The discussion in this article is to address holistic health, which is in a way a lifestyle that one follows for better health.
The word holistic has its roots in the Greek word ‘hols’, meaning whole. It refers to, among various other things, the art of wholesome living, promoting organic principles. At Herbal Destination, we firmly believe in the theory of following a holistic healthy lifestyle. It can be said that the purest way of living can be followed simply by syncing with nature. It is important, especially in this modern day and age, to recognize the principles of organic living.
Holistic health and living also means that one must harmonize all aspects of their life including social, psychological, physical and emotional. The concept of whole comes from the fact that the human body is made up of several dimensions of health, and it is important to keep each and every one of them in tune with the others, while at the same time, treating them as part of the whole body. This way of life is indeed one that promotes an all-round, balanced healing system.
Look for our list of Retailers (tab above).
There are various categories that fall under Holistic health- Holistic healing, holistic medicine, holistic philosophy to mention a few. Each section highlights the already mentioned principle of a harmonic lifestyle, and oneness with nature. Most of us today are busy with our daily lives, and trapped inside a philosophical cage of sorts, from which we are unwilling to escape. Holistic theories say that it is important to take responsibility with an open heart and mind.
Although commonly referred to as Alternative remedies, holistic health therapies have been proven to relax the body, mind and soul. Herbal supplements and Yoga are some of the solutions that aid in this. Another one that is gaining popularity is Veganism. It is a philosophy and lifestyle where one seeks to exclude the use of animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose.
We recognize also the recent upswing that holistic health has taken. Its approach has been well known, but rarely well understood. We provide solutions to lead you on to the right path of wholesome and organic living. By using herbal products one can be a step closer to leading a holistic life.
Apart from all of this, there are other aspects that are vital for becoming a follower of the holistic healthy lifestyle. Spirituality, regular massages, wearing natural fibers, using energy efficient appliances also feature in the to-do list for a better lifestyle. All in all, it must be stressed that holistic living, though an alternative way of life, is still one that offers several simple benefits in our day-to-day lives. To eliminate the toxins that prevail in our body, and cleansing and purifying the system in order to help us lead better lives is the ultimate aim of holistic living, while keeping intact, the harmonious relationship with nature.
