Fundamental Elements of Health

Below is a list of the Fundamental Elements of Health, as outlined by Dr. Douglas Graham, in his book, The 80/10/10 Diet.

As per Dr. Douglas Graham, there is no official order or ranking as to which elements are most important for health, but he states tha tthe first ten on the list are essential for even a moderate level of true health. 


1) Clean, fresh air

2) Pure water

3) Foods for which we are biologically designed

4) Sufficient sleep 

5) Rest and relaxation 

6) Vigorous activity 

7) Emotional poise and stability

8) Sunshine and natural light

9) Comfortable temperature

10) Peace, harmony, serenity, and tranquility

11) Human touch 

12) Thought, cogitation, and meditation

13) Friendships and companionship 

14) Gregariousness (social relationships, community) 

15) Love and appreciation 

16) Play and recreation 

17) Pleasant environment

80-10-10 is my favorite health book of all time. 

It's an absolutely great read, in which you are guaranteed to learn a few things. 

I would recommend that you purchase it either at Douglas Graham's own website at foodnsport or you can buy it on  amazon
