Health is really about one thing – function. How well you are functioning determines how truly well you are. Health and wellness is about more than just “feeling good”; it is about functioning at your ultimate potential. When your body is functioning at 100%, you have the innate ability to adapt to anything that occurs in your environment and you can continually maintain optimal health. Ill health results from from an inability to adapt to stressors (i.e. a weakened immune system, stress, etc.) and the result is decreased functionality. Events like car accidents and physical traumas are often out of your control, but how you are functioning and adapting to your environment on a daily basis is completely within your power. Therefore, the choice to be healthy or unhealthy is ultimately under your control.
