Alternative medicine always attracted me with its philosophy and vibrational approach. It helped me to think about health holistically rather than symptomatically. A holistic point of view is a form of healing that considers the whole person -- body, mind and emotions. The whole body is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have any imbalances (physical or emotional), it can negatively affect their overall health. Illness is a manifestation of the dysfunction of the whole body, not as an isolated event. A human being is a network of complex energy fields that interface with physical systems. Any disturbance in the basic vibration or energetic level is very critical in the development of the disease.
Shift the medical paradigm from a focus on drugs and surgery to an integrative approach to health care is encouraging. Holistic health evaluation is able to determine an early stage of body response to different types of stress stimulus, determine the root cause of any disorder and prevent illness. Medical methods are able to recognize changes in the level of disease and take care of symptoms. The combination of two methods - alternative and medical - is beneficial for the prevention of diseases and chronic care.
Nature provides us with countless herbs, plants, and other natural products full for healthy energy that we can use in the prevention and healing process.

Philosophy of health and wellness
Holistic or naturopathic medicine uses the healing power of nature.
It is based on an alternative approach to individual needs and focuses on a natural remedy to help the body's vital ability to heal and keep homeostatic balance.
Complementary medicine helps to treat not only the physical and biochemical manifestations of illness, but also the nutritional, emotional, social, and spiritual context in which the illness arises.
The holistic practitioner looks at the whole person when making treatment judgments.
