Weltanschauung- a German word- meaning image of the universe and humanity’s relation to it. Try and you can relate this to health.

This is what it is made from , in 1868, from German Weltanschauungfrom welt “world” + anschauung “perception”. Once i googled this word and health i could see a company by the name perception health existing and helping me connect the word with health almost instantly. 

Tod Fethering who is the owner states, Perception Health seeks to connect the large amount of health data that exists in particular communities to help hospitals make decisions based on their area’s needs, boosting efficiency and profitability.

When i google the word perception the best definition i can use is from psychology.about.com , ” Perception is our sensory experience of the world around us and involves both the recognition of environmental stimuli and actions in response to these stimuli. Through the perceptual process, we gain information about properties and elements of the environment that are critical to our survival. Perception not only creates our experience of the world around us; it allows us to act within our environment.”. True in every word they talk about in there.

Now how does our environmental perception (not just plants tress or animals or nature we keen everything) change us inside the body??

Amongst several things, immediate things that get affected or are responsible for any downstream activity of this perception are stretches of our DNA, brain tissues and neuronal cells, more complex than the lab and the experiments i have ever conducted in projects for epilepsy or for even on complex disorder as schizophrenia!

I remember Dr Giovanni stating that emotions, even the most fleeting  pervade every part of our life. He continues to argue that episodes of anger, guilt, fear, sadness, joy and love can be an immense mystery leaving us with many knots to untangle.

i remember studying in medicine about a system renin-angiotensin system (RAS) or the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) is a hormone system that regulates blood pressure and water (fluid) balance.

I think most of the basis and an real interest that ignited a fire i could not extinguish in many years for in-depth exploration of our most complex and computer like bodies that made computers, came from this system , which once abnormally active, your blood pressure will be too high. There are many drugs that interrupt different steps in this system to lower blood pressure. These drugs are one of the main ways to control high blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure, kidney failure, and harmful effects of diabetes.

Our genes, perception, behaviours, foods and lifestyle and relation to the outside world affects our inside world, in simple words.
