What Is A “holistic” approach?”

There are many holistic approaches to mental, emotional and physical health care.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has evolved over thousands of years. TCM practitioners use various psychological and/or physical approaches (such as acupuncture and tai chi) as well as herbal products to address health problems.

India has a rich history of traditional system of medicine based upon six systems, out of which Ayurveda stands to be the most ancient, most widely accepted, practiced and flourished indigenous system of health care. The other allied systems of health care in India are Unani, Siddha, Homeopathy, Yoga and Naturopathy.

Transformation Hypnosis is proven to be the most effective and efficient protocol to resolve all Mental, Emotional and Physical issues from A to Z. The two most relevant independent studies 1969 and 1970 are: The Secret of How Hypnosis Works Does Hypnosis Work? A Comparison Study by Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. published in American Health Magazine, (acquired by Time Warner’s Health magazine1999) reported the following findings.

These studies have stood the test of time for 55 and 54 years respectively.

• Psychoanalysis/Psychotherapy: 38% recovery after 600 sessions

• Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions

• Transformational Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions.

Challenging The Inevitability of Inherited Mental Illness Challenging the inevitability of inherited mental illness – Counseling TodayChinese Philosophy and Chinese MedicineBefore addressing connections between Chinese philosophy and Chinese medicine it is necessary to make two clarifications on the meaning of the term Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine could in principle refer to: (1) the full range of medical systems used in contemporary China, including Western biomedicine; (2) the traditional indigenous Chinese medicine that is conventionally referred to as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); and (3) other indigenous medical systems, distinct from but TCM, practiced by non-Chinese or minorities who live in areas that historically were part of China or are now part of the Peoples Republic of China, for example, Korean and Tibetan medicine. For purposes of this essay I use the term Chinese medicine only to refer to TCM, but including issues of the integration of TCM and Western medicine. Second, Chinese medicine, in the sense of TCM just discussed, includes a wider range of practices than does Western medicine. In particular it includes: (1) “medicine” in its conventional sense of practices that cure or prevent disease, treat disease and injury and assist in childbirth, etc.; (2) a range of practice to prevent disease in the broadest sense by maintaining health, including practices associated with the martial arts such as Taijiquan (also known as T’ai chi); and (3) a range of practices that extend health by seeking longevity. In particular, a clear account of Chinese medicine cannot confine itself to the first of these only. Within a Chinese historical context, medicine ( yi 醫) was one of several qualitative sciences. It included “nurturing life” ( yang sheng 養生), a broad category that comprised a wide range of self-cultivation techniques. In later periods, medicine also included materia medica ( bencao 本草) and internal ( nei dan 內丹) and external ( wai dan 外丹) alchemy. The early Chinese qualitative and quantitative sciences were specific, with no unified notion of science (Sivin 1982 and 1990). Secondly, medical works, like other scientific works, were classified as technical specialties, distinct from generalist works, including the “Masters” texts associated with Chinese philosophy (Raphals 2008–2009, forthcoming). Medicine and its related disciplines appear in the last section of the Bibliographic Treatise (chapter 30) of the Standard History of the Han Dynasty ( Han shu ). This Treatise consists of six sections. The first two (“Six Classics” and “Masters”) contain philosophical works. The last two are technical: “Numbers and Techniques” (S hu shu 數術), and “Recipes and Methods” (F ang ji 方技). The latter includes works on medicine and longevity, including the categories of medical classics ( yi jing 醫經), classical recipes ( jing fang 經方), sexual arts ( fang zhong 房中, also referred to as “arts of the bedchamber”), and immortality practices ( shen xian 神仙). These chapters reflect the concerns and expertise of the technical and ritual specialists closely associated with the “Recipe Masters” ( fang shi 方士) associatehttps://plato.stanford.edu/entries/chinese-phil-medicine/
