How will you define health? Is health not having a cold to you? Would it be feeling good? Or perhaps health is something more. In chiropractic we've always considered health to be something far more than not being sick, something not just painless, something which speaks to a greater quality lifestyle itself. But don't take our word for it. Listed below are two definitions of health that appear to approach the fullness of what we are talking about in chiropractic.
World Health Organization - Definition of Health: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being but not merely the lack of disease or infirmity"
The Vatican - Pope John Paul, Definition of Health: "Health is a dynamic tension towards physical, mental, social and spiritual harmony, and not merely the lack of illness, which gives man the opportunity to fulfill the mission that has been entrusted to him, according to the state of life in which he finds himself."
