GENERAL HEALTH
Health is freedom from disease.  It springs from a natural and healthy action of all the bodily and mental organs.  Life is sweet, but only with health.

BODILY STRENGTH
Bodily strength comes from, and is proportioned to the development of bones and muscles.  This life requires force and motion; and having bodily strength, we are equipped for action.

HEALTH OF DIGESTION
Good digestion is the result of a healthy stomach, proper food, proper drink, and right living.  We must eat to live; but if we live to eat, we shall die.

HEALTH OF BLOOD
Healthy blood circulates delightfully through the system, carrying warmth and life to all its parts.  It removes the useless, and deposits the useful, and thus helps to build up the living being.

HEALTH OF LUNGS
Healthy lungs make breathing a pleasure.  Breathing is necessary to existence.  Therefore we have good lungs with which to inhale the free are of heaven,, and the breath of life.

HEALTH OF LIVER
The liver secretes and supplies a yellow fluid, called bile, which assists in the digestion of good.  Healthy liver is essential to complete health, and to bodily stamina.
