Holistic Medicine Vs Modern Medicine - What's the difference?

Holistic medicine is a more complete and balanced approach to healthcare. It is based on the principle that the human body is a self-healing organism, and that illness may result from any failure of this self-healing process. Some holistic practitioners may also identify as “alternative” or “complementary” care providers. These terms can be confusing because they have been used to describe various types of therapy and medicine—not just holistic approaches. This article explains what holistic medicine is, how it differs from modern medicine, and how each may be helpful for different patients in different situations.
