           Health should be the most important thing in one’s life. Even if at times we don’t always think so. However, our lifestyles are so fast paced that sometimes we don’t stop to realize we need to take care of our health everyday. We were born with just one life and one body.  Health used to be defined as the absence of disease, however now health is achieved through the presence of complete physical, mental and social well-being.  Several factors including biology, environment, lifestyle and healthcare services determine one’s level of health. Optimal health is an on going process of continuing to maintain and improve lifestyle and environment.

              Human biology is what we are born with. The DNA that we get from our parents will determine our physical traits. Although we can alter our appearance, human biology cannot be changed. This is the one factor of health that we are born with and cannot modify unlike our environment, lifestyle or healthcare.

            The 3 other factors of our everyday health are areas that can be improved upon, changed or adapted. Lifestyle and environment are made up of someone’s daily living. They are completely controlled by the person.  Social activity, hygiene, and stress management are areas of lifestyle that can be improved upon.

            Healthcare services have continued to improve over that past decade.  Although not everyone has access to the same types of health benefits, everyone has the right to decide when, what type and where they get healthcare treatment. There are numerous types of healthcare from general medicine to neurology to acupuncture to chiropractic care and so many more. Although many insurance plans dictate what types of doctors you can see and when, that doesn’t determine your treatment path. You and you alone determine which doctor you want to see and what type of treatment you want to receive.

            Whether you want to improve your health, maintain your health, or you aren’t concerned with your health presently, knowledge about health is important. Learning ways to maintain health and prevent illness will benefit you throughout your entire life.
