Asked in Health
What is the difference between dynamic health and relative health?
The subjective judgments that people make about their level of health demonstrate the relative nature of health, with our health being relative to others and ourselves over time. Our health varies over time, fluctuating from minute to minute, day to day and year to year. Illness, accidents, personal experiences or environmental factors can move our level of health any number of times during our lives from very well to well, off-colour to ill, very unwell to critically ill and then back to full health. These continual changes in our state of health mean that health is dynamic.
