Holistic health, also referred to as holistic medicine, alternative medicine and integrative medicine, is a comprehensive approach to well-being that considers the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of life as closely interconnected and balanced. The practice of holistic health integrates conventional and alternative therapies to prevent and treat disease, and most importantly, to promote optimal health. Holistic health is defined as the unlimited and unimpeded free flow of life force energy through body, mind, and spirit. Holistic health practitioners seek to discover and treat the underlying causes of disease rather than treating symptoms alone. The holistic approach considers prevention much more practical than treatment and certainly more cost-effective. Also, the most effective approach, evokes the patient's own innate healing capabilities. Illness is viewed as a manifestation of an imbalance within the whole person, not as an isolated event.

Practitioners of the holistic health philosophy typically seek or use a wide variety of alternative practices, the most common of which include acupuncture, aromatherapy, ayurveda, bodywork/massage, breath work, chakra cleansing, Chinese medicine, chiropractic, naturopathy, yoga, cannabis cultivation, homeopathy, macrobiotics, meditation, tai chi chuan, and Chi Kung.
