Optimal Wellbeing

To understand optimal wellbeing, we must understand the four facets of our being. Namely, our body (physical), heart (emotional), mind (mental), and spirit (spiritual). These facets work together to make us a whole person.

They are interconnected and interrelated so much so that what happens to one facet can greatly affect the other facets. The inter-relatedness of these facets is such that even if just one facet is out of equilibrium, all four facets may be dragged into a storm of cascading reactions.

…Our Body- our tangible structure and the five senses which enable us to touch, see, hear, smell and taste the world around us.

…Our Heart- our range of emotions from fear and anger to love and joy; our life center and compass.

…Our Mind- our knowledge, thoughts, attitudes and beliefs; our analytical self; the little voice in the “back of our head” (or, the “monkey brain” as Buddhists refer to it).

…Our Spirit- our self-awareness and alignment with our top values, our relationship with our creativity, inspiration and life purpose, and our relationship with a Higher Power.

When we are in a state of optimal wellbeing, we proactively tend to, nourish, and nurture each one of our facets to support an overall state of equilibrium within and amongst the facets.

On the other hand, when we are in a state of distress, any or all of our facets is out of balance as a result of perceived stressors. Stressors may be of biochemical, structural, electromagnetic, emotional, mental, and spiritual origin. The first three types of stressors mainly impact our physical facet. The last three types of stressors mainly impact our emotional, mental, and spiritual facets respectively. The word “mainly” implies that, regardless of their type, stressors may have ripple effect across facets. Welcome to the complex intelligent system called “human being”!

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
