Having Good Health
by Ron Kurtus (updated 17 March 2023)
Do you want to have good health? Just about everyone does, especially those who have physical health problems. But good health isn't always easy to attain. You need knowledge about how to take care of your health and the motivation to apply that knowledge.
Staying physically healthy means that you are protecting yourself from illness and disease. But if you do have some ailment, you want to take actions to enhance your healing process and regain your health. Everyone wants to stay healthy, but achieving that goal can be a challenge due to outside forces and your own destructive actions.
Taking care of your physical health to prevent problems should be a major focus. Curing, healing and pain relief are the necessary efforts in restoring health once there is a problem. Effectively dealing with physicians and healthcare professionals is also important in recovery.
The purpose of these lessons is to encourage you to overcome the challenges and to give you a start at improving your physical health, as well as the health of your loved ones. It is also useful for those studying a career in healthcare or medicine.
