Diabetes care needs more than drugs. There is a holistic approach for diabetics living with their illness.
Holistic treatment deals with the entire person. In the health care field, holistic treatment involves integrating the patient’s mind, body and spirit in the healing process.
Patients are encouraged to maintain a positive attitude and use physical activity, spirituality, visualizatio, aromatherapy, music, art as tools to help them cope with their condition. With non-infectious diseases such as diabetes, there is evidence that shows how a healthy lifestyle and mindset can have a positive impact on how people deal with their diagnosis.
The motivation to seek help and understand diabetes begins in the mind. One of the components of Holistic Therapy is being able to mentally grasp how the thought and healing processes are interrelated. After the initial shock of being a diabetic has lessened, the choice to educate oneself and make appropriate lifestyle changes — or wallow in self-pity — can have a major impact on one’s quality of life.
