HOLISTIC HEALTH
               




                      Holistic Health is an approach to life, which takes the whole individual into consideration and explores how he or she interacts with the environment, rather than focusing on the illness or specific parts of the body. Holistic Health strongly emphasizes the connection between the mind and body with a primary goal of achieving maximum well-being, where everything is functioning at the highest level possible. Therefore, achieving holistic health is an ongoing process. As a way of life, it includes a commitment to move toward overall wellness regardless of one’s current health status. An individual can strive toward improving his or her level of well-being, even when there are temporary impediments in life.

            A Holistic approach to therapy goes beyond just eliminating the presenting symptom; rather, it considers a symptom a message that something needs attention, thus, using the presenting symptom as a guide to look below the surface for the root cause. With a Holistic approach to Health, people can enjoy the liveliness and well-being resulting from positive lifestyle changes, further motivating them to continue the process throughout their lives. 

At the Holistic Health Center for Personal Growth & Healing, we integrate several factors such as diet and weight management, exercise, vitamin supplements and sleep cycle, etc, into our treatment plan for every individual’s overall well-being, as we strongly believe in the mind-body connection. We further emphasize that a healthy body aids in regulating emotions, diminishing symptoms of anxiety and depression, strengthening cognition, and improving an overall state of wellness.
