The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.

 

Nowadays, this statement has been modified to include the ability to lead a "socially and economically productive life." Achieving health and remaining healthy is an active process.

 

Health care is the prevention, treatment, and management of illness and the preservation of mental and physical well-being.

 

Public health is "the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals." 

 

The focus of a public health intervention is to prevent rather than treat a disease through surveillance of cases and the promotion of healthy behaviours.  

 

You cannot be healthy on any level until you are healthy on every level. The key to it all is a positive self-image. Until you have adequate self-esteem, all of the information you amass about getting healthy will do you no good, for you will not think highly enough of yourself to use it. Along with self-esteem, we need to cultivate personal responsibility. No one keeps you healthy. Nutritionists, nutritionally oriented physicians, naturopaths, osteopaths, chiropractors’ coach. It is up to you to keep yourself healthy. 

 

THE PRINCIPLES OF OPTIMAL HEALTH

1.    A Positive Self-Image.

2.    A Diet Free of Toxic Foods That Supplies Optimal Levels of All Beneficial Nutrients

3.    Clean Air and Living Environment, Pure Water, and Adequate Sunshine.

4.    Adequate Exercise and Rest

 

Optimal health is not the result of deprivation. It celebrates the benefits of many foods and nutrients, allowing us more of life and health. It is the marriage of science and pleasure. Balance the information to your own best advantage. Discard that which is too difficult and use that which suits you. Don't try to be perfect or avoid all of your favourite foods, even if some of them are "bad." Improve your diet and lifestyle at whatever pace is best for you. Improving your health this way will only add to your enjoyment of life.

 

High-Fibre foods offer many benefits, such as maintaining a healthy gut, boosting heart health and promoting weight loss. A balanced high fibre diet must include plenty of fruits (Avocado, prunes, guavas, pears, apples, bananas, oranges), vegetables (Potato, sweet potato, broccoli, pumpkin), legumes (Split peas, lentils, pinto beans, mung beans, black beans, chickpeas, soya beans and green peas), whole grains and nuts and seeds (Chia seeds, quinoa, pumpkin seeds, almonds, popcorn)  to ensure a healthy balance of soluble and insoluble fibre.

 

A healthy life is most important for a happy life. The modern pace of life hardly gives us time to take care of our health, so caught up are we with our day to day work. But ancient Indian wisdom says that the true fulfilment of life begins with good health.

 

We're increasingly living in a world where physical activity has stopped being a day-to-day part of our lives. We have domestic appliances to wash and dry for us and cars to get us around, and with the decline in manual labour many of us spend our working day sitting at desks.

 

When we get home, we think nothing of spending the evening sitting or even lying down in front of the TV. If that sounds like your routine, then it's important to remember any exercise at all is better than none.

 

Hence, good exercise, good nutrition and clean environment all contribute to a healthy living.
