Healthy women show signs of harmony, balance, happiness and holistic well-being. The conventional  medicine view of good health is an absence of any signs of obvious illness. In contrast, the natural holistic view of good health views well-being in terms of the optimum balance of mind, body and spirit. In the holistic model of health the right time to seek help is at the first signs of unusual feelings or observations about one's self. These are often ignored yet are warning signs of imbalance and potential health problems to follow. These can range from lack of energy, interrupted sleeping patterns, skin, weight and emotional problems to difficulties with mobility, digestion, circulation and fertility.
