What Is Health?
The word healty is often used in the context of food. Healty is defined as “a market in which goods are sold by means of a contract.” Usually in the United States we refer to it as the open market, but in other countries the term healty is used when talking about how goods are bought and sold, or how money is made. So, what is healty and where does it come from? Let’s explore these questions.
Henry VIII of England in the 14th century was known to be fond of saying, “There is nothing certain in this life but death and taxes.” Though it’s hard to say whether he was right, his position on the value of eating healthy food was firmly rooted in healty theory. The idea that eating well is a duty or a privilege is not new. The idea that eating healthy food is a right is fairly new.
In fact, the idea that food is something that is right and others are wrong (and therefore must pay for it) has been around for a long time. A great number of people throughout history have taken this view. Ancient Greece had a philosophy of healty that stressed that those who ate right were closer to the gods and thus closer to happiness. The ancients believed that eating right was vital to attaining happiness and true wisdom. Socrates, the famous Plato of Athens, believed that good manners resulted in true wisdom and goodness. Aristotle argued that a good character was the foundation of societal prosperity.
The idea that healty is related to money is not new. In fact, the Ancient Egyptians had a concept of healty that ranked wealth next to virtue. In ancient China, wealth and virtue were often associated with one another. Alexander the Great was said to have respected the Egyptian Pharaoh because the Egyptian people were wealthy. Even Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, believed that people who were wealthy enjoyed happiness and prosperity.
The word healty itself does not reflect any relation to money per se, but it is derived from the word hecaty, which means money or gain. Thus, it can be seen as both a means of obtaining money and a means of being wealthy. The term was used in English throughout the Middle Ages, although it was corrupted to simply “hewer.” It is doubtful that the word healty will make a return, but it has always been used as a synonym for wealth or prosperity.
One of the biggest problems with the healty concept is that it romanticizes wealth. By making people believe that money is the key to happiness, the healty concept perpetuates the myth that money is the root of all evil. However, the myth that money is evil is only partially true. While it is true that poor people have poor healty, it is also true that wealthy people are more likely to have good healty. Poor people can also be helped by others.
