Physiologic Adaptive Range



When a person is asymptomatic, between Healthy and Sick, they are said to be within their Physiologic Adaptive Range.  This is the range within which the body is able to adapt to the stresses it is bombarded with, be they biomechanical, biochemical or psycho-spiritual, without becoming ill.  The more the body can cope, the wider is the Physiologic Adaptive Range.

Some people have a small adaptive range and need more care to become asymptomatic. The larger the distance between sickness and health, the larger the person’s Physiologic Adaptive Range, and the wider the window of compensation. The aimof true "Health Care"is to increase the Physiologic Adaptive Range. As a person shifts further towards true health, the less likely they are to become unwell.
