Holistic medicine is a system of alternate medicine. It visualizes the body as a whole and views body as more than the sum of the parts. It tries to attain a perfect harmony by fostering a cooperative relationship among all those involved, leading towards optimal attainment of the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of health.|
Holistic Health is a total approach to life both in physical and spiritual terms. It does not focus on the specific illness or parts of the body suffering from illness, but rather focuses on the whole person and takes in to account how he or she interacts
with his or her environment. Holistic health takes a broader spectrum of mind, body, and spirit.. It assumes that body has a natural tendency toward equilibrium, or homeostasis the maintenance of which is the key to good health. The goal of holistic healing is to achieve maximum body function, where individual body parts are functioning the very best that is possible by themselves. It is no longer the sole responsibility of the healer to bring good health; put puts great responsibilities on the patient to achieve the maximum possible health and well-being.
