    Hey there!
    I would like to know the exact meaning of this expression.
    A friend of mine sent me an e.mail using this expression twice.
    1.I seem OK, health wise and I plan to be in Vermont 19-23 August
    2.I am happy you are now well again, health wise.
    Please any help will be appreciate it.

    Not a teacher!


    He only means your or his health. No other affair.

    1. He thinks his health is OK. Has he had an accident??
    2. He is happy you have recovered from illness. You must have been ill.

    And no I leave the field to the experts

    Re: health wise

    As regards health. Referring to the health.

    "Healthwise, I am doing just fine." or "Healthwise, he (/she/they) have recently had many problems."

    Regards.

    Just thought I'd mention that I am one of those language Luddites who hate "-wise".
