holistic health

A practical workbook

Spiritual health is considered a fundamental component of health and a vital component of whole-person care. A practical and ethical framework by which to integrate spiritual aspects into holistic healthcare is therefore important. 

This workbook focuses on principles for quality spiritual care, with recommendations on how to implement these principles. 

The framework also describes possible catalysts and impediments to quality spiritual health.

Many people report a need for spiritual care. Not only do many patients intuitively discern that there are more to health than the physical, an extensive review of existing research also shows that religious and spiritual care activities improve the mental and physical health of patients and their families when attended to throughout the care process, Koenig, King and Carson (2012).

The application and expression of spirituality in different health contexts are subjected to cultural relevance. From the East. where scientists have validated the physical and emotional impact when health professionals prescribe Forest Therapy or Forest Bathing as part of a holistic care plan, to the West, where surgical disciplines such as orthopaedic surgery recommend incorporating spiritual care for patients who have undergone surgery, as it improves, amongst other things, overall satisfaction with the treatment outcomes.

Spirituality as part of a holistic health approach is receiving renewed attention. The constant need for spiritual care opens an opportunity for people to take responsibility for their own health in a holistic way - a process that is facilitated by working through the book.
