What is health for you, in your life and living?
What is health? According to World Health Organization (WHO) “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” It was written 1948 and I find it really beautiful!
So what is health to you? If you have had any kind of health problem you know how much it impacts your life. It could be some kind of pain or a rash. Some diagnosed chronic disease like diabetes or the fatal, slow, grinding kind, like MS. It’s enough to get the flu or twist an ankle to realize what is most important to any human; to stay in good health!
It is sad to se how very few live under the conditions stated by WHO. So many in our world might have a reasonably good physical health situation but mentally and emotionally it is really bad. If you live under constant stress it will make your skin more sensitive and can trigger skin problems.
How to define what is health when you have a disease? Also medication that is supposed to help for another ailment can give bad side effects. Even when a medication is intended to help, it can brake down at the same time. As with cortisone for eczema or psoriasis. It can take away the itch, but simultaneously it makes the skin thin and sensitive.
To promote healthy skin make sure you take steps to control your situation. Health and nutrition go intimately together. Your body runs on nutrition and when you are facing any health challenge it does require more nutrition. Nutriton can mean a lot of things… Eat well. Rest enough. Feed your spirit. Hug many. Laugh a lot! 😀
