HEALTH: physical and psychical statement of organism, when we feel healthy and well. To be healthy is the most important thing and has great value. But people suffer on many kinds of diseases, illnesses and sicknesses.

PROCESS OF ILLNESS: when we fell sick we take vitamins, drink tea, stay in bed, are keeping in warm, eat a lot of fruit or some medicine. If it doesn’t help we go do the doctor, its better to have appointment to overcome waiting in overcrowded waiting rooms. Then the nurse says „Next please“ and invites us into the consulting room. The nurse takes our insurance card and looks for our case-history, the doctor asks us some questions, examines us (takes temperature, checks blood pressure…), says the diagnosis and therapy and after that we receive prescription. We go to chemists and then we go home to heal. We have to inform our classroom teacher or employee about our statement that we are not able to come to school/work.  Most often we suffer from a common infection such as flu, tonsillitis, bronchitis or pneumonia. At the chemist’s we get antibiotics, vitamins, pain relievers and gargle. In more serious cases or if we get injured we can call the doctor to our home. Sometimes we may be taken to hospital by an ambulance. For special accidents a helicopter may be called up. Sometimes it is necessary to give first aid such as mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, to stop bleeding or fix fractures. In the hospital the injured people are examined and X-rayed at a casualty ward (emergency room). Serious cases are immediately operated on in the operating room. Before the operation the patient must pass several tests and then just before the operation he is anaesthetised by means of an injection or inhalation of narcotic. After the operation a scar often remains. The patient is sometimes sent to a health resort or a spa for rehabilitation. There he undergoes water treatment, takes, baths, massages, remedial exercises and drinks the waters.

It looks at the whole person, not just the illness)
