The practice of holistic medicine

Holistic medicine is the system of health care that incorporates the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social components of health. Holistic medicine encompasses the whole person and focuses on personal effort for achieving optimum health and well-being.

Often, holistic medicine is referred to as alternative medicine, natural healing or complementary medicine. No matter what it's called, holistic medicine is a style of health care that is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical practice of healing that incorporates techniques such as herbalism, acupuncture, homeopathy, massage and many others.

Holistic healing fundamentals include:

  • Proper diet and nutrition
  • Relaxation and stress relief
  • Inner healing and transformation
  • Avoidance unhealthy substances
  • Adequate rest
  • Exercise
  • Good self-image
  • Creativeness
  • Healing and spiritual connection

The success of holistic healing is dependant upon direct treatment by a practitioner in conjunction with self-treatment. It's also important to follow the holistic healing fundamentals and view healthy living as a life-long quest.

Focusing on the responsibility and education of the individual, holistic medicine can be practiced through personal effort so one can achieve balance, optimum health and well-being.
