Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person -- body, mind, spirit, and emotions -- in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health -- the primary goal of holistic medicine practice -- by gaining proper balance in life.
Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health.
All people have innate healing powers.
The patient is a person, not a disease.
Healing takes a team approach involving the patient and practicioner, and addresses all aspects of a person's life using a variety of homeopathic treatments.
Treatment involves fixing the cause of the condition, not just alleviating the symptoms.
