The World Health Organization defines health as being: “… more than simply the absence of illness. It is the active state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being.” – This is a wonderfully clear description of holistic medicine. Instead, the system as a whole determines in an important way in which the parts behave. Similarly our bodies are a collection of complex tissues, cells, organs and body systems. So with regard to poor health we should not be viewed as just the sum of our symptoms. The underlying root causes of an ailment must be addressed for complete healing to take place.
