Optimum health means not just an absence of disease, but also an abundance of vitality. Positive health, sometimes called ‘functional’ health, can be measured in three ways:
- Performance – how you perform physically and mentally
- Absence of ill health – lack of disease signs and symptoms
- Longevity – healthy lifespan
I believe the experience of a profound sense of well-being can be achieved by everyone. It is characterised by a consistent, clear, high level of energy, emotional balance, a sharp mind, a desire to maintain physical fitness and a direct awareness of what suits our bodies, what enhances our health, and what our needs are in any given moment.
This state of health includes resilience to infectious diseases and protection from the major killer diseases such as heart disease and cancer. As a result the ageing process is slowed down and we can live a long and healthy life. At its most profound level health is not merely the absence of pain or tension, but a joy in living, a real appreciation of what it is to have a healthy body with which to experience the many pleasures of this world.
The best way to transform your health is to work out a personal programme tailored to your health and dietary habits, and receive ongoing support. Joining our 100% Health Club provides this and we are offering a year’s free membership worth £100, a copy of my new book Good Medicine plus a supplement pack worth £60 to ten lucky people.
