Holistic Health 2023

As winter approaches and we look out for chills and health niggles, it’s a good time to remember the interconnectedness of life, including the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of health.

healthy juices all year roundRather than focusing solely on the symptoms of a particular illness or ailment, holistic health takes into account the whole person, and seeks to address underlying causes of health issues through a combination of lifestyle changes, natural remedies including homeopathic and, where appropriate, traditional medicine.

A holistic health approach suggests that physical symptoms may have emotional or mental roots, and that stress of all types can manifest physically. During these unsettling times, where ‘whole world’ issues seem to edge closer and closer to our daily lives, it pays us to take a broad view of our health, and work to identify and treat the underlying causes of symptoms, rather than just treating the symptoms themselves.

My view of holistic health is the emphasis on natural remedies and lifestyle changes. Such changes can include food choices, exercise routines, stress-management techniques, and natural remedies like homeopathy, herbs and supplements to address health issues. By focusing on natural, non-invasive treatments, holistic health seeks to support the body’s own natural healing mechanisms and promote long-term wellness.

For example, holistic health practitioners may offer counseling, meditation or other techniques to help individuals manage stress, anxiety, and other emotional issues that can impact overall health. In all of this, we look to achieve a sense of balance and harmony in all aspects of our lives.

By addressing all aspects of our personal health, and working to achieve balance in as many areas of life as possible, we hope to achieve optimal health and well-being through all seasons – and all years.
