Holistic treatment is the method used to treat the sick from a Holistic health perspective. There are different views as to what this is. In this article I’m going to differentiate the Homeopathic perspective of healing the core issue vs. doing a whole lot of different treatments.
I have come across many Holistic alternative practitioners of various modalities who still take a reductionistic view that things going on in different parts of the body and different spheres of the mind and emotions have to be treated separately but all together by differing treatments for each issue. From their perspective this is Holistic treatment because they are treating the mental, emotional, and physical issues together. From this perspective a person may take massage for tension, detox regiments for heavy metals, dietary changes for weight loss or allergies, supplements for mineral and vitamin deficiencies, meditation to calm the emotions, and counseling for suppressed trauma. Often these treatments are standard for each patient regardless of what their real individual issues are. It’s a kind of shot gun approach to which one or some of these things may bring some relief to the person’s suffering. This approach is often very expensive as each treatment has a price along with the price of vitamins, supplements, or herbal formulas. Though I’m all for people’s freedom to offer or buy what ever they want in health care, it is a fact that the supplement industry has teamed with some Holistic practitioners in order to sell large quantities of supplements for profit, not much different than the relationship between the pharmaceutical companies and doctors.
The Classical Homeopathic perspective is that each individual is unique and that time must be spent to understand each individual Holistically. We must carefully distinguish what is true chronic disease from what is environmental, or personal habit. We must understand how the true chronic imbalance drives the behavior, desires, preferences, and prejudices into manifesting as symptoms, pathology, and outward befallments. Once we have this understanding, we must use the law of similimum and dynamic remedy, to treat the core issue which will result in an atonement in the will and understanding, which will in turn restore order on the behavioral, emotional, and physical level. This is treating and healing the whole person, not merely doing a whole lot of stuff to the person.
This is not to say that you wouldn’t need a better diet, a good massage , or an activity regiment, it is merely pointing out that one should not put the cart before the horse and invest a lot of energy and money in the wrong, unnecessary, or unrelated treatments which will bring no lasting improvement to you as a whole person. Homeopathy is in fact, a total healing modality in and of itself which encompasses guided meditation and counseling which reveals to the awareness of the core mistunement which is at the root of a persons suffering. It is the application of correct remedies to bring about chronic and acute disease resolution. It is spiritual counseling to heal errors of identity causing personal conflicts, as well as life style coaching to mitigate obstacles to a persons healing path. In Homeopathy all of this and more is one systematic method being applied all at once and not separately for different issues.
