Health is a natural state that the human body is always trying to maintain on our health. Many people define health as an absence of illness. This is not a very dynamic way to look at health. We see health in a more vital positive way. Barometers of health include:
- good energy or no fatigue,
- sleeping well,
- having a good appetite, especially for simple food,
- regular daily bowel movements,
- good memory
- and other important aspects for a healthy person.
As health problems develop one or more of these barometers become an issue. Sickness does not develop overnight. The macrobiotic approach to health enables us to see our direction and make necessary adjustments, before serious issues develop. We can then live a fulfilling, exciting life.
