Hygeia was the Greek goddess of health and she was worshiped in connection with Aesculapius, her father, the god of medicine and health. She is said to be again, the grand daughter of the God, Apollo. She is also the sister of Panakeia or Panacea (means all-cures) Akeso (Goddess of Healing), and Iaso (which means Remedies). Hygeia is usually depicted as a young woman, who holds a sacred snake (symbolizes resurrection), which is often combined with the rod of Asclepius to form the cadacus, or symbol of medicine.Often this snake is portrayed as drinking from a cup (symbolizing medicine), which has become known as the Pharmacist's bowl. Originally, she was the guardian of physical health and later became the goddess of mental health, as well. Eventually, she became a protectress against various kinds of danger, an attribute which she shared with Aesculapius. It is from Hygeia, the word hygiene originates. Hygiene is the science of preserving health. The subject of hygiene includes all of the agencies affecting the physical and mental well being of people. In its public aspects, it is concerned with soil; climate; character; materials and arrangement of dwellings; heating and ventilation; removal of wastes; medical knowledge on the incidence and prevention of disease; and the disposal of the dead.
