It’s Not Just About The Doctor

What does health really mean?

The Croation Medical Journal (Aug 2006) explains three definitions of health that are used today:

The first is that health is the absence of any disease or impairment. The second is that health is a state that allows the individual to adequately cope with all demands of daily life (implying also the absence of disease and impairment). The third definition states that health is a state of balance, an equilibrium that an individual has established within himself and between himself and his social and physical environment (pp. 662-664).

  My life’s mission is helping others understand the value of having good health and to coach them in making positive changes.
