Hello, and welcome to the first of what I hope will be many posts on my “New and improved” page! After years of fighting with various cookie cutter sites promising much (and delivering little), I decided to step out of their constraints and just throw myself all out there.
Why the “W”?
The term holistic is defined as “characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.” When particularly referring to medicine, it is defined as “characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the physical symptoms of a disease.”
With definitions such as these, why would I not spell the word with a w to indicate the inclusion of the whole being – body, mind and spirit. I intend my posts to include as much wholistic material as possible, without the constraints of sites for which I previously posted.
I pray you find the information helpful and educational. Please remember it is no substitute for medical consult, but merely the distribution of information to enlighten those interested to options so s/he may make the best possible decisions, along with the medical team s/he may employ, so the modalities may compliment each other in the most fitting way possible for each individual.
With that, blessings to you all…
