How Would You Define Good Health?
There is a greater dimension to health than just feeling good.
Many people answer this question, “good health is feeling good.” This is nice but it has little do with having good health.
What is health? There is so much more to being healthy than how you feel! The Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) defines health in this way: “Health is a state characterized by anatomical and psychological integrity. It includes the ability to perform personally valued family, work and community roles and the ability to deal with physical, biological, psychological and social stresses. It includes a feeling of well-being and freedom from fear of disease and untimely death.”
Health is not just how you feel, it’s how you are functioning; on every level — physical, mental, emotional and social. Thousands of Americans die of heart attacks each every year and the heart attack is the first time that they are aware that they are sick. You can’t wait until symptoms show up before you decide to act. Symptoms always mean only one thing: behavior needs to be modified in some way.
By becoming more aware of your body in Network Care, you are learning to interpret the sometimes subtle signals that your body gives you to change your behavior. The more you can pay attention to the subtle cues, the less you will need symptoms or illness to get you to change. Life becomes much easier when you follow the “leads” your body is giving you! Would you rather choose a lifestyle of wellness so your body functions at an optimal level or live the typical American lifestyle and unknowingly allow various diseases to progress to a crisis level before you seek action?
Where does health come from? Health comes from within. Your body has the inborn ability to heal itself naturally. You were born to be healthy. The catch is, in order for your body to be able to heal itself it must be free from Nerve Stress and Defense. The nerve system coordinates the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. The number one interference to the nerve system known to science today is Defense.
