Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The response was a law which authorized spending 20, pounds annually for five years to support schools; the state aid was augmented by a local tax. We wanted to bring to bear these new technologies into an all-new and completely revamped formula for die-hard lifters. During the s and '40s two major management studies of the Department pointed out systemic problems in its organization and operations. I am really on a tight budget, and I always have to think really hard before spending money on supplements, especially on non-necessary stuff like pre-workouts. Because over time, these deficiencies continue to grow. The later s and '50s were an era of slow but steady growth in most areas of the Department.

Health financing

What is health financing for universal coverage?

Just used shock therapy for the first time. Big fan of animal and universal supplements. I'm not a usual fan of grape flavor drinks but this one was beyond tolerable.

I'm so I needed more then one scoop. After drinking it is didn't get any jitters, and no headache. Helped me get into the void and really concentrate on stretching and contracting. It doesn't work on me. I used 1 scoop and there was no energy boosting or anything. I tried 2 different brands and best one is Be sports alfa one pre workout i feel boosting energy but do not take it 5 or 6 hour before sleep.

R vortex pre workout is same it doesn't workIt just something not bad taste. Tomorrow i will try GRIT new pre workout. I 'll write my comments.

Peach ice tea is amazing flavor so light and easy to digest when i compare it to mpact that was like a poison. It doesnt give you jitters and doesnt make you nervous like mpact. As for the pump,nothing crazy but i can lift same weight like when i used mpact. Definitely my new favorite flavour-Jersey peach tea. I take a serving when I get to the gym and it keeps me going for a 2 hour workout. I'm not a fan of proprietary blends but this is a decent pre-workout supplement.

The grape flavor is good. I'm a huge fan of animal products but this one did not hit the mark in my opinion. It mixed fairly well but the taste was pretty bad and I didn't feel any noticeable different during my lift sessions after 2 scoops. Again a great company but I'm a bit disappointed in this product. One of the chosen reviews for the product says that the guy passed out from it. And the owner won't comment on the total quantity of caffeine product in the mix?

This supplement doesn't give a hard kick in the beginning no itchy or tingling skin , but you won't fatigue out or start feeling sluggish before you finish your workout. Gives a good vascular pump as well. This is my first, and probably the last review on BB. I am really on a tight budget, and I always have to think really hard before spending money on supplements, especially on non-necessary stuff like pre-workouts.

This is why i always rely on online comments and reviews to help me choose the right thing, as there is no room for mistake! I have read some really bad reviews of Shock Therapy, and I must say that I was worried, but people I personally know, and who compete, only had the best words for Shock Therapy.

I took a leap of faith, and got my tub, and after trying it for 2 weeks, I must say the following - Who ever thinks Shock Therapy is anything but awesome, has no clue about what a pre-workout should do or how it should taste!!!

Directions For Shock Therapy: For performance enhancement use 30 minutes preworkout. Depending on factors such as bodyweight, experience and stimulant tolerance, use scoops per training session. Athletes weighing more than lbs may require 1. Always start with a single scoop or less serving in order to assess individual tolerance. Do not exceed 2 scoops in a single 24—hour period.

Your Overall Product Rating. Flavor Ratings Optional Choose a Flavor. I certify that I have used this product. Unless the spirit be healed, the cure of the body is worth nothing. All is in the hands of God, and without Him there can be no health in us! There have been many men who have died at last of the very disease of which they have made a special study. Aristotle, for instance, who made a special study of the digestion, died of a gastronomic malady. Aviseu was a specialist of the heart, but he died of heart disease.

God is the great compassionate Physician who alone has the power to give true healing. A physician ministering to the sick, gently, tenderly, free from prejudice and believing in the solidarity of the human race, he is giving praise. It is through the wish or desire and the prayer of the holy person. The one who is sick may be in the East and the healer in the West, and they may not have been acquainted with each other, but as soon as that holy person turns his heart to God and begins to pray, the sick one is healed.

This is a gift belonging to the Holy Manifestations and those who are in the highest station. The time will come when meat will no longer be eaten.

Medical science is only in its infancy, yet it has shown that our natural diet is that which grows out of the ground. The people will gradually develop up to the condition of this natural food.

It is certain, however, that if man can live on a purely vegetarian diet and thus avoid killing animals, it would be much preferable.

With the appearance of every Revelation a new insight is created in man and this in turn expresses itself in the growth of science. This has happened in past dispensations and we find its earliest fruits in our present day. What we see however is only the beginning. With the spiritual awakening of man this force will develop and marvelous results will become manifest. Shoghi Effendi wishes you therefore to find whether your son has really become ill, and if he is, then follow the directions of the doctor.

Being versed in the medical sciences they can treat better than even a loving mother can. You can render your assistance by praying for him and at the same time helping the physicians to treat him.

