Do you ever experience uncomfortable symptoms, such as a headache, without any medical explanation? Maybe you even go to a conventional doctor and they prescribe you with medications, but the headaches come back later or you begin to experience other symptoms. This could be because your physical health is the only component being addressed, rather than looking at how much sleep you are getting, your current stress levels, your self-talk, or your diet.

 

Holistic health and wellness is a comprehensive approach that considers not only your physical symptoms but also your lifestyle, emotional, mental, and spiritual health to help you achieve optimal health and a joyful life.

Key Components of Holistic Health and Wellness

Holistic health and wellness addresses not only the physical part of your health, but also the mental, emotional, spiritual, and lifestyle aspects. A holistic approach to health believes there are many factors that should be considered and addressed when treating underlying symptoms and medical conditions and that each of these factors play a role in our health and happiness. 

 

The key components of holistic health and wellness include: 

 

  • Physical Health: Holistic health examines your physical health, which can include eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and taking care of the body
  • Mental Health: Addresses stress levels and self-talk, as well as other things, to help improve mental health
  • Emotional Health: This looks at the emotions you are experiencing at a given time in life that could be playing a role in your health, whether it’s anxiety, sadness, or other types of feelings
  • Spiritual Health: Holistic health encourages finding purpose in life through a spiritual approach
  • Lifestyle: Holistic health looks at your overall day-to-day patterns, such as how much sleep you are getting each night, what you are eating, alcohol and caffeine consumption, and whether or not you are exercising

Benefits of Holistic Health and Wellness in Medicine

Taking a holistic approach to your health and wellness can provide a wide variety of benefits, including:

 

  • Whole body treatment
  • Improved overall well-being
  • Emotional balance
  • Better sleep
  • Reduced risk of chronic illness
  • Emphasis on prevention
  • Fewer side effects 
  • Improved quality of life
  • Reduced stress
  • Personalized attention

 

Holistic Medicine vs. Conventional Medicine

There are some important differences between holistic medicine and conventional medicine. While holistic medicine believes many different components of our life (physical, emotional, mental, etc.) are interconnected in playing a role in our overall health, conventional medicine only addresses the physical symptoms. Conventional medicine only looks at the physical health of a person and rarely takes into account lifestyle factors or emotional, mental, and spiritual health. 

 

Holistic health takes a proactive approach, treating the root cause of the illness and providing guidance to patients for preventing the illness and symptoms in the future. Conventional medicine tends to be reactive, prescribing medications only after an illness has occurred. There typically isn’t much education or lifestyle changes provided to patients to prevent the illness from coming back or to help them improve their health overall. 

Which Types of Treatments Does Holistic Health Provide?

If you receive care from a holistic health specialist, this most likely will include a highly personalized treatment plan that includes a combination of the below:

 

  • Prebiotic and probiotic supplements
  • Learning about which foods you should avoid (such as processed carbohydrates)
  • Finding foods you like that are full of natural prebiotics and probiotics (including fermented foods, fruits and vegetables, and more)
  • Clinical-grade nutritional dietary supplements 
  • IV Therapy and/or Amino Acid Therapy
  • PRP / Ozone Therapy
  • Combining functional medicine with quantum energy and quantum diagnostics, and turning them into healing energies
  • Specialized blood work to test functional ranges
