Definitions (most are related and interchangeable)


Alternative Health- Alternative Health or Medicine refers to the many alternative approaches to health and healing outside traditional health care and medicine. Examples of alternative approaches include Naturopathy, Chiropractics, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Colon Therapy, Holistic Nutrition, Biblical Medicine, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, etc.

Naturopathy- Naturopathy does not undertake to "diagnose" or "treat diseases," but rather recognizes that the majority of sub-health conditions are cumulative lifestyle effects, and that the underlying cause of what we call "disease" (or, "dis-ease") is improper diet, unhealthy habits, and environmental factors which cause biological imbalances leading to a weakening of the bodies’ natural defenses and subsequent breakdown in health.

Traditional Naturopaths guide and teach their client in natural health approaches such as fasting and detoxification, dietary improvements, the use of herbs, hot baths, aromatherapy, exercise, rest, sunshine, and many other natural health modalities.

Integrative Wellness:

Integrative wellness is healing-oriented therapy that takes into account the whole person (body, mind, and spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle. It makes use of many natural assessment tools and appropriate holistic wellness therapies.

Wellness Studies- The field of wellness studies includes occupations that assess, advise and educate individuals to help improve their overall health. Wellness studies include a variety of occupations, including dietitians, nutritionists, athletic trainers and health educators. It is the study of wellness. 

Natural Health-  Natural health is a self-care system of natural therapies that builds and restores health and wellness by working with the natural recuperative powers of the human body.

Holistic Health-   Holistic Health can be defined as an approach to life. Rather than focusing on illness or specific parts of the body, this  approach to health considers the whole person and how he or she interacts with his or her environment. Holistic health emphasizes the connection of mind, body, and spirit. The goal is to achieve maximum well-being, where everything is functioning at the highest level possible.          

Holistic Nutrition- Holistic Nutrition is a natural approach to health that uses evidence-based techniques for diet, lifestyle and detoxification. Instead of focusing on just one aspect of the person, or taking a one size fits all methodology, holistic nutrition evaluates the complete health history, emotional state, lifestyle habits and current diet habits of an individual to determine the root cause of his or her health issues.

Biblical Studies- Studying the 66 books of the Bible and related topics.
