Subject: I need a word
Question: I have been searching for a word, or even a short phrase that
encompasses the entirety of human health, wellness, and well-being.
More so the concept of an individual who is actively pursuing a
state of complete and utter health/wellness. I have discovered a
word that I feel encompasses this pretty well, only in antonym:

valetudinarian

I would be satisfied even with foreign words or phrases, but alas I
have not come up with a single satisfactory solution.

Advice is relished.
