My approach to health includes the whole person. This approach is also known as a holistic approach. Although some people associate weird stuff with the word “holistic,” there is nothing strange about the word itself. Holistic simple means whole. It comes from the Greek word holos, meaning “whole” or “all.”
The mind-body connection
“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Proverbs 17:22 (NLT)
A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones. Proverbs 14:30 (NLT)
You already know how important your physical health is, but do you also realize how crucial taking care of your mental and emotional health is? You are made of three parts – body, spirit, and soul; and all these parts are interconnected and make up the whole person you are. So, any issue in one part of your being will also affect your entire being. For instance, when you are down emotionally, you also seem tired physically and unable to function as effectively as usual. And, when you are sick or physically exhausted, it’s hard to engage in any mental activity or keep up with your spiritual routines. That’s why I take into consideration your well-being as a whole, so you can function optimally.

Beyond the plate
It’s undeniable that food is the foundation of good health. However, keep in mind that things that nourish you go way beyond the plate. A deep relationship with God through prayer and meditation on His word, enjoyable work, meaningful relationships, enjoyable physical activities, hobbies, self-care, and other things that give you joy and satisfaction are all food for your spirit and soul.
In my “whole person” approach to health, I encourage people to be intentional about nourishing their spirit and soul, as they do for their bodies. Without proper nourishment for your whole person, you won’t be able to achieve or maintain good health.
