Integrative Holistic Health
Holistic Health or Whole person health refers to helping individuals improve and restore their health in multiple interconnected domains—biological, behavioural, social, environmental—rather than just treating disease or illness. Research on whole person health includes expanding the understanding of the connections between these various aspects of health, including connections between organs and body systems. Integrative health emphasizes the application of two or more multimodal interventions such as functional medicine, lifestyle changes, physical rehabilitation, psychotherapy and complementary health approaches in treating the whole person rather than, for example, one organ system.
