With scientific and technological developments in medicine, we are in a very successful period in diagnosis and some treatments. However, for some diseases, the same is not the case with actual and cause-oriented treatments. An increase is observed in some chronic diseases such as diabetes, insulin resistance, depression, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune diseases, infertility, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia. Treatments that can be applied in most of these are only symptomatic, that is, aimed at suppressing the complaint. Especially in such diseases, we must change our approach and perspective in order to be able to provide a true treatment for the cause. So, we have to see the big picture and look at the problem holistically.
According to the World Health Organization, health; not just sickness and the absence of disease; It is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Actually, this definition expresses the holistic point of view very well. However, in practice, these concepts, namely mental, mental and physical problems, are handled separately. The same is true for systems in the body. However, we are a whole with our body, mind and spirit. Our organs and all our systems are in communication with each other. It seems unlikely that we will be able to achieve real success in our treatments by ignoring this fact. Complementary medicine methods, which take the holistic perspective as a principle, can shed light on this field.
