In a medical setting, holistic therapy is when conditions of mental, physical, and emotional health are addressed while taking into consideration social and economical issues. The difference between traditional therapy and holistic therapy is that in traditional therapy only the psychological, behavioral patterns and ramifications are observed and treated. In holistic therapy, the person’s entire being is looked at and treated at a 360-degree angle.
Holistic medicine is used all across the world and incorporates many fundamentals of western medicine that has shown positive results in treating an array of medical issues. Holistic therapy at Passages Addiction Treatment Centers focuses on treating and healing the underlying conditions causing a person to use and abuse drugs and alcohol. Deep-rooted issues are often times dug up from past trauma that a person has been carrying around for many years and has yet to realize or heal from. When these underlying conditions are not treated, it is likely that the individual will relapse or have a very difficult time changing the course of their behavior and cravings.
Principles of Holistic Medicine
- Every individual person has natural healing powers
- A patient is a person, not a disease
- Healing takes a team approach involving the patient and doctor in which they work together to address all aspects of a person’s life through a variety of non-traditional treatment methods
- Treatment consists of fixing the cause of the condition, not just alleviating the symptoms
