The Triad of Health

Our bodies are wired for health and vitality, not for illness and disease. Health is how our bodies function, not how they feel. Health comes from the inside out. And, importantly, the choices we make play a part in our health and well-being.

What is health?

Dorland's Medical Dictionary defines health as a "state of optimal physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity."

Our bodies are wired for health and vitality, not for illness and disease. Health is how our bodies function, not how they feel. Health comes from the inside out. And, importantly, the choices we make play a part in our health and well-being.

There are three components that make up the Triad of Health. They are Structural, Chemical and Emotional. Combined, they present an overall state of a person's health.

Structure is the foundation of the human body and the Triad. It includes the bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and nerves. Shifts in structural alignment result from accidents, physical inactivity, or incorrect patterns of movement that have developed over time. Misalignments, also called subluxations, of the spine put pressure on the nerves that lead from the spinal column to the organs, glands, muscles, and other bones in our body, creating dysfunction.

The Chemical make-up and balance of the body includes diet and vitamins and mineral intake, as well as the function of organs and organ systems. The chemical aspect is disrupted by the ingestion of nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, sugar, and sugar substitutes like aspartame, as well as toxins in the air we breathe. Toxicity from food has a cumulative effect. Refined foods, fast foods, and high-tech processed foods have a negative impact on the health of the person consuming them.

Emotion is the third leg of the triangle. Not only does physical well-being impact emotions, but emotions can greatly impact the body, both positively and negatively. The emotional element of the triangle includes the feelings of fear, anger, guilt, depression and anxiety. Emotional stress in the form of negative thoughts can have painful consequences.

The sides of the equilateral triangle all affect and interrelate with one other. For example, being in a constant state of the emotion of fear may cause a muscle spasm or contraction in the back. The muscle spasm creates pain which affects more than just the back. The pain influences the food choices made, leaning more toward "comfort" foods, rather than healthy foods.

Food choices affect the body's chemistry in terms of nutritional deficiencies.

Every cell in your body is both structurally and functionally related to every other cell in your body. All your thoughts, beliefs, fears, and dreams are connected within the structure and function of your physical body. By discovering and integrating these relationships, you allow yourself to bring greater harmony into your body and mindComputer Technology Articles, diminishing internal conflicts and increasing your overall health and well-being!
