Whole Health Education - holistic health information counseling

The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Hippocrates
How would you like to...
-be listened to in a deeply respectful way, with unconditional acceptance?
-understand the cause and effect of disease and "
the big picture of health®"?
-have personalized health research information so you may enjoy better patient-doctor communication and better health?
-have the knowledge you need to control your healthcare management and prevent disease?

Whole Health Education is a holistic health information model which

an understanding of the big picture of health®, the whole picture of health®, which includes the physical, emotional, nutritional, environmental and spiritual aspects of our lives, and the impact they have on our health, well-being, and happiness.

...a relationship-centered, shared-decision-making process which invites the individual to participate in their own healing and self management process, through informed choices and options. Both the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) has identified guidelines for the practice of health care in all settings, which include: "patients at the center of their healthcare decision making; care for the whole person; and evidenced-based health education" as key guidelines.

...an understanding of how stress and stress adaptation influence health, wellness and disease outcomes.

...personalized research information, making available the most current scientific and medical data including integrative medicine references.

No prescription is more valuable than knowledge.
C. Everett Koop, MD, former Surgeon General of the U.S.
