It is estimated that the Korean nationals who are living in Mexico are approximately 9,000 whereby these people migrated to Mexico in 1900.  As the result of commercial deals which were signed by the Mexican, Korean and Taiwan governments. The companies were able to hire and bring back the people outside the Asian heritage. The racial heritage of Mexicans is mixed which has got variety of Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, and other Asians. Though the people of south and northern Korea have different names, they all have a common. The people of South Korea refer to themselves as Hanguk-in while the northern call themselves Joseon-in, all meaning people of Korea.

Koreans are considered descendants of ancient people from Manchuria, Mongolia, and south Siberia, who inhabited the northern Korean Peninsula. People of Korean heritage are those individuals who trace their lineage to the Korean state. People who trace their roots to Korea are of Korean heritage and share their characteristics with those of Korean people. People of Mexican heritage are people who trace their roots to Mexico. Mexico is a state in northern America that identifies itself as an independent state. Hispanic and Latino are commonly used by these people who have diverse sources to describe themselves. The ancestry of Mexican people includes Spanish, African, indigenous, and German. There is no close similarity between the roots of Korean and Mexican heritage. There are those Koreans who migrated into Mexico and who can trace their heritage to Mexico. Asians who live in Mexico can also trace their roots to be similar to those of Korean.

The two communities have varying healthcare beliefs. The Koreans believe in healthcare; they believe in curative rather than preventive treatment measures. Many believe in Korean culture is based on the Buddhism religion. They believe fate or karma may be the reason for ill health. Disharmony is a natural force that they believe causes certain sicknesses like depression, hypo activity, and hypothermia, among other diseases like abdominal cramps (Lee, Choi, & Marqus-Pascual, 2016). The Koreans believe the treatment of such diseases should be using the opposite force to achieve body balance.

The Korean enhance the provision of evidence-based treatment by ensuring they communicate with caregivers about them believes and pain. They also help healthcare providers in understanding whom to involve when offering treatment to patients. There are characteristics within the Hispanic Mexican that define illness and the use of healing and treatment practices. Mexican Hispanics view illness as God’s divine punishment or will of God. Despite the type of treatment, they get, Hispanic Mexicans employ faith in God as part of their healing process (Medina & AETC, 2014). They get help from their lay healers in most cases. Like Korean, they believe in curative rather than preventive measures. They are mostly emotional and thus need to be treated well when sick. Their dietary is crucial for healthcare providers as they would help in administering prescriptions.

Mexican have different practices to cure diseases like prayer, folk, and herbal medicine. Other practices are prescription from a friend or prescription from medical doctors. They also consider individual nutrition and diet to heal diseases. Traditional treatment and health practices in the Korean community are different.

In conclusion, the paper has discussed the heritage of both the Korean and Mexican heritage. Both groups have got variety of similarities which have been discussed whereby they are not limited to above.  Healthcare beliefs, values and customs have been discussed clearly portraying how the traditional medicine is used.  They both communicate well with the caregivers and traditional attendants to ensure that they express their pain and feelings in order to receive the best curative medicine instead of preventive cures.

People of Baltic and Brazilian Heritages

People are known or perceived to be belonging to different heritages. In this case, certain countries are known to be Baltic nations or people belonging to the Baltic heritage. Depending on the context that the people of Baltic heritage may stand for, the nations that might be classified as being Baltic nations include Estonia and Latvia, Finland, Lithuania, Germany, and even Poland. The other Baltic nations include Denmark, Russia as well as Sweden. However, three countries have been viewed as shorthand Baltic nations and these include Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania. Therefore, the above countries have been classified as being Baltic nations since they are seen to be lying on the side of the Baltic sea. Specifically, the nations lie on the East Shores of the Baltic sea and this led to the origin of their name. The other reason for such individuals being regarded as Baltic states is that their ancestors were Baltic individuals apart from the Estonians who have been categorized as being Baltic because of lying on the Baltic sea. Despite belonging in the same category, the countries are also different in terms of development with some of them being ahead of the others in terms of development and also with regard to considering other factors that are important for classifying individuals.

On top of being regarded as Baltic nations or states, the countries also have a certain view regarding the delivery of evidence-based healthcare. As per the prevailing information, individuals in the Baltic nations view evidence-based healthcare as the way out of surviving the various diseases that they might be prone to. In other words, it is important to argue that people in these nations highly value evidence-based healthcare and medication as they are involved in seeking medical care, and the medication they receive need to be monitored by their healthcare providers. Also, people living in these nations tend to consume various medical products and medicinal herbs to ensure recovery as far as the medication has been provided by a qualified medical practitioner, (Panov et. al., 2016). In other words, people in these nations do not allow their cultural practices to interfere with their health practices since they value evidence-based healthcare to a great extent. The other important thing to realize is that people in these nations engage in vigorous health exercises and practices to ensure that they remain healthy at all the time since engaging in exercises is an important way of ensuring that they remain healthy. As a result, they remain as healthy as it might be possible, and they are also capable of living longer.

The other important thing to examine is the beliefs embraced by people in these nations especially when it comes to health and disease. Individuals in these regions belief that health and disease are interrelated in that they all emanate or come about depending on the styles of living of the people. As an example, they feel that being healthy depends on deciding to live a healthy behavior while the disease is viewed as a result of failing to engage or practice a healthy style of living. The essential information to reinforce this argument is that the nations engage in healthy behaviors since that is an essential interpretation of health to them, (Lofqvist, 2017). The notable way they engage in healthy behavior is by practicing healthy exercises as much as it might be possible. People in these regions engage in sporting activities as they view it as an essential way of remaining healthy. The other activity they engage in entails the consumption of fruits especially fresh fruits and other fresh food substances as they are all essential ways of making sure that they remain healthy. Therefore, people view health as being determined by their mode of living and the activities they get involved in. On the other hand, the disease is viewed as embracing an unacceptable style of living.

