Reasons For Holistic Therapy
What sets holistic therapy apart from other types of treatment is that it considers the whole person and each of the interdependent parts that can affect overall health. The belief is that if one aspect of a person is not working properly, it negatively affects them as a whole. Holistic medicine treats the cause of problems rather than simply alleviating symptoms. Activities like yoga and meditation are good for the body but also treat psychological and spiritual needs.
Acupuncture is used to treat physical ailments, but it releases negative emotional energy that is stored in the body, reducing anxiety and stress. Holistic therapies are effective at fighting addiction and combined with other types of therapies can increase success rates. These types of therapies can work to help treat some of the causes of a person’s addiction or mental illness as well as the symptoms of withdrawal that are problematic throughout medical detox.
Different Types of Holistic Therapy
Meditation is the practice of focusing the mind for the purpose of religious, spiritual or emotional enrichment. It can take place in many ways, such as in silence, with the use of chants or by using rhythmic breathing.
Many forms of exercise can serve as active therapy. One study demonstrated that individuals with moderate to high levels of regular physical activity were 56% less likely to suffer from insomnia. Other studies have shown a wide range of benefits for physical activity as exercise therapy.
Registered dietitians can assess for drug-food interactions and help people keep track of their food intake. They can help people make healthier grocery and eating selections as well as cook in a healthy and sustainable way, using good nutrition to support mental and physical health.
Yoga refers to a multidisciplinary practice of mental, physical and spiritual fitness that originated in ancient India. In yoga therapy, a certified yoga therapist applies the practice and techniques of yoga to address specific health conditions and concerns.
Incorporating Holistic Therapy in Recovery
The benefit of including holistic therapy in a treatment program is that it can address aspects of health that may not be covered by other therapies. At Our Detox Center and Rehabs, our military Veterans have the option of using holistic treatments as part of their individualized treatment plans. Our Rehab takes each Veterans needs into account and they can work with their therapist to come up with a customized holistic treatment plan. As their health improves and their needs evolve, they can continue to change their treatment plan so that it reflects their growth and progress. Therapists will work with each client to monitor their mood and evaluate how their holistic treatments are helping in their overall recovery.
These supplemental therapies can be another way to boost each Veterans mood, make lifestyle changes, and rid them of physical and emotional pain. Holistic treatments are also a good way for Veterans to get more in touch with their spirituality which can be a crucial part of recovering from an addiction. Utilizing a variety of therapy methods including alternative treatments ensures that all a Veterans needs are met and they can achieve complete recovery.
