Although Health is something that everyone wants, few people realize where it comes from. Because most people do not understand where health truly comes from, most people have no idea what they should be doing to obtain it. Only through understanding what health is and where it comes from, can you begin to make the appropriate decisions on how to achieve it.
What is Health?
The basic, core definition of health is described as a state of “normal function.” So ultimately, if you wish to achieve health, you must understand what causes you to function normally (or optimally).
Americans today spend more money on healthcare than any other country. We spend the most on medications, vitamins, supplements, diet books, trainers, fitness centers and home gym equipment. No doubt, an interest in personal health has reached monumental high. The main reason why nutrition and fitness industries have reached their peak is because we have all realized that health can only be achieved by taking an active role. Changing your diet, exercising properly, participating in yoga, pilates and getting weekly massage can help to:
- Enhance the overall well-being of your body
- Overcome and prevent illness
- Give you energy
- Improve your appearance
- Lengthen or extend your life
But, none of these are the source and center of all human bodily function.
