What is Health?
At the time of the creation of the World Health Organization (WHO), in 1948, health was defined as being “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Modern medicine uses the term “Wellness.” Wellness can also be described as “the constant, conscious pursuit of living life to its fullest potential.”

Longevity
The concept of wellness is similar to what the Taoist sages called “Longevity.” However is addition to the basic precepts of ‘wellness” that we know today, these Taoists developed sophisticated exercises, meditation techniques, breathing exercises and herbal knowledge that they found can strengthen the body.

Shen Nong was said to have lived almost 5000 years ago. In the Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing, the oldest herbal text in China states there are three levels of medicine. (Nourishing Destiny – Lonny Jarrett)


The lower class of medicine……govern the treatment of illness. If one wishes to remove pathogens, break accumulations and cure illness, one should use this…

The middle class of medicines govern the nourishment of one’s nature……..If one wishes to prevent illness and to supplement depletions and emaciations one should use these…..

The upper class of medicines….governs the nourishment of destiny……..if one wishes to prolong the years of life without aging, one should use these…..


The nourishment of destiny, the prolonging of our years, these concepts have been alive in China for thousands of years. What does it mean to nourish destiny? It doesn’t refer to helping you become a successful career or finding some type of specific life path.
Your destiny is you.

Nourishing destiny is strengthening you, so you can become the best you, that you can be.
Strong and clear; body, mind, emotions and spirit

Confront the difficulties while they are still easy.
Accomplish the great while it is still small.
The difficult problems in life
Always start off being simple.
Great affairs always start off being small.
Therefore the sage never deals with the great;
And yet, is able to actualize greatness.

Tao Te Ching,
Lao Tzu – Chapter 63
