To me health and wellness means finding your own balance between all the dimensions of health. What works for some may not work for others and there is no set guideline for every type of person and situation. Achieving overall health may not be as rigid as being at a target weight, but getting out of an unhealthy living condition that makes other areas of your life suffer. I look at the chart illustrating the dimensions of health, and I see the importance of balance. I can look at most people close to me
In Martha Nussbaum’s Compassion and Terror, Nussbaum claims that human dignity is untouched by misfortune, pain, or malice in Stoic tradition: “All humans have it, no matter where they are born or how they are treated. It exerts its claim everywhere, and it can never be lost.”(18). This demonstrates that dignity and virtue are completely invincible, free from external factors, external factors ranging from the obvious (material objects) to the not so obvious (one’s children). At first glance, the Stoic principle does not coincide with Nussbaum’s support of global justice and ethical compassion. Stoic philosopher Seneca makes it a point to instruct slave masters not to physically or sexually abuse their slaves.
If you chose a profession in social care you owe the people you support that right. You also owe them the right to feel respected and treated with dignity. Organisations and individuals should think about the duty of care when planning their work, this could be events, services or individual care plans. This will help you consider whether what you are doing is in the best interests of the service user and completing risk assessments will also be part of your plan. All four regulators in the UK set out the requirements for the Code of Practice, they have agreed a joint code of practice which sets out clearly the expectations of the individual working with health and social care.
‘Natural Law has no serious weaknesses.’ Discuss. The natural law theory is approach from an absolutist point of view which expresses that morality is set from birth. What is right and wrong, good or evil can be perceived almost instantly by everyone because morality is universal it is not a relativist thing that can change with situation. Also, natural law does not adjust to public opinion; it is an invisible measure which never changes. It can be seen as a good approach to morality as it does not allow people from different denominations such as cultures or where you are born or in different situation they may find themselves to build their own moral rules and framework to life, it is personal but is guided by these innate rules.
With this in mind it can be said that any physical activity or exercise can contribute to health, but it does not reassure that they will become healthy. What it means to be healthy is different for different people, such as an elderly
Safe tanning should be no tanning at all due to the fact that there is no such thing as safe tanning. There are alternatives that can be looked at that are safer with less effects. Tanning beds, a source of vitamin D or a deadly habit? The use of tanning beds is a very common ritual of average North American women between the ages of 18-25.

1.2 describe the effects of poor personal hygiene on health and well-being. Poor hygiene can cause skin complaints, unpleasant smells and bacterial or parasitic infections.

Sociological perspective of health posits that society depends on healthy people to function properly and also help to control illness (Parsons, 1975). Parsons identified the sick role of a person which demonstrates a condition of an ill person and its impact on society. He used four components to identify the state of an ill person role. Parson suggests that, for a person to assume a sick role the individual should not be held responsible for being sick, be exempted from normal duties, the person should be seeking help to get out of the role because the individual should not like being in the position of a sick role. However the theory of social stratification does not favour the sick role theory because it is not realistic for some class of people who may need a

Lady’s are not to cross their legs or point at anything with the foot in fear or showing signs of contempt or disrespect towards the person. When it comes to healthcare providers explaining illness or health status, Asians have a cultural respect for harmony. This can really hamper the patients well being and future plan of care by not asking for more explications when they may not complete understand what is going on in fear of disrupting harmony.

It should also include the needs, opinions, preferences, and expectations of the targeted consumer group (Fottler, M.D., Ford, R.C., and Heaton, C.P., 2012). There are four key factors that need to be used for an organization to have an excellent service strategy; they are quality, value, service and achievement. For quality and value a healthcare organization invests the necessary resources like money, time, and labor to identify and measure patient’s perception of quality and value, meaning that their total healthcare experience was worth the price. For service and achievement a healthcare organizations commitment requires the following: * Recruitment and retention of doctors and staff who believe in the merits and efficacy of customer service * Allocation
