A holistic approach is a form of treatment that looks at all aspects of health and wellness. Seeking to acquire ideal health for the entire body, holistic health definition would include a balanced approach of healing the mind, body, and spirit using both conventional and alternative treatment techniques.
This holistic approach to healing focuses on preventative medicine, which means taking care of our physical, mental, and spiritual wellness before getting sick. On the other hand, standard medication concentrates on treatment after a person becomes ill.
The holistic health definition can be rather broad, where one person’s definition may be different from another’s. As an outcome, not everybody will agree on what the definition of holistic health is, but here, the most popular forms of holistic healing are given.
When it concerns holistic health, there are several basic concepts that are widely followed and practiced. By keeping the health of these important elements now, we decrease the risk of becoming ill later.
• Optimal health: This principle concentrates on being the best we can be by maintaining life essential elements:
• The power of love: It has known since the beginning of time that love is a powerful healer. As an outcome, a person is to be dealt with kindness and dignity.
• The power of prevention: Instead of just treating the symptom, holistic health places focus on preventing disease and illness. This is achieved by raising awareness of things (and situations) that may be harmful to a person’s health.
• Instinctive ability to heal: The body has an innate ability to heal its mind, body, and spirit from within. The objective is to help a person use these inherent capabilities and let the healing process begin.
• Unique, specific treatment: Many feel traditional medicine uses a “cookie-cutter” mindset to deal with a health problem, if a person exhibits certain symptoms, they are simply given medicine to deal with those symptoms. On the other hand, holistic medicine believes we are all different, and seeks to discover approaches that are best for that particular person, as opposed to what’s best for the illness.
• Live and learn: For practitioners of holistic medicine, life itself provides many learning opportunities. Birth, death, happiness, grief, appetite, discomfort, and many other experiences can be learned from, and offer clues on how to deal with (and possibly prevent) many health issues.
• Lead by example: Instead of simply discussing the benefits of holistic health, the objective is to show others by applying the principles themselves and motivating others to do the exact same.
The terms “holistic” and “homeopathic” are utilized frequently these days. Many people think the words are interchangeable, but do you know they each have their unique characteristics?
Holistic medicine: Holistic medicine will use a variety of treatment options and therapies to heal an individual. As discussed before, holistic medication sees the person as a whole, looking at their physical, mental, and spiritual health before making a diagnosis or devising a strategy.
With holistic treatments, the primary goal is to focus on prevention and achieving balance. This is accomplished by getting the proper nutrients the body needs, as well as limiting our exposure to the various chemicals and toxins that we come across daily.
Eventually, holistic treatments for one ailment could indirectly improve our health in other areas, due to its thorough approach to strengthening the body overall as a whole.
Homeopathy: Homeopathic solutions focus on treating symptoms. This is similar to the modern, conventional forms of treatment you get when going to the doctor. However, there’s one difference between the two: homeopathy focuses exclusively on natural solutions to relieve symptoms.
These natural treatments include environment-friendly plant and mineral sources that aren’t tested on animals. They are considered safe for everybody, consisting of kids and expectant mothers. Since it concentrates on symptoms, many will look for holistic treatments for a variety of ailments, including the following:
• Sore throats
• Autoimmune conditions
• Ear infections
Homeopathic products are low-cost, easily available, and can be purchased at supermarket, online, organic food stores, etc.
While some individuals are skeptical of homeopathic treatments, many research studies have shown their benefits.
For example, a research study of homeopathic treatments on people with chronic periodontitis (CP) and Diabetes mellitus type 2 was conducted on individuals in between 32 and 70 years old. Researchers found that homeopathy treatments reduced mean glucose and glycated hemoglobin after 6 and 12 months. The findings also show that homeopathy non-surgical gum treatment may further improve health conditions, consisting of glycemic control in DMII patients with CP.
While focusing on the symptoms might be good in some cases, making an effort to keep the body free of illness in the first place is important as well. A healthy body immune system is the first line of defense against sickness. Stress, pollution, bad consuming routines, absence of exercise, and a host of other aspects can weaken the immune system, which can increase our susceptibility of becoming ill.
Holistic concepts force us to be mindful of potential disease-causing culprits. Homeopathic treatments use more secure, gentler treatment options, minus the harmful side effects lots of traditional medications might have. When used together, they make a powerful 1-2 punch.
Health is our essential possession. We can’t take health for granted and must do everything we can to maintain it. Don’t wait until you’re ill to start taking better care of yourself. Give holistic medication a try. Your body will thank you!

Mindset, past and present traumas, and limiting belief systems are some of the biggest barriers to healing, so much in fact that gene expression and biological ‘engines’ of the human body can change for the worse because of it.
In the many years, we have been working in the field of holistic medicine, helping people who have tried everything else with no success or little success, we have discovered how great of an impact our thoughts, beliefs, and past and present trauma, and chronic stress can be to the human body, mind, and spirit.
The rate of recovery and healing for those who place emphasis on creating new neurological pathways to imprint new and healthy mindsets and belief systems in how they perceive themselves and the world around them is greatly improved when the psychological aspect of mindset and integration of mind, body, the spirit is addressed through repatterning of the mind and body neurology.
By removing barriers discovered from traumas, mindset, and conscious/unconscious patterns that are not congruent for healing, health, and vitality, you set yourself up for the best outcomes in your healing journey. Healing only occurs when the physical, emotional, and mental barriers to healing are removed.
Therefore we incorporate mind, body, spirit integration work into our programs and in doing so, we see exponential increases in positive outcomes with our clients. We have put together the most comprehensive ‘whole person’ approach in the world, and this is why our results are so successful.

Here are some of the modalities our Emotional Processing, Stress Release, & Neurological Repatterning coaches use for brain and body repatterning:
Breathwork is more than just a simple exercise of intentional breathing. Specialized breathwork techniques are used to facilitate major transformation and healing by encompassing a wide range of therapeutic practices that are extremely powerful in providing immediate relief for pulling people out of fight or flight (the amygdala hijack we teach about in Part 2 of our Mastering Trauma Masterclass).
This vagus nerve activation through breath work activates the rest/digest (parasympathetic nervous system), stimulates healing, reduces blood pressure, reduces the cortisol stress response, regulates hormone and blood glucose activity, and heart rate variability (the biological stress response). It rewires the body for self-regulation of the nervous system in a manner that optimizes the body and creates resilience in times of stress.
Yoga breath therapy allows you to disconnect from the mind chatter, mind racing, and negative self-talk and reconnect with your body your energy. From this elevated state of awareness, you are able to facilitate healing, growth, and expansion. And if you are looking for some expansion of your body/mind/spirit awareness, then this type of breathwork can be nourishing and can facilitate the next layer of peace, love, gratitude, connection, clarity, and insights.
In the many years, we have been working in the field of holistic medicine, helping people who have tried everything else with no success or little success, we have discovered how great of a damaging impact our thoughts, beliefs, and past and present trauma, and chronic stress (the fight or flight response) can be to the human body, mind, and spirit.

Healing only occurs when the physical, emotional, and mental barriers to healing are removed.
