Optimal health. We all want to have it, but very few of us are anywhere close to achieving it. Unfortunately, this is because health is not a high priority for most of us. Even more so, most of us don’t even know how to define optimal health. Our medical model teaches us that health is the absence of disease. We can guarantee you that health is much more than this. There are millions of people who don’t have a diagnosable disease, but are still in poor or mediocre health.
Interestingly, there are also many people who do have a disease but are in good to excellent health. How could this be? Because we define health in a much different way than our western medical model does. We define health as the absence of addiction, not disease. Health is about living spontaneously.
