A good Holistic Health Care system is one that is comprehensive and focuses on all aspects of life: physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and economic. Sometimes back pain isn’t just from a previous illness or bad posture. It could be related to diet or emotional reasons. Common colds aren’t always the result of a bug being passed around. It could have been caused due to stress or some other ailment that has yet to show itself. Our bodies send us messages through pain, and it’s not always what it first seems.
According to Suzan Walter, co-founder and president of the American Holistic Health Association, “With Holistic Health people accept responsibility for their own level of well-being, and everyday choices are used to take charge of one’s own health.” In order for this to be successful people need to incorporate three healthy habits in their daily life.
1. Good Eating Habits: Eating right isn’t only changing your diet around to include more fruits and vegetables, but it includes sleeping correctly. According to HealthyLiving.com adults who don’t get enough sleep produce more ghrelin, “a hormone that promotes hunger”. The less you sleep, the hungrier you are throughout the day, forcing you to eat badly, because what sleep-deprived bodies crave are carbs to stay awake.
2. Active Lifestyle: As any good Masseuse or Chiropractor will tell you, there’s only so much a good session can do for you without the proper care at home. A quick jog around the neighborhood or a sun salutation routine in the morning will help your regular chiropractic/massage sessions to better your body both psychically and emotionally.
3. Doctors to Trust: The biggest factor in a healthy lifestyle is acknowledging that we can’t do this alone. We need professionals who understand that our life isn’t just the immediate physical pain we feel, but other contributing factors. People we trust to help us feel better and to get us motivated in having a better lifestyle is key.
