The first thing we need to do is change our definition of what being “healthy” really means. To me being “healthy” does not just mean the absence of symptoms of a disease/diseases or the absence of a disease itself or of diseases themselves. I would define being “healthy” as an ideal state of wellness in which the body functions at maximum efficiency both physically and mentally with the least amount of outside or medical intervention ( prescription or nonprescription medications or any other medical treatment). It is a state where one feels as good as one can, has as much energy as one can have and if ill or injured can heal as fast as one can. The only way you will know this is if you take good care of your body and give it everything it needs.
