dc.description.abstractAbstract Today, good health is more than just keeping illness away. It’s also about experiencing good quality of life and well-being. Modern clinical medicine alone cannot reach WHO’s health definition from 1946 which states that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. A new discipline inside the field of health prevention, “health promotion”, has developed during the last 20 years with the aim to promote good health. In the late 1970s, professor in sociology Aaron Antonovsky, developed the theory of salutogenesis, “the origin of health”, which emphasizes the importance of promoting good heath next to preventing and treating illness. In another part of the world, in the middle of the 1980s on the Norwegian Lofoten islands, dr.med. Gunnar Tellnes intuitively came to realize that the interplay between Nature, Culture and Health could provide a necessary complement to clinical medicine focusing on diseases, in the promotion of good health. The Nature-Culture-Health concept was developed on the basis of this intuition. This thesis studies the health promoting potentials of the Nature-Culture-Health concept by looking into its foundation in the theory of salutogenesis. The Nature-Culture-Health concept is shown to interact with the theory of salutogenesis in many ways : - as a basic philosophy that humans in contact with nature and culture can obtain a better understanding og their life and a sense of coherence with the world surrounding them - as an inclusive concept where everyone, independently of health status, can move in an health promoting direction - as Nature-Culture-Health activities that motivates individual ressource search and developp coping strategies. The Nature-Culture-Health concept has built a bridge between the theory of salutogenesis and activities that show positive health promoting effects. High expectations toward individual productivity and efficiency in the modern society has led to an increase in new lifestylediseases as depressiv moods, chronic muskel pain and chronic fatigue syndrome. These are typical diffuse conditions which are time demanding, difficult to threat and where Nature-Culture-health activities has shown good effects. Thus, the author sees an important potential gain by continuing to develop this work in collaboration and as a supplement to the already well established clinical and disease orientated medical institutions.nor
