Working with the Whole Person
Wellness is aimed at maintaining health over the long term; for improvement of the life of the person, not to cure any condition or disease.
Working holistically means BHT does not “treat” any diagnosed or named disease. Hollie uses Self Crafted Wellness protocols to work with the whole person (including the mind, physical body, the emotions and individual habits).
In a society with an already overburdened medical system, BHT works with the whole person, not merely the symptoms to maintain health rather than just treat diseases.
What sort of issues will BHT work with?
You may have noticed there is no list of particular conditions or symptoms for treatment at BHT. While it certainly sounds good to help people with a given diagnosed condition or named disease, and ‘find the cure’, this does not suit the practice of a holistically based protocol.
Holistic Treatment rather than focusing on symptoms
Complaint and disease-centered medicine has value, and the research does lead to benefit for people who have developed serious illness, but the focus on disease can distract from the whole person / whole health and wellness enhancement approach.
“Health is not merely a passive state of freedom from disease, but an active condition of being, of growth, of development, of evolution.” ~ John Thie
