WHAT IS HOLISTIC HEALTH AND MEDICINE?
Holistic Health is a state of well-being. Traditional medicine in today’s world is excess drugs, surgery and costs. Doctors make their diagnosis to know when serious illness requires surgery or drugs to remain safe and healthy. Unfortunately patients, doctors, and big pharma don’t always look at the total picture, especially in these chronic illnesses, patients have the greatest opportunity and responsibility to learn different options and make their own choices.
Dissatisfaction with the medical profession has helped to spawn a new movement – holistic health and medicine. Holistic health is when the mind and body work together. Science has somehow suggested that mind and body are completely independent. All evidence shows different..THE MIND AND BODY ARE COMPLETELY INTERDEPENDENT. Every factor that alters the body, influences the mind. Every thought is reflected in some kind of body activity. Emotions are a classic example – expressions of body and mind interaction.
Another major change in the medical profession is specialization and tranquillization. This has practically eliminated family practice, which has lead to impersonation.
Tranquilizers are the number one and two best selling prescriptions in the world, suppressing the symptoms but not dealing with the causes.
During the same time life styles have drastically changed. The extending family has disappeared. The uprooting of family’s, the average family moves every three years, has left an emotional void.
The woman’s movement has made a major contribution to social change. Children are being raised by disinterested people.
All of these changes leads to uncertainty, anxiety, and frustration, thus the demand for tranquilizers.
Holistic health and holistic medicine can help fill this void.
Holistic health is a state of well being in which an individuals body, mind, emotions and spirit are all in tune with the natural, cosmic and social environment.
Holistic medicine is health care that includes the patients personal responsibility and good with “all” involved for an optimal attainment of body, mind, emotions and spirit.
HOLISTIC HEALTH IS A STATE OF WELL BEING. This state is lost through poor habits and a stress full life style, excess sugar,nicotine, drugs,alcohol, pollution, physical activity, emotions, feelings, and much more. Eventually such distress lead to loss of health, then illness.
