Suzan Walker, President of the American Holistic Health Association (AHHA) (1996)asserts that one of the accepted usages of the term “holistic” means “a whole made up of interdependent parts” usually referred to as:1) the mind/body connection,2) mind/body/spirit, or 3) physical/mental/emotional/spiritual aspects.”The AHHA promotes the following holistic health approach to create and sustainwellness:
Balance and integrate your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects
Establish respectful, cooperative relationships with others and the environment
Make wellness-oriented lifestyle choices
Actively participate in your health decisions and healing process
