The word health means different things to different people, depending on the situation.

If somebody says “I was worried about my husband’s health when he climbed Mt. Everest”, it is clear that the woman is referring to her husband’s physical health, possibly his heart, skin (frostbite) and risk of developing hypothermia (when the body’s temperature drops too low.

Health-az: What Behind

On the other hand, if you hear the phrase “With all these deadlines, presentations and working weekends, I wonder what the effect will be on her health,”

most likely the word “health” refers more to mental health than physical health (although the two are often linked).

The words “health” or “healthy” can also be used in non-medical contexts. For example “A healthy economy needs an ideal GDP growth rate that is sustainable, one that remains in the expansion phase of the business cycle as long as possible.”

The English word “health” comes from the Old English word hale, meaning “wholeness, being whole, sound or well,”.

Hale comes from the Proto-Indo-European root kailo, meaning “whole, uninjured, of good omen”. Kailo comes from the Proto-Germanic root khalbas, meaning “something divided”.
