What is health anyway? (4)

We cannot define health as the absence of symptoms.  We need another definition, and in chiropractic we have one.

The word health comes from  the Greeks and it means whole.  In chiropractic, we know that health equals wholeness.  Wholeness has two meaning here.  First, wholeness in structure, that all the various parts are present.  Second, and most importantly, wholeness in function, that each part is coordinated with all the other parts. It is this harmonious wholeness that is health.
