Treating the Whole Person . . . Mind, Body, Spirit

Posted: Section: Articles

Holistic or integrative health care is something that has been practiced for centuries, but seems to be easily forgotten in our current, fast-paced lifestyle.

With so many things for everyone to do, it is often only the most immediate problems that get cared for—the broken bones, the strong illnesses, the aches and pains. We accept the medicines we're given and hope they will quickly fix the problem so that we can go about our lives. What we often forget is that we have an entire body and soul to care for—not just an arm or a cold-ridden head.  

It is necessary—albeit vital—that we care for "all" of us, the entire spectrum of our physical, emotional, and spiritual self. This may not come naturally, but the reasoning is: How can our bodies heal or recover properly if one of these aspects of our lives is ignored? How can we retain any kind of physical health if we are not supporting those other parts of us that contribute so much to how we act, think and feel?

Caring for the Whole Person

Holistic care goes far beyond the normal fixes we apply to ourselves every day. There are several areas that need to be tended to:

  • Mind-Body Connection

Often, a health issue with the body can indicate something more internal. Stress is an excellent example—how many times have any of us gotten muscle aches or the flue, caused entirely by stress? It is essential that we care for our minds in the best ways we can, and eliminate as much stress and worry as possible. Keeping your mind and body aligned will benefit your life in many ways.

  • Activity

Of course, it is still crucial to tend to the physicalities of our bodies. Exercise is needed frequently, in whatever form you can give it. Even a brisk walk in the evenings is an excellent way to de-stress.  We are not meant to be static beings, we are meant to move, play and work.  Then at other times, just pause for a few minutes to enjoy the beauty of this world that is all around you. Having a healthy Mind/Body connection is ideal, and remember--an active body perpetuates an active mind. 

  • Dietary Choices 

It is well known that what types of foods you eat and how often you eat them has a direct impact on your health—both physically and mentally. Choose wisely and eat the foods that promote good health. It’s also important to remember that treats you enjoy, that are not-so-healthy, are ok to help you feel better—but its important to keep it in moderation.

  • Spirituality

This can come in any form, and is what each person decides is right for them. Is it Christianity? Buddhism? Or even alone time in a place that is loved, contemplating beliefs and blessings? Spirituality is very individualized, but globally important. This gives support to mental and emotional health, which will in turn reflect through good physical health. Even just taking the time for yourself, to recognize your accomplishments and celebrate who you are, can feed your spirituality. Whatever the choice, make it your frequent routine.

Red Mountain Sedona is a place of healing and peace to help young adults escape the turmoil of sadness and addiction, or to merely help them recognize their own potential. To find out more, call us at 855-998-5272.
