Holistic or conventional approach?

 

The difference between conventional and holistic approaches has been compared to the difference between a mechanic and a gardener. The conventional physician and vet are trained to detect specific diseases in the patient, to assess where the body has malfunctioned and to repair or replace the damaged part.
A holistic practitioner views the patient and disease in terms of their relationship to each other and then assists the body to return to equilibrium, thereby “tending the garden” rather than “fixing the machine”.
