Holistic health is a term that is increasingly used to refer to the concept of integral health.
The term holistic comes from the Greek ‘holos’, which means ‘everything, whole, total, complete’, and is often used as a synonymous of integral.
Holistic health considers people as a whole, caring for all their dimensions: physical, intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual and religious. The person is considered as a complete being in relation to the world around them.
Holistic health focuses on well-being instead of illness.
We are increasingly aware that health affects the whole person, and at the same time there are an increasing number of health professionals that believe that humanizing health generates holistic health.
The purpose of this approach to health is to achieve an optimal quality of life through an active and healthy lifestyle. Whenever possible, the beneficial effects of holistic therapies are multiplied in the peace and quiet of nature.
