Overview

Holistic healing is based on the belief that a patient should be helped by a single doctor, who, according to author Dr. Diamond, believes that “A true understanding of a patient is an understanding of his or her total universe.” The caregiver must recognize the patient’s individuality, as well as appreciate the myriad of interrelationships in that person’s universe. In Holism and Beyond, Dr. Diamond presents a complete explanation of his healing process, which epitomizes the very essence of holism.

George J. Goodheart
The body heals itself. The healer within can be approached from without. The recovery potential of man waits for the hand, the heart and the mind of a physician, like my friend John Diamond, to bring this holistic potential to actuality.
— Founder, Applied Kinesiology
