Holistic health is a way of promoting optimal health and the teaching of ways to treat disease while also helping to prevent it. It helps to provide patients with the knowledge of the disease and its cause, and give them the means to make changes in their lifestyle, which will help to promote good health. In most systems of western medicine or allopathic medicine, doctors address the symptoms and very rarely the root cause.
The main drawback of the practice of holistic health is that it does take time. The treatment will start with a look at the past medical history; ask detailed questions about your current lifestyle and try to find the reasons for whatever complaint you have.
