If somebody says to me, "How are you?", my answer is usually, "Fine, thank you, and you?"
Is it natural to say, "Very good." instead of "Fine" in usual conversation?
"How are you?" and "I am good." do not usually refer to your health. But if the person asking "How are you?" knows that you are or were sick, they could be mostly inquiring about your health.
Also "I am good.", in this context, does not mean I am a good person.
