What is health?
What is health? How do we define it? Could it be the absence of disease? Under this definition then, if we can not find anything wrong then you are considered "healthy." The drawback to this approach is that it's limited to our search criteria and understanding of the mechanism and progression of each disease.
Or is health like other aspects of the human condition; reading and studying increases I.Q./knowledge, exercise increases muscle mass, definition, and endurance; "healthy eating" increases vital body functions - decreases B.M.I. and cholesterol levels, immunity....etc.
If health is not the absence of disease then how do we measure it? What signs do we look for? What do the patterns of symptoms warn us about? It is these questions that the Eastern and Ancient traditions' perspective of health is adept at measuring and answering.
For millennia the Ancients maintained their health by watching the human body respond to stimuli. They documented those observations and passed it down to the next generation for confirmation and refinement. In China for example, the origins of their health care system are 5,000 years old. Today we still benefit from this knowledge by identifying a pattern of disharmony. Because we can spot these patterns early on, we can gently steer them and correct them before illness, disease, and organ failure occurs. Proper identification then leads us to the best tools for the job - herbs, foods, and exercises.
After you have identified the pattern of the concern, then you need the to tools to fix it. Again, this is where an Eastern and Ancient approach has much to offer. Millennia of observations provides insight into what to use for the good, better, and best solutions. Nutritional guidance and herbal formulas are two of the most powerful. There is much to sort through and to consider when choosing your future path to health.
