Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

—World Health Organization, 1948




What is Wellness in Alternative Medicine?

Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. It has been used in the context of alternative medicine since Halbert L. Dunn, M.D., began using the phrase high level wellness in the 1950s. The modern concept of wellness did not, however, become popular until the 1970s.[1]

The term has been defined by the Wisconsin-based National Wellness Institute as an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence. [1] This is consistent with a shift in focus away from illness in viewing human health, typical of contexts where the term wellness is used. In other words, wellness is a view of health that emphasizes the state of the entire being and its ongoing development.

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