Physical and spiritual forces have both to be used to secure the speedy recovery of the patients; no partial treatment is sufficient In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 1 June to an individual believer Healing through purely spiritual forces is undoubtedly as inadequate as that which materialist physicians and thinkers vainly seek to obtain by resorting entirely to mechanical devices and methods.

The best result can be obtained by combining the two processes: In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 12 March to an individual believer With regard to your question concerning spiritual healing: Such a healing constitutes, indeed, one of the most effective methods of relieving a person from either his mental or physical pains and sufferings. Spiritual healing, however, is not and cannot be a substitute for material healing, but it is a most valuable adjunct to it.

Both are, indeed, essential and complementary. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 16 February to an individual believer With reference to your question concerning spiritual healing: Physical healing cannot be complete and lasting unless it is reinforced by spiritual healing. And this last one can be best obtained through obedience to the laws and commandments of God as revealed to us through His Manifestations.

Individual believers, however, can also help by imparting healing to others. But the success of their efforts depends entirely on their strict adherence to the Teachings, and also on the manner in which they impart them to others. He must rather seek it through His Prophets.

Provided this principle is clearly understood and explained, the Guardian sees no harm that the friends should try to effect spiritual healing in others. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 23 May to an individual believer As to your question concerning the meaning of physical suffering and its relation to mental and spiritual healing: Physical pain is a necessary accompaniment of all human existence, and as such is unavoidable.

As long as there will be life on earth, there will be also suffering, in various forms and degrees. But suffering, although an inescapable reality, can nevertheless be utilized as a means for the attainment of happiness. This is the interpretation given to it by all the Prophets and saints, who, in the midst of severe tests and trials, felt happy and joyous and experienced what is best and holiest in life.

Suffering is both a reminder and a guide. It stimulates us to better adapt ourselves to our environmental conditions, and thus leads the way to self-improvement. In every suffering one can find a meaning and a wisdom. But it is not always easy to find the secret of that wisdom.

It is sometimes only when all our suffering has passed that we become aware of its usefulness. What man considers to be evil turns often to be a cause of infinite blessings. And this is due to his desire to know more than he can. God's wisdom is, indeed, inscrutable to us all, and it is no use pushing too far trying to discover that which shall always remain a mystery to our mind.

In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 29 May to an individual believer Regarding your questions concerning the condition of the soul during illness: The passages in the "Gleanings" make it quite clear that physical ailments, no matter how severe, cannot bring any change in the inherent condition of the soul.

Sickness reveals a lack of balance in the human organism, an absence of equilibrium in the forces essential for the normal functioning of the human body. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 31 December to an individual believer As to the possibility of conception without the presence of a male sperm in the future: In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 27 February to an individual believer The Teachings bear no reference to the question of telepathy.

It is a matter that concerns psychology. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 27 March to an individual believer These investigations you have so painstakingly pursued in the field of medical science, and on a subject which is still puzzling the minds of all the leading scientists in the world, cannot but be of a captivating interest and of a great value to all medical research workers.

That you should increasingly prove, through your continued researches in the domain of medicine, to be one of those instruments is the fervent hope of our beloved Guardian In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 29 November to an individual believer Such hindrances, no matter how severe and insuperable they may at first seem, can and should be effectively overcome through the combined and sustained power of prayer and of determined and continued effort That there should be, however, certain individuals who by reason of some serious deficiency, physical or mental, would be incapacitated to contract marriage and enjoy the blessings of an enduring and successful marital life is only too evident, but these constitute only a very small section of humanity, and are therefore merely an exception, and their condition cannot possibly invalidate what an all-wise and loving Providence has decreed to be the normal way to a fruitful and constructive social existence.

In the mean time, those believers who consider themselves as falling into the above category would do well, before taking any final decision themselves, to consult medical experts, who are both conscientious and competent, and to abide by their recommendation. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 15 April to an individual believer Also with regard to the practice of circumcision; the Teachings bear no reference to this matter, and it is therefore not enjoined upon the believers.

No doubt medical science will progress tremendously as time goes by, and the treatment of disease become more perfect. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 22 January to an individual believer As to your question about healing: In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 13 December to an individual believer The Tablet to a Physician was addressed to a man who was a student of the old type of healing prevalent in the East and familiar with the terminology used in those days, and He addresses him in terms used by the medical men of those days.

The Guardian never goes into technical matters, as this is not his work. Likewise there is nothing in the teachings about whether people should eat their food cooked or raw; exercise or not exercise; resort to specific therapies or not; nor is it forbidden to eat meat. We can also try to help them, both physically and spiritually, through prayer. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 31 March to an individual believer It — the body — is like a horse which carries the personality and spirit, and as such should be well cared for so it can do its work!

You should certainly safeguard your nerves, and force yourself to take time, and not only for prayer and meditation, but for real rest and relaxation In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 23 November to an individual believer Very little is as yet known about the mind and its workings. But one thing is certain: In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 9 April to an individual believer The Guardian knows nothing about your kind of healing, nor would he care to go into the question in detail, as he has no time for such matters.

