The Seesaw Metaphor of Health

Think of health and disease as the two sides of a seesaw. When you have got more “good stuff” than “bad stuff” you have a relatively good health. When you have got more “bad stuff” than “good stuff” you have bad health, and the more “bad stuff” you accumulate over time, the more serious and chronic becomes your health condition.

The “bad stuff” are many. A poor diet, bad genes, lack of exercise, poor posture, smoking, drinking, pollution, emotional stress, lack of love, and lack of sleep are just a few examples. 

“We all know that saying that it’s the last straw that breaks the camel’s back. We recognize the last straw as something we feel we can definitely pinpoint as the cause of illness.” – Patrick Halford (Good Medicine)
