What is Health?

Posted by Henry Barbey

Ask 10 people this question and you could get 10 different answers. Health has different interpretations to different people. Actually, most people likely do not think of the meaning of health until they no longer have it. Then, the importance suddenly takes on new meaning.

The conventional medical view of health is lack of symptoms. Since the conventional medical model deals primarily with the physical body, lack of physical symptoms or problems would indicate good health. Yet, we know this is not complete. There is a mental and emotional component that is equally important.

In holistic (“whole person”) medicine, we view the non-physical as important as the physical. We are looking at the total person; the mental, emotional and physical states as an undivided whole. In order to achieve sustainable good health, the whole person needs to be addressed.

I would say that good health is about freedom: the freedom to live one’s life fully. The freedom to move comfortably without restriction on physical activity. The emotional freedom of happiness and balance. The freedom of clear thinking and unclouded awareness.

Homeopathy offers a holistic approach to enhancing health and well-being. Under good homeopathic care, a person’s well-being will be enhanced on all levels, resulting in a greater sense of ease. Homeopathy is a treasure for improving a person’s health.
