Nacirema Body Ritual The Nacirema culture was a nation that originated by the culture hero, Notgnihsaw. Their culture was characterized by a rich natural habitat. Now while they spent some time working on economic pursuits, majority of their day is spent in ritual activity. They believe that the human body is ugly and that it has a tendency to debility and disease and that the only way to protect themselves is through ritual and ceremony. In every household there is at least one shrine or more shrines depending on how powerful they are in the society that are used for this purpose.
A little bit of perspective on the society and culture of the Nacirema people involve body rituals and how they go through great lengths to ensure physical wellness. It is difficult as a reader to make sense of the rituals the Nacirema performed and why they did. The Nacirema people believe that the human body is ugly and that it is susceptible to disease. They live a very bizarre lifestyle, not the stressing on the physical well-being part but the spiritual sense they put into their beliefs. In their house, they have a private shrine where they pray daily.

“The focus of this activity is the human body, the appearance and health of which loom as a dominant concern in the ethos of the people.” (Henslin, Chapter 8, P. 88) This quote stood out to me because of how outlandish it first seemed. As I continued reading and Henslin went more in depth about the Nacirema rituals, I was thinking to myself how strange it all seemed. Then it dawned on me that my perception of it was biased because of how I have lived my whole life. The idea of strange is more of an individual belief and relative to the society one comes from. I began to think about the countless hours our society spends in the gym, tanning, shopping, and fussing over our appearance.

Stethoscope allows the physician to hear the distinction by giving an apparent sound (Laennec 23). Hence, even Laennec recognized that at the moment of his discovery, he knew that this invention would be the key to study any body movements in the thoracic activity (Porter ). In his text of On Mediate Auscultation, he acknowledged that the invention of the stethoscope can assist the careful examination of either a human living or dead bodies (Laennec 8). This allows the physicians to be dominant in the physician and patient relationship since the diagnosis would no longer be centralized around the patient’s narrations.

I have worked in nursing homes as a certified nursing assistant, although this is not the most pleasant or fun job, it gave me an idea of what people go through on a daily basis and how they could use my help with their everyday tasks. I am currently working with my fellow students of the CAPS program to collect money for the Kansas City Medicine Cabinet. We have been working on a drive to collect coins that we can donate to the Medicine Cabinet. The money that we collect will help people who cannot receive medical treatment because of their financial situation. This experience challenges me to look at healthcare from a different perspective and realize that our healthcare system has many flaws that need to be
