Holistic Health and the Process of Recovery

Pascal Scoles

Abstract
An integrated, holistic concept of comprehensive recovery healthcare has evolved from studying the complex interaction of genetic, emotional, spiritual, physical, dietary, mental, and environmental life issues [1]. Long-term trauma recovery management involves one’s body, mind, and spiritual balance characterized by: (1) positive emotions, (2) constructive thoughts, and (3) responsible actions. Complete transformation emphasizes the person's physical, emotional, social, and spiritual integration. Various therapies, which address the body’s energy fields, ensure a more significant opportunity for sustained health. Eastern practices such as massage, meditation, Asian acupressure methods, and acupuncture have been beneficial in reducing stress, tension, and anxiety. Bodywork activities such as Therapeutic Touch, Reiki Therapy, and Cranio-Sacral Therapy can reduce the emotional stress of daily life problems. The cornerstone to holistic health assumes whole foods, medicinal herbs, and nutritional supplements enhance diet, build physical balance, and nourish body tissues.

The movement towards a person's physical, emotional, social, and spiritual integration and a responsible lifestyle is a desire of all recovering individuals. Holistic health is always reflected in a person's attempt to take control over their body, mind, and spirit. This integrated concept of comprehensive health arises from a complex interaction of genetic, emotional, spiritual, physical, dietary, mental, and environmental life issues. Long-term trauma recovery management involves a body, mind, and spiritual balance characterized by positive emotion, constructive thoughts, and responsible actions. Total transformation emphasizes the whole person's physical, emotional, social, and spiritual integration [1].
