The Meaning of Health is a must read for anyone concerned with the well-being of children, students, or patients, because the purpose and love in your own life are all you really have to inspire and guide anyone else.
"It's never too late to be ahead of your time."
The Meaning of Health sees far beyond the mechanics of conventional and alternative health care. It values your decisions prior to your diagnosis and honours your perceptions long after your prognosis. It clearly points out that the purpose of facing unavoidable pain is to prevent needless suffering.
The Meaning of Health demands a higher context of all scientific, psychological, and spiritual evidence through deeper insights of body, mind, and soul. Then, it excavates the remains of the ancient wisdom and scientific concepts that tend to get lost in the translation.

It's this living experience of purpose, love, responsibility, and freedom-at the levels of body, mind, and soulÑthat serves up an all-inclusive helping of health that forever satisfies. Of course, the meaning of good and evil, nature and nurture, and science and religion naturally come up when defusing the dispute over mind and matter. However, it's your evolving awareness that is most important for dealing with pain, lessening mistakes, and making all internal debate a little less daunting.
The endless search for the ultimate fix eases up, while the ceaseless struggle for absolute answers calms down, with the inner certainty that you knew all along. The Meaning of Health is written on many levels in a poetic style to induce your imagination wherever you happen to be.
