This discussion post needs 3 courses, with one being the book listed.. Attached is a a better description of what is needed. Thank you

The concepts of health and illness are not easily defined and are difficult to understand. The World Health organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.” Other definitions include the state of being free from illness or injury, or a general condition of the body or mind in equilibrium. The many definitions of health make it difficult to grasp and understand it’s meaning. The definitions of illness are just as elusive. Is it the absence or opposite of health or is it better defined as a disease or condition? No matter the definition we need to understand that the experience of being ill is also defined by the patient. What health may mean to a 21 year old athlete versus a 60 year old diabetic will vary greatly. Therefore we find individuals defining health and illness according to their own definitions. We also must realize that culture greatly affects one’s definition of health and illness, therefore as advanced practice nurses in order to provide competent care we must understand health and illness from our client’s perspective.

Based on the various definitions of health, define health and explain if you agree with one definition more than the other? Why?