Regarding the overview of the Brazilian heritage, it might be argued that it has been derived from the Portuguese heritage and this might be claimed to be the Brazilian heritage. It can also be claimed that it is a mixture or a blend of different heritages to come up with a single heritage. The heritage might be argued to be an ideal prove that mixing occurred during the colonial period where ethnic and also cultural mixing took place and mainly involved indigenous people that were from the coastal region as well as the highly accessible riverine regions. Essentially, the Brazilian heritage might be viewed as a mixture of the Portuguese heritage and also the African heritages as well as other minor heritages to come about with the Brazilian heritage, (Dessen, 2019). The other essential thing to look at is their view and perception concerning health and disease. Just like Baltic heritage, people feel and believe that health and disease are mainly a way of living. In case a person embraces a healthy style of living, then a person will be healthy. However, in case a person does not engage in a healthy lifestyle, then the person is likely to be affected by the disease. The view is among the reasons they mainly engage in sporting activities and healthy practices. The situation also brings the similarity in the manner of viewing health and disease between the two cultures.

Greeks, Hindu, and Cuban have different beliefs regarding cultural and health care beliefs. Comparing their cultures helps to distinguish the health care believes and cultural practices of the communities. The Greeks and the Hindu seem to have a significant influence on the Cuban people’s cultural beliefs in terms of health care. The culture of Cuban people relies on the cultural practices of Greek and Hindu when seeking health care services (Purnell, 2013). Cuban go for biomedical care to handle organic diseases, which help them to be in a better part as opposed to the Greek and Hindu who have little trust in the health care providers. The comparison of the three cultures shows that Greek and Hindu rarely trust in health care professionals from other communities while Cuban have in trust in biomedical care.

The majority of the Greeks ignore various healthcare standards, and they have their way of promoting health care practices. Greeks have numerous health care means of preventing pregnancies by use pills for controlling birth and condoms (Purnell & Fenkl, 2019). They believe that engagement in abortion affects individuals’ health status and even endangering the lives of mothers. Some communities among the Greeks have biomedical means ahs education level that prevents them from adapting to other health care practices. Hindu has different cultural beliefs when it comes to health care practices. They believe that conducting physical examination traumatizes women due to the various processes involved in providing health care services that yield expected results. The Hindu believes that different types of suffering due to illness bring hope to the community members, which are necessary for their lives (Mendoza & Lopez, 2017). Most of the three cultures’ beliefs are influenced by their different cultural practices tied to their rituals.

When comparing the level in which each community seeks help from other cultures, Greeks rarely trust healthcare professionals, and the same applies to the Hindu. Hindu relies mostly on the community and family to find solutions for health care problems. Cubans also rely on their families for advice on matters regarding their health, which helps them to be better than their counterparts (Purnell, 2013). Cubans seem to have been influenced by other cultures, which show that they can copy different beliefs in health care. Hindus believe that traditional health systems emphasize illness prevention; hence members of the society develop their unique perspective of creating awareness of their needs. Their practice makes it easier for them to meet their health demands. The Hindu practice of disease prevention has influenced the Cubans who believe profoundly in preventing diseases than treatment (Rausenberger, 2018). The Hindus also use traditional healers to enhance outcomes of their health hence making them better in society.  That practice has also influenced Cubans who seek traditional healers to improve outcomes of their health, such as applying traditional herbs in tea. Cubans have shops specifically for selling traditional herbs in which were adapted from Greeks and Hindus cultures.

Greeks have a cultural belief of accepting the donation of organs, which is also practiced by the Hindu, who is famous for organ transplantation, especially the kidney. The majority of people in Greek and Hindu communities are involved in the practices of donating organs through medical procedures (Purnell, 2013). The Cubans also accept donation and transplant of organs and blood transfusions a practice they adopted from the Hindu and Greeks. Hindus believe that treatment and rituals performance can be used to enhance health outcomes for various people in society. Cubans have copied the practice as they perform rituals to improve the health outcomes of various society members. The cultural heritage of Hindu and Greeks is the same. Different people in their cultures are involved in different cultural practices, such as engaging in folk remedies (Purnell, 2013). The ritual practices are performed by various people at home to provide prevention against different diseases. The rituals performed by Hindus and Greeks at home help to improve the health outcomes of various people. The same practice has been seen in the Cuban heritage due to the influence of Greek and Hindu. Cubans perform folk remedies where Santeria improves the health outcomes of various people in Cuban society (Rausenberger, 2018).

In conclusion, different communities and different cultural beliefs regarding health care practices in which some end up being influenced by the communities they interact with. Cubans have been greatly influenced by the health care practices by the Greeks and Hindus. Most of their practices are adapted from Greek and Hindu. The practice of blood transfusion and organ transplant by Cuban is adapted from Greek and Hindu as they highly accept the practice. Greeks and Hindu rarely trust health professionals, making them rely on their traditional practices tied to their rituals. Cubans have also adapted the use of traditional medicine through the use of herbs. Various people in Cuban society have opened shops that deal with traditional herbs, a practice copied from Greek and Hindu. The health care practices among Cubans seem to have been copied from Greek and Hindu.
