Better Backs - Bernard S Burton

There are many ways at looking at health. In Applied Kinesiology we want to discuss health as a Triad. The three legs of the triangle are structural, chemical and mental. If the sides are all equal then the person will have optimal health. A shortening or lengthening of any side will be less than optimum. Note that nowhere in this discussion is pain or lack of it part of health. Because it isn't. Pain is a natural response to noxious stimuli. It is normal for someone to have pain after they hit their hand with a hammer, but they are no less healthy.
