Integrative Health and Wellbeing

Starting with a question "Is Being Healthy equal to lack of Illness?",  the WHO (World Health Organization) has defined that health is " a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing and not merely an absence of disease and infirmity."  Health is not merely lack of disease.  Absence of diagnosed illness doesn't indicate wellness.  Most chronic illnesses start with an unhealthy lifestyle and have developed over time before they have been diagnosed.  Shifting from a disease centered mindset to a health and wellbeing centered mindset is the foundation for a happier and more fulfilling life.

What is Integrative Health and Wellbeing?

Integrative Health and Wellbeing is about the entirety of a person balancing mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and social wellness as a whole.  It is a dynamic state where a person continues to maximize his or her physical, mental and social functioning in supportive environments to live a full and productive life regardless of gender, age or physical state.  No matter where you currently are , you can always set a path to pursue a growing, evolving and more balanced state of health and wellbeing.

“Wellness is the experience of living life with high levels of awareness, conscious choice, self-acceptance, interconnectedness, love, meaning and purpose. Wellness is the individual's life journey (and our society's larger task) of taking Abraham Maslow's concept of Self-Actualization and applying it to mind, body, spirit and our interconnectedness with other people and our environment."
