According to Wikipedia: …

According to Wikipedia:
"Health is the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living being. In humans, it is the general condition of a person's mind, body and spirit, usually meaning to be free from illness, injury or pain (as in “good health” or “healthy”). The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Although this definition has been subject to controversy, in particular as having a lack of operational value and the problem created by use of the word "complete", it remains the most enduring."

The freedictionary has it as:
health·y (hlth)
adj. health·i·er, health·i·est
1. Possessing good health.
2. Conducive to good health; healthful: healthy air.
3. Indicative of sound, rational thinking or frame of mind: a healthy attitude.
4. Sizable; considerable: a healthy portion of potatoes; a healthy raise in salary.

Skeat's Etymological Dictionary has it coming from the Anglo-Saxon and earlier terms which meant "whole". Which is confirmed by the Online Etymology Dictionary as :

health (n.)
O.E. hælþ "wholeness, a being whole, sound or well," from P.Gmc. *hailitho, from PIE *kailo- "whole, uninjured, of good omen" (cf. O.E. hal "hale, whole;" O.N. heill "healthy;" O.E. halig, O.N. helge "holy, sacred;" O.E. hælan "to heal"). Of physical health in M.E., but also "prosperity, happiness, welfare; preservation, safety."

  • 2. What is Healthy?This then gives us our solution and our problem.We really cant peal off the mental from the physical, since theamount of stress a person finds in their environment. And that isin both the modern and ancient uses of the term. A person wasnttruly healthy if they had some issue with people around them - ortheir environment.And funny enough, this lead me to you.I was born fortunate enough to grow up on a farm and see naturefirst hand. And then I went out into the world and came back inorder to run that farm again. In between, I was involved in allsorts of adventures, which mostly revolved around improvingpeoples mental or spiritual health (same thing, if you think itthrough.) Being back here on the farm allowed me someseclusion where I could think this through and write up a fewsummary books (found on my Lulu.com site, along with someauxiliary references Ive republished.)Lets consider for now that this part of existence is wrapped up - or you could just spend more timewith your own spiritual advisor if you need help in that area - but lets just let that all slide for now.The old phrase goes, "If you have your health, you have everything." To give you a comparative, Id tell you about Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee, of the Shaklee Corporation. While his life was explored by "The Shaklee Story" by R. L. Shook (and a nice excerpt of that book is found here), there are a couple of highlights you need to know. As a child, he was born with tuberculosis. Wasnt actually expected to live through the night - but he did. To help him heal, the family moved from the coal mines near Carlisle, Iowa, to a farm near Moorland in northern Iowa. There he spent as much time as he could outdoors, and helped pick various herbs and plants for remedies. This time spent in resting and reflection,along with the healthy food, sunshine, and exercise was his cure.And he then became dedicated to helping people heal. He trained and became a chiropractor. In FortDodge, Iowa, he built a clinic which was devoted to bringing people back to health. During this time,he contracted cancer from use of early (unshielded) x-ray machine use from helping others. While hewas told he would be a multiple amputee and only a few months to live at that, he refused that idea.Selling the clinic, he returned to Davenport, Iowa. There he began an intensive program of nutrition,continual blood analysis, and occasional fasting. In order to have the freshest, most nourishing diet, heregularly drove to the countryside, where he purchased fruits and vegetables from farmers the same daythey were picked. Over months, he started showing improvement and by four years after he wasdiagnosed, the Chicago clinic which originally diagnosed him, as well as the Mayo clinic, both wereimpressed with his progress. However, they could only say that the cancer was "in remission" and Order Online Today!

They alsohad no interest in pursuing the program whichShaklee had discovered - which is thatsupplements can help solve.A 17-year-old video tells more about this:http://youtu.be/PVdmVFvDzKQAnd this really brings us right up into ourmodern age where more and more of our foodis being processed and packaged, without a lotof regard for its nutritional value. Farmingbecame more and more mechanized and chemicalized. More people were living because our foodproduction and distribution lines were improved, especially after WWII, but the continuing rise ofobesity and diabetes incidences - both of which preventable with a more natural lifestyle which hasbalanced diets and exercise - all this shows we have far more work to do.A more current video (only 3 years old) tells the rest of this story: http://youtu.be/6uJE_XhGepUAnd this is really why I found Shaklee and became an Independent Distributor.Because it makes sense.And helps me help others with improving their own lives.Please do your own due diligence. Dont believe what I say - decide for yourself. And decide what isbest to bring "healthy" into your own world as a way of life.Thank you. Order Online Today!
