Address whole person
Holistic practitioners treat the whole person: mind, body & spirit in the context of their environment.
They search for the underlying causes of illness, and pay attention to the role of diet
, lifestyle and mind-body interactions. They tend to use nutrition
, herbs and other natural therapies in conjunction with standard treatments. See http://www.Holisticmedicine.Org/content.Asp?Pl=2&contentid=2.
