The HEALTH Issue

HEALTH is from חלוץ  [K]HeeLOOTS, which, like   חיל  [K]HaYiL, means strength and vigor.
weakness is  חלש  [K]HaLaSH.  ILL health is  חלה  [K]HoLeH 
HELLO means "be HALE."  Being HEALthy or AILing  comes from the same place, the same Het-Lamed root is this case. 

These built-in opposites offer a glimse into the Mind of  an apparent Creator of Speech.
Let's investigate sickness:

SICK          TSOAQ           Tsadi-Vav-Koof

(T)SOAK________צוק______   _[(T)S-I-K]


ROOTS: SICK means to be troubled or grieved; the American usage stresses ill health. Anglo-Saxon seoc is traced to the Indo-European base seug (distressed);  no Indo-European “root” is offered .


צוק   TSOAQ and  צוקה  TSOOKaH mean distress and affliction (Isaiah 30:6; Proverbs 1:27).  The verb  הציק HayTseeYQ  is "to torment" (Deuteronomy 25:55).


BRANCHES:   צעק TSah[A]hQ (cry) is an audible companion of SICKNESS, while       שקם  SHeeQaiM (to rehabilitate) is a fricative-guttural pain reliever. 


 A CRANKY infant (irritable, considered slang or from British dialect) could be sick -- as suggested by German and Yiddish krank (sick).  KR could be from   a) the Het-Lamed   ח-ל / K[H]-L root of sickness seen at “HEALTH” or b) a nasalized רך  RaKH (weak) – see “WEAK.”


Tsuku is anguish or pain in Japanese; sakit means both sick or pain in Indonesian.  Dutch (ziek), Swedish (sjuk) and Norwegian (syk) "sick" terms support an SK or ZK etymon.  In Danish syg, the guttural has shifted to G.


 Related ‘sorrow” words inclue Swahili sikitiko, Indonesian dukatjita and tuga in Serbo-Croation.

Be well!
