A Holistic Approach To Health: Effects On Longevity

Socrates once feared a health system that focused on only “part” of the body rather than the whole, saying, “for the part can never be well unless the whole is well.”

At CARAVAN, we believe in taking a holistic approach to health- meaning, we want to ensure that our classes offer overall self-care help for your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional needs. This is why we share classes that range from yoga and exercise, to confidence classes.

We want to help you create a well-rounded you, where our holistic-health approach brings you complete wellness. 

Using this holistic approach in regards to our lifestyle choices, such as exercising daily, maintaining a healthy diet and minimizing alcohol consumption, is important for our body’s alignment as well. 

By maintaining several of these healthy lifestyle choices, rather than just one, mortality rates decrease, a 2012 study has found. 

This research followed 531,804 of its subjects lifestyle choices and their effects on mortality rates across 15 studies. The results found that a combination of at least four healthy lifestyle factors is associated with a reduction of mortality risk by 66%. 

Research lead by the The New York Academy of Sciences also notes the impact of a holistic approach to health with positive lifestyle choices by writing, “advances in mind–body medicine research together with healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices can have a significant impact on health maintenance and disease prevention, and hence the prolongation of the human life-span.”

Incorporating and increasing a mixture of healthy lifestyle choices into your daily routine will benefit your longevity. 

For whole-body care, use CARAVAN practices which elevate your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional wellbeing.
