Wellness, What Is It?

wellness2Wellness is the consequence of the body, mind, and spirit being in balance ensuing an overall feeling of well-being. It is a view on health that has moved focus from illness to that of the state of the entire being and its ongoing development.

Until recently we have been used to and depending on modern medicine for all of our health needs. We have grown up with seeing our doctor for any ill health that we may be suffering and in a majority of circumstances being prescribed medication to deal with the symptoms, but not actually questioning the cause of the symptoms.

Without modern medicine many people would not be alive today. But some problems could be prevented if we took more responsibility for our own health. To do that means that we must learn about ourselves and recognise the symptom of ill health and treat it before it becomes a full blown illness.

The health service today is extremely over stretched and this means that there is little time for analysis of a patient’s problem. Medication is prescribed in many cases after just a short time in the doctor’s surgery. It is obvious that 5 or 10 minutes of a doctor’s time is not enough to get to the root cause of someone’s headache or inability to sleep which could be caused by something traumatic happening some time ago.
With health resources being over stretched more and more people are awakening to the benefits of complementary therapies to aid their well-being.

Alternative therapies is a term often used to imply a replacement for conventional medicine but in reality the two should be working hand in hand, creating the term ‘complementary’.

Wellness can be described as a state that combines health and happiness. Thus anything that contributes to you being healthy and or happy will contribute to your well-being

I believe it is all about communication!
We are who we tell ourselves to be but more importantly who we tell our selves unconsciously! We are who we think and say to ourselves consciously & unconsciously.
