Welcome to Health Promotion Trust
The term Holistic Health or Holistic Healing comes from the word whole, meaning complete. There is no one universal definition for Holistic Health, but there seems to be a common thread that runs through all of the definitions of Holistic Health. That is, to look at the self from a whole (holistic) perspective and to understand the mind, body and spirit connection and the importance of balancing all aspects
The definition of holistic health is simple and inclusive. It is your overall state of wellness on all levels of your being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It covers the health of your entire being and extends to your resources, environment and relationships.
The World Health Organization’s definition on Health is ‘A state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’ Sustainable approaches towards health development must be holistic taking into account all the factors that influence health. The millennium development goals for health, the targets and the indicators are also to be looked at.
