What is Wholistic Health?

The Yukon Wholistic Health Network (YWHN) defines wholistic health as “that condition which results when an individual assumes responsibility for his/her own health in a whole sense – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – recognizing the interconnectedness and balance among these aspects. The tendency is toward natural means of achieving this interconnectedness and balance. The assumption of this responsibility addresses the health and well being of the whole person, and acknowledges the interrelationship between the individual, the environment, and the world at large. Rather than focusing on dis-ease, the emphasis is on wellness and ease, largely through prevention.”
