Let's Talk About Health

Hello Everyone, I’m Dr. Lee Ann Kalaba, DC, at LAWC, and today we are continuing our series, “Do Your Part.” So, let’s talk about health. According to the WHO, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Health is a positive concept that emphasizes personal and social responsibility, as well as physical capacities.


Now, I want to introduce the concept of Essentialism. Essentialism is the philosophical view that, for any specific thing (such as an animal, a group of people, a physical object, a concept), there is a set of attributes that are necessary to its identity and function. I’m going to say that again… Essentialism is the philosophical view that, for any specific thing (such as an animal, a group of people, a physical object, a concept), there is a set of attributes that are necessary to its identity and function.

For example, a ball is round in nature-basketball, baseball, golf ball, right? Being round is essential to the identification a ball.

What, then, is essential in regard to optimum health and healing?

  • Optimum nerve flow, which is the function of the Nervous System
  • Optimum motion/movement
  • Optimum nutrition
  • Optimum emotional well-being

So, my question to you is this. During this time in our lives, when some of us have more free time on our hands than we ever will again in our adult lives, are you making the decisions necessary to create essential health. Are you choosing, every time, or at least 80-90% of the time, the very things that lead to optimal emotional well-being, nutrition, movement, and nerve flow. And if not, why not?

We at LAWC are here to support you now and down the road to consciously create your health future. I hope this series of videos inspires you. The thing is, hiding from a virus, locking yourself away and simply hoping you never get exposed is reactive in nature. That is NOT how the human body and it’s immune system works. This is NOT how you build your inner resources. Instead, be proactive by putting yourself in the most beneficial position possible to respond to any stress that life gives you, whether that’s a virus, bacteria from food poisoning, emotional stress from work, or the physical stress of running a marathon. You can build your internal resources so that you are capable of responding the way your body is intended. So, stay tuned as we discuss numerous topics that can help you get healthy and stay healthy!

We want to help you to Do Your Part. I’m Dr. Lee Ann Kalaba, DC, coming to you from Life Aligned Wellness Center.