But he can lay down for your guidance certain broad principles: But you must conscientiously decide whether in view of the above you are really justified in continuing. He will pray for your guidance and happiness. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 8 June to an individual believer He does not feel that you should try to do anything special about the capacity you feel to help people when they are ill. This does not mean you should not use it, when the occasion arises, such as it did recently.

In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 25 December to an individual believer We have no reason to believe that the healing of the Holy Spirit cannot be attracted by ordinary human beings.

But this is rare, a mystery, and a gift of God. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 26 March to an individual believer There is nothing in our teachings about Freud and his method. Psychiatric treatment in general is no doubt an important contribution to medicine, but we must believe it is still a growing rather than a perfected science.

This does not mean psychiatrists are always wise or always right, it means we are free to avail ourselves of the best medicine has to offer us. We are certainly free to pass on what we have found beneficial to others.

In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 30 September to an individual believer The Guardian sees no reason why you should not continue to help sick people. On the contrary, to be able to help another soul who is in suffering is a great bounty from God. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 5 October to an individual believer There is nothing in the Teachings about chiropractic as a method of healing. People are free to turn to it if they please and find help through it.

In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 10 February to an individual believer Regarding your question: If you are not one of those, you should protect your health by sleeping enough. The Guardian himself finds that it impairs his working capacity if he does not try and get a minimum of seven or eight hours. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 15 September to two believers There is nothing in the teachings about Socialized Medicine.

All these details are for the House of Justice to decide. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 18 February to an individual believer Every day medical science is progressing, and it is quite possible that some new form of treatment or some new doctor may be able to get you on your feet.

He will certainly pray that this may be so. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 24 February to an individual believer So you see he cannot possibly pronounce on the merits of Dianetics.

The believers are free to investigate new things, and use them if they prove of real value and no harm. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 30 August to an individual believer He was sorry to hear you have been ill, and urges you to cooperate fully with your doctors in order to regain your health as soon as possible and be free to serve the Cause.

In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 27 March to an individual believer He is pleased to see that you are feeling better, and will certainly pray for your full recovery. Before having any serious operation, you should consult more than one qualified physician. In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 8 April to an individual believer Regarding various matters raised in your letters: In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 26 June to the National Spiritual Assembly of Canada There is nothing in the Teachings against leaving our bodies to medical science.

The Universal House of Justice has also asked us to inform you that it does not wish the above statement to be circulated in isolation from the many and varied other texts in the Writings on medicine. However, you may share it with any of your friends who are interested. What we have are certain guidelines, indications and principles which will be carefully studied by experts and will, in the years ahead, undoubtedly prove to be invaluable sources of guidance and inspiration in the development of these medical sciences.

They involve educating caregivers on appropriate infant and young child feeding practices and improving the use of locally available foods. Supplementation programmes provide specific micronutrients that are not available as part of the regular diet. Supplementation is especially important at times when the body has particularly high micronutrient needs — for example during pregnancy — that are difficult to meet with diet alone.

One example is iron and folic acid supplements for pregnant women, which can reduce the risk of low birth weight, maternal anaemia and iron deficiency. Mass fortification is the process of adding micronutrients to foods or condiments that are consumed regularly by the population, such as flour, sugar, salt and cooking oils. Fortification programmes are extremely effective in preventing micronutrient deficiencies at minimal cost — often only a few cents per person per year.

Universal salt iodization and flour fortification programmes to add iron have provided successful mass fortification in many countries. Home fortification programmes provide caregivers with micronutrient powders to sprinkle on the foods they prepare for children at home. This can significantly improve the dietary quality of complementary food for children from 6 months to the age of 2 or older. Home fortification empowers caregivers and provides them with the tools to improve the family diet without requiring a major change to their dietary practices.

These strategies, together with the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases and deworming, can minimize micronutrient depletion and reduce micronutrient deficiencies among vulnerable groups.

Micronutrient deficiencies are caused by immediate factors — such as inadequate intake of nutritious foods and infectious disease — and underlying factors — like poverty and unhealthy environments. Addressing these factors can be a challenging process. Increasing dietary intake of nutritious foods can be challenging because micronutrient-dense foods are often expensive and not readily accessible.

To illustrate, iron deficiency is the most pervasive nutritional problem in the world but progress to eliminate it has been limited, in part, because iron-rich foods — like liver, red meats, eggs, fish, whole-grain bread, and legumes — are not widely available or affordable to many families. Infectious disease and micronutrient deficiencies exacerbate one another in a vicious cycle.

Infections deplete micronutrients at a time when the body needs them the most. With limited stores to draw upon, the immune system weakens further and becomes less capable of fighting the infection.

Underlying factors, such as inadequate care practices and an unhealthy household environment, including unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation, also threaten food intake and increase infections.
