Health & Healing
Holistic healthcare seeks optimal integration of body, mind, emotions and spirit. The care giver recognizes that each person is unique and treats the patient as a whole by developing a partnership with the patient, while emphasizing personal responsibility and prevention. Holistic medicine is a system of interaction and growth which focuses on root causes rather than treating symptoms, with an emphasis on using minimally invasive, natural approaches to healing.
