The Word 'Holistic' means treating the patient as a Whole, rather than treating the symptoms, treating the human being who has symptoms.
BODY - MIND - SOUL
The Expression Body-Mind-Soul has become the phrase most commonly used in the natural medicines to describe the different levels of Human being.
Body is the least ambiguous of the three levels. When most people think about their health, they almost exclusively think about their physical health. Acupuncture works on various levels of Human Being (BODY-MIND-SOUL)
The mind is the cognitive faculty and the ability to think. Someone call 'Monkey Mind' because it is constantly jumping around. Acupuncturist acknowledges the supreme importance of the brain in the functioning of the mind, they also consider the mind to be an aspect of the person's Qi.
The Word SOUL encompasses many other aspects of being. When we wake up and experience the joy of seeing a beautiful day dawning, it is our soul that is touched by that experience.
