DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WESTERN AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINES

Western medicines have been mechanistic Doctors and other health care specialists have pictured the body as a machine with separate parts that must be treated separately. The mechanistic approach to medicine stresses the physician�s role in treating diseases, downplays mental and emotional factors that many diseases and ignores completely the spiritual aspect of health and well being. In sharp contrast to this mechanistic approach is the holistic approach. The holistic approach helps bring the mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual dimensions of the person�s being in to environmental harmony i.e. the whole person and employs holistic principles and the elements of a total integrated treatment programmed with emphasis on any the repay or treatment that stimulates person�s own healing process or promotes optimum health.

The philosophy of holism also stresses on the individual�s responsibility for maintaining good health through his active participation in the healing or health care. American Holistic Medical association has defined the holistic system as �Holistic health is that science of well being that emphasizes balance between physical, mental and spiritual realms, as well as overall harmony with one�s environment.�
