thank you for giving that website i search on that,i appreciate it,for me a little additional from my knowledge to share to you also some health promotion,wellness education and illness prevention programs are operated by health care agencies;others are independently operated.likewise,colleges and community centre offer health promotion and illness prevention programs.and the goal of these activities is to improve the client's level of health through preventive health service,environmental protection,and health education.an individual takes responsibility for health and wellness by making appropriate lifestyle choice.lifestyle choices are important in that they affect a person's quality of life.positive lifestyle choices may also play a role in the prevention of illness.that illness prevention serves humanitarian, as well as economic,purposes.prevention of illness can reduce anxiety,stress,pain,and suffering.at the same time,prevention of illness enables the ongoing attainment of life goals,including work,family and education.

Health care has become increasingly focused on health promotion,wellness, and illness prevention. The rapid rise of health care costs has motivated people to seek ways of decreasing the incidence and minimizing the results of illness or disability. The concepts of health promotion,wellness, and illness prevention are closely related and,in practice,overlap to some extent. All are focused on the future;the difference betwwen them involves motivations and goals. Health promotion activities such as routine exercise and good nutrition,helps clients maintain or enhance their present levels of health.Wellness education teaches people how to care for themselves in a healthy way and includes topics such as physical awareness,stress management, and self-responsibility.Wellness has been described as the ongoing and dynamic process of striving to achieve optimum health.Illness prevention activities such as immunization programs protect clients from actual or potential threats to health.

I agree with that,health can be influenced by individual practices,such as poor eating habits and little or no exercise.it can also be affected by physical stressors,such as a poor living environment,exposure air pollutants,and an unsafe environment.hereditary and psychological stressors,such as emotional,intellectual,social,developmental,and spiritual factors,can also influence one's level of health.total health programs are directed at individuals changing their lifestyle by developing habits that can improve their level of health.and as you said the health care has become increasingly focused on health promotion,wellness and illness prevention b'coz health promotion activities motivate people to act positively to reach more stable levels of health.wellness strategies are designed to help persons achieve new understanding and control of their lives.illness prevention activities motivate people to avoid declines in health or functional levels.the goal of a total health program is to improve a client's level of well-being in all dimensions,not just physical health.total health programs are based on the belief that many factors can affect a person's level of health.
