General health and well-being
General health and well-being is compromised or enhanced by the affects of both internal and external influences.
The significance of outside factors influencing health is now being taken seriously and has been realized and acknowledged by the main stream medical profession who now practice a Comprehensive Health Care system for complete patient care.
“…One thing is clear to me as a social democrat: Health care is a public service. We advocate taxpayer-funded basic care and the strengthening of social security systems based on the principle of solidarity. This is the only way to establish and ensure protection against the risks of illness, especially for the poorest of the poor. Private, for-profit systems are the wrong choice…. Karin Roth

In fact, when you really consider the comprehensive concept has it not been around for many years? Take a look at the method of preparation of our service men and women or sports men and women. To perform at elite levels the mind, body, spirit and the influences over and above the basic necessities of life such as relationships, emotional states and finances are all taken into consideration.
Combining Factors of Comprehensive Health Care
Whole body health or Comprehensive Health Care takes into account the combining factors of :
response to illness
and the effect of illness on a person’s ability to meet their self-care needs
We must take into account all influences upon us at any given time, as individuals, a family unit or working team, if we are to perform at our optimum or accurately assess how to improve emotional states for better outcomes.
We all know diet, nutrition and hormones impact on health but from the list above you can see how our well being is actually determined by much more than physical needs.
There is unwavering evidence of the positive results emotional care has over and above providing basic survival needs.
Nurturing and encouragement, love, attention and emotional validation are consistently proven to increase –
physical and mental health
Simultaneously Reducing –
- recovery time after illness
- Recovery time following accident
- Recovery time in conjunction with reduction and some cases elimination of subsequent effects of trauma
Expedited as a direct result of TLC ie emotional care, understanding and acknowledgement.
