting to be released to every organ and
cell in your body. Because your brain's pharmacy is open 24 hours a day, you can create your
own supply of these happiness chemicals any time you want. And when your cells are happy,
you are happy.
Marci Shimoff

The trouble with being a hypochondriac these days is that antibiotics have cured all the good

There is no such thing as tasty medicine.
Jewish proverb

the fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
- Brought peace?
- Oh, peace. Shut up!
Life of Brian, 1979
