01A - WHAT IS HEALTH?
Recently a large group of people were asked what they wanted most out of life. What topped the list of their desires? Not money or world peace, but good health. What was their greatest fear? Sickness. The purpose of these blogs is to help you avoid that which you most fear and attain that which you most desire--good health.
The World Health Organization defines health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." In recent years medical scientists and leaders of many countries also recognize that the fourth dimension to good health is the spiritual aspect.
Are you living life to the fullest? Maybe you don't even know what you are missing. Most of us feel that if we don't need to see the doctor, then we must be in good health. But, health is not only the absence of disease. Good health enables you to do what is necessary efficiently and quickly, with enough reserve and energy left to do many of the extra, enjoyable activities of life, such as a soccer game, table tennis, or a brisk walk with a friend.
But you ask, Why do I feel so dragged out, only half alive? Is my body so poorly designed that it can't cope with the rigors of life?
No, your body is designed to function smoothly, to keep you feeling comfortable, if you will cooperate with it. Health does not happen by chance. It is not a gift, but a reward for good health habits. A long and happy life results from planned living, designed in harmony with principles which not only prevent illness, but also provide the right conditions for recovery from disease. These blogs will guide you toward this higher level of happier living.
