Marketing: Holistic medicine is a term implying that "other" practitioners focus on one aspect of health while holistic people deal with the body as a whole. It turns out to be a front in many cases for the sale of supplements. It also has been co-opted by non-medical people like naturopaths who indicate that their approach is holistic, not like the narrowness of conventional M.D.S.
