The Value & Importance of Sound Health


The greatest asset that any-one can have is sound health. Sound health is more important that financial & material wealth. It is said that health is wealth. A wealthy person is definitely a healthy person. Health is life as a person’s life becomes miserable & useless without sound health.

What is Health?

As defined by the World Health Organization, health is a “state of complete physical, mental, & social well-being & not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. Health is a state of being free from illness or injury.

Poverty which is a state where an individual can’t afford the basic necessities of life is a terrible condition that can befall any-body but let me let you know that the lack or the loss of sound health is even a much worse unpleasant scenario than poverty. When you lack or lose sound health your life is going to become meaningless, miserable, & frustrating. The lack or loss of sound health is much more terrible & frustrating than poverty.

Health is Wealth

Health is said to be wealth because even though money might be able to enhance health, money can’t purchase sound health because there are diseases that no amount of money can cure or even alleviate. Late President Umaru Yar’Adua of Nigeria would have been alive today if money could buy sound health & cure his infirmity as he was rich enough to afford the best doctor & hospital in the world. No fee would have been too great for him to pay to acquire good health but it was not available.

A healthy man who is financially & materially poor is actually a wealthy man but a wealthy man who is lacking sound health is actually a poor man. Late Umaru Yar’Adua of Nigeria would gladly have exchanged his wealth for sound health if it was possible. Sound health makes a poor man look like a wealthy man but bad health can actually a disfigure rich man & make him undesirable & unpresentable.

Health is Life

Health is life because an individual who lacks sound health or who is living in sickness has become nothing but a moving corpse. It will get to a point where such a person will become so frustrated with life that he is going to pray for death to take him away. Sound health is a treasure that should be cherished, preserved, & handled with care when you have it. Don’t personally destroy your health & your life in the process by your negative habits, actions & lifestyle like the late king of pop music Michael Jackson did. If you want to really appreciate the value of sound health that you possess pay a visit to any General hospital or University Teaching hospital that is close to you.

  • Premature ageing.
  • Waste of resources, time & money etc
