The author Sarafino, places common beliefs in the absence of illness as indicators of health in contrast with Antonovsky’s illness/wellness.

In Asian cultures, he suggests, health is defined as the “balance between self and nature and across the individual’s various roles in life.” The synergy between nature, self, and others can result in a positive state called health.
