I have a very unique outlook on health. I think of "health" as being the simple absence of disease in the body. The health of the person includes the harmony and the balance between the mind, body, and soul of a person. Thus, I believe that all patients should be told good and nice things about their health and this would enable them to feel good about themselves and feel better and cured. For example, a person would feel more healthy if he/she believes him/herself to be healthy. If the person is told by the other person, say a doctor or a nurse, that he/she is unhealthy, than the person might begin to feel unhealthy as well. It is only if the patient thinks that he/she is healthy can he/she really become healthy. I believe that the ability of experiencing one's real self would pave the way for the person to find the balance and harmony within the mind, body, and spirit/soul, and this would facilitate a higher amount of health present in the person. This is my philosophy, and one that I hope to practice when I am a professional nurse.
