Holistic psychotherapy is a therapeutic approach that heals a person by fixing the relationship between the mind, body, and spirit. Holistic treatment addresses all dysfunctional aspects of a person’s life in tandem. In medical practice, holistic means addressing the whole person, and includes their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, while factoring in external factors.
Holistic Addiction Treatment
Addiction treatment programs that utilize holistic treatment methods recognize that a person must be healed entirely, throughout all aspects of their being, in order to successfully maintain their recovery.
Substance abuse forces its way into every part of a person’s life, and so logically, the addiction must be detox from not just the body, but the mind and spirit as well.
Holistic addiction therapy approaches a patient as a complex being in need of healing rather than attempting to separate the addiction and cut it out. Holistic teachings highlight the fact that one issue within a person’s life can lead to concerns in other areas. For example, anxiety can lead to substance abuse which can lead to malnutrition. In order to ensure a successful recovery, treatment must address not only the addiction but the resulting malnutrition and the catalyst of the addiction, anxiety.
Recovery Sensitive Holistic Therapy
Addictions Medicine specialists have been treating their patients in a holistic fashion for decades, unlike other doctors. For example, cardiologists write a few prescriptions for their patients recovering from a heart attack and do not properly address their patients in a holistic fashion such as suggesting, tracking, and enforcing:
- Stress management
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Increase alkaline green fiber foods
- Decrease total protein consumption to one-third of each collective meal, a seek protein in sauces rather than browned, baked, grilled, sautéed, grilled, or fried
- Stop sugar, starch, and flour, including gluten-free
- One mile minimum brisk walk daily after achieving a healthy weight
