wellness


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Legal, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

well·ness

(wel'nĕs),
A philosophy of life and personal hygiene that views health as not merely the absence of illness but the full realization of one's physical and mental potential, as achieved through positive attitudes, fitness training, a diet low in fat and high in fiber, and the avoidance of unhealthful practices (smoking, drug and alcohol abuse, overeating).

Wellness programs are widely offered by employers, health insurance programs, and social service agencies. Formal programs typically include preventive measures (for example, immunizations against pneumococcal pneumonia and influenza in the elderly) and surveillance for common diseases (for example, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and breast and colon cancer). Such programs tend to attract people already attuned to healthful attitudes and practices. Little clinical evidence exists to support their usefulness or justify their expense.

Patient discussion about wellness

Q. I am a nutrition and wellness trainer. I am a bachelor who is staying with 5 more in a rented room which cost $10 a day. As I am unemployed, five other friends of mine are sharing the rent without taking a single dollar from me as they know my difficulties. I am a nutrition and wellness trainer. I lost my job 2 months back and searching for new one. As I do not have too much of money I also do not eat well. I am scared that I will get sick and not have enough of money for my hospitalization. Please tell me what to do?

A. Please don’t get sick at this point of time both mentally and physically. You could be a nutritionist but you have to learn to apply this to your life also. I am sure at least eat a vegetarian diet and get some nutrition. Do not neglect to eat proteins at least once in a while to prevent protein deficiency. Keep up your spirits, drink plenty of fluids, and keep your mind occupied. I am sure something will land up at your doorstep soon enough.
