Health is not defined as just the absence of disease. Health is a state of spiritual, emotional, mental and physical well-being.
The vital ingredients of a healthy life are happiness, meaning, purpose, love and success. All these aspects of yourself must work in harmony, and you have to put balanced energy into each of them in order to achieve the optimal state of well-being.
Your body is infinitely wise, with a natural, inborn instinct toward balance and health. Trust it. Trust your intuition and your instincts. Learn how to listen to your body’s whispers before they turn into screams. By following certain natural principles, you allow your body to do what it does best: to maintain its own balance and health.
Healthy living doesn't just happen. Healthy living requires concrete strategies and actions to achieve it. Healthy living is about taking responsibility and making smart health choices for today and for the future. Developing healthy behaviour free of addictions, eating right, getting physically fit and building your emotional and spiritual wellness, are all a part of planning a healthy lifestyle.
Happiness isn't necessarily about the people around you, wealth or situations, but to how you perceive all these things. Following your emotional response pattern, you'll discover that it is actually your core beliefs that are responsible for the way you feel. Your belief system acts like a filter, and regardless of what happens outside, it alters your perception and makes you feel the way you feel.
Your beliefs are constantly shaping the world you live in. The belief system is the foundation, the primary factor that makes up your behavioural pattern and your identity. Whether it is secular or religious, a belief system is always present and governing your life. Your beliefs are your most deeply rooted truths, the ones you value most. Your entire life is led by your beliefs. And what if those beliefs are not accurate?
Your view of yourself, others and the world around you is the core of your belief system. These views are not about science or proofs; they are about personal choice. This is a major choice that won’t directly impact your career, your wealth or social status, but it will impact the core meaning and purpose of all these. Thus, you can literally change your life by changing your beliefs.
Since you always draw your power from the deepest reality you are aware of, this choice will have a deeply important impact on your health and on the quality of your life. Moreover, the best results a therapy has to offer always comes out of the therapeutic approach that you trust the most.
When it comes to choosing the view of yourself, you can either “invent” yourself, or you can choose and adopt one of the three most well-known existential models.
If the world you perceive is Euclidean and despiritualized, you may adopt the allopathic model and see yourself as a sophisticated, linear and predictable chemical machine. You may see yourself in terms of chemical reactions and equations, in terms of chemical elements, molecules, proteins, cholesterol, fat, minerals, hormones, chemical transmitters, etc. The advantage with this model is the apparent simplicity. So, when you are ill, since according to this model all dysfunctions are caused by a chemical imbalance, the logical repair solution for this model would be to use a chemical input aimed at rebalancing “the machine.” This model is symptomatic and, at best, it will eventually ease the symptoms rather than the causes of your imbalances. The main weakness of this model is that it views humans as purposeless, soulless and spiritless chemical machines, or merely the result of a natural, selective evolution.
Or, if your worldview is mathematical, and the space of your reality is geometric, you can adopt Ulric Neisser's cognitive model and see yourself as an intelligent, programmable supercomputer. According to this model, emotions are nothing but a kind of byproduct of your cognitive brain. Since almost all the known physical illness and imbalances are psychosomatic, (meaning that emotions are triggering, worsening or even causing physical illnesses,) the solution to health would appear to be a cognitive learning process, aimed at improving your cognitive functions and consequently to rebalance whatever health imbalances might have occurred. Similar to the previous model, the cognitive model views humans as purposeless, soulless and spiritless, programmable and sophisticated bio-cybernetic intelligent machines.
Or, you can adopt the spiritual model and perceive yourself as a kind of an eternal spirit with a human experience, rather than an evolved, intelligent ape. An advantage in adopting this model is that you’ll not only defeat your inborn fear of death, but you’ll have the opportunity of a healthier life by granting yourself the privilege of accessing the resources of all three available levels of healing. So, when you’re in need of improving or regaining your health, you can either access a form of spiritual healing, which is aimed at restoring your spiritual, emotional and physical well-being, or you can access a form of emotional healing, which is aimed at restoring your emotional and consequently your physical health. Or, you can take advantage of homeopathy, acupuncture or one of the various herbalist, or natural remedies to address your somatic or physiological function imbalances from a traditional perspective.
