The Appetite Episode #12: What is Health?

An Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Podcast

What is health and how do we get it? Today we challenge the idea that this question can be answered in a one-size-fits-all way. We explore today’s obsession with health, challenging how much of a moral issue health has become, and how we might be able to start looking at it not as an absence of disease, but more holistically as an intersection of well-being in body, mind, and spirit.
