What​ ​is​ ​“Holistic”​ ​Health?


The​ ​term​ ​“holistic”​ ​is​ ​often​ ​used​ ​to​ ​describe​ ​“alternative”​ ​medicine​ ​and​ ​is​ ​often​ ​met​ ​with skepticism.​ ​What​ ​exactly​ ​is​ ​holistic​ ​health​ ​and​ ​why​ ​is​ ​there​ ​so​ ​much​ ​cynicism surrounding​ ​it?

A​ ​common​ ​misunderstanding​ ​about​ ​holistic​ ​treatment​ ​is​ ​that​ ​it​ ​completely​ ​foregoes modern​ ​medicine.​ ​In​ ​simple​ ​terms,​ ​holistic​ ​health​ ​treatment​ ​addresses​ ​the​ ​wellbeing​ ​of the​ ​mind​ ​and​ ​spirit​ ​in​ ​addition​ ​to​ ​the​ ​body.​ ​In​ ​other​ ​words,​ ​holistic​ ​care​ ​​supplements medication​ ​treatment​ ​rather​ ​than​ ​replacing​ ​it.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​why​ ​holistic​ ​psychiatry​ ​is​ ​an​ ​ideal option​ ​for​ ​people​ ​who​ ​struggle​ ​with​ ​addiction​ ​or​ ​who​ ​don’t​ ​see​ ​results​ ​from​ ​medication alone.

At​ ​Varad,​ ​we​ ​offer​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​services​ ​for​ ​patients​ ​who​ ​need​ ​help​ ​with​ ​depression, addiction,​ ​ADHD,​ ​and​ ​other​ ​disorders.​ ​We​ ​offer​ ​mental​ ​health​ ​counseling​ ​alongside psychiatry​ ​and​ ​medication​ ​management,​ ​TMS​ ​therapy,​ ​health​ ​coaching,​ ​and​ ​much more.
