BRIDGING THE GAP IN HEALTH CARE 1 – THE BASICS OF WHOLISTIC ASSESSMENT.This book discusses philosophical and conceptual ideas designed to help promote wholistic thinking in health care, with some small practical applications.

Thus, allowing me to completely integrate all concepts, linked or disparate, into my own unique paradigm of health and healing…Patrick Carr (Osteopath)
