What is the definition of health & where am I on the scale?

The World Health Organization defines health as a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease…” To achieve a true state of health, the body, mind and spirit must all work together harmoniously. The Health Assessment examines the current state of the three main components of genuine well-being: Physical Health, Emotional Happiness and a Peaceful Mind.
