Sub-health condition is defined by the World Health Organization as a state between health and disease when all necessary physical and chemical indexes are tested negative by medical equipments, things seem normal but the person experiences all kind of discomfiture and even pain.
Most of us have the experience of driving into a repair shop and tell the mechanic that your car acts strange and some parts do not work. After checking over, you are told that they can not find any thing wrong, and you can come back when something happens. You left and you begin to worry that something is going to happen to the car, but you do not know when and where!
It is the same thing to your health. Should you congratulate yourself and forget about it when your doctor tells you that they have found nothing wrong ? Perhaps not.
Criteria of Sub-health Condition:
If you suffer from the following symptoms you probably are in this condition:
* You have chronic fatigue complex as results of over taxing physical and mental work or long term stress, such as insomnia, forgetfulness, somnolence, profuse dreaming, dizziness, distention in the head, mental fatigue, cumbersome limbs, shoulder and back soreness, lack of concentration, proneness to flu and cold, etc.;
* You have a poor appetite, dizzy head and vision, depression and fright, vexation, agitation, irascibility, tidal fever, vacuity sweating, congestion, short of breath, general body weakness, irregular menses, poor sexual performance which are the results of endocrine disorders, menopausal complex and aging; and
* You experience vacuity sweating, congestion, short of breath, palpitation, dizzy head and vision, and general lack of strength, which occur after a serious illness or chronic diseases.
In a sense sub-health is more dangerous than disease. Ask yourself a common sense question: What is more dangerous, when you know the enemy or when you do not?
Sub-health is a critical state between health and disease, or a gray state of health. The body has a weak immune system and pathogens may invade easily and seriously, and it is more dangerous also because most people neglect it and many therefore get into serious troubles.
The demarcation between health and disease is thin. How thin? Very thin. Consider this:
Diabetes is reliably diagnosed if the test detects a blood-glucose concentration greater than 140 milligrams per decaliter after an overnight fast. What is the normal range? It is 70 to 100 mg/dl. Are you normal if your result is 101 to 139?
