What is Holistic Medicine Practice?
The premise of all holistic medical practice is a faith in the personal connections between the mind, the body, and the individuals conduct. It is a system of health care that works towards optimal health which includes the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of ones health. Simply, when treating, holistic medicine practitioners considers the whole person, not just the ailment.
Like a lot of individuals, I too was very skeptical about holistic medicine. Many of us grew up on western medicine and that was all we knew. In 2005, a friend introduced me to the concept of natural medicine. Personally, I’ll try just about anything once to see if I like it or not. I began my research into holistic medicine; reading books, magazines, just about anything that pertained to holistic medicine and medicinal herbs. I loved what I was reading . . . I’m still learning.
The holistic approach may not be for everyone; but, it does not hurt to keep an open mind. Take the journey.
