DOCTOR OF HOLISTIC MEDICINE (H.M.D. )
Principles of Holistic Medicine
Holistic medicine is also based on the belief that unconditional love and support is the most powerful healer and a person is ultimately responsible for his or her own health and well- being. Other principles of holistic medicine include the following:
- 1- All people have innate healing powers.
- 2- The patient is a person, not a disease.
- 3- Healing takes a team approach involving the patient and doctor, and addresses all aspects of a person's life using a variety of health care practices.
- 4- Treatment involves fixing the cause of the condition, not just alleviating the symptoms.
