CADUCEUS (Kuh-doo-see-us)

        Recognized internationally as the symbol of Medicine, the"Caduceus" reached symbolism of healing the body, mind and soul.Historically carried by Mercury, wing-footed messenger of the gods (also Roman soldiers during flag of truce). The staff of peace was once borne by Roman military emissaries to signify a cessation of hostilities. Snakes from tradition that Sesculapius, the Roman God of Medicine appeared during a plague in Rome in the form of a snake. Ancients believed snakes discovered the secret of eternal life, interpreting shedding of skin as a return to youth. They also credited snakes with being able to search out health-giving medicinal herbs. Thus, the combination of snakes as symbols of health and the staff representing both speed and peace.
