"true health" according to philosopher George Ohsawa

George Ohsawa the Japanese philosopher, rejected the definition of health as solely the absence of disease, instead he maintained that health is a multidimensional condition including both physical and psychological aspects. True health according to Ohsawa consists of:

~consistent and high physical energy
~the ability to fall asleep easily and to awake after a few hours totally refreshed
~a hearty appetite for simple, nourishing food
~a positive and happy frame of mind, even in the midst of difficulties
~a good memory
~clarity and speed in thought and in action
~a profound gratitude for the gift of life
