holistic health and healing
another way of looking at it is that holistic healing or holistic medicine is the actions we take to promote holistic health. and it is the origin story of all medicine. the balance of energies such as “qi,” or life force, and “shen,” or spirit, is essential in maintaining health. like chinese medicine, the interconnectedness and balance of these internal and external elements is the key to wellness. a renewed interest in holistic health arose in the 1970’s and is growing stronger every year. in the meantime, we can empower ourselves to live a life of holistic healing and wellness. alternative medicine is an area of holistic healing that focuses heavily on the natural aspects of health and healing. complementary medicine is the category of holistic healing techniques that are occasionally accepted within conventional medicine.
