We are physical, chemical and psychological beings and we live in an environment. An imbalance in any of these domains can deplete your health.
The four aspects of super health are:
Optimum nutrition - which seeks to perfect the balance on a chemical level.
Fitness - which seeks to perfect the balance on a physical level.
The right attitude - which seeks to perfect the balance on a mental and emotional level.
A healthy environment - which seeks to perfect the environment in which we live in.
Then there is our soul/spirituality, which we can define as our ‘connectedness with others, our environment and ourselves. In oriental systems this also relates to ‘chi’ or ‘prana’ vital energy that we can tap into when our mind and body are in harmony. Yoga and tai chi are great examples of this as the generate vital energy by bringing the mind and body into harmony. This vital energy comes to us through food and through breathing and can also be generated internally by being in the right state of mind.
