The Wellness Options Guide to Heal
In its constitution, the World Health Organization defines health as "as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." So why do so many guides to health have so much to say about disease and so little to say about wellness? The key to good health, say the editors and experts of bi-monthly magazine WellnessOptions, is the decision to pursue wellness as a way of life. It is only when we take responsibility for our own health-when we decide wellness is central to our day-to-day existence-that we can attain optimal well-being.But there is so much information out there, much of it conflicting, that it is difficult to know what choices to pursue in our quest for wellness. The Wellness Options Guide to Health brings order to the chaos, integrating conventional medicine, natural and Oriental approaches to well-being. Lillian So Chan, the founding editor of WellnessOptions, together with an international team of medical experts, provides balanced and informed perspectives on a wide range of health issues, including sleep, nutrition, exercise, sexuality and aging. The result is more than a guide to health-it's a guide to life.
