What Is Holistic Health?

Webster's Third International Dictionary defines "holistic" as "emphasizing the organic or function relation between parts and wholes, rather than atomistic approach." In relation to health this means recognizing that all disease processes involve the whole person. Within the physical dimension, disease in one system of the body effects the other systems. Similarly, imbalance in any one dimension of existence-physical, mental, spiritual or social-affects the other dimensions. "This is Wholism: living each moment and experience to the hilt, with full mind awareness, spiritual awareness; letting oneself be washed and cleansed by the pure stream of thankfulness and appreciation" ( Frank Atkinson). Health is balance of all aspects of your being-physical, mental, social and spiritual. When it comes to balancing your own health, you always let someone else do it. You can manage and balance your own household, you do fine in your own business, you manage and balance your your checkbook, but when it comes to balancing your health, you quit. Why? Because you shy away from the work it takes to balance your body chemistry. When it comes to your own thinking and emotions you quit and go to a psychiatrist, counselor, your minister, your friends, the card reader, the palm reader, the tea leaf reader or the crystal ball gazer when you yourself could do a much better job. Of course, you need tools to do so and that's my purpose on yahoo answer(alt med) to help give you reliable Info so you will have those tools to help. The daring is yours, the work is yours, the determination is yours, but God is with those who help themselves and the Lord is with you. What's your purpose?
