Definition of Holistic Health - dealing with the non-physical aspects
by Webmaster, All4NaturalHealth.com
Natural Health Principle No. 6
One definition of holistic health is "an approach that considers the 'whole person' including mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, social and environmental factors".
It thus covers the non-physical aspects of a person's health and wellbeing.
When a person is undergoing a lot of stress, depressed, or undergoing serious emotional trauma, physical disease can be manifested. This is because when one's emotional and mental outlook is poor, the body's immune system is suppressed.
Further, negative thoughts and feelings also produce many toxins in the body.
It is a well-proven and documented fact that stress and poor emotional and mental states contribute to the development of disease, while strong and positive outlooks are critical in the recovery from disease.
Thus, in dealing with chronic and degenerative conditions, especially life-threatening ones, it is critical to take into account the definition of holistic health and address the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a person in a comprehensive and integrated manner.
This can be done via ways such as counseling, prayer, meditation, mental visualization, positive affirmation, etc. Without dealing with these issues, it is difficult for true and total healing to take place.
Once again, I repeat that natural holistic healing is critical - nothing works on its own, and it's difficult to be well physically when one has a negative mental outlook or unresolved emotional issues, for what we think and feel can cause disease.
It is also worthwhile repeating again that, in natural health, the person is treated, NOT the disease per se.
