Holistic healing deals with comprehensive healing techniques which believe in managing or eliminating the imbalances one might be experiencing in life. However, holistic therapies do not concentrate on the physical manifestations of the problem alone, although the very reason for seeking holistic treatments might have been physical repercussions such as pain or discomfort.

This form of healing takes into consideration the mind, the body and the soul of the affected and attempts to strike a coherent balance amongst all, for a smooth and trouble free existence. This is where it differs from alternative, complementary and integrative medicine, all of which focus on physical discomfort more than anything else.

For instance, Ruchika Jain had been suffering from severe recurrent headaches for the past couple of years and was seeking an effective treatment for the same. However, medicinal therapies were unable to address the issue effectively. So much so that Ruchika had no other option but to resort to painkillers. This is when she adopted holistic healing therapies which addressed the problem successfully rather than dwelling on the pain itself. The reason for the pain was unravelled finally.


It was a stressful event that had somewhat shocked Ruchika a couple of years back. Every time her subconscious mind went back to the memories of this shocking event, she suffered from headaches. Holistic healing techniques have helped her to tackle her latent fears suitably, reducing the intensity of these pain attacks. However, holistic healing should not be considered as an alternative to conventional medical care in all cases. Some critical illnesses can only be addressed through medicinal cures.
