What is it?
Holistic Health is actually an approach to life. Rather than focusing on illness or specific parts of the body, this ancient approach to health considers the whole person and how he or she interacts with his or her environment. It emphasizes the connection of mind, body and spirit.
Holism is the theory that the parts of any whole cannot exist and cannot be understood except in their relation to the whole; “holism holds that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”; that parts of a whole are in intimate interconnection, such that they cannot exist or be understood independently of the whole. The principles of holism have been around since the time of Hippocrates, 2500 years ago and even earlier than the eastern healing traditions of Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine.
This Holistic theory is applicable to the 4 interrelated dimensional parts:
These parts of a human being work cohesively together in order to facilitate homeostatic, well-being for optimal health.
