Holistic health

Holistic health is a concept that all potential contributing factors which may affect a person’s well-being are taken into consideration when assessing a person’s overall health.[1]

Holistic health in traditional medical practice upholds that all aspects of people’s needs, physical, social, and mental, should be taken into account and seen as a whole. As defined above, the holistic view on treatment is widely accepted in medicine.[2]

In alternative medicine, it is believed that the spiritual aspect should also be taken into account when assessing a person’s overall well-being.[3]The spiritual aspect is not associated with any religious ideology but rather, refers to the essence or “core self” of a person. [4]
