The practice of holistic medicine considers conventional and alternative therapies to prevent and treat disease. Most importantly, it emphasizes the promotion of optimal and healthy daily life. The holistic health condition is often defined as the unimpeded flow of life giving energy through body, mind, and spirit.

Holistic medicine encompasses safe methods of diagnosis and treatment. It includes the analysis of physical health, nutrition, environment, emotional, and spiritual lifestyles. Holistic medicine also focuses on patient education in the healing process.

Principles of Holistic Practices

  • Holistic physicians embrace safe, effective methods in diagnosing and treatment. This includes lifestyle education and self-care.
  • Finding for the underlying cause of disease is the goal rather than treating the symptoms alone.
  • Holistic Practices means establishing what kind of patient has what kind of disease as well as establishing what kind of disease a patient has.
  • Prevention is better than treatment and is more cost-effective. This approach triggers the patient’s own natural healing capabilities.
  • Illness and symptom is seen as a manifestation of a dysfunction of the person, not as a single event.
  • The ideal physician-patient partnership looks at the needs, desires, awareness, and insight of the patient and the physician.
  • Holistic Practices encourage patients to evoke the healing power of emotion and effort.  And how to eliminate the toxic results of negative emotion. Including hostility, shame, greed, and depression.
  • The Holistic approach promotes unconditional love as life’s most powerful medicine.
  • Optimal health is more than the absence of sickness. It is the self-aware pursuit of physical, environmental, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
