Nourish Yourself From Within - Dr Marilyn Allen PhD

It is essential to nourish your self from within. All emotions have their place, some, a natural response to what is happening, some to protect us, some to make us contemplate, some to trigger our moral code. Elevating your self worth and a strong sense internal support system is key to self validation and thence nourishment. Work on your positive thinking, well being activities, good nutrition, generosity and kindness. Though it might take time, you will develop inner strength and need less external validation.

Holistic Medicine - Marilyn Allen PhD

Holistic Medicine has been practised over centuries. Holistic Practitioners  integrate Conventional and Alternative Medicine, with a view to prevent illness and promote well being. The treatment focuses on the person as a whole -  psychologically, physically, emotionally, spiritually and  environmentally.  It is good practise to take into consideration, the emotional well being of the patient  at the time of consultation as it is equally important. The Practitioner is better informed about the patient. The patient is involved in the process which psychologically is healthier for patient as he or she feels empowered, thus  more engaging.

Working holistically should be encouraged as good practice across the board, both in conventional and alternative medicine.