Living in love, in truth and in accordance with your needs is the pathway to life’s fulfillment. When you live for your desires, you feed your ego, and thus you enter a vicious circle of self-disappointment and sufferance. Because the ego is, by its nature, always insatiable.
Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit.
Health is the natural achievement of healthy living.

"Bad religion is arrogant, dogmatic and intolerant. And so is bad science. But unlike religious fundamentalists, scientific fundamentalists do not realize that their opinions are based on faith. They think they know the truth. They believe that science has already solved the fundamental questions." The Science Delusion
“These findings are obviously highly relevant to medicine because a great deal of healing depends on regeneration and on the self-healing capacities of bodies. Healing was going on, long before the invention of medicine. All animals and plants have healing capacities on which they totally depend, and so did our human ancestors before shamans, plants and later doctors and surgeons came along. The ability to heal is inherent to all forms of life and these morphogenetic fields underline that healing process. Of course, medicine can help this process, and I believe that most conventional and alternative medicine relies on the body's own healing abilities that already exist, and they enhance, encourage, or catalyze them.” - Morphogenetic Fields of Body and Mind
"The Biology of Belief" will forever change how you think about your own thinking. Stunning new scientific discoveries about the biochemical effects of the brain’s functioning show that all cells of your body are affected by your thoughts. Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., a renowned cell biologist, describes the precise molecular pathways through which this occurs. Using simple language, illustrations, humor, and everyday examples, he demonstrates how the new science of epigenetics is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter, and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species. - Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles
"Fasting is actually far more beneficial than just stimulating autophagy. It does two good things. By stimulating autophagy, we are clearing out all our old, junky proteins and cellular parts. At the same time, fasting also stimulates growth hormone, which tells our body to start producing some new snazzy parts for the body. We are really giving our bodies the complete renovation." How to renew your body: Fasting and autophagy
“Everyone from diabetics to top athletes are advised to make sure they eat "enough" carbs to keep their systems from crashing. This misguided advice is at the heart of many of our current health failures. It's also a driving factor in our diabetes, heart disease and cancer epidemics. Dietary fats are actually the preferred fuel of human metabolism, and this can be traced back to our evolutionary roots. One of the keys to long-term weight management and good health is healthy mitochondrial function, and for that you need to get your net carb, protein and fat ratios correct.” - Burning Fat for Fuel Increases Quality and Quantity of Life
"People with low levels of vitamin D in their blood have significantly higher rates of virtually every disease and disorder you can think of: cancer, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, heart attack, stroke, depression, cognitive impairment, autoimmune conditions, and more. The vitamin is required for calcium absorption and is thus essential for bone health, but as evidence mounted that lower levels of vitamin D were associated with so many diseases, health experts began suspecting that it was involved in many other biological processes as well. Yet vitamin D supplementation has failed spectacularly in clinical trials. Five years ago, researchers were already warning that it showed zero benefit, and the evidence has only grown stronger. In November, one of the largest and most rigorous trials of the vitamin ever conducted—in which 25,871 participants received high doses for five years—found no impact on cancer, heart disease, or stroke." - Is Sunscreen the New Margarine?
"In host theory, people don’t “catch” germs that give them diseases. Instead disease-causing germs are actually opportunistic, thriving in people whose bodies have a weakness or imbalance internally. They are a byproduct of the disease, not a cause of the disease. You see, you have MRSA, cancer, viruses, and bacteria in you and on you all the time, every day! A healthy balance of beneficial bacteria and healthy body environments keeps the unhealthy stuff out and in balance." - Pasteur Versus Béchamp: The History of Germ Theory
“This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia.” Original Assignee of the US6630507B1 patent: - US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Medicinal Cannabis Indications for Use by State
