The vertical axis
The horizontal Axis
The positive and negative
Factors “determinants”
These interact in every axis. From here we would have
The two lines braid and re-braid and re-braid.
Health in balance: Analyze forces and weight
Pathology & stressed
Resilience & well-being
--Non-random distribution of many forces interacting at
multiple levels -- between individuals and populations
--Forces may be positive or negative but, the issue is how
they balance in total
--The effects are not just emotional or temporary. Instead,
reflect patterns of advantage or loss in society that
accumulate over a lifetime = “pile up” of risk or advantage

Cultural model and forces on health
The mind-body connection --over time and across cultures
the interaction and effects have been explain or dismissed,
obvious or invisible
In our culture of medical science the question of how and
perhaps, whether our thoughts and emotions are important
to our health and physical well-being is controversial
How are the most important elements in our lives embodied?
Explanatory models existed but were disconnected from
medical science and public health
