       What is true Health? Weight, exercise, diet, nutrition, sleep, Nutritional supplements, freedom from stress, awareness, self-realization, long term fulfillment, depth of character; these are some of the components of True Health. Your body, mind and your soul are not three separate things. They are three ways of viewing one thing. And that thing is "Life." That is what you have and what you need to take care of; namely: your Life... past, present, and future. Did you know that with the present moment you can change the future and the past?

       Buddhism teaches that we have karma -  which is a collection of causes we made in the past and their resulting effects. Some of these effects have already taken place, and some have not. Some will occur in the future, when the environmental conditions are right to trigger the effects. Until then these effects, either pleasing or negative remain dormant.
       For example, let's say you are destined to win the lottery in 2020. I guess you will have to wait. But there is a way to speed up this pleasing event. Also what if you are destined to be in a very serious auto accident next year?  Can you delay it for 20 years? Yes. Can you elminate this horrible event from your future all together? Yes.
      How can you do that? Great question. You need to change your karma. Assuming the negative event comes from a negative cause, you can change it by making very good, positive powerful causes today, in the present moment.
       But what is a good cause or a bad cause. There are all types and levels of good and bad. Stealing a pack of gum at the store is a bad cause. Stealing a car is worse. Kidnapping is much worse, etc. However, outside the secular realm of classifying good causes and bad causes is the realm of the Mystic Law of the Universe, which is Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
       At this deeper level is the notion of eternity. For example, destroying ones' hope for a better life is a greater bad than stealing someones' car. If you steal my car, I will be insanely angry. But, I have insurance, and even if I don't, I can get a second job, save money, and buy another car.  But if you destroy my hope, I may become a drug addict, leave my wife and kids, become homeless or even attempt suicide. It is obviously much worse.
       Hope for a better life is basic. Following ones dream is basic. Trying to invent something new that will help millions is basic. When you destroy a persons desire or hope of doing thoses things you are making a very bad cause. The result is much worse that just stealing a car. If you steal a car you will go to prison for 10 years. In light of eternity, however, .... for example, if you destroy someones hope, in your next 10 future lifetimes you may be born, ugly, sick, and poor.This is just a hypothetical example to make a point.
The point is... if you want to really change your karma, you need to make a significant over-riding good cause  - not just one but many of them. Then you can definitely change your negative karma. You can change poison into medicine.
Then, in addition to all the other things I discussed in the beginning, you can have True Health.
