Overview

This book is the result of several years of research conducted in Denmark on the quality of life of more than 10,000 Danes. Quality of life (QOL) and health are not the same. QOL is the state of being or existence of the person, while health is the state of body, mind and spirit. QOL is the state of your totality, your wholeness. QOL is influenced to some degree by our health, but much more, according to contemporary scientific knowledge, by a few core dimensions of life related to love, consciousness, gender and sexuality. In this book you will find the following:

Theory of holistic healing, existential holistic group therapy
*
Group intervention, therapeutic touch as a classic art of healing
*Tools for holistic medicine, biomedicine and the physician today
*Lifestyle, health, psychoactive drugs, sex and quality of life
*Chronic illness, pain, alcoholism, whiplash associated disorder
*Coronary heart disease, cancer, HIV and quality of life

The improvement of personal philosophy of life seems to be the essence of holistic medicine and helping the patient to assume more responsibility.
