Abstract. Health and illness are to be understood as two sides of the same coin. The human being is neither healthy nor sick, rather there is a constant effort for a balance, only then can one speak of an approach to health. In this context, symptoms take on an informative character and indicate longings (needs) that have not been fulfilled.
