Both mental and physical health is on the rise due to the lifestyle people live, the food we are consuming and the environments people are exposed to. In today’s world we are being controlled by social media; food addictions and peer pressure and our mental and physical health are deteriorating .
Holistic healing is rapidly gaining popularity as people become familiar with the idea that maintaining health involves balance of the body, mind, spirit and emotions. Holistic healers look at the whole of a person when assessing their health needs and will look at diet, physical movement, mental and emotional strain to pinpoint an underlying cause for symptoms that have presented themselves. The aim is not only to heal the ailment the patient has presented, but also seek out the underlying cause and promote overall well being.
