HOLISTIC THERAPIES - ABOUT
he current of thought of holism can be applied to many disciplines: politics, economics, physics, anthropology, philosophy, psychology and medicine. In the latter area, the term "holistic" has become very fashionable, albeit with a rather vague meaning. The term holism comes from the Greek όλος, olos, which stands for "totality". Holism in medicine represents a state of "global" health, the union of mind, body, environment and society. The search for health is oriented to the person and not to the disease, to the cause and not to the symptom, to the system and not to the organ, to the rebalancing instead of to the cure, stimulating the natural self-healing process of the body.
But what is holistic medicine and what is it characterized by? A holistic approach should not be seen as exclusive and far from the intervention methods of traditional or "scientific" medicine. First of all, because the holistic approach is not finely therapeutic, that is, it is not limited to healing. There is also an important dimension of prevention and an equally important component of conservation and improvement of health status.
