Health in French

You never know when you’ll need to talk about your health in French, so it’s best to be prepared. After today’s French language lesson with audio you’ll be able to say if you’re not feeling well, and recognize the French words for a health shop, natural medicine and more.
But it’s not always about medical French…
Ever heard French people saying santé when they raise their glasses for a toast and wondered what it meant? It’s the expression for cheers in French!

Talking about Health in French

En bonne santé
In good health
En mauvaise santé
In poor health
Je me sens bien aujourd’hui !
I feel good today!
Je me sens mal !
I am not feeling well!
La médecine naturelle

Les aliments naturels

And the word for health in the following well-known phrase is translated as “le meilleur” which means literally “the best”!

Pour le meilleur et pour le pire !
In sickness and in health!
