According to Vocabulary.com, good health means “the state of being vigorous and free from bodily or mental disease.”
Kaden Chiropractic (Redondo Beach, CA) shares a particularly lovely and well thought-out description of good health:
The English word “health” comes from the Old English word hale, meaning “wholeness, a person who is whole, sound of mind and well.”
If you’re healthy, you’re WHOLE in ever sense of the word.
The most famous modern definition of health was created during a Preamble to the Constitution of the World Health Organization which says:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
It didn’t say, health is the absence of symptoms. Hippocrates said, “We must turn to nature itself, to the observations of the body in health and in disease to learn the truth.” and “A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses.”
H.G. Bohn said, “Nature, time and patience are three great physicians.” [Some believe that] our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense and that’s one of the reasons so many people need [health] care [intervention]. People are giving their bodies orders that don’t make sense.
People [often seek] instant relief and to be fixed overnight. Benjamin Disraeli said, “Time is the great physician.” There was an old Spanish proverb that said, “A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his own car and tools.”
These kinds of thoughts and ideas on health have been around for centuries. Alexander the Great even said, “I am dying with the help of too many physicians.” while Benjamin Franklin said, “GOD heals, and the doctor takes the fee.”
Mark Twain said, “The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.” [We think there are countless ways you can also ENJOY being healthy!]
For you, physical health should mean a good, whole healthy body, which is healthy because of regular physical activity (exercise) of some type, good nutrition, lots of good, clean water, sunshine, a nervous system that functions at 100% with no interference, and adequate rest. People are exposed to so much “physical health propaganda” data these days that it is hard to decide what is relevant and what is not.
