Health and wellness: An overview


Author(s): Dr. Aranga Panbilnathan

Abstract: The world health refers to a state of complete emotional and physical well-being. Good health is central to handling stress and living a longer and more active life. This study explains the meaning of good health the types of heath and how to preserve good health. Healthcare exists to help people to maintain this optimal state of health.
The world health organization in (1948) officially defined, health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
This declaration could be considered by some as too ambitions and absolute in view of its focus on complete well being.
In 1984 the world health organization compiled a report from a working group discussion on health promotion. Health is viewed as the ability of a person or group of individuals to “realize aspiration and satisfy needs and similarly” to change or cope with the environment.
Hence, health is considered a “positive concept”, emphasising social and personal resources as well as physical capacities. With this view the attention lies on promoting healthy practices, even in situations whose disease is already present.
