Holism as a general philosophy is the theory that the parts of a whole cannot survive independently. Holism in the psychology and medical world sees a person as one unified whole rather than as a creation of small parts or systems put together. This is important because this philosophy doesn’t just say that the whole is a sum of its parts; it says that the whole is more than its parts, signifying that it’s crucial to see the wholeness to achieve our greatest health and potential. Holistic medicine will look at all aspects of your health, not just your physical health. A holistic perspective can help us fully understand our behaviors, conditions, responses and motivations. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
