We study illness extensively, but who studies health? If you check your local bookstore or library for ‘health books’, you will find a long shelf of ‘sickness’ books. In the indexes of these books, you might find ‘health care’ (sick care), ‘health insurance’ (sick insurance), and ‘health clinic’ (sick clinic), but seldom will you find actual references to or discussions of ‘health’.
The book Introduction to Healthicine explores the concepts of health, healthiness and healthicine, through the hierarchy of healthicine, and relates those concepts to illness and aging. It is a book that challenges many of our medical paradigms, simply because it pursues healthiness instead of illness.
