The context is CrossFit, Inc.’s 2015 resistance to fitness licensure in Washington, D.C.

The Caduceus Versus the Rod of Asclepius as a Symbol of Medicine

3

In contemporary U.S. culture, the caduceus, which depicts two snakes winding around a staff, is widely used as a symbol of medicine. However, prior to the 19th century, there is limited use of the caduceus in a medical context. In ancient Greece and Rome, for example, the caduceus represented Hermes and Mercury, respectively, and the Rod of Asclepius was widely associated with medicine. More recently, health-care organizations frequently use either symbol, with professional associations more likely to display the Rod of Asclepius and commercial organizations and hospitals more likely to use the caduceus.

Hello, My name is Faith am from USA ..... and I am very happy for posting on this blog on how a great spell caster helped me bring back the love of my life. I know there are lots of women like me out there who have done so much just to have back their Husband, I am here to tell you all to search no further because the answer is right here. I sincerely believe if there are up to five spell casters like DOCTOR WTAHA this world would be a better place, I contacted him and shared my problems to him and he gave me the terms and conditions, which I obeyed, it only took 3 days for my husband to come back home begging for my forgiveness. To cut the long story short. I am now living happily with my husband. Thanks to Dr TWAHA . Contact him now on email: drlregbeyen10000@gmail.com . Or reach him on whats app +2349038518881 or call him . He can save your marriage or relationships too.

The rod originates from the God of Asclepius, representing healing and medicine. The caduceus originates from the God of Hermes, representing commerce and trade as well as thieves and liars. There has been confusion as to the use of the caduceus instead of the rod. While questioning the inappropriateness of the caduceus to represent the field of medicine, one has to wonder which better represents the current stare of the health care system. The use of both in healthcare is symbolic....somewhere along the way, the business of medicine hijacked the field of healing.

If you take a Rest Day and no one is around to prove it, did it really happen?

I was able to visit the Sanctuary at Epidauros where Asclepius tried to help people. The inscription under his statue showed the mainstay of his treatment consisted of diet and exercise. Let’s get back to basics.